An insulating and extremely lightweight layer for cooler rides.

Brevet Insulated GiletNOK850.00

Please select an item above

Lightweight, packable and water-resistant insulation

Long-distance riders often encounter a wide range of conditions, so a lightweight layer that is both warm and packable is essential. The Insulated Brevet Gilet provides exceptional warmth, while highly breathable Polartec Alpha insulation ensures you won’t overheat during harder efforts.

The gilet features reflective detailing for visibility, and a water-shedding DWR (durable water repellent) coating for added protection in rain showers. Thanks to the hydrophobic properties of the Polartec Alpha insulation, the gilet wont saturate in the same way that natural down insulation will, and is quick drying. Mesh side panels stretch to fit over full pockets and a zip placket keeps out the wind, and when not in use, the gilet rolls into an elasticated loop at the neck to stay tightly stored. Please note that the two-way zip included on this product at launch has been replaced by a standard zip.

Karen Whittier, product manager for insulation at Polartec, explains the science behind Polartec Alpha:

Polartec Alpha was engineered as an active insulation to regulate core body temperatures during both dynamic and static activities. This ‘adaptive’ breathability helps eliminate the need for shedding or adding layers while on the move, making it ideal for cycling.

By keeping moisture vapour moving freely through the fabric, it increases overall air exchange and drastically speeds up dry times, providing thermal regulated comfort. Polartec Alpha is also highly compressible, made with a stable core… that prevents ‘fibre migration’ to keep a uniform consistency, even after heavy wear and repeated laundering.

  • DWR (durable water repellent) coating

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and Flexible Perfect for rides where weather conditions may change drastically. I use it for chilly morning commutes and pack it for the ride home. The stretchy side vents make it easy to put over just about any kit combination. I am 5' 8" , 170 lb and have the large. It is so stretchy, I may have been able to go down to a medium for an even more snug fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Style and Warmth Ridden on a few chilly mornings now. Initially felt draughty but soon discovered it needs a few miles for heat to rise from your body, get trapped in the insulation and keep you warm. now love the top. 44" chest and XL fits perfectly. Looks fab too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favourite piece of Rapha clothing I love this gilet, excellent windproof properties and gives you that warmth feeling but not too much. Visibility is great with the reflective strips on the front and back, I wear a medium and fits tight without being a Pro fit so is flattering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It’s the best, around! Been taking this on about 10 rides ranging from morning and night and it performs like a champ! I rarely need to even unzip. Great design!

I wear a large classic long sleeve jersey but mainly for length (thin 6ft 5). Which size of the gilet would fit me best. 

Asked by: Charles Carl
We suggest the same size that you normally wear as the Brevet shares the same fit as our Classic Jerseys

If I wear a small classic jersey (fits like a race fit) as I have a 37in chest, what size would you recommend for the gilet?

Asked by: dan70
You should fit a medium in this Gilet. We do have a 90 day returns policy should the garment not meet with your specifications.

What is the sizing for women?

Asked by: Esther1989
If you were to purchase this item, an appropriate size would be based on the upper body measurement. If you are a Classic Medium, we would suggest a Medium of this item so it fits across the shoulders
