Lightweight Cycling Gilet
The Rapha Gilet is designed for changeable conditions during milder weather. It is windproof, water resistant and perfect for cool mornings, seasonal showers and brisk descents. Made from an extremely breathable matt fabric, the central back panel uses elasticated mesh for added breathability. At just 115g (medium size) the gilet packs down to fit comfortably into a jersey pocket.
The latest version uses contrast trim down the rear central panel to give a stylish accent.The gilet has a full-length, offset zip with a soft fleece chin guard to prevent chafing and a lockdown puller to eliminate rattles. The gilet has a long-cut back, and a dropped tail protects from road spray.
Friction locks on the waist cord allow for easy adjustment on the move and the gilet has two elasticated cargo pockets and an additional front zipped pocket. To improve visibility, the gilet has reflective piping around the arm holes and a reflective Rapha logo at the back.
The Gilet holds up well under the sort of changeable conditions that it was designed for. It provides just enough protection from a quick downpour, drying out quickly afterwards, and cuts through the wind keeping your core warm. I found that I'd instinctively grab the Gilet when heading out in anything less than perfect conditions - a testament to its performance.
