Race-ready wind protection

Don’t get caught out on brisk mornings or long descents with this stowable, lightweight wind jacket. Designed to allow you to work hard in the wind, a thin mesh fabric on the back allows heat out, then the jacket packs down to almost nothing for easy storage when not in use. At just 136g (medium size), it is more than 35g lighter than the Classic Wind Jacket. This garment is inspired by a jacket that Team Sky wore during races in 2015, filling the gap between a gilet and a thicker jacket. Made for racers, a Pro Team fit means the jacket won’t flap around. With a mesh collar inner for comfort, and several reflective elements throughout, this jacket offers engineered, elite racewear for a range of riding situations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does exactly what is says on the tin and more..... It is apparently summer in the UK, but the random drizzle makes us think of April once again. This top has been masterful in these conditions. The same size as a lightweight gilet, not noticable when in the pocket, easy to throw on if the temperature changes or you have to get off to fix the puncture caused by a flint (darn you Surrey) - and way better than mixing arm warmers and a gilet. It allows splats of rain to evaporate and if you do end up in a downpoor, its sticks to you but you still can't feel the cold air. I used it at a triathlon, after a chilly swim start onto the bike......perfect once again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Riding Essential I've tried gilets and arm warmers, and I've tried other wind/rain jackets, but nothing has been as versatile as this jacket. It's SO light, it folds up to almost nothing, but when you're wearing it – it does exactly what it's supposed to. When it's been cold it's kept me warm, when it's been warmer, I've not overheated. It regulates your body temp perfectly. Looks really cool on the bike – just don't expect to wear it off the bike as it is cut REALLY short at the front! Tight fit (as you'd expect from the Pro-Team range) but in a great stretchy fabric. I'm large in Rapha Jerseys, and bought the large jacket and it fits nicely over the jersey whilst remaining 'race fit'. Perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect kit. Purchased this the first day it was available in US and then used for a week of riding in the mountains of Colorado. It weighs practically nothing, packs down much smaller than any other jacket, is built tough, looks great, and proved itself just the thing for an extra layer in the morning over arm warmers - and for taking the edge off of descents. You will want this jacket - it's perfect kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Appearances can be deceptive When I took this out of the bag I was very sceptical as to whether or not it would live up to the quality of the rest of my Rapha clothing. One hilly, windy ride later and I realise how wrong I was. Not only does the jacket protect your torso well against wind but it is incredibly effective on those long descents, keeping both body and arms warm and protected against the elements. I am a fan!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! (Almost) I never write reviews, and I own a lot of Rapha product. This is simply the best peice of kit I've ever bought, Rapha or otherwise. It seems deceptively simple to create a stylish, well-cut wind jacket that stows aways neatly without any extra features, but over the years I've never found one that ticked all the boxes, until now. My only comment, and it's probably related to the Pro Team line in general is that the jacket is cut very small and short, so much so I had to upsize to a Small size, whereas I wear XS in the classic, city, and brevet lines. I am 130lbs and 5'5" so I was surprised to see that I had to upsize. All in all, this is the best jacket I own, one that I find wearing every day. It'll be a sad one if I ever have to replace it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great windproof jacket Really lightweight, easily packable windproof that really keeps the chill off on cooler rides. There is no water resistance though to this jacket so when sleeves get wet I find arms also get cold quickly so not a great option if you think you might hit a shower/rain. Some additional reflective features would make this a 5 star product for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic, Rapha has a winner here! This jacket is not only well tailored, it is packable, and provides just the right amount of wind protection on early morning summer rides. The fit is impeccable, I purchased a large even though I often wear a medium Rapha jersey because I wanted to have a little room for arm warmers, and with the hopes it wasn't so restrictive like some of the other Rapha Pro Team items. It is still slim, but is really quite perfect. I especially like the low key Rapha logos, and with they would release this in RCC colors (hint, hint!) This lightweight jacket is a little pricey, but it's worth it, and the price is better than some other Rapha wind jackets. I highly recommend this jacket for those spring or summer mornings when arm warmers are a bit much, and unzipping and packing this into a jersey pocket is easier to get on and off. Just buy it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for what it's designed for. It's not a jacket you will use too often based on the UK climate, but for what it's designed for - a light, wind resistant, additional layer that really does pack down to next to nothing, it's excellent. The price tag is reasonable (for Rapha) and possibly recognises the limited use during a 12 month period. Sizing note - I'm normally a Medium in the Pro Team range and opted for a Large, which was a good call as the Medium would have been too short.

Hi, does it have any pockets?

Asked by: Lion lion
Hi, this jacket does not have any pockets. The back of the jacket is very elastic and you can easily access your jersey pockets.

Hi, I am muscular in built and my arms are about 17" in diameter, Is the material stretchable? I normally wear Size Large for your jerseys. Would I be able to fit snugly into this wind jacket? If not, would you have any other recommendations? Thanks

Asked by: Trackspecial33
Hi, the material has a small amount of stretch. If you usually fit a size large for our other products, then we would recommend you also try a large in the Pro Team Lightweight Wind Jacket. As always we have a 90 day returns policy if the jacket is not the right size.

Is that a white lining material under the black mesh on the back? Or is that a white Pro Team jersey being worn under the wind jacket in the picture?

Asked by: Jacket Search
Hi, the back of the Pro Team Lightweight Wind Jacket is made from a mesh fabric. The fabric shown underneath is the Pro Team Jersey.
