Lightweight, packable, weather-resistant insulation

Long-distance riders can encounter a full range of weather conditions, so a lightweight layer that is both warm and packable is essential. The Brevet Insulated Jacket provides exceptional warmth, while highly breathable Polartec® Alpha® insulation ensures you won’t overheat during harder efforts. Extensively tested across a range of conditions: from the Transcontinental race across Europe, to the cold summits of Australia’s snowy mountains.

This versatile jacket is made for days when the weather is hard to predict. The fast-drying and hydrophobic properties of Polartec® Alpha® mean the jacket won’t hold water like natural down insulation and with a DWR (durable water repellent) coating you can watch the rain roll off.

Soft, brushed jersey side panels add warmth and allow the jacket to stretch over full pockets, while reflective detailing increases visibility in low light. When not in use the jacket rolls up neatly, secured by an elasticated loop at the neck.

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 to 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.


  • Quick-drying and hydrophobic Polartec® Alpha® insulation for warmth in all conditions
  • Self-storing (folds into band at neck) for easy packing
  • DWR (durable water repellent) coating ensures that you stay dry in wet weather
  • Wind-resistant fabric gives protection from the elements
  • Dropped rear hem for added protection from road spray
  • Reflective detailing throughout for riding in low light

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Rapha product! Just a piece of art, really nice jacket, packs very small with a perfect fit (for me at least 175cm and 147lbs in MED). Great for morning rides that start cold or light rain and then just take it into a rear jersey packet.

How should I wash the insulated jacket? Could I put it inside a bag into the wash machine for cleaning it?

Asked by: Celso
Hi, we do advise to wash most of our clothes turned inside out and in mesh wash bags, specially if there are any items with Velcro in the same wash which really should be avoided. Temperatures are as per advice on web page for each respective garment.
