Lightweight cycling gilet

The Classic Gilet II is designed for changeable conditions during milder weather. Completely overhauled it features a new, lighter weight stretch nylon fabric and a more streamlined construction, allowing for greater freedom of movement.

Bonded seams and hems provide further weight saving, and also help to create a clean aesthetic. A low-profile bonded chest pocket with a bonded zip keeps small valuables secure without adding weight or bulk, and stretch mesh panels on the sides and centre back aid ventilation when working hard. It is windproof, water resistant and perfect for cool mornings and brisk descents. The gilet has a full-length, offset zip with a soft fleece chin guard to prevent chafing and a lockdown puller to eliminate rattles. Reflective details on the back and sides offer an element of visibility, and when not in use, the gilet packs down small enough to easily fit into a jersey pocket. The gilet has a long-cut back, and a dropped tail protects from road spray.

"The Rapha Classic Gilet II represents a well-thought-out and considered design, with lots of nice little touches. There’s a nice range of colours available too. The price is justified by the quality, versatility and repair service."

Can you describe the differences (other than visual)  between this and the brevet gilet? I'm not really sure how to decide between the two. Thanks.

The Brevet Gilet is designed to be durable and for longer rides in the saddle and the Lightweight Classic Gilet is featured to be both lightweight and for use in changing weather conditions. The Classic Gilet II features bonded seams and hems provide further weight saving, and also help to create a clean aesthetic. A low-profile bonded chest pocket with a bonded zip keeps small valuables secure without adding weight or bulk, and stretch mesh panels on the sides and centre back aid ventilation when working hard. It is windproof, water resistant and perfect for cool mornings and brisk descents. The Brevet Vest is crafted for those longer rides when you don’t want to carry much with you, but need to cover yourself for changeable weather. It wears well over a short or long sleeve jersey. Incorporating windproof fabrics, lightweight mesh, and high-visibility detailing, the Brevet Vest is a lightweight, packable and windproof outer layer that’s perfectly adapted to riding in low-light conditions.
