Modern manufacturing meets hand-woven elegance
The Classic Gilet is an essential Rapha garment, providing total windproofing and protection from the rain when needed, while packing down small enough to slip almost unnoticed into a jersey pocket.
The Collector’s Edition has taken the blueprint of the garment and replaced the rear mesh panel with a hand-woven fabric which provides the same exceptional ventilation while adding a subtle heritage-inspired design element.
The main body is constructed from a windproof and shower resistant fabric with added reflective piping and a full-length, offset zip to eliminate cold spots when layering. A lockdown zip puller keeps the gilet fastened and a fleece chin guard prevents rubbing. A dropped tail protects from road spray.
The gilet features two elasticated cargo pockets to the rear to store riding essentials and an additional front zip pocket for keys and valuables.
