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 My favourite shirt/jacket! This is the coolest shirt I own. It looks fantastic. I love the 'hidden' pockets and that I can pile on layers underneath. A big mention of it being waterproof. I've been out in downpours and been bone dry! Add this with the loopback trousers and Insulated hat and I'm more than happy. So happy I bought both colours. I have one small nitpick with the collar being a little big. But overall... sometimes I wish it would rain just so I can watch the rain bead up and roll off the shirt! Um... yep I recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Form and Function I bought this in the past month and have worn it more times than anything in my wardrobe. Makes a great layer underneath a jacket for warmth and equally strong as a solo outer layer on a warmer day. Can vouch for its showerproof qualities too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabric! Function! Amazed by the fabric! Useful, and grand looking Pockets hide perfectly and zips are long enough to make pocket deep to hold things safe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shirt ever Bought this for my husband as an Xmas pressie. He absolutely loves it as it's comfy, doesn't crease and looks very stylish. Not sure if he wore it on a bike yet :-p He gets loads of pressies from me this is only one in a few where I got such an endorsement. So it must be truly amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great combo of bike to boardroom I bought this a couple weeks ago and have been enjoying commuting to work in it. Functions on bike and looks sharp in office.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent City shirt, I've worn it a bunch already This is my first purchase from the city line. I own a lot of Pro Team gear. As a daily bike commuter I was tired of changing at the office on days when I was not going to ride hard. This shirt is perfect. It can be worn over a sweater, or a T shirt depending on the weather. I rode in light rain and it performed great, rain slip off and the shirt kept me dry. the pockets are perfect for storing things and the style is clean. I love the cuff buttons, they have a small bit of pink, very "RAPHA". I highly recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Casual and Comfortable Although the weather has not yet been suitable to cycle with this jacket, I do feel that if fulfills the requirement to be a casual and smart enough jacket in milder weather to show up for work, appointments,shopping trips, evening wear. The material is very comfortable with a good stretch,same cut as the wool-wind jacket ( which would have a wider comfort range) but more easy-care because of price difference.

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?

Asked by: Davman
Hi, this shirt sizes similarly to a regular shirt and we recommend you order a small.

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.
