Water-resistant overshirt for city riding

Made with a lighter weight version of the Loopback Trouser fabric, the Softshell Overshirt has four-way stretch for superb freedom of movement. Treated with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish, the shirt provides protection in light showers and a covered front placket with snap button closure helps to keep out the wind when buttoned up on the bike.

A heat-stamped armband with a reflective Rapha logo adds a subtle element of visibility. Two pockets with zip closures feature on the front of the shirt, and a back pocket with a ring puller provide further storage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from When is a shirt not a shirt? When is a shirt not a shirt? - when it’s a Softshell Overshirt. It’s unusual . . . it’s mid-way between a shirt and a jacket. It’s not one thing or the other, rather a sum of the two. I don’t think I’ve had a top like it - actually it’s rather good. Another unusual. . . The placing of the pockets; the left pocket is on the front, you can slip your hand to keep warm, or look cool like James Dean. The other pocket is round the back on the right, entry from the side and is it designed for . . . . cyclists, I suppose. It’s not heavy, apparently it’s water repellent and I can confirm it is ideal for riding around town (also, just as good to wear when you are not with your bike). By the way - it’s not exactly soft, it is made with a stretchy material that makes it fit very well - I really like it and I can recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wardrobe Staple This overshirt is quickly becoming a favorite. It brushes off light showers and slight breezes with ease and looks great on or off the bike. If it had an inner pocket, it would be perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart detail Excellent fit as usual. Can be used as an over shirt or normal shift due to quality of material. Nice detailing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great overshirt! Bought this several weeks ago and am so glad I did. Great for stopping wind or just wearing to work. Dressy and casual all at the same time.

Hi, own have a classic jersey small size which fits just right, but the small size in the core rain jacket it´s to tight for me. Which size would you recommend on this Softshell overshirt?

What type of outdoor temperatures is this jacket suited for? Is this designed for winter use?

Asked by: Ollie P
Hi, as we all regulate temperature differently it is hard to advise on the temperature range for individuals and differing exertion levels will also affect it's properties. The garment is treated with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish, so will provide protection in light rain showers. It is a garment that is designed to be a warm and water-resistant. An over shirt that’s works both on/off the bike.

What is the fit style of this product? I had purchased a Wool Wind Jacket but returned it because it was far too loose fitting. Is the Softshell Overshirt as baggy or is it more fitted?

Asked by: phil07
Hi, this shirt is not as fitted as some of our other City range products. If you are at the smaller end of a size, you may wish to size down one size.
