Rated 5 out of 5 by from Understated cycling elegance This is a lovely cycling jacket, no mistake. It's reflective piping make it safe to have on the bike, but nothing about it screams "bike gear". You could wear it happily as a layer tooling around town. As other reviewers have noted, the Loro Piana contribution is understated to the point of invisibility. I have a preference for garments that don't scream logos and brands, so this is a great fit for me. Even the tone-on-tone Rapha logo is understated. A lovely garment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A classic, with even more style This jacket is a great looking performer. The high collar and flaps over the pockets are stylish touches that also keep the elements out. Arm length is good with comfortable cuffs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent jacket The jacket appears to be very light weight. However I wore it on a 29 degree Fahrenheit day and it was outstanding. The zipper connections is a little fragile but otherwise the item is outstanding.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from can take a beating in the weather did 2 hrs in the snow last week, the weather got very wet - but the fabric kept me very dry - the DWR works very well - the only thing i have to say is that when I read the fine wool finish on the product description, it didn't feel wool at all, in fact the felt more like any other sport fabric finish with DWR - I didn't quite feel the Loro Piana touch to it - a bit plain at the end.

The jacket is advertised as a soft shell. Is it really breathable? Will it allow perspiration to escape? The pit zips suggest a more standard hard-shell approach to ventilation. When I attempt to blow a breath through the fabric I am unable to do so.

Asked by: jamie1
Hi, wool is naturally breathable so this jacket will most certainly have some breathability. Though of course, it is also treated to protect you from the elements so do bear this in mind when layering, as too many layer may make you over heat. Should you wish to find out more we do have a feature on this jacket.

Why is it dry clean only?

Asked by: BR31
Hi, this item is dry clean due to the material and construction. A dry clean will ensure the jacket's longevity.

Since this jacket is dry clean only - can you wear this in the rain? basically what happens if you get this jacket wet while riding outdoors?

Asked by: samsonite
This jacket is treated with a durable Water Repellant and has tapered seams for Water Resistance. If you get this jacket wet, then please hang to dry and this should suffice.

Are all zips for the jacket waterproof ? Can the collar be folded down to sit flat? Is the same membrane from the softshell winter jacket used in the wool jacket? What is the ideal temperature range for this jacket?

Asked by: Sah C
This garment has a standing collar and waterproof zips but this does not have the same membrane as the Softshell Jacket as this is made form a wool-based material. The temperature range for the jacket can be used around 10 to -5 degrees. However, as we all regulate temperature differently it is hard to advice on the temperature range for individuals and differing exertion levels will also affect its properties.

How is DWR solution to be re-applied if needed if the jacket can only be dry cleaned?

Asked by: Sadique
For the dry cleaning, it should be the specialist performance clean so as not to strip the DWR. If you decide to professionally dry-clean your garment, request clear, distilled hydrocarbon solvent rinse. The DWR spray can be reactivated by spray application and being gently heated either on a low tumble setting or by using a Hairdryer

What colour is it? Navy? Also - for real, is it actually dry clean only? The old version was really good!

Asked by: Froggo
Hi, this jacket is Navy and indeed this particular one which is the Wool Edition is Dry Cleaning only due to the 93% wool and 5% silk mix.

Why is it dry clean only ? 

Asked by: E Rider
Hi, natural fibers such as wools and silks can shrink, distort, and lose color when washed in water. Dry cleaning is suggested to clean fabrics that degrade in water, and delicate fabrics that cannot withstand the rough and tumble of a washing machine and clothes dryer.
