Lightweight Cycling Gilet

The Rapha Gilet is designed for changeable conditions during milder weather. It is windproof, water resistant and perfect for cool mornings, seasonal showers and brisk descents. Made from an extremely breathable matt fabric, the central back panel uses elasticated mesh for added breathability. At just 115g (medium size) the gilet packs down to fit comfortably into a jersey pocket.

The latest version uses contrast trim down the rear central panel to give a stylish accent.The gilet has a full-length, offset zip with a soft fleece chin guard to prevent chafing and a lockdown puller to eliminate rattles. The gilet has a long-cut back, and a dropped tail protects from road spray.

Friction locks on the waist cord allow for easy adjustment on the move and the gilet has two elasticated cargo pockets and an additional front zipped pocket. To improve visibility, the gilet has reflective piping around the arm holes and a reflective Rapha logo at the back.

Reviews:

"The Gilet holds up well under the sort of changeable conditions that it was designed for. It provides just enough protection from a quick downpour, drying out quickly afterwards, and cuts through the wind keeping your core warm. I found that I’d instinctively grab the Gilet when heading out in anything less than perfect conditions – a testament to its performance.

When viewing this online the color comes across as a bright red, but the order confirmation shows orange.  Is the color closer to stop-light red or caution orange?

Asked by: Jared
Hi, this gilet is closer to stop-light red.

I fit perfectly snug in an XS Classic Jersey. Safe to say XS in this piece will fit as well? In other words: Is it more of a "classic" or "pro" fit?

Asked by: Timmiko
Hi, this gilet has more of a Classic fit and we recommend you choose the same size as you would in a Classic Jersey.

Hi. would a person of 6 feet be a medium in the classic gilet? I am not around the person to take measurements and it's a gift. Also, what is your return policy?

Asked by: Michele10
Hi, it is very hard to advise you without any measurements. It would be best to estimate based on their size. If they are six foot and average build, a medium may be correct. We do offer free 90 day returns so they can exchange the size if needed.

Hi, what is the weight of the classic gilet? How small does it pack?

Asked by: PhilH
Hi, the Classic Gilet weighs less than 150g and it packs up small enough to comfortably fit into a jersey pocket. An even lighter option would be the Brevet Gilet. Hope that helps.
