Lightweight cycling gilet

The Classic Gilet II is designed for changeable conditions during milder weather. Completely overhauled it features a new, lighter weight stretch nylon fabric and a more streamlined construction, allowing for greater freedom of movement.

Bonded seams and hems provide further weight saving, and also help to create a clean aesthetic. A low-profile bonded chest pocket with a bonded zip keeps small valuables secure without adding weight or bulk, and stretch mesh panels on the sides and centre back aid ventilation when working hard. It is windproof, water resistant and perfect for cool mornings and brisk descents. The gilet has a full-length, offset zip with a soft fleece chin guard to prevent chafing and a lockdown puller to eliminate rattles. Reflective details on the back and sides offer an element of visibility, and when not in use, the gilet packs down small enough to easily fit into a jersey pocket. The gilet has a long-cut back, and a dropped tail protects from road spray.

"The Rapha Classic Gilet II represents a well-thought-out and considered design, with lots of nice little touches. There’s a nice range of colours available too. The price is justified by the quality, versatility and repair service."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic Gillet II I am a 195 pund rider and the XL size was a comfortable fit, not too tight and not too loose. The vest folds up easily and will fit comfortably in a jersey pocket. A fine piece of gear for cool days or when there is a bit of wind: it is that extra layer that adds some comfort on a cool day. I like the Napoleon pocket for storing credit cards and driver's license, although I wish it were just an inch bigger in length so I could fit my car key in without it bulging so much, but a small thing in the end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Rapha Item I've purchased I love all the Rapha items but so far this is my favorite item I've bought from Rapha ever. I wear a medium and this is not too tight and has room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great gilet Lightweight and great protection. I've worn this gilet almost every day for the last two weeks, and am very pleased with it. It's a snug fit, which helps enhance its protection. I find it is true to size, but, unlike a jersey, there is no give, so you have to be honest about your size :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vent Up the Back a Shocker... Works Good! This Vest Does a good job to give just enough wind block in the front and yet the back allows moisture to escape well. Worn over the Classic Long Sleeve it makes a nice wide range of temps feasible. Don't overlook this piece. Sizing: I'm 5'11" 155lbs 41" Chest 30" Waist and 34" inseam. The Medium is perfect and fits over base layer + Jersey just fine....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent piece of kit This one is extremely light, easy to pack and doesn't allow any wind to come through. Useful pockets in the back as well! Keeps you warm at all time. I even wear these on colder winter/autumn/spring rides s over my vest to be sure I won't have cold. Just beware: this gillet is not a rain gillet.

Hi,i currently own a small brevet gilet that fits with enough room to wear a long sleeved jersey and nylon shell underneath would I fit a small in the classic ii gilet?

Asked by: Lithiumrx
The Small Classic Gillet II should be a good fit too. This also has a relaxed fit.

Would this be warmer than the brevet insulated gilet?

Asked by: Conza
The Classic Gilet is designed for miler weather and the Insulated Gilet would be more appropriate for cooler temperatures due to its in built insulation. However, 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.

I am a L in the original Classic Gilet. Will I be an L in the version 2?

Asked by: DannyP
Hi, the Classic Gilet II is of a more streamline construction, if your Large Classic Gilet in Large fits with ample room to go over a jersey with stuffed pockets then a Large will be suitable. Should you need to exchange, we have a 90 days return period.

I wear an S for my classic jerseys and M for ProTeams. This gilet would be ok for S? 

Asked by: EddyEddEd
The Classic Gilet II is made of a stretchy nylon fabric but also has a more streamlined construction so I suggest trying a Medium unless you like it to fit quite streamline.
