Pocket-sized waterproof gilet

The Pro Team Rain Gilet is an essential piece of kit for days when the weather looks changeable. Packing down into a jersey pocket, it is less bulky than a jacket and will keep your core protected should rain set in. A pared-back take on the popular Pro Team Race Cape, the Rain Gilet uses the same breathable and waterproof fabric by Polartec – which is new and improved for 2016. A dropped tail keeps road spray off the back of your jersey, and the fabric has a slight stretch to allow the gilet to keep its shape over fully-loaded pockets. It also shares the same Pro Team race fit as the Race Cape. As with most of our Pro Team products, this gilet was designed in response to a direct request from our teams - in this case Team Sky - for a versatile, protective garment with minimal bulk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Waterproofing is splendid This is a must have garment in any cyclist wardrobe. The pro team gilet is great when you have those sudden downpours and fits neatly in your jersey pocket. It's also great for autumn conditions if you like to layer up. Combined with a long sleeved jersey and a baselayer it's great for those chilly starts and unpredictable weather. I was caught in an autumn shower the other weekend and it was particularly heavy. I was amazed and immensely satisfied with how the water simply beaded off the material. Very satisfied with this product and it's a must need for the cycling wardrobe.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Indispensable I suggested this product on a Raphael Survey a few years back. First batches were in dull colours but as soon as I saw the yellow version it was a must buy. Very very useful product. Core warm and dry in heavy rain and showers. Keep moving and not too hot , first proper use today in a very heavy rain shower and 5 degrees centigrade . Kept my core warm and dry, I did not get too hot.The deluge stopped or got back to drizzle, gilet returned to back pocket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fitting gilet The fit is excellent, trim torso and a good length to provide cover from road spray, The fabric feels breathable and robust. The gilet is packable enough to be stored in a jersey pocket and I feel is packable enough whilst still being robust. The zip seems high quality and the tab at the front would allow it to be closed with velcro if pulling it on mid ride or race when sitting-up to fasten up the zipper, or stopping, wasn't practical. Colour-wise, the chartreuse colour is bright yet without the day-glow associated with the usual high visibility colours. The only slight downside is that the colour does show grime/dirt which I feel is to be expected, it's a price I'm happy to pay for increased visibility when riding through the Autumn and Winter months. Overall, highly recommended.

How breathable is the gillet? For instance if worn over a pro team softshell jacket?
