Packable wind gilet

The Pro Team Lightweight Gilet is a thin outer layer that can be worn all year round. Extremely lightweight, it can pack down to be stored in a jersey pocket until a cold descent or as the sun drops.

Upgraded for 2017 and made of a new fabric which offers greater stretch for an improved fit. More reflective elements have been included on the gilet this year: down the side seam on either side, on the seams of the shoulders and a logo on the back rear of the gilet. The two-way VISLON® zip, allowing you to unzip from the bottom for easy access to your jersey pockets, is also improved. As with all Pro Team products, everything about this cycling gilet is designed with performance and comfort in mind: a mesh fabric on the inner collar and perforated holes on the neck help you avoid overheating and the directly applied silicon on the front hem helps keep the gilet in place during hard rides.

Whether worn during warm-ups, early morning starts, or as a last resort backup if the weather suddenly changes, the Pro Team Lightweight Gilet has your back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Nailed it I have two other lightweight Gilets from different brands that cannot compare to this product although pricing was similar. The way this gilet is made I could wear it all day without overheating. And yet it provides ample protection from the elements in those early morning starts and looks smashing to boot! I also love the bonus reflective details, it's a huge plus for me to be visible at all times. I am used to the pro team stuff running smaller, but the medium was not super fit on my 75kg frame. I'm very happy with the size

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight/Compact This Gilet fits like a glove and folds up into a very small bundle which easily fits into your jersey pocket. As always, it is beautifully constructed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Staggeringly good If, like me, you run hot and usually cook in gilets and jackets then this is the answer to your prayers. Worn it in 14°C windy rides and an utterly miserable soaking wet, non stop rainy ride and it performed equally well in both. Keeps you warm but not sweaty. And soaked through it still kept me warm and dry (even though it isn't meant to be waterproof). Packs down to nothing too, but haven't found cause to take it off yet- and I run really hot! Definitely having the jacket too when it arrives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this vesr The fit is perfect, it's light, it looks and takes the chill off the chest for spring/ fall days

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fit - No Flap Worn this gilet on 2 or 3 rides already, absolutely great in changeable spring/autumn weather. Folds very small (half a rear pocket). Sizing true to guide. Fit first class - just enough stretch where needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You've done it!!! AS a long time Rapha fan I'd been waiting for a PT gilet for ages but the first version was poor with the dodgy double zip and in my normal small PT size (I'm 171cm and 63kg with a skinny torso) it was way too tight. So back it went, but when this new version was released I thought I'd give it a shot - man I'm so glad I did. It's PERFECT!!! The new double zip is faultless, the new fabric is amazing (stretchy as described) and it fits like a glove. I've marked it as running slightly larger but that's larger than the previous v1.0 gilet. One other feature that I love is the semi perforated PT 'bars' on the lower left of the front that shows through your jersey colour - it's those wee touches that nail it. I've now bought a second one to store away. Well done Rapha.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight and looks great but flaps a bit Had this a few weeks and used it on several rides, was great on a chilly(ish) early morning Highland Sportive especially as I could open it up from the bottom of the zip for very easy access to gels etc. Great usual pro fit (I am 5ft 11, thin and got the Medium). Only downside that I have found that it flaps in the wind on the shoulders. It has been windy the past 3 rides I have used it on but it's becoming a bit annoying - pity would have been perfect apart from that.

Hi there, What's the difference between this 7 the 'Classic Gilet II'? Cheers

Asked by: WoodT
Hi, the Pro Team Lightweight Gilet is thin, lightweight, easy to pack and store in a jersey pocket and has a full mesh back for exertion. The Classic Gilet II is similar but it is also more resistant to Wind and water and it only has one mesh stripe down the back, so technically a bit warmer.

Hi, will this gilet fit fine over a Classic or Brevet Jersey in the same size? I am a Size S. thanks

Asked by: Nugget
Hi, please refer to the size guide as far as possible. Given this gilet has a stretchy mesh back we would suggest you try a Small and should you need to exchange, we have a 90 days return period.

Is the pro team lightweight gilet windproof? i.e. will it be as effective for descents as the Rapha gilet?

Asked by: FrankTW
This Gilet is not in itself Windproof but is designed to be extremely lightweight and to be used in cooler climates, including descents.

Hello what are the differences between this and the brevet gilet?

Asked by: My Name is Thor
Hi, the Brevet Gilet has side mesh panels and a top mesh panel at the back for breathability, it also has enhanced hi-vis and a more relaxed fit. The Pro Team Lightweight Gilet is extremely lightweight so it can pack down easily into a jersey pocket, has a full mesh back for breathability and has more of a race fit.
