A pioneering race-ready gilet that fits close and packs down small, but still offers supreme temperature regulation thanks to the extraordinary Polartec Alpha® insulation.

Race-ready insulation for cold conditions

The Souplesse Insulated Gilet makes use of the revolutionary Polartec Alpha® insulation to create the perfect outer layer for hard rides on changeable days, pre-race warm-ups, or even for café stops. The Alpha® insulation delivers class-leading warmth without the volume of down, and is highly breathable, ensuring you don’t overheat during harder efforts. Equally fast-drying and hydrophobic, the gilet won’t hold moisture like natural down, allowing you to work a sweat up without wetting out. A DWR-coated, windproof front keeps your chest warm, while the stretch fabric on the back ensures a great fit, as well as letting body heat out. The gilet even has three pockets on the back for storing valuables, and the double-ended Vislon zip provides easy access to your jersey pockets or to help you regulate body temperature. A game-changer for those who like their kit fast but warm.

Reviews:

“The best part of this jacket is its ability to regulate core body temperature through a wide range of temperatures. It kept me perfectly warm at a consistent temperature, from the start to the end of my ride.”
Laura Scott, cyclist.co.uk – ★★★★★ 4.5/5
“…True to Rapha's detail-honed heritage, all the little things are on point, too, from the reflective hit at the bottom of the middle pocket and the hidden, zippered storage—big enough for an iPhone or car keys—on the side. I anticipate wearing this vest more than any other item of bike clothing I own.”
Axie Navas, Outside

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for cool nights I bought this a month ago but found that although I usually take a small, it was a bit too tight for my liking so sent it back in exchange for the medium. Fits perfectly. I like the zip which can be opened from both the top and the bottom and the insulation makes it perfect for wearing to the cafe/pub after a ride in the evening or for early morning rides when it's still a bit fresh.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great fit Have been after a gilet for a while now and was not disappointed to receive this one. So soft to the touch, very warm and fits perfectly. Love it and washes well

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I bought this gilet for rides on colder days, as I usually really feel the wind chill on my chest. Brilliant fit, kept the wind out and me warm, very light and easy to store away should it get too hot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to my cycling wardrobe! I have a handful of gilets but the insulated version is perfect for winter weather that keeps changing but keeps me warm!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A little smaller than other Souplesse pieces I typically order a medium, but this gilet feels a tad smaller than all other piece I have, such as jerseys and the training jacket). Perhaps it's the elasticity of the fabrics used. The styling is nice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight Gilet I think this will end up being a foggy summer day vest. The back is a bit thinner than I anticipated, so I haven't worn it yet as it has been too cold here. The gilet is packable, so I imagine it will be good on foggy coastal rides when there are extended downhills. It is definitely fitted, so size up if you are borderline or want to wear heavier jersey under it. The close fit is another reason I'm thinking it may end up being a more summer fog gilet.

I just bought the Training Jacket one size larger than my other Rapha jerseys. Should I do the same for this gilet or go with my regular size?

Asked by: kat orinda
We would normally recommend going with your regular size, but if you have found that sizing up in certain ranges is more suitable then you should choose the larger size to help layer
