Comfort of a jersey, protection of a jacket

Protecting against wind chill is the first step for any winter cyclist. Made using a windproof fabric on the chest, shoulders and arm panels, the Classic Winter Windblock Jersey is ideal for those cooler weekend rides and chilly training sessions. All the internal seams are pressed and bonded to provide further protection against the wind, while a breathable merino blend helps to keep your temperature regulated when working hard. A drawcord with adjusters on each side makes the hem of the jersey adjustable to lock in heat, and reflective tabs on the wrists and pockets provide visibility in darker conditions. Classic styling meets winter versatility.

Reviews

“If what you want for winter cycling is a thermal long sleeve jersey with the cosy insulation and softness of merino wool, backed up by fully windproof front-facing panels for providing a barrier against windchill, then look no further than the Rapha Winter Windblock Jersey. It sure is expensive but it's a superbly made luxurious winter jersey.”

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost Too Good Brought this to compliment my winter wardrobe and Windblock couldn't be a more accurate description. Have done several rides with the temperature close to zero degrees with a nasty chilly wind and this jersey has kept me incredibly warm. The first time I paired it with a merino base layer and was too hot!! Even on the coldest of days I'm only using a summer base layer under it and still very warm and cosy when riding. Got caught out in rain and it kept me dry, moisture doesn't escape easily so sweat does build up especially when climbing but this is a small price to pay to avoid the wind chill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great winter jersey / jackey I had been on the look-out for a jacket / jersey to wear on rides during the colder months. I didn't want an expensive, bulky jacket, but did want something that offered protection against wind and rain. This jersey / jacket hybrid has been just the thing - lightweight, well-fitted, and everything I have come to expect from a Rapha product. I've worn it on short and long rides, in the city and out in the countryside, in dry weather and in light rain. I've done this so far during November and December, when the temperatures have been in the low single figures. It has kept me warm and largely dry. The only slight quibble is that, as well as keeping moisture out, it also traps moisture in - meaning you end up drenched in sweat by the time you finish. I guess that is the trade-off, but worth being aware - worn with a base layer and jersey underneath, you only really notice the moisture when you stop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Essential for Cold Midwest Rides I purchased this jersey a few weeks ago and I’ve been extremely pleased. I have rode with it on in 28-35°F temperatures at 20+ mph for 60 to 90 minutes wearing a merino base layer and high-vis gilet, and the jersey performed very well blocking wind and retaining warmth. The fit was spot-on for Classic range sizing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant piece of kit I've been wearing this in a range of temperatures, from 7-8C to about freezing, with just a base layer. It has become my go-to piece for colder rides. It stays comfortable and ventilates excess heat well while climbing, and when the road points down again it stays warm thanks to the wind block front. There are no cold spots or air leaks - it simply works. My only gripe is that the zippered pocket in the rear is just wide enough for me to get three fingers in, so placing keys or fishing around for them while wearing the jersey isn't really possible, especially with any sort of gloves on, so I don't use it. However, the zippered left front side pocket is well places and sized, and keeps keys secure, easy to reach, and yet out of the way of all pedaling motion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding for cold weather rides I’ve ridden in this a few times now. It keeps the wind off, keeps you warm without being restrictive or making me sweat too much.

What fit regime is this intended to be in? Felt more 'Pro' than 'Core' or 'Brevet'

Asked by: Glass
This fit is part of our Classic Range which will not be as tight as a Pro Team garment but will have a fitted cut. It will have a tight fit as this is designed to keep out the wind and other colder elements.

Do I get this or the brevet windblock jersey? I get hot on rides so thought this may limit me to only a couple of months whereas the brevet may be better in the spring/autumn and with a base layer may be as effective in winter??

Asked by: JamieGobell
Hi Jamie, this jacket will be a great piece of kit for high tempo winter rides. The Brevet Windblock is similar but different and thinner material at the back will require different layering but it will be a great piece of kit for Spring and Autumn riding.

why would one buy this instead of the pro team soft shell? 

Asked by: Sxw29
This would depend on the nature and style of riding that was being done. The Pro Team range is used for riding in high intensity with a heightened body temperature. This product would be slightly more thicker but as we all regulate temperature differently it is hard to advice on the temperature range for individuals and differing exertion levels will also affect its properties.

Is it substantially the same as the classic winter jersey and are there front vents?

Asked by: ZebL
This garment is designed to block wind and chill as its primary function. It can be used on cooler weekend rides and chilly training sessions. There are no front vents but whilst the internal seams are pressed and bonded to provide further protection against the wind, while a breathable merino blend helps to keep your temperature regulated when working hard.

Is this the next version of the old winter jersey? If yes does this mean that it has the same thickness, warmth with improved windblocking?

Asked by: matenadasdii
This is the new seasons Winter Jersey and features the same dimensions and thickness. with windproof features along the front.

How this is this compared to the Brevet Windblock Jersey?

Asked by: Patch
The Brevet collection is designed for those on long distance cycling and touring and therefore has features suitable for that style of riding including new quick-drying, lightweight merino fabric for comfort in the heat and reflective and hi-vis Brevet stripes on front and back to aid visibility in low-light. The Classic is a similarly relaxed fit garment but its features are designed more for one day riding and is ideal for those cooler weekend rides and chilly training sessions. All the internal seams are pressed and bonded to provide further protection against the wind, while a breathable merino blend helps to keep your temperature regulated when working hard.
