Pocket-sized waterproof gilet
When the weather for your day’s ride is looking changeable, the Pro Team Rain Gilet is designed to keep you prepared and protected, without the bulk of a jacket.
A pared-back take on the popular Rapha Race Cape, the Pro Team Rain Gilet shares the same polylaminate waterproof fabric – race-proven by Team Sky – keeping your core protected from rain and road spray. Its simple construction and light weight make it perfect for stowing in a jersey pocket when conditions improve or the pace picks up.
The development of the Rain Gilet began when Team Sky riders requested a garment with more protection than a classic windproof gilet, but without the bulk of a jacket – something that they could hold in a jersey pocket during a race, eliminating the need for multiple trips to the team car. The resulting gilet shares the same form-fitting cut as the Race Cape to prevent the fabric from flapping in the wind.
The Pro Team Rain Gilet is indispensible on spirited group rides and races, when pocket space is at a premium. It has a large, low-friction zip with a textured handle, making it easy to use while wearing gloves, a dropped tail to keep riders’ backs dry, and Pro Team detailing.
