Packable wind gilet for club members

The RCC Pro Team Lightweight Gilet is a versatile, thin outer layer that can be worn all year round. Exclusively available to Rapha Cycling Club members in the club’s colours (hi-vis pink for training, grey for racing), this lightweight gilet can pack down to be stored in a jersey pocket until a cold descent or to ward off the chill of an early start. Upgraded for 2017, this year’s iteration is made of a new fabric, which offers greater stretch for an improved fit. The double-ended VISLON® zip is a new addition: you can unzip from the bottom upwards for easy access to your jersey pockets. As with all Pro Team products, everything about this cycling gilet is designed with performance and comfort in mind: a mesh fabric on the inner collar and perforated holes on the neck help you avoid overheating and the directly applied silicon on the front hem helps keep the gilet in place during hard rides. Whether worn during warm-ups, at morning races, or as a convenient backup if the weather suddenly changes, the RCC Pro Team Lightweight Gilet has your back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Freshly hot Very effective, cut the wind and keep you warm while letting it breathe just what it takes to not be soaked from hot ! I'm 1,73m & 74 kgs and the M size, like all my rapha jerseys, and it's perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential for cold mornings !!! I am very happy with my pink coloured gilet. The reflective strips and colour stand out on the road. The fabric is soft and comfortable and the front zipper is smooth to use. An essential item for cold early mornings. It's a quality product and its highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovin' the double zip! I took this with me on a weekend to Boulder. It kept me warm on the descents and breathed more than I could on the way up. The double zip is a great feature allowing better access to your jersey pockets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from does not only look good The best part about this vest, in my opinion, is that it has stretchy mesh on the back part of the gilet that prevents you from sweating. I have only worn it 5 times now, as you would expect from raphe, the zippers (that go both ways) are working fine. This gilet definitely is tight as it should be, so you do not have it flapping in the wind. There's only one objection, as with all other products from rapha: the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight, folds small, useful gilet Stylish and well made gilet perfect for almost any ride as it packs down so small to fit into jersey pocket easily. Keeps the morning chill but breathes well through through the light weight back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good wind blocker with breathable backing I bought this mainly for my RCC identification at races. Does well blockng wind and keeping your core at a comfortable temp. Breathable mesh layer is great and stretch ensures nice snug, but comfortable fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultra premium feel Lovely fit and feel. Extremely wind proof on the front and breathable at the rear. Enough stretch that it fits well with loaded rear pockets. As with everything Rapha Pro Team size up from your day to day wear.

I just join the RCC member and order my Aero jersey with the package in size XL but it was very tight so exchange to XXL how about the vest and pro jacket what size I should order? Im chest 105 cm

Asked by: Les Lee
The Pro Team Range is a close fitting range and you should be able to fit into a Large size, but if you fin the range too restrictive and tight you could go up a size to XL. We do have a 90 day returns policy of the garment does not meet with your specifications.

Should you pick the same size if pairing with Pro Team jersey? Wonder if you need to size-up if you fill jersey pockets with spare tubes etc. 

Asked by: petertt
HI, we recommend you order the same size if you are pairing with a Pro Team Jersey. The bottom of the RCC Pro Team Lightweight Gilet does have an a high degree of stretch to accommodate filled jersey pockets.

It seems like plastic bit below the zipper at the bottom of the gilet rubs and is eating away at the surface of my shorts (resulting in what looks like 'pilling' of the pro team bib 2 fabric). Should I be concerned or is this normal? Otherwise I love it
