Technical outer layer for cold-weather cycling

The Pro Team Jacket is designed for high-tempo interval training in cold weather. When you are riding on the limit in low temperatures, breathability and protection from the elements is essential. Using an innovative windproof Polartec® softshell with a perforated membrane and water-repellent treatment on the leading panels, the rear panels are made using Super-Roubaix for insulation and wicking where it matters. The jacket has a higher-cut waist at the front and lower hem at the back for an ‘aero’ fit, while the high collar offers greater protection in cold and wet conditions.

PLEASE NOTE: Sizing for this edition has been altered for this season to align with the rest of the PRO TEAM products. If you have a previous edition that fits well, you should now order the size up.

NB: The Pro Team Jacket is not fully waterproof. We recommend packing a Rapha Rain Jacket with you as a waterproof outer layer for training rides.

Reviews:

‟The adaptability of the Pro-Team jacket is what has made this one of Rapha’s out-and-out success stories. It is one of those rare items of cycle clothing that is suited to such a wide variety of climates - from autumn right through the winter to spring - that you’ll struggle to want to put anything else on.”
The Times, 30 January 2015

‟For years, I held onto an old team jacket by Giordana for cold rides because of its feel and function: fleecy and warm but not suffocating, with a svelte, race cut. Now I go for the Rapha Pro Team jacket, for the same reasons – plus the fact that it looks good. Granted, as a grown man who wears tight pants in public, I realize I am not fit to judge aesthetics. But my wife, who generally rolls her eyes at cycling apparel, actually likes this one. So there's that.”
– Bike Radar - Best Bike Gear of 2013

"I’ve really enjoyed using this jacket. It doesn’t have the warmth of some other winter jackets, but for its stated purpose – fast training sessions where you’re going to be working hard – you can’t argue with that. It’s biggest draw is the fact that its so much more lightweight and slim-cut than most other jackets of this kind."
Review on road.cc by Mat Brett ****

"Where the fleece and wind-blocker membrane double up, the jacket remains extremely thin and light, but still does a good job of keeping you warm. All this makes for a very versatile piece of clothing. With a heavy base layer it will be enough (in the dry) down to around six or seven degrees, with a thin, sleeveless string base layer – and the zip partially undone – you can use it up to 14-15 degrees. With a rain cape over the top it will be enough in even colder weather."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does exactly what it says on the tin umm adverts! I wanted a form fitting winter jacket that didnt require loads of layers underneath to stay warm and then overheat in later on. The windproofing on the front works a treat and I'm really pleased that for once, a product lives up to its hype. For fast club runs and winter training it's perfect. Wore it today for a 74 mile ride out and it performed faultlessly. Lads on the ride agreed it looks great too. Expensive but you get what you pay for. Size wise, I'm 5'10, 11 1/2 stone and although fit, I'm not a racing snake at almost 45 years. Size large is perfect. Feels a bit odd off the bike but when you get in the saddle it fits like a glove, sleeve length is spot on and the grippy lower back covers my backside as far as it should.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect and versatile jacket! This jacket has to be one of my favourite pieces from Rapha’s cold weather range. The cut is consistent with the pro team collection: very slim and form fitting. I take the same size as in all my other Rapha tops. When trying it on, it might feel a bit awkward: the arms seem long, the shoulders tight, and the front hem is short. But on the bike, the fit is perfect. Performance-wise, it is extremely versatile: the wind blocking front keeps frigid blasts away from your core, and yet the back vents perspiration and excess heat. For me it has worked well in a range of temperatures, for fast paced training: in deep winter, I’ll use it with one of the heavier base layers, and in more moderate 40+ conditions, the pro team base layers work great. Finishing is superb, as always, and the rear pockets can easily hold a waterproof, plus a spare tub and other gear. With fewer hours of sunlight, the option of more visible colours and the presence of reflective accents is a huge bonus. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile, great fitting cool weather jacket Surprisingly thin for the warmth it provides. I wear a long sleeve base layer and am comfortable down to 30 deg F. It basically replaces a long sleeve jersey and wind jacket. The fit is very tight, and because of the material there is very little margin for error. I wear a medium Rapha Pro Team jersey and this jacket in medium fits perfectly, but it would probably be too tight if I gain even a few pounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rapha's best Had the 2014 version, and in my opinion one of the best items offered by Rapha, so decided to get a second one in another color. Wear it with the merino mesh short or long sleeve base layer. It fits like a pro team jersey, excellent breathability, keeps you warm but never too hot. For the 2015 version however, you most definitely have to go up a size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Superb Jacket, very versatile Bought 2 weeks ago this Jacket has been worn twice in very differing conditions. First ride- cold, windy, misty and wet, high tempo, hilly ride - the jacket kept me warm and beat the wind. Offering some water repellency on the chest and arms. I was dry inside. When climbing it was a bit hot - could benefit from pit zips. Second ride - frosty, headwind, tempo ride - again lovely and snug, had plenty of room in the back pockets in a size medium.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for riding in Swedish autumn Bought it two weeks ago, went for a 100k ride in winter-ish conditions which means 5-8 degrees Celsius with only a short sleeve baselayer beneath and I did never get to warm or to cold, perfect fit for cycling. Best cycling jacket i ever had

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great racing fit. Went up one size and it's snug but does not flap in the wind. This jacket is light but warm. In high 20 degree F ride I was cool but just about right for a hard run. Arms are cooler yet your core trunk stays warm with an added layer of wind protection. If you need warmer add a thicker under garment. Love the color.

hi usually buy the xxl in brevet jerseys which fit fine with a little room, will the xxl fit me I have quite broad shoulders

Asked by: stevelis
Hi, please refer to the size guide as far as possible. Due to the more race cut and tight fitting nature of the garment, the XXL may not be a suitable fit. Should you purchase the item, we have a 90 days return period if it is unsuitable.

What temperature range is this jacket best for? (Fahrenheit)

Asked by: donovan
Hi, as we all regulate temperature differently and this is also affected greatly by exertion levels it is hard to advise on the temperature range. It is created for high-tempo riding in colder conditions, the jacket is ideal for winter training, using an innovative windproof Polartec® softshell with a perforated membrane and water-repellent treatment on the leading panels, the rear panels are made using Super-Roubaix for insulation and wicking where it matters.

If I wear a medium jersey size, Do I get a Large Jacket. (Because of the layering right?) Also, I weigh 80kg. My height is 180 cm. Also, I live in Ontario Canada. Is it useful in the winter?

Asked by: Alik
The Pro Team jacket is a aggressive race cut and if you intend to wear it over a jersey then we would suggest sizing up. The jacket offers insulation, breathability and windproofing in a lightweight and streamlined design. Created for high-tempo riding in colder conditions, the jacket is ideal for winter training.

How does this jacket hold up in the rain?  I live in Seattle so it's a common occurrence during the colder months.

Asked by: Road Spray
The Pro Team jacket is not water proof. It has a water-repellent treatment on the leading panels, and will handle a light shower. Prolonged exposure to heavy rain will result in water ingress. The rear panels are made using Super-Roubaix for insulation and wicking where it matters.
