Reviews:

‟I can safely say that this one has stood out as my favorite, and is the one that I’ll be sporting pre-riding courses, out on endurance rides, and riding around town.”
– Cyclocross Magazine

To wear, it’s extremely comfortable and effective, with pleasantly breathable fabric. The dropped tail gives plenty of coverage without interfering with the saddle, the fit is spot-on, with a size medium roughly equivalent to a pretty standard UK12 and the neck is snug and keeps out the wind without being over tight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this vest The pockets are super handy and I especially love the small zipper pocket up front for a key. Stylish enough to wear with jeans when running around town or out for a coffee. Runs a tad large; my preferred size was already sold out but i love this enough i'll keep it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very stylish Bought this to wear with my core and souplesse jerseys and they look great together. It is not elasticized at the waist and a bit roomy, but completely adjustable with the pretty pink elastic cords at the bottom. very pleased with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and packable but warm! I bought this in the sale as I wanted a more high vis but packable gilet for winter riding. I wore it for the first time a week ago when the temperatures dropped and it started snowing. Despite it being super lightweight and packs into a jersey packet easily my core was toasty warm. I love the cut and colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Meets my windy day needs! Besides the excellent quality and craftmanship of Rapha clothes, I truly appreciate the pockets: 2 in the back and a small zippered pocket in the front.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great gilet Love this gilet and it's so useful. It is wind and rain resistant so a great addition to my cycle wardrobe. Any chance of a top in a similar colour? Quality, well designed gilet, I love it. I have one in black also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic, flattering gilet. Looks great on. Packable, lightweight gilet. I have worn this loads since I bought it. Great for cooler, breezy days when full jacket not required. Packs down easily into jersey pocket. Looks lovely on. Good in light shower. Wind proofing very effective. Great bargain at the moment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish, lovely colour I purchased this for those days when you need a bit more warmth around the body but it can be taken off and folded small into a pocket when warmed up. It is a lovely cut, shaped at the waist so you don't look like a sack of potatoes. Particularly, now the autumn is nearly upon us, the burnt orange is a gorgeous warm autumnal colour. The pockets at the back are roomy enough for usual bits and there's a useful little zip pocket at the front for a key or credit card. I've paired this up with the merino arm warners in the same colour for a little bit of co-ordination! Well done Rapha.

Does this fit the same as the women's brevet gilet as I found that was very long which did not sit properly  and the neck was huge, it was shaped more for a woman. I found this shape did not fit me and seemed the men's small could be a better option. 

Asked by: 4616
Hi, the fit is similar to the women's Brevet Gilet, and does take a women's body shape into consideration. If you find this is not suitable for you, another option would be to order the mens version.

I cannot see the back. Are there any pocketsin back? How many? Can you please post a pic with something in them like a standard pen or pencil?

Asked by: Monica
Hi, there are large elasticated pockets on the rear. These will fit your usual riding gear, such as food, mini repair kit, inner tube etc.
