Lightweight, packable and water-resistant insulation

Long-distance riders often encounter a wide range of conditions, so a lightweight layer that is both warm and packable is essential. The Insulated Brevet Gilet provides exceptional warmth, while highly breathable Polartec Alpha insulation ensures you won’t overheat during harder efforts.

The gilet features reflective detailing for visibility, and a water-shedding DWR (durable water repellent) coating for added protection in rain showers. Thanks to the hydrophobic properties of the Polartec Alpha insulation, the gilet wont saturate in the same way that natural down insulation will, and is quick drying. Mesh side panels stretch to fit over full pockets and a zip placket keeps out the wind, and when not in use, the gilet rolls into an elasticated loop at the neck to stay tightly stored. Please note that the two-way zip included on this product at launch has been replaced by a standard zip.

Karen Whittier, product manager for insulation at Polartec, explains the science behind Polartec Alpha:

Polartec Alpha was engineered as an active insulation to regulate core body temperatures during both dynamic and static activities. This ‘adaptive’ breathability helps eliminate the need for shedding or adding layers while on the move, making it ideal for cycling.

By keeping moisture vapour moving freely through the fabric, it increases overall air exchange and drastically speeds up dry times, providing thermal regulated comfort. Polartec Alpha is also highly compressible, made with a stable core… that prevents ‘fibre migration’ to keep a uniform consistency, even after heavy wear and repeated laundering.

FEATURES

  • Quick drying and hydrophobic Polartec Alpha insulation
  • Self-storing into band at neck
  • DWR (durable water repellent) coating
  • Wind resistant fabric
  • Dropped rear hem for added protection
  • Reflective detailing throughout
  • Stretch side panels to accommodate full jersey pockets

FABRIC

  • 100% Nylon

Body sizing

Arm length: measure from where the seam would start at shoulder to bottom of the wrist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A friend for all seasons I questioned whether I really needed this in the kit drawer, but when my distances started to rise this became my turn to item when I knew the temperature was going to fluctuate. I found it perfect for early spring mornings, or evening rides whilst is rolled up small enough to tuck away in the day. Its ability to keep you warm but not too warm is well documented. +1 from me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Safe and warm I bought this for rural mountain roads in dark and cold winter mornings. It's very light and comfortable and super warm (also the back is insulated). As it is a unisex model, it is a bit loose on my waist but that isn't too big problem for me (the upper part fits well). And of course a real high-vis product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm, light and clever elastic loop Ideal for Sydney's 4-7°C winter mornings that warm to low teens by 10am. Plenty of stretch gives a snug fit ensuring no cold air gaps or flapping. Size Medium works for me, same as the Classic jersey. Decent wind protection on the front while mesh sides give good ventilation. Insulation is light but works well and the elastic loop keeps it tidy when stashed in a jersey pocket. One of Rapha's best pieces of cool/cold weather kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super light insulated Gilet... ...I wanted a Gilet just like the other members of 'The EarlyBird' riders and bought this. Loved the contrasting stripes, super light feel! Perfect body warmth maintained, and thumbs up from the whole group who are all Rapha customers. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gilet I bought this recently & used it in the Alps on long chilly descents - its excellent - lightweight but much warmer than a normal thin gilet

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gilet Had my eye on this one for a while, went for a S, usually a woman's S/M depending on cut. The colours on the Blue gilet are great and not too bulky, all ready for a cooler day!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase At first I was skeptical about buying an insulates gilet but it has proved to be an invaluable piece of kit for my trip to the Alps.

The medium in the pro range is perfect for me, I have small for the city range and borderline small-medium for the classic range. Which size do you recommend for this gilet?

Asked by: Txema
The Medium fit should be a good fit. This Garment has a more relaxed fitting then the Pro Team Range and is more in line wit the Classic Range.

Hi, I'm looking for a gilet to accompany a lightweight jersey when cycling early morning in spring when temps are about 10-15 degrees- would you suggest insulated or standard gilet? 

Asked by: Nick101
As we all regulate temperature differently it is hard to advice on the temperature range for individuals and differing exertion levels will also affect its properties. For cooler temperatures we would certainly recommend the insulated Gilet as it does provide extra protection from the outside elements.

If worn in heavy rain, will the insulation still provide warmth?

Asked by: Bugs
Hi, this gilet is not intended for use as an outer layer in heavy rain. It is water-resistant and Polartec Alpha is one of the quickest drying insulation materials available.

I have a brevet ladies windstopper jacket size med which is a perfect fit . What size would I need in the brevet insulated gilet?

Asked by: Helen 51
Hi, this gilet has a snug fit but this is not a women's specific product and so you may need to size down one size. As always, we do have a free 90 day returns policy if needed.

How does the brevet insulated gilet compare to the woman's rapha gilet in terms of fit in the hip and waist? As far as chest measure a medium insulated gilet is apparently equal to a large woman's. Just want to make sure I get sizing correct.

Asked by: lady_colnago
Hi, the Brevet Insulated Gilet has a straighter fit that does not come in as much at the waist and out at the hips like the Women's Rapha Gilet.
