Sleek, futuristic softshell jacket that shows such attention to detail, you’ll wrack your brains trying to think of something they missed. With pit zips for ventilation, an optional drop tail, offset front zip for cool looks and to avoid chin rub, rubberized patch on one shoulder to keep bag strap secure, rear cargo pockets, pump sleeve, zipped valuables pocket and the list goes on. As importantly though, it’s cut well and looks great.
Most leg warmers are much of a muchness but these new ones from Rapha are well made with some high-quality features.
If you’re familiar with Rapha’s knee warmers, these are made from the same Roubaix fabric. If not, it’s an ultra-soft blend of polyamide, polyester and elastane – stretchy with a fleecy inner face. It feels great next to your skin, is highly breathable, and provides enough warmth for most autumn/winter conditions, although it’s not windproof.
