WHAT THEY SAY: De­signed for milder weather, this up­dated ver­sion of our pop­u­lar gilet is per­fect for cool starts and cooler de­scents.

WHAT WE SAY: Rapha’s gilet uses a mix of solid panels to keep the wind in check with stretchy mesh panels un­der the arms and at the back to add breatha­bil­ity. It’s pa­per thin and packs down into a tidy lit­tle pack­age that can be tucked into one of the two rear pock­ets. A fur­ther small zipped pocket on the ch­est rounds out its car­ry­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties. It’s wa­ter re­sis­tant, rather than wa­ter­proof, while the elas­ti­cated arm­holes fur­ther help to keep the el­e­ments at bay. Dis­creet brand­ing on the neck and back pro­vides a splash of re­flec­tiv­ity. We like the lit­tle clip that along with the zip keeps it closed, while there’s also a la­bel inside which tells you all about Le Mis­tral, the Mediter­ranean wind that both­ers Mont Ven­toux, among other places. As ever with Rapha, it’s all the de­tail. Avail­able in sizes XS-XXL and in pale blue, navy and black.
