Packable wind vest for club members

The RCC Pro Team Lightweight Vest is a versatile, thin outer layer that can be worn all year round. Exclusively available to Rapha Cycling Club members in the club’s colours (hi-vis pink for training, grey for racing), this lightweight vest can pack down to be stored in a jersey pocket until a cold descent or to ward off the chill of an early start. Upgraded for 2017, this year’s iteration is made of a new fabric, which offers greater stretch for an improved fit. The double-ended VISLON® zip is a new addition: you can unzip from the bottom upwards for easy access to your jersey pockets. As with all Pro Team products, everything about this cycling vest is designed with performance and comfort in mind: a mesh fabric on the inner collar and perforated holes on the neck help you avoid overheating and the directly applied silicon on the front hem helps keep the vest in place during hard rides. Whether worn during warm-ups, at morning races, or as a convenient backup if the weather suddenly changes, the RCC Pro Team Lightweight Vest has your back.

Body sizing

Chest: measure underneath the armpits with the tape measure straight around.
Back Length: measure from the bottom of where your collar sits/base of the neck to the bottom of your spine.
Arm length: measure from where the seam would start at shoulder to bottom of the wrist.

Should you pick the same size if pairing with Pro Team jersey? Wonder if you need to size-up if you fill jersey pockets with spare tubes etc. 

Asked by: petertt
HI, we recommend you order the same size if you are pairing with a Pro Team Jersey. The bottom of the RCC Pro Team Lightweight Gilet does have an a high degree of stretch to accommodate filled jersey pockets.
