Premium protection for high-intensity rides in the wet

This jacket has been specifically created for riders who need lightweight coverage in wet and windy conditions. Cut from an extremely water-resistant fabric on the main panels, and using breathable panels in key positions, the jacket also has bonded seams for optimum protection in the wet and cold.

Made using a trio of hydrophobic, robust and breathable yarns, the jacket’s fabric is thin and lightweight. Stretch panels on the inside of the arms and on the sides of the jacket allow for greater movement in riding positions, while large zips and velcro fasteners on the cuffs make the jacket easy-to-use on the move or with gloved hands.

FEATURES

  • Wind and water-resistant for wet and windy riding
  • Lightweight, breathable fabric to prevent overheating during harder efforts
  • Bonded seams give extra protection from rain and wind
  • Zipped and velcro cuffs create a seal against the elements
  • Textured zip pullers make the jacket easy to put on or off, even with gloves
  • Two reflective rear stripes offer visibility in low light

FABRIC

  • 100% nylon

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Form and function. I bought this jacket shortly before I went on a 15 day cycle tour in The Netherlands - not my first time over there, but perhaps my first time at experiencing all of the weathers in one go, so I definitely got to test out this rain shell in several downpours and it comes out glowing. I love Rapha gear, I also love cycling gear for women that does not find itself covered in flowers or hideous colour options, so this is perfect for me. I cycle commute everyday and so I appreciate being visible on the road but not having to permanatly walk around in a fluorescent number. The two pink strips do just nicely!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely jacket This is a lovely jacket. It folds up small enough to fit in my back jersey pocket but it is a tight fit. I have only worn it in winter, and suspect that like most jackets it will be a toss between staying dry vs sweating in summer. I didn't find the wrists a problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome rain-proof jacket I love this jacket - had a chance to test its waterproofness on a few rides recently and it passed with flying colours! Kept me completely dry in a typical British downpour. It gets a little hot after a while riding in it but that's the case with pretty much every jacket I've had (in this one unzipping it a little bit and unzipping the sleeves helps). It's super stylish, love the colours (I have a black one) and the pink stripes on the back are nice and visible. It packs easily into a jersey pocket and weighs nothing - I was so pleased when I put it on and it felt like I had nothing on me! It dries quickly as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Copes with Scottish rain! I bought this a month ago in order to have something lightweight and waterproof for road cycling in Scotland's spring, summer and autumn. I'm a UK size 10, 5ft 6, and it fits perfectly. It's baggy on the bum when you're off the bike, but it fits perfectly once you're on the saddle and can accommodate all the tubes/sweeties in your jersey. It's very waterproof but take note, it has no pockets.

Hi, I wear a Medium Classic Winter Jacket (which I LOVE) but a Large Souplesse Jersey.  I assume that I would be better going with the Large in the Souplesse Rain Shell as the fit is tighter?

Asked by: Leethal
We recommend choosing the Large Souplesse Jacket if you are most comfortable in that size Souplesse Jersey

How does the fit compare to the souplesse jacket? Size chart says I should be an XS but I found the souplesse jacket a bit small in XS and a bit large in S! 

Asked by: cg297
Hi, this jacket has a very similar fit to the Souplesse Jacket. Based on your previous experience, we recommend you try a small. As always we do have a free 90 day returns policy.

is the women's winter jacket more waterproof, bulkier and hotter than the rain shell?

Asked by: lost me keys
Hi, the Souplesse Rain Shell is more waterproof, but the Women's Winter Classic Jacket is slightly bulkier, warmer and an all round winter jacket.

Hola, I am wondering about sizing. I am 95cm chest, 76 cm waist, 100 cm hips. I would prefer to buy the medium and have a closer fit, but am concerned it will be too tight across my chest & shoulders. Please advise

Asked by: Josephine Southwell
Hi, please refer to the size guide for a more accurate measurement. As the Souplesse Rain Shell will have a tighter fit, with the information provided we would suggest you try a large. We do have a 90 days return period should you wish to change size.

Does this jacket use the same fabric as the men's pro team race cape? The men's jacket, same design and price, is described as waterproof and this jacket is only listed as water resistant. I'm hoping it's waterproof.

Asked by: picky
Hi, the fabric is not the same as the men's Pro Team race cape. It is still an extremely water resistant, lightweight and breathable jacket. Constructed using a 3 ply Proprietary Japanese fabric with bonded seams and zipped and velcroed cuffs.

Is there a waterproof rating? Also, is it good to keep out the cold (between 0-5 degrees Celsius)?

Asked by: Cyclingwinter
Hi, we do not have a water proof rating. The jacket is cut from an extremely water-resistant fabric on the main panels, and using breathable panels in key positions, the jacket also has bonded seams for optimum protection in the wet and cold. The jacket is a technical shell and as we all regulate temperature differently it is hard to advise on the range as exertion levels also contribute to this factor.

What is the fit like? Is it similar to the rain jacket?

Asked by: Lauren
Hi, the cut is for racing and riding in wet weather and as such more fitted than the Women's rain jacket.
