Jersey pocket-sized insurance against changeable weather

The Pro Team Lightweight Rain Gilet is pocket-sized insurance against changeable weather. It has been made possible by a proprietary three-layer fabric, developed by Rapha over the past two years, which weighs less than 100 grams per square metre yet retains the high stretch needed for a race-ready fit and waterproof qualities necessary to protect riders from the elements.

The gilet packs down small, but doesn't compromise on design details. The outside of the rear pocket is lined with a clear, waterproof film, protecting against road spray. The front placket features the same velcro tabs as the Pro Team Race Cape, so it can be worn 'open' for maximum ventilation, and the two-way zipper means either half of the gilet can be opened with one hand while riding. The front and side panels hold reflective graphics for added visibility, and the seams are internally taped to protect against rain.

I tried on the L size of the Pro Team Gilet at the Taipei store, but it was too small. They don't carry XL. Are the sizes universal? I.e., is a L in Asia the same as a L in Europe? And do you ship to Taiwan?

Asked by: porkido
The sizes of our garments are universal. We ship to Taiwan only via our Hong Kong warehouse.

Are the sleeves also wrinkly similar to the Pro Team Rain Gilet?

Asked by: baboons_bum
Hi, unsure as to what you mean by wrinkly, the jacket and gilets are both made out of the exact same material.

Can you please compare this lightweight rain gillet with last seasons Pro Team Rain Gilet. Differences I am interested in: waterproofing in torrential rain, breathability and differences in weight between e.g. medium size for comparison purposes.
