Water-resistant overshirt for city riding

Made with a lighter weight version of the Loopback Trouser fabric, the Softshell Overshirt has four-way stretch for superb freedom of movement. Treated with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish, the shirt provides protection in light showers and a covered front placket with snap button closure helps to keep out the wind when buttoned up on the bike.

A heat-stamped armband with a reflective Rapha logo adds a subtle element of visibility. Two pockets with zip closures feature on the front of the shirt, and a back pocket with a ring puller provide further storage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect This is simply a perfect garment. I usually struggle with some of Raphas sizing, being a stocky but not wide shape. I went for the medium as I do with most of Raphas stuff and it fits perfectly. The stretch in the material allows for wear over a t shirt or jumper. The length is spot on and when done up the simple, minimalistic look is just what I wanted. I think I might treat myself to the black one too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice I bought the overshirt a month ago and love it. I am more on the heavy site and got the XXL and this is a nice fit (46inch chest; have the xl wool wind jacket, which runs large).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite new piece of clothing So versatile! So stylish. It's a material similar to the loop back pants (also my favorite). It's sort of stretchy material and kind of blocks the wind too. I wear it over a T shirt in 50 degrees.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the weight of the fabric I've been wearing this now for over a month. Im in Vancouver, Canada so a typical winter's day is often along a range of 0 to 10 degrees C - with rain... This shirt is so comfortable and insulating with a long sleeve Rapha merino wool base layer - perfect to commute to work in and attend meetings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favourite shirt/jacket! This is the coolest shirt I own. It looks fantastic. I love the 'hidden' pockets and that I can pile on layers underneath. A big mention of it being waterproof. I've been out in downpours and been bone dry! Add this with the loopback trousers and Insulated hat and I'm more than happy. So happy I bought both colours. I have one small nitpick with the collar being a little big. But overall... sometimes I wish it would rain just so I can watch the rain bead up and roll off the shirt! Um... yep I recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Form and Function I bought this in the past month and have worn it more times than anything in my wardrobe. Makes a great layer underneath a jacket for warmth and equally strong as a solo outer layer on a warmer day. Can vouch for its showerproof qualities too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabric! Function! Amazed by the fabric! Useful, and grand looking Pockets hide perfectly and zips are long enough to make pocket deep to hold things safe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shirt ever Bought this for my husband as an Xmas pressie. He absolutely loves it as it's comfy, doesn't crease and looks very stylish. Not sure if he wore it on a bike yet :-p He gets loads of pressies from me this is only one in a few where I got such an endorsement. So it must be truly amazing.

Hi, own have a classic jersey small size which fits just right, but the small size in the core rain jacket it´s to tight for me. Which size would you recommend on this Softshell overshirt?

Asked by: Davman
Hi, this shirt sizes similarly to a regular shirt and we recommend you order a small.

What type of outdoor temperatures is this jacket suited for? Is this designed for winter use?

Asked by: Ollie P
Hi, as we all regulate temperature differently it is hard to advise on the temperature range for individuals and differing exertion levels will also affect it's properties. The garment is treated with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish, so will provide protection in light rain showers. It is a garment that is designed to be a warm and water-resistant. An over shirt that’s works both on/off the bike.

What is the fit style of this product? I had purchased a Wool Wind Jacket but returned it because it was far too loose fitting. Is the Softshell Overshirt as baggy or is it more fitted?

Asked by: phil07
Hi, this shirt is not as fitted as some of our other City range products. If you are at the smaller end of a size, you may wish to size down one size.
