The ultimate cycling jacket

Test ride any of Rapha’s Classic products to destruction and if you are not 100% satisfied within 30-days you can return them for a full refund.

Rapha’s Classic Softshell Jacket is designed for tough winter cycling. A synthetic membrane means the jacket’s softshell fabric is windproof, water-resistant and highly breathable.

The Women’s Classic Softshell is tailored specifically for female riders and has side panels to give the jacket a structured shape. The sleeves are designed to increase range of movement. A rubberized pad on the left shoulder keeps bag straps stable when riding and seams have been positioned to prevent them from chafing. Both shoulders are edged with reflective grey piping, as are the collar and sleeves.

The full-length zip has a reverse coil for a cleaner finish, a fleece-lined chin guard and a lockdown puller to eliminate rattles. A bite grip on the collar enables easy zip adjustment on the move and zipped vents under both arms help ventilation.

Three large cargo pockets make the jacket ideal for training rides and the centre pocket has a pump sleeve stitched inside. The right-hand pocket has a buttonhole for an iPod cable and an additional valuables pocket has easy-to-use zip puller.

When conditions turn nasty, the jacket’s fold-out storm tail has a saddle grip to keep it in place and a reflective Rapha logo for visibility. Rapha’s trademark left armband has a black embroidered logo and the inside of the jacket has contrast pink details. These include cable routing loops, a draw cord with friction locks and a hanging loop.


It is actually designed for women, not the men’s version haphazardly modified to suit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits like a women's jacket should This jacket fits so well and is perfectly warm. I've been wearing it during Pittsburgh winter when it's been getting below 0 with very strong winds. With a wool base layer and a thin wool hoodie underneath, I'm comfortable. I like the reinforced shoulder, but I wear a very heavy bookbag when I'm riding and wish that both shoulders had this feature. This is a functional jacket that actually looks good as well; something I love about all the Rapha products I own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect fit bought this for my wife after having one of my own. we live in chicago and can ride with this and long sleeve base layer down to about 20ºf. with wind, just a heavier base layer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice fabric and styling I bought this for cold weather riding, 20-40 F. I ordered a medium because I like base layers, but it is a little big, I would definitely stick to my normal Rahpa size, which is a small. I have worn it in 30 degrees with a base layer and a jersey, and it is plenty warm, blocks the wind. Because it is too big, the front doesn't lay flat, but otherwise a great jacket for cold weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So glad I bought this I'm a 6ft woman and I struggle to get decent women's cycling gear that fits - this not only fits great but is wonderfully practical and stylish as well. Loads of little details, the extending rain flap is great (very handy for rainy Manchester) - love this

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well thought out commuting essential I have used the jacket for 3 weeks solid and I just don't know what I would do without it now. Its super windproof, you can reach the pockets easily and it stays in place really well. I am using the tail in the evenings purely because it is reflective logo is good for visibility. The subtle branding means It also looks smart off the bike too.

Does this jacket have any insulation?

Asked by: Sata
Hi. Rapha’s Classic Softshell Jacket is designed for tough winter cycling. A synthetic membrane means the jacket’s softshell fabric is windproof, water-resistant and highly breathable. While it is intended to keep the rider warm and dry it is, as the name suggests, a shell with no formal insulation.
