The Pro Team Insulated Rain Jacket pairs a GORE-TEX Paclite Plus® membrane with a synthetic insulated liner to provide unparalleled protection in cold, wet weather conditions. With an abrasion resistant face fabric, the 2L Paclite shell provides durable waterproof protection – certified to Gore’s Black Diamond standard – without compromise on breathability. Inside, 65gsm synthetic insulation delivers class-leading warmth and is also highly breathable, ensuring you don’t overheat. To keep the elements out, there’s a wide elasticated gripper at the waist, zipped cuffs and a raised collar that is fully lined for maximum protection. There’s space in the internal chest pocket for a phone and cards, while two oversized rear pockets can be accessed easily even when wearing gloves. And for riding in low light conditions, there are reflective Pro Team bars on the sleeves as well as a larger reflective tab between the pockets.
How this was made:
The outer shell of the Pro Team Insulated Rain Jacket is made with recycled nylon. Using recycled nylon reduces our reliance on virgin materials and gives a second life to materials that would otherwise go to landfill. Overall, this change reduces our environmental impact without compromising product performance and durability.

“The Rapha Women's Pro Team Insulated Rain Jacket is all about covering you for those mega grim days when it's both cold and wet, and it delivers on this very effectively. Simply put this jacket on at the start of a ride that looks to be throwing everything at you and you can happily stay warm and dry. There's a two-way zip so you have easy access to your pockets below, though the jacket itself has two rear pockets too, plus a chest pocket, so plenty of options.”
