Description

The Souplesse Insulated Gilet makes use of the revolutionary Polartec Alpha® insulation to create the perfect outer layer for hard rides on changeable days, pre-race warm-ups, or even for café stops.

The Alpha® insulation delivers class-leading warmth without the volume of down, and is highly breathable, ensuring you don’t overheat during harder efforts. Equally fast-drying and hydrophobic, the gilet won’t hold moisture like natural down, allowing you to work a sweat up without wetting out. A DWR-coated, windproof front keeps your chest warm, while the stretch fabric on the back ensures a great fit, as well as letting body heat out. The gilet even has three pockets on the back for storing valuables, and the double-ended Vislon zip provides easy access to your jersey pockets and helps you regulate body temperature.

“…a surprisingly effective piece of kit. It is warm but doesn’t get swampy during hard efforts. This means when you stop or ease up after those winter intervals, you aren’t going to be damp and cold. It is also lightweight with very little bulk. Polartec Alpha may be the first insulation I’ve encountered that seems to genuinely work well for aerobic activities.”

– Brittany Jones, velonews.com

“The nicest item of road-bike clothing you'll ever buy…True to Rapha's detail-honed heritage, all the little things are on point, too, from the reflective hit at the bottom of the middle pocket and the hidden, zippered storage—big enough for an iPhone or car keys—on the side.”
