Water-resistant overshirt for city riding

Made with a lighter weight version of the Loopback Trouser fabric, the Softshell Overshirt has four-way stretch for superb freedom of movement. Treated with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish, the shirt provides protection in light showers and a covered front placket with snap button closure helps to keep out the wind when buttoned up on the bike.

A heat-stamped armband with a reflective Rapha logo adds a subtle element of visibility. Two pockets with zip closures feature on the front of the shirt, and a back pocket with a ring puller provide further storage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shirt or Jacket? Doesn’t matter which you decide- it’s a really versatile top. Excellent water stoping and the poppers make it really easily to adjust ventilation when on the bike about town. Looks smart in black

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect garment to travel in... I bought this shirt and I am in love with it, the quality of the garment is truly amazing, and its great for travelling in. In fact I only recently discovered the side pockets. Its very warm in the cold, yet in the heat you do not feel too sweaty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from out and out smart Soon as I donned it, the softshell overshirt became a keeper. Truly impressed. Sizing up proved key, though. I'm 6-ft/196; the XL was right on. Sharp, clean lines. The gunmetal grey tones, nothing less than superb. Understated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No need for a Jacket Amazing piece for layering. About as clean as a dress shirt, but just as clean to unbutton as the weather gets a little warmer. I also love the subtle arm band and hidden pockets!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect smart casual item Looks good as a shirt or open with a nice shirt underneath. Subtle armband makes it a sleek, smart must have. Very water resistant if caught in a shower is a bonus, water beads on the surface and runs off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just right. This is a shirt that works like a jacket. I didn’t have anything quite like it. Nice stretchy material that keeps out the wind and light rain. The fit is relaxed like most of the Rapha City collection. I’m 6’ 185 lbs. the large fits perfectly with a long sleeve base layer. I also got an XL for more room to wear as a light jacket. The sleeves are plenty long but I like that. On the bike I’ll need the length. Two side pockets and one behind all zip. Sturdy snaps. This is a great piece.

Hi, own have a classic jersey small size which fits just right, but the small size in the core rain jacket it´s to tight for me. Which size would you recommend on this Softshell overshirt?

Asked by: Davman
Hi, this shirt sizes similarly to a regular shirt and we recommend you order a small.

What type of outdoor temperatures is this jacket suited for? Is this designed for winter use?

Asked by: Ollie P
Hi, as we all regulate temperature differently it is hard to advise on the temperature range for individuals and differing exertion levels will also affect it's properties. The garment is treated with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish, so will provide protection in light rain showers. It is a garment that is designed to be a warm and water-resistant. An over shirt that’s works both on/off the bike.

What is the fit style of this product? I had purchased a Wool Wind Jacket but returned it because it was far too loose fitting. Is the Softshell Overshirt as baggy or is it more fitted?

Asked by: phil07
Hi, this shirt is not as fitted as some of our other City range products. If you are at the smaller end of a size, you may wish to size down one size.
