Core Rain Jacket$150.00

Please select an item above

The new standard in lightweight outer layers

The Core Rain Jacket is the ideal outer layer for rides with a chance of rain and wind. Extremely lightweight, it folds down small to comfortably fit in your back pocket, ready to be whipped out when it starts raining or the wind picks up. Colour matched throughout, the jacket has a clean, refined finish with collar tipping and a subtly stitched-in Rapha armband.

The jacket has fully taped seams and an AquaGuard® zip for waterproofing. Six ventilation holes under the armpits allow heat to escape if you’re riding hard while the on-bike fit is aided by an adjustable draw cord at the hem and elasticated inner cuffs, which ensure a perfect fit on your wrists. Reflective elements have also been applied to the sleeves and rear for improved visibility on the roads.

  • Extremely lightweight (124g – small)
  • Packable – easily fits in a rear jersey pocket
  • On-bike fit: longer arms, dropped tail and short front for on-bike fit
  • Inner cuffs with lightweight stretch elastane fabric
  • Off-centre zip to prevent draughts penetrating layers
  • YKK AquaGuard® water-resistant zip with zip guard and garage for comfort
  • Four reflective stripes – two on sleeves, two on sides
  • Six laser-cut underarm holes to allow heat to escape
  • Shaped rear hem provides further water protection from tyre spray

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple but effective. The core jacket like the rest of the core range offers good simple well thought out value for money. It has kept be warm and dry in showers, heavy fog and is a good wind breaker for the cold mornings in Canberra.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit Very nice fit, bought Large and I'm 5'9" 12st 6lbs. would be good if available in a light or bright blue shade as I like jackets to be very visible but don't like fluorescent green/yellow so bought RED. Not tested in rain yet; will update accordingly

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent fit and performance I brought this a few weeks ago and used it during a ride in torrential rain in warm weather. The jacket performance was excellent. I reminded dry without overheating. Thoroughly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super lightweight This is a great emergency cape to keep in the back pocket for rain showers. Fits well, rain just rolls off and doesn't feel clammy under the skin. Rapha does it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply excellent I have used this jacket all winter with mereno base layer, an excellent windbreak.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid & Packable Easily stowed it away in a jersey pocket for a recent ride with a high chance of rain. Good decision. Held up and kept me dry (while also breathing) in a pretty hot and heavy Houston downpour. I'm 6'-1" and 170 l.b. and a medium is great through the arms and front though just a tad short in the back with the extra bulk from a mini-pump and tube. Flat out excellent jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value Very lightweight and functions great as an emergency shell. It fits in a jersey pocket easily and looks/fits great. Most rain jackets have a bunch of superfluous graphics, terrible colors, etc. This is just a great staple piece that looks great too. It's clearly not the newest Gore or NeoShell high end material, but because of that, it's a great value. If you want a great jacket that you can stuff in a jersey that has great protection, this is awesome.

Are the arms lined with the same mesh as the body of the jacket?

Asked by: Leaky1974
The Core Rain Jacket does not have a liner, it is a packable waterproof softshell; the main body is made out of 100% Nylon 2.5 Layer and the sleeves are made out of 100% Nylon 3 Layer.

how much less breathable will this be than the pack jacket? I have a pack jacket, which is great, but thinking about getting something a bit more fully waterproof.

Asked by: geordan
Hi, this jacket offers significantly more water protection that a Pack Jacket. It is still quite breathable but noticeably less so than a Pack Jacket. This really comes down to the difference in intended function for both jackets.
Answered by: Rapha_CD

So this jacket is less breathable than your other rain jackets. Is it also less water resistant? Can you rate the breathability and water resistance on this jacket, the Rain Jacket and the Race Cape?

Asked by: fgun
Hi, this jacket is slightly less breathable than our other rain jackets. It is still waterproof. The Pro Team Race Cape is our most breathable jacket and is extremely waterproof.

Would this fit over a blazer/suit jacket for a commute?

Asked by: AlexU
Hi, this is not specifically designed for city riding and you may need to size up for this jacket to fit over your blazer. Another option would be our Hooded Rain Jacket.
