The Tweed Softshell Jacket was first introduced in 2008 as a stylish, water-resistant garment for both on and off the bike. Packed with riding specific features and cut in a relaxed fit for pairing with jeans, the jacket became an instant classic. Now, 10 years on, we’ve reimagined this vintage Rapha product to celebrate our heritage. Using a water-resistant three-layer fabric with a Prince of Wales check design, the Tweed Softshell Jacket is made in the same factory as the original, but with some modern updates. Reflective piping offers increased visibility while cycling, and a rear angular pocket, complete with headphone port, provides easy access to your valuables from the saddle. The front zipper is offset to guard against the wind, and lycra cuffs keep the worst of the weather out of the sleeves. Stitched binding on the seams paired with an updated C-change membrane provide added protection from downpours, while the soft touch collar lining and synthetic suede zip garage keep you comfortable when buttoned up.

Is the colour the same as in line photoes or it is slight light?
How does the sizing of this compare to the logo & piano soft-shell?
I didn't notice any care instructions. Is this item machine washable?
