Pocket-sized protection for changeable conditions
The Souplesse Lightweight Rain Gilet is easy to carry insurance against changeable weather. It packs down thanks to a proprietary fabric developed by Rapha over the past two years. Weighing less than 100 grams per square meter, three plies protect riders from the elements, and high-stretch gives a comfortable, race-ready fit.
While the gilet packs small, it doesn't compromise on design. The outside of the rear pocket has a clear waterproof film to protect against road spray. The front placket has velcro tabs to secure the gilet, stopping it from flapping when you unzip all the way. A two-way zip lets you open and close one-handed on the bike, so you can get to your jersey or let out excess heat with ease. Reflective graphics and trim add visibility, and taped seams stop water getting in.
