Classic protection from the rain

The rain is harder than the cold. To some degree, cold is easy, you can just add layers, but rain? Rain requires a more complex solution. The Classic Rain Jacket II takes everything we have learned in over a decade of protecting riders against the elements and condenses that knowledge into a versatile, breathable and easily stowable waterproof shell.

Made of a 2.5-ply fabric on the body and 3-ply on the arms, and with taped seams throughout, the jacket will keep you dry on rainy days. The body fabric is impressively breathable too, stopping you overheating when it’s warmer out.

Offering a slightly more spacious regular fit than the original to allow for layering on really cold days, the jacket also features an AquaGuard® zip, taped seams and a cuff construction that encourages water to roll down over rather than into your gloves.

A zipped front side pocket is large enough for a wallet or other valuables and reflective trims provide visibility in low light conditions typical of wet-weather riding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Just awesome. I got the bright red one cuz I wanna be seen by the drivers. Easy to pack and carry plus the fit is spot on. Great bit of kit if the weather is uncertain.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very waterproof Used in torrential rain for the first time, not a drop came through. Dry as a bone underneath. Very comfortable fit, and breathable too. Bad points is the zip is very small - not easy to use with gloves on, near impossible with winter gloves - and absolutely 0/10 for visabillity. A jacket designed for cycling in adverse weather conditions really should have at least a little bit of reflective material on the back.

The CoreRain jacket at about half the price seems to offer the same protection and material as the Classic Rain Jacket II. What am I not understanding??

Asked by: sheet
Hi, these are similar but different in cut and fit. The Classic has a higher level of detail. As far as waterproof levels they are both very similar.

I am a medium in most things Rapha would this be ok in medium to as it’s a jacket??

Asked by: Smiffy 67
Hi, because fit is not just dependent on height and weight but mostly on each body shape and customer's personal preference to how customer's prefer garments to fit, it is hard for us to be exact in sizing advice.Our best advice is to please follow our sizing guide and should you need to exchange, we have a 90 days return period for new/unused garments with tags and in saleable condition.

How small does the rain jacket pack down to? Will it fit in a pro-team jersey pocket?

Asked by: Greg11
This jacket can be folded down and rolled small enough to be slotted into the middle back pocket. The folding down size of a jacket will always depended on how meticulously a rider manages to fold it.

What is the difference between this classic rain jacket and the (team) race cape, especially when it comes to breathability and waterproofness?

Asked by: Gunter V
Hi, both of these jackets are very similar in waterproof and breathability, where they differ the most will be in shape and fit as well as some of the features. Whilst the Pro Team Race Cape has more of a race fit, streamlined and longer as well as details such zips on the cuffs, and small pocket for card and cash, the Classic Rain Jacket II is more of relaxed fit and offers a more generous front pocket.
