Lightweight, packable and water-resistant insulation

Long-distance riders often encounter a wide range of conditions, so a lightweight layer that is both warm and packable is essential. The Insulated Brevet Gilet provides exceptional warmth, while highly breathable Polartec Alpha insulation ensures you won’t overheat during harder efforts.

The gilet features reflective detailing for visibility, and a water-shedding DWR (durable water repellent) coating for added protection in rain showers. Thanks to the hydrophobic properties of the Polartec Alpha insulation, the gilet wont saturate in the same way that natural down insulation will, and is quick drying. Mesh side panels stretch to fit over full pockets and a zip placket keeps out the wind, and when not in use, the gilet rolls into an elasticated loop at the neck to stay tightly stored. Please note that the two-way zip included on this product at launch has been replaced by a standard zip.

Karen Whittier, product manager for insulation at Polartec, explains the science behind Polartec Alpha:

Polartec Alpha was engineered as an active insulation to regulate core body temperatures during both dynamic and static activities. This ‘adaptive’ breathability helps eliminate the need for shedding or adding layers while on the move, making it ideal for cycling.

By keeping moisture vapour moving freely through the fabric, it increases overall air exchange and drastically speeds up dry times, providing thermal regulated comfort. Polartec Alpha is also highly compressible, made with a stable core… that prevents ‘fibre migration’ to keep a uniform consistency, even after heavy wear and repeated laundering.

  • Quick drying and hydrophobic Polartec Alpha insulation
  • Self-storing into band at neck
  • DWR (durable water repellent) coating
  • Wind resistant fabric

Body sizing

Back Length: measure from the bottom of where your collar sits/base of the neck to the bottom of your spine.
Arm length: measure from where the seam would start at shoulder to bottom of the wrist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product Great Product, excellent Style. Keeps the Chest & Core warm, Great Fit, Snug, but still flexible enough to reach pockets in jersey underneath. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never Knew I needed this Rapha have created a product I never Knew I needed. When Its an early start, dry and cold, but you know it will warm up a bit. No need to overheat in a thermal jersey or winter merino.....A summer jersey and arm warmers will do. If your core gets too warm just undo the zipper. I love it........ It can be used on Alpine descents early or late in the season too

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An essential This item quickly turned into an essential for me. It does a great job of keeping me warm enough over a range of temps without being bulky. No overheating, due to the mess venting on the sides. When it does warm up, it rolls up quickly and compactly, and fits easily in a jersey pocket. it also looks sharp with the high vis pink and white stripes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect-ish Fantastic bit of kit that magically keeps your core temp just right without over heating. Would be even better if it had pockets but then it wouldn't pack down so small

If worn in heavy rain, will the insulation still provide warmth?

Asked by: Bugs
Hi, this gilet is not intended for use as an outer layer in heavy rain. It is water-resistant and Polartec Alpha is one of the quickest drying insulation materials available.

I have a brevet ladies windstopper jacket size med which is a perfect fit . What size would I need in the brevet insulated gilet?

Asked by: Helen 51
Hi, this gilet has a snug fit but this is not a women's specific product and so you may need to size down one size. As always, we do have a free 90 day returns policy if needed.

How does the brevet insulated gilet compare to the woman's rapha gilet in terms of fit in the hip and waist? As far as chest measure a medium insulated gilet is apparently equal to a large woman's. Just want to make sure I get sizing correct.

Asked by: lady_colnago
Hi, the Brevet Insulated Gilet has a straighter fit that does not come in as much at the waist and out at the hips like the Women's Rapha Gilet.

Does this vest still have the two way zip that has caused issues on other gilets such as the pro team lightweight?

How does the insulation compare to Primaloft when it comes to water resistence? And how water resistant is the outer fabric/seems? 

Asked by: AC84
Hi, this insulation has better moisture transfer and is faster drying than Primaloft. The outer fabric is wind, but not water resistant. However, it does have a DWR finish to provide a degree of water resistance. Polartec Alpha has great breath ability, and this gilet's functionality would be defeated by the use of a laminate waterproof fabric.

Hi, how does this compare to the Rapha Gilet in terms of warmth?

Asked by: Bern03
Hi, this gilet is warmer than the Rapha Gilet. It is made with Polartec Alpha to ensure it is still highly breathable.

Is this suitable for washing after EVERY ride or is that not advisable? 

Asked by: R_Am
Hi, this gilet could be washed after every ride but this is unlikely to be necessary as it does not sit directly against the skin.
