Core Rain Jacket£100.00

Please select an item above

The new standard in lightweight outer layers

The Core Rain Jacket is the ideal outer layer for rides with a chance of rain and wind. Extremely lightweight, it folds down small to comfortably fit in your back pocket, ready to be whipped out when it starts raining or the wind picks up. Colour matched throughout, the jacket has a clean, refined finish with collar tipping and a subtly stitched-in Rapha armband.

The jacket has fully taped seams and an AquaGuard® zip for waterproofing. Six ventilation holes under the armpits allow heat to escape if you’re riding hard while the on-bike fit is aided by an adjustable draw cord at the hem and elasticated inner cuffs, which ensure a perfect fit on your wrists. Reflective elements have also been applied to the sleeves and rear for improved visibility on the roads.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very good basic rain cape For me it works well as both a rain and wind jacket and pretty light too. Folds well. Colour quality in cahrtreuse is a much cleaner higher colour than ive seen in rain coats before but it remains to be seen how well that colour lasts. Rain beads although ive not been in a whole day of downpour in this jacket. For me being right handed the inner overlapped backing to the top 4 inches of the zip at the neck end is on the wrong side and It catches slightly when doing it up one handed whilst on the bike a little more difficult and the drawcords at the waist don't pull the hem in quite tightly enough but these are small points considering the price. Id say its smarter than most and represents good value

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Waterproof, slim fit, but silly zipper The GOOG: · Will keep you bone dry (water beads on it) · Slim fit, no flapping about in the wind · No breathability issues (only spent 1 hr in medium rain) The BAD: · Zipper for midget fingers. One hand in cold rain? Forget about it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not great :-( Upon seeing the product online I thouight brilliant but upon opening the package I was mightyly surprised. The price I paid I was expecting a higher quality product in terms of material. This feels cheap and not particularly worth the money that I paid

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfekt! Immediately notice the perfect fit and the good arm length. The elastic fabric cuffs on the sleeves and the adjustable elastic on the lower federal seal everything beautiful. And all in RED ;)

So this jacket is less breathable than your other rain jackets. Is it also less water resistant? Can you rate the breathability and water resistance on this jacket, the Rain Jacket and the Race Cape?

Asked by: fgun
Hi, this jacket is slightly less breathable than our other rain jackets. It is still waterproof. The Pro Team Race Cape is our most breathable jacket and is extremely waterproof.

Would this fit over a blazer/suit jacket for a commute?

Asked by: AlexU
Hi, this is not specifically designed for city riding and you may need to size up for this jacket to fit over your blazer. Another option would be our Hooded Rain Jacket.

How well does this block wind? Would it work fine with base layers in the winter?

Asked by: SamJ
Hi, this jacket will block the wind but it was designed for this purpose and it would be better to use a wind jacket in these conditions.

How breathable is the waterproof fabric?

Asked by: PhillN
Hi, the fabric used in this jacket is waterproof but less breathable than our other rain jackets. There are ventilation holes in the fabric to improve heat regulation.

Does the waterproof coating needs to be replenished periodically

Asked by: Ti Yam
Hi, the fabric itself is water resistant but to maintain the same levels of water protection, the DWR coating does need to be replenished periodically.
