The ultimate cycling jacket

Test ride any of Rapha’s Classic products to destruction and if you are not 100% satisfied within 30-days you can return them for a full refund.

A high-performance jacket for tough winter road riding. Originally launched in 2004 – and part of the Rapha range ever since – today it is acknowledged as the world’s finest road riding jacket. Conceived as an all-day outer shell that was windproof, highly breathable (and didn’t involve fluorescent Lycra), the jacket has won numerous plaudits and the latest incarnation includes improved cuff bindings. Versatile enough to be worn in all but the warmest conditions, if you’re looking for the one Rapha product to start restocking your riding wardrobe, this is it.


“[Proof that] bike gear needn’t commit crimes against fashion.”
– The Independent (London)
It is the cut that sets it apart… no wonder it looks more at home on the pages of GQ than Cycling Monthly.
– The Daily Telegraph (London)
“A softshell is a must for every rider’s wardrobe."
– Cyclist

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rapha at its very best This is my 2nd softshell rapha jacket and I bought this in the black from the online archive at nearly half price ( couldn't believe my luck). This jacket has a fantastic fit with a real look of style and class, I wore through last winter in the wind and cold right upto the mid spring.i have a pro team jacket & a hardshell but this would be the one I would keep if I could only have 1.truly fantastic jacket, tears fit is in line with classic range with really good stretch to keep flapping to a minimum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile and stylish I wish I´d bought the Classic Softshell years ago. It´s perfectly suited for any spring/fall ride, be it a shop-ride or daily commute. Many great details like longer arms, pockets where you need them and properly good insulation against the weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As the name really is a classic. Stylish yet supremely comfortable and functional for winter riding. I use it in the 32-40 f degree range with only a base layer. 20-32 f and I'll add a long-sleeve jersey as well. Warm. Pit-zips work well.

Is this only for men or women..or both? I'm a woman and I would like to know if this is both for men and women or just men/women. (because I think the 'fit' is quite important). Please let me know asap! Thank you :)

What are the car instructions? Does the jacket need to be "re-proofed"?

Asked by: jh106
Hi, in order to prolong the technical capabilities we recommend that the jacket is cleaned with our Apparel wash following the washing instructions which can be found on the care label and then reproofed with our Apparel Re-Proofer.

what is the difference between the classic soft-shell and the pro team soft-shell? Is the latter more water-resistant? Other differences?

Asked by: johnmnz
Hi, The jackets differ on a lot of different technical capabilities and we suggest referring to the web pages for full information of these as the full answer is more complicated. In short the Pro Team Softshell jacket is designed for racing and high-intensity training in wet conditions and is an exceptionally technical race-ready product.. The Classic Softshell offers insulation, breathability and windproofing, water resistance in a Classic cut, created for tempo riding in variety of conditions, the jacket is ideal for winter training.

What is the point of the patch on the left shoulder? I have no idea....

Asked by: 7978
Hi, the shoulder patch is a design detail. When the Classic softshell was first made the patch was positioned to accommodate the strap for a courier type bag to avoid wear on the shoulder. It has now become an intrinsic part of the jackets style.

What is the "fit" of this jacket? I am 6"1 and usually take a medium in "outer" wear and a small/medium in skin wear, with a 16.5 collar size in shirts. I do not want to order the large (Going by your sizing guide) and end up with it being baggy. Thank yo

Asked by: Ben1
The Classic Softshell is what we loosely term a 'club fit'. While still cycling specific the cut is a little more relaxed than out Pro Team Range. We would suggest a medium for your sizing.
