An insulating, breathable jacket for cold, crisp, winter days

The Souplesse Jacket solves the cycling conundrum of how to stay warm and snug without overheating and getting uncomfortable. With a dual-fabric construction, the softshell front provides a windproof and water-resistant barrier between you and the elements, while the contrast, stretch material on the back is breathable to allow heat to escape as you work hard on the road.

With low-light conditions in mind, the rear of the jacket features a reflective stripe, alongside reflective piping and a reflective Rapha logo, keeping you visible on the road. An offset zip allows for easy layering and the jacket has two large rear pockets separated by a pump sleeve. Other features include a zipped valuables pocket and a pocket on the left sleeve.


  • DWR (durable water repellent) softshell front and sleeves repel water to keep you dry
  • Rear stretch contrast panel is form-fitting and breathable, allowing heat and moisture to escape
  • Lycra collar and cuff ends help to keep out the rain
  • Reflective details on rear and cuffs for riding in low light
  • Zipped valuables pockets on sleeve and back to keep essentials safe
  • Back pockets reinforced with mesh to stop sagging

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Cycling Jacket Ever The souplesse jacket is by far my favorite cycling jacket I have ever owned. I live in San Francisco, and it's perfect for the damp, foggy fall and winter weather here. It keeps me in the happy zone of warm and cozy, without getting sweaty or overheated when I pick up the tempo or head up a climb. The soft, back panel makes it super breathable and visible on the road. The cut of the jacket is great too...highly recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great design but slightly odd shape I bought this jacket a few weeks ago and it has been good to wear in changeable autumn weather. My one gripe is that it is a slightly odd shape - I am relatively short (163cm) with a shorter body than legs proportionately - so it is no suprise that the arms are long on me. However the jacket itself is relatively short and rides up at the front - if I was any taller it would be far too short. However it just works on me and the different materials to manage drizzle / cold / wind appear to work well. And it looks good!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor fit I tried in 2. Sizes. Wore 2 and wish I had returned that too. Wind proofing is poor, with 2 other layers in autumn. Short fit, ok for me but I am only 1.63m.

Is the back panel also water resistant?

Asked by: Hs1990
Hi, the back panel is designed to be highly breathable but has a DWR treatment to make sure it is still water resistant.

How does the soupless jacket compare to the men's jackets? It's the only jacket option for women, so I'm wondering if it will keep a rider warm in 0°-10°C weather or is it more of a warm jersey. Is the construction anything like a soft shell?

Asked by: tldy
Hi, the Souplesse Jacket is similar to the men's Pro Team Training Jacket and they are both very versatile products. It is designed for temperatures from 0-11/12 degrees celsius and even colder if paired with a Winter Base Layer and gilet. The jacket is substantial but still feels like a jersey on the skin.
