Lightweight weatherproof for the rigours of the city
When getting wet during your city ride isn’t an option, the Hooded Rain Jacket will keep the elements out. Using a waterproof, lightweight and high-stretch fabric with fully taped internal seams, this cycling jacket is extremely water and wind resistant.
The rollout hood is engineered to fit under a bike helmet and will follow with the movement of a rider’s head for optimum field of vision. The cinch-cords on the hood have self-locking eyelets, allowing for adjustment with one hand.
The cuffs have reversible tabs with hi-vis stripes that use a new snap closure, while a hi-vis, drop-down tail can be stored in the rear panel when not in use. There are laser-cut vent-holes under the arms, and the main water-resistant Vislon® zip has a Velcro-fastened placket, imitating that of the Pro Team Race Cape.
The cut is more relaxed than Rapha’s race- and training-specific jackets, and looks just as good off the bike as it does when in the saddle.

Does this jacket have any pockets?
I generally fall between sizes (Medium to Large). I'm a 39inch chest, with relatively broad shoulders so I'm at the top of the Medium range and the bottom of the Large range - can you suggest which might be the best fit?
Based on the photos the material looks thin. What layers do you recommend that fit under this jacket when cold weather hits the city? I also aim to use it throughout 3 chilly seasons for multiple 30 mins city rides.
How is the degree of water and wind resistance when compared with Goretex fabric?
Does this jacket require periodic treatment with a Durable Water Repellency (DWR) product?
Which jacket is more waterproof...this city jacket or the pro team race cape? Thanks!
Hi. A couple questions; - How does the waterproof performance and breathability of the fabric compare to the Classic Winter Jacket? - Does it have any pockets?
Is this jacket made of thicker/heavier materials than the packable waterproof jacket ? I am considering it as a fall/winter/spring commuter jacket. For winter use, would a light down jacket fit under? Im a jersey size M - 184cm 70kg
Thank you for your request. We’ll contact you when your Hooded Rain Jacket is available.
