A beautiful merino wool layer for busy days on and off the bike

Functionally, merino wool is the most beautifully soft and moisture friendly natural fibre there is. It works to move perspiration, but also keeps you warm and fresh. Pared with a Rapha base layer, the Breton Sweater is a perfect mid– or outer–layer for commutes and active days where you need exceptional comfort, breathability and insulation. The sweater has a fully fashioned construction for a great shape and fit.

Stylistically, the Breton stripes, worn by early pioneers of road cycling such as the magically named Hippolyte Aucouturier, was originally popularised by artist Paul Gauguin (adopting the work clothes of Breton fishermen) and then in turn Pablo Picasso, and other style icons like Brigitte Bardot. So there’s plenty of romanticism as well as functionality in this wonderful garment.

At the end of each sleeve, a double layer ‘signalcuff’ features both hi-vis and reflective yarns, which can be revealed to offer added visibility when riding in low light. Simply turn back the cuff to reveal the hi-vis bands.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warm and comfy sweater! I ordered this sweater as soon as I saw it. The wool is lovely and warm and the sweater classic stripe with an edge. I ordered it in the size that I usually wear but the sweater was too large. I exchanged it for a smaller size and it is perfect! Love this sweater and Rapha customer service is the best!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bought it for my wife, she is quite happy with it This was a gift for my year 'round commuting wife and we were surprised that the XS was too large, so we exchanged it for a size XXS which fit much better. One that that came as a surprise to us with this product (and other Rapha products we looked at in the Rapha store) is the "Made in China" label. We weren't expecting that and it makes Rapha seem less unique than we originally thought.
