We designed the Classic Gilet II for rides in cool weather and changeable conditions. Windproof and water resistant, it is perfect for cool mornings and brisk descents.
A bonded, zipped chest pocket keeps valuables safe without adding bulk. Stretch mesh panels on the sides and centre back add ventilation when you're working hard. Bonded seams and hems reduce bulk for a gilet that's easy to pocket.
A full-length, offset zip is easy to adjust on the bike, and a soft fleece chin guard protects your neck. Reflective details help you stay seen, 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.”

“Good fit and material make for a top performing gilet. Its stretchy fabric provides a fitted flap-free cut and being Rapha has a race fit. Rapha has used more substantial windproof panels on the front and back which do a good job of keeping the elements out. These panels also feature a hydrophobic coating that sees rain bead off during a shower.”
