Lightweight cycling gilet

The Classic Vest 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.

  • Packs small enough to easily fit in a jersey pocket

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This will keep me cycling through winter I feel like this is the best investment I've made all year. Light weight warmth. Keeps the core warm blocking wind at the front but keeps let's the steam out of the mesh at the back when you're cooking it. The little money pocket at the front is super handy too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice quality and fits in a jersey pocket Looks good. The side zip and high collar means the collar flaps about a bit if not done up to the top. Lovely quality though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really nice fit and looks slick! Unassuming but very slick looking gilet. Actually a very good fit not as long at the bottom on the rear as my brevett gilet and I quite like that. Would be fantastic if they could have the classic pink piping on the hem or the arm area but I like it. Or have the Rapha logo in pink or hi vis colours.

Hi,i currently own a small brevet gilet that fits with enough room to wear a long sleeved jersey and nylon shell underneath would I fit a small in the classic ii gilet?

Asked by: Lithiumrx
The Small Classic Gillet II should be a good fit too. This also has a relaxed fit.

Would this be warmer than the brevet insulated gilet?

Asked by: Conza
The Classic Gilet is designed for miler weather and the Insulated Gilet would be more appropriate for cooler temperatures due to its in built insulation. However, 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.

I am a L in the original Classic Gilet. Will I be an L in the version 2?

Asked by: DannyP
Hi, the Classic Gilet II is of a more streamline construction, if your Large Classic Gilet in Large fits with ample room to go over a jersey with stuffed pockets then a Large will be suitable. Should you need to exchange, we have a 90 days return period.

I wear an S for my classic jerseys and M for ProTeams. This gilet would be ok for S? 

Asked by: EddyEddEd
The Classic Gilet II is made of a stretchy nylon fabric but also has a more streamlined construction so I suggest trying a Medium unless you like it to fit quite streamline.
