Premium protection for high-intensity rides in the wet

This jacket has been specifically created for riders who need lightweight coverage in wet and windy conditions. Cut from an extremely water-resistant fabric on the main panels, and using breathable panels in key positions, the jacket also has bonded seams for optimum protection in the wet and cold. The fabric, milled using a trio of hydrophobic, robust and breathable yarns, is thin and lightweight, so the jacket packs easily into and out of a jersey pocket. Additionally, large zips and velcro fasteners on the cuffs make the jacket adaptable and easy-to-use on the move, or with gloved hands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great waterproof jacket I have used this a few times, I bought the next size up so that I could wear a few layers. Fits great and have worn it with only one base layer and it was fitted so didn't flap. Excellent reflective strip on the rear and it's long enough to cover my rear from the rain. Would recommend .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features! This is a very well designed jacket. Great for overcast or light showery days. Good snug fit and the soft inner fabric makes it super comfy. Warm but doesn't get too hot like rain jackets can. I like the little zip pocket on the sleeve - it fits my house key perfectly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great rain jacket! I bought this rain jacket for my 2016 Ride the Rockies 6 day cycling trip. Perfect for cold mornings and windy mountain tops, and packs in back jersey pocket when sun comes out. Light weight yet substantial. Also used in early AM pre ride for warmth from morning chill, and evening too. Great looking well made jacket !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit, ultra stylish Love this jacket. Fits so well. Great light weight jacket. Good for rain and Spring riding. Looks even better in real life. The pink stripes are ace. No pockets on the outside which I would have liked but other features are good (arm zips and two way main zip).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a brilliant piece of kit Finally a wonderfully fitting and made ladies piece of kit. Looks smart, fits really well and keeps me dry.. Also keeps me warm in cooler conditions and doesn't make you boil in warmer conditions. Really impressive rain jacket

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous rain jacket! Really like my new women specific rain jacket. Material is really waterproof but light and adapts to temperature, adds a little warmth when the rain is a bit chilly. The up/down zip feature which means it can be closed at the chest and open around the waist is really useful for either getting to pockets or allowing in some air whilst keeping the rain off. I also really like the styling especially around the wrists with small zips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chapeau Rapha I bought this rain jacket a few weeks ago, living in Glasgow means have had plenty of opportunity to test it out in some torrential rain already (where I stayed dry and warm). The fit, quality, and styling are excellent. The only minor development area for the future would be a slightly longer back, but that's just me being picky. Chapeau Rapha this is the best rain jacket I have worn.

How does the fit compare to the souplesse jacket? Size chart says I should be an XS but I found the souplesse jacket a bit small in XS and a bit large in S! 

Asked by: cg297
Hi, this jacket has a very similar fit to the Souplesse Jacket. Based on your previous experience, we recommend you try a small. As always we do have a free 90 day returns policy.

is the women's winter jacket more waterproof, bulkier and hotter than the rain shell?

Asked by: lost me keys
Hi, the Souplesse Rain Shell is more waterproof, but the Women's Winter Classic Jacket is slightly bulkier, warmer and an all round winter jacket.

Hola, I am wondering about sizing. I am 95cm chest, 76 cm waist, 100 cm hips. I would prefer to buy the medium and have a closer fit, but am concerned it will be too tight across my chest & shoulders. Please advise

Asked by: Josephine Southwell
Hi, please refer to the size guide for a more accurate measurement. As the Souplesse Rain Shell will have a tighter fit, with the information provided we would suggest you try a large. We do have a 90 days return period should you wish to change size.

Does this jacket use the same fabric as the men's pro team race cape? The men's jacket, same design and price, is described as waterproof and this jacket is only listed as water resistant. I'm hoping it's waterproof.

Asked by: picky
Hi, the fabric is not the same as the men's Pro Team race cape. It is still an extremely water resistant, lightweight and breathable jacket. Constructed using a 3 ply Proprietary Japanese fabric with bonded seams and zipped and velcroed cuffs.

Is there a waterproof rating? Also, is it good to keep out the cold (between 0-5 degrees Celsius)?

Asked by: Cyclingwinter
Hi, we do not have a water proof rating. The jacket is cut from an extremely water-resistant fabric on the main panels, and using breathable panels in key positions, the jacket also has bonded seams for optimum protection in the wet and cold. The jacket is a technical shell and as we all regulate temperature differently it is hard to advise on the range as exertion levels also contribute to this factor.

What is the fit like? Is it similar to the rain jacket?

Asked by: Lauren
Hi, the cut is for racing and riding in wet weather and as such more fitted than the Women's rain jacket.
