Breathable and insulating jacket for warmth on cold rides

The Souplesse Jacket solves a cycling conundrum: how do you stop yourself overheating if you’re covered up for the cold weather but are working hard? Constructed from two different fabrics, this outer layer has a softshell front providing wind and water resistance against the elements, while the more breathable stretch material on the back stops you overheating or feeling clammy.

New for this year, and with low-light riding conditions in mind, the jacket’s back panel features printed reflective stripes 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, lined valuables pocket and a pocket on the left sleeve.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great jacket! runs small This is a great jacket with enough subtle style to wear in the city while commuting. The back stripes are truly reflective and make for great visibility. I generally wear an XS in Rapha products but got this one in a Small (to be able to layer in the deep winter) and am glad I did, it fits quite small (all over, chest and arms especially) compared to the classic soft shell and the classic windbreaker. 4 stars because it's rather pricey but I imagine it'll stand the test of time so likely worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fall/early winter jacket The jacket/jersey combination here works and it has been my go-to item as the weather turns. I have ridden from 0 to 10C in this and been comfortable. Though the back jersey portion is warm, it breathes well. I also appreciate the brightly colored back panel and the extra visibility it offers. The lining is soft against the skin. It does fit tight, so it's difficult to get more than a long sleeved base layer under without feeling too bulky.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not possible to use in vold conditions in Norway This jacket is very nice in the spring or autumn. But in the winter is to thin. So i should go for a classic softshell or sametinget for my girlifriend. It better if the Rapha site can come with more info about the conditions for the jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm, breathable, non bulky - perfect! Searching for a warm winter jacket that didn't leave me feel like Michelin Man or that I was wearing clingfilm when I got warm was proving testing. Then I spotted this jacket. It has, quite simply, transformed my winter riding. The front is wind proof, shower proof and warm.The rear is very visible (pink), soft and breathable. I genuinely didn't think the combination would work, but it does! This morning I was out in 3 degrees with this jacket, a merino base layer and winter bibs. Not hot, not cold - just right! Almost don't want winter to end!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great windproof lightweight Autumn/ Winter jacket The Souplesse jacket is an excellent choice for insulating warmth as a snug fitting, lightweight cycling jacket. Only needs a base layer underneath, it is well designed to keep the wind out and warmth in on cold windy Winter rides. I love the reflective back panel, apparently very visible in low light conditions which brings more confidence on longer ride days if out for longer than intended!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great cool-weather jacket Comfortable in a range of temps and weather conditions and fit is very sleek. I've worn this comfortably from 30s with a base layer to 50s on windy/shady days. XS is a bit constricting when standing up, and there's no room for a layer underneath, but feels fine during exercise (32B/C bust, XS in other Rapha tops). I would have opted for S, but they were sold out. The reflective stripes on the back de-laminated after a few rides (possibly because of stretch?), though customer service was great about processing a replacement.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stylish- tailored jacket Had this jacket for a month now I'm 5ft 7 and bought a medium (I'm usually a small in previous rapha gear). The fit is great particularly in a size a little bigger for those extra layers. Fantastic windproof jacket - water resistant to a degree. Very warm but most importantly comfortable and stylish- like vogue on a bike! The jacket is expensive but the material and quality is what you pay for - I'm not sure however if the jacket is as relflective as it says.... but a timeless piece nonetheless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect for rainy rides I wore this on a few cold and wet 50 mile rides and was really happy with how I stayed warm without overheating or feeling cold. I'm a fan of the larger areas of reflective trim that aren't too obnoxiously obvious as "reflective" I can see this easily becoming my go-to jersey when the rain moves in for the fall. It did feel sized a tad smaller than other jerseys, perhaps because the material in the arms and the front don't have very much stretch, so if you're inbetween sizes, go up.
