Rapha Womens Brevet Gilet with PocketsRegular price $155.00
A lightweight, packable and windproof outer layer designed for distance. Updated with smart pocket storage and improved packability.
Rapha’s original Brevet Gilet quickly become one of the most popular cycling vests in the industry when it was launched in 2011. Much-loved for successfully combining hi-vis and reflective details into a non-garish, smart design, it has been worn by cyclists all over, from long-distance epics to commutes to work, and everything in-between. For 2017, Rapha’s product developers set themselves a task: how to improve it?
The biggest change is a newly engineered rear pocket structure: the middle pocket cleverly opens out into a full width pocket ‘bag’, allowing you to easily store larger jackets or the provisions required for a long-distance ride without cramming them into small pockets. The gilet has been refined all over for a cleaner finish. The now iconic Brevet reflective and hi-vis stripes remain across the chest and back, while improved mesh side panels stretch to even accommodate full jersey pockets. The zip is now two-way, improving versatility for temperature regulation and access to jersey pockets. Even more packable than before, the Brevet Gilet remains the go-to for those in-between moments when a jersey isn’t warm enough and a jacket would be too hot.
