A sophisticated layering system in a single garment
Fusing the all-day performance of a lightweight merino jersey with the wind-protection of a gilet, the Brevet Long Sleeve Windblock Jersey is inspired by the Rapha Brevet credo of: ‘pack light, travel far’.
This long-sleeve version of the multi-functional Brevet Windblock Jersey has a higher wool content than its short sleeve counterpart for longer, cooler rides. With a panel of windproof fabric (as used in the Rapha Brevet Gilet) stitched onto the front and over the shoulders, reflective and hi-vis Brevet stripes on the front and back, and a reflective Rapha logo, this is a hard-working piece for endurance riding.
Slightly tapered at the waist for a flattering fit, the jersey has five deep pockets for ample storage and a thick silicone hem gripper to keep it in place. The prototype of this garment was tried and tested during 2015’s Transcontinental race; a 4,000km journey across Europe.
“I'm a big fan of wearing a gilet and arm warmers, and was sceptical about how useful the Rapha Women's Brevet Long Sleeve Windblock Jersey would be – a lightweight merino jersey with a kind of 'sewn-on' (and therefore non-removable) gilet – but I'm completely smitten by it. It blocks wind, doesn't overheat, and is perfect for late winter and spring rides.”
