The Classic Winter Jacket is designed to help you enjoy the winter months, rather than enduring them. For rides that begin and end in challenging conditions, it’s made using a wind- and water-resistant, three-layer GORE-TEX fabric from the INFINIUM™ range that balances protection from the elements with excellent breathability and durability.
Designed to be used in coldest of winter temperatures as part of a layering system, the jacket is fitted to allow space for a jersey and base layer beneath, while high-stretch storm cuffs form an airtight seal around gloves. An adjustable drawcord at the hem combines with a raised collar to keep warm air locked in. If the temperature or the pace picks up, chest zips allow for extra ventilation and double as easy access pockets for small essentials. The jacket’s chest zip pockets, armband, shoulders and pockets all feature reflective trims for improved visibility while two easy-access rear pockets provide space for ride fuel to keep you riding through the freeze.
“It's exceptional. It's warm and highly water resistant while being breathable and comfy too. There's not a lot to say against this jacket.”

“And while this year most are simply commuting to their kitchen table and back, it’s actually become more, not less, essential. With cycling increasingly the safest way to get everywhere, you’ll want to ensure you’re comfortable on the way and dry when you get there. Rapha’s latest winter jacket ticks every box.”
