Lightweight, packable, weather-resistant insulation

Long-distance riders can encounter a full range of weather conditions, so a lightweight layer that is both warm and packable is essential. The Brevet Insulated Jacket provides exceptional warmth, while highly breathable Polartec® Alpha® insulation ensures you won’t overheat during harder efforts. Extensively tested across a range of conditions: from the Transcontinental race across Europe, to the cold summits of Australia’s snowy mountains.

This versatile jacket is made for days when the weather is hard to predict. The fast-drying and hydrophobic properties of Polartec® Alpha® mean the jacket won’t hold water like natural down insulation and with a DWR (durable water repellent) coating you can watch the rain roll off.

Soft, brushed jersey side panels add warmth and allow the jacket to stretch over full pockets, while reflective detailing increases visibility in low light. When not in use the jacket rolls up neatly, secured by an elasticated loop at the neck.

Karen Whittier, product manager for insulation at Polartec, explains the science behind Polartec® Alpha®:

Polartec® Alpha® was engineered as an active insulation to regulate core body temperatures during both dynamic and static activities. This ‘adaptive’ breathability helps to eliminate the need for shedding or adding layers while on the move, making it ideal for cycling.

By keeping moisture vapour moving freely through the fabric, it increases overall air exchange and drastically speeds up dry times, providing thermal regulated comfort. Polartec® Alpha® is also highly compressible, made with a stable core that prevents ‘fibre migration’ to keep a uniform consistency, even after heavy wear and repeated laundering.

FEATURES

  • Quick-drying and hydrophobic Polartec® Alpha® insulation for warmth in all conditions
  • Self-storing (folds into band at neck) for easy packing
  • DWR (durable water repellent) coating ensures that you stay dry in wet weather
  • Wind-resistant fabric gives protection from the elements
  • Dropped rear hem for added protection from road spray
  • Reflective detailing throughout for riding in low light
  • Concealed valuables pocket
  • Lockable zip puller to prevent jacket opening while riding
  • Brushed stretch side panels add warmth and accommodate full jersey pockets

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect winter jacket I’ve been riding in this jacket for the last month or so. It adds a different protection to other jackets in my wardrobe. This jacket comes in to its own in cold, windy and on the coldest of winter days. The days when if you use your thermal winter jacket, you may have to run a waterproof jacket over the top. For me this jacket fits perfect in to the category of a jacket and thermal top rolled in to one and this is how I’ve been wearing it, the days when I don’t want to wear both. The only things I would personally improve is the length of the jacket and a larger bigger pocket in the rear. I would like a little bit more length in the jacket overall. I wear a med size and I’m 5,11” but I feel that many of the rapha products fit perfect round the chest and arms. But lack in length for taller riders. This has been mention to me many times from other riders that are slim but tall. I still give this jacket top marks, but future jackets with these improvements would take it to another level. I’m a Yorkshire lad that rides everyday, rain or shine. Cheers

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Snug as a bug, in a rug. If anyone is familiar with the Wear Valley in County Durham, then they'll know it's cold and windy - all year round. This jacket keeps you toastie while overs shiver (especially when descending Chapel Fell).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart Looking, Exceeded Expectations This jacket exceeded my expectations. I've been caught out in consistent, but not heavy rain and mist in 40F degree autumn weather with only a merino base layer and was quite comfortable. Seems like the perfect, versatile jacket for cool/cold and even wet weather.

Hi Rapha - what's warmer Brevet Insulated Jacket or Pro Team insulated jacket?

Asked by: EdHeD
Hi, as we all regulate temperature differently it is hard to advice on the temperature ranges as it differs on individuals preference. We find the Pro Team Insulated Jacket best suitable for high tempo rides and the Brevet Insulated Jacket best suitable longer rides.

How it could be folded, would it be folded like a small bag?

Asked by: Brevet insulated jacket
Hi, we suggest zipping up and folding as you would in a store. Lay flat, left quarter in and arm in, right quarter in and arm in, fold bottom half towards the neck and then roll from that bottom half up and lace the elastic band from the neck over the rolled up jacket.

Asked by: mikemro
You can zip the jacket up, fold it in half and roll from the bottom nice and tight and then you will be able to place the loop over the bundle for this to go into your Jersey pocket.
