Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essentially...essential. A simply great product. Comfortable and totally practical both on the bike and off of it. I simply forget I'm wearing it, for it doesn't demand attention, it's just there, doing it's thing. Warm but not overbearingly so, it's thin wool construction belies the garment's actual strength. 6+ months on the commute and no holes or wearing patches as yet. The zip is great, love the ring pull, but I wonder if the side pockets are slightly too fragile, a zipped closure would improve security for carrying small items like travelcard wallets etc. PLEASE MAKE THIS PRODUCT IN BOTH OLIVE GREEN AND BLACK COLOURWAYS!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect sweater Love this piece! Great to find a sweater I can wear to work that has a modern look and fits so well. Very nicely made, as pretty much everything Rapha is. I wear a Pro Team Large jersey. I ordered a Large in this assuming it would be a 3rd layer, and I'm very happy with that choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice Great piece that goes well with both regular t-shirt and a collared shirt. The fabric feels very good and seems to be of high quality. I'm 186cm/75kg and went with large. Not a skin tight fit but not any excess material either. Drapes nicely without any pulling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit, classic style I Travel a lot both in the US and Internationaly, this is the only sweater I pack. Warm but not bulky, you can wear it with a shirt and tie or under a sport coat. Quality and finish is first rate. I would highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the every day. For most of the year - apart from the extremes of high summer or deep winter - the items in my wardrobe which become the go-to are the lighter weight, layering pieces. Whether dressing for a ride or for the day-to-day, I always think about base, mid and outer layer. Quick and easy to take on or off, this is a great versatile piece that can act as warm midlayer or light outer layer, depending on your climate, riding speed and occasion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for commuting I now wear this most mornings for commuting instead of a soft-shell road cycling jacket. It fits close but without being tight. The sleeves, with cuffs rolled down, are plenty long enough for my long arms. It keeps me warm while riding but I don't overheat. And it's nice enough to keep wearing when I arrive. Yet another great Rapha product that I'm very happy with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Merino Zip Through... Fit overall is perfect, like the idea of the flip up they can be flipped down for extra length if needed. The back length is spot on..only issue is that at the center front bottom the hem tends to flip up to to curvature of the hem when zipped.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, but… I love Rapha jackets and sweaters but I found this one a bit on the small side. It's the first item I've purchased that didn't fit perfectly right out of the package. Sleeves and and body length are a bit shorter than usual for and XL. Too short to really wear on the bike comfortably for my taste. I still love it though. I'll try and XXL next time perhaps. Hopefully won't be too big in the body.

Judging from the pictures only the charcoal coloured version has the hi-vis signalcuffs. Do the other colours not have the hi-vis feature?

Asked by: Piotrek
Hi, the charcoal is the only colour which has the hi-vis features.

I wonder if you would correct the 100% merino wool description of the zip-thru.? In fact the top is only 90% merino. The answer to a written question is also incorrect. There are no zippers on the side pockets. I wonder if you will correct this?

Asked by: babaji
Hi, the Merino Zip Through is made of 100% Merino Wool. Nylon is used in the cuffs, & Elastane are used a covering yarn to help maintain the garment shape & stretch recovery - this is what makes the composition of 90% Wool 7% Nylon and 3% Elastane in the garment.
