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 Keep cold wind at bay I bought this a couple of months back and love it. It keeps the wind out and body warm which surprised me being so light weight. The off-centre zipper keeps it from cutting into your neck when done right up, and there is ample storage in the pockets for essentials. I really like the reflective piping detail too which is quite striking. The cut around the arm is just right, as is the length both back and front. I'm 5'8 and size 10 and the Medium is a really nice fit as I like to have enough room underneath for a thick base layer in the milder winter months. I hardly notice that I'm wearing it - so for me it's doing its job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best gillet ever! I bought this in the summer, looking for something light to commute in that also provided pockets to put my keys, etc, in. Not only was it perfect for the summer, it's also continued to be my go-to shell as it gets colder in the Autumn (I just layer it with a long-sleeved base layer). The best feature is the mesh back, that really stops my back from getting too hot. I also love the slightly raised collar (especially now that it's colder), and the small pocket in the front (perfect for a key card). I'm hoping to get another one in a brighter colour - so that I'm a bit more visible on the road.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well designed for the cyclist's needs The rapha gilet is well designed. I love the big pockets at the back which accomodate a rain jacket and other items you want to carry and the really love the small zipped pocket for valuables. The gilet is thoughtfully designed for a cyclist. In addition the women's cut fits so well into the waist which is something you don't get when you have to resort to buying the mens version of cycle clothes due to lack of options in the market. My only wish is that Rapha would make more of thier other gilets with pockets as well as they are great for using all uear round!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another rock solid output from Rapha Originally I had the black version of this vest and after riding in it for a few years I needed to down size! I passed my black vest on and decided to replace it with a brighter colored vest, to keep me visible when I ride in the countryside. The cut of these vests are classic and flattering to the female rider. The colour is quite unique (as is most of the Rapha pallet) and great to mix and match with other kit. Easy to roll up and store in a jersey pocket. the fabric wear really well, but really do we expect anything less from these guys!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential bit of kit You know you have those bits of cycling kit that you would never go on a trip without? This is one of those. This gilet fits perfectly, and looks great. But more importantly it's wind proof, water resistant and folds up nice and small in your back pocket. I always have one with me for descending when I'm away on cycling trips to keep the wind chill out, and wear it loads on rides in the UK too. I have two now in different colours. The orange one is particularly good in low light levels and really shows up well but without being 'fluoro'.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from light,and tight I bought the large size which came up snug and a bit short in length for my liking. Back pockets therefore need dislocated shoulders to reach easily, but the zipped side pocket useful.being a bit on the tight side it tended to ride up a bot and I found myself having to keep pulling it down. However the material and workmanship the usual high standard that one comes to expect from raphe.here in nz I was clobbered with a huge import tax so wont be returning it to you .....just will need to shed a few pounds so theres a good incentive .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great colour! I purchased this to go over the top of the Classic Jersey. Should have purchased the next size up as it runs very small, and is extremely tight across the bust. Not good for a D cup.

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.
