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.


  • 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

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice fabric and designed for riding position I'm 5'1 and 115 pounds and the XS was snug, especially with a full winter weight jersey under. The fabric was nice, including stretchy bits in key areas. The sleeves and overall body length were very long and the zippered cuffs made it a bit hard to get in and out of, but once it, it felt like a fortress yet rolled up small enough to fit in a pocket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great item I initially bought this in the small, whilst the fit was good around the bottom, I found the fit around the top to be too tight. It is supposed to be race fit but actually restricted your movement somewhat as the material is far stiffer than lycra - and I prefer a loser fitting jacket for wet conditions. So I instead ordered the large, which provided a much loser and more comfortable fit, easily able to fit a short or longer sleeve jersey under without feeling restricted. The style and cut of the jacket is excellent though, and stylish enough to wear when not riding.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My wife is really pleased with this garment Bought it for her as a Christmas present. She is delighted. I had to exchange it for the next size up before she received it. Now fits her really well.Only negative comment is the elastic makes the hem ride up whilst cycling. Would be better with a self adjusting system. Hence only 4* on the rating. Might see if I can adjust it.

I am a size S in the Women's Core Rain Jacket. Should I order the same size S in this Souplesse Rain Shell, or a size M?

Asked by: Paula Morales
We would recommend the Small Jacket as the sizing is consistent across the range

What is the difference between this Souplesse rain shell and the Core rain jacket? Are they both as waterproof? and would they both fold up into a back pocket of a jersey?

Asked by: NicoleE
The Souplesse Jacket is a racing fit as opposed to the Core that is more relaxed. Both of these Jackets fit into the rear pocket when folded

Can this jacket be folded and put in rear pocket? Comparing this with core, which one is less bulky and lighter?

Asked by: win_my
This Jacket can be folded into the rear pocket and is more streamlined and lightweight than the Core Jacket

Hi! Can you tell me the difference between the Souplesse rain shell vs. Classic wind jacket? In both fit and water resistance? Does the Souplesse fit tighter and longer in the back?

Asked by: AlexvW
Hi, the Souplesse Rain Shell is better in water resistance and it is a it longer at the back. Whilst the Classic Wind Jackets can act as a barrier against sudden showers but it is a more lightweight jacket best suitable for cool morning starts when the weather is still chilly and a wind barrier is needed.

hi, can you tell me the differnet between SOUPLESSE RAIN SHELL VS. WOMEN'S CLASSIC RAIN JACKET thamls

Asked by: Janetw
Hi, these jackets are both designed for sustained rain but the Souplesse Rain Shell is made using Polartec Neoshell which is slightly more breathable and waterproof than the fabric used for the Women's Classic Rain Jacket.
