Rapha’s redesigned Lightweight Softshell
When Rapha launched its new winter range recently, it did so with the new Lightweight Softshell. It’s based on the original Softshell jacket, but with a new fabric and a few less features, is much lighter, making it the ideal jacket for changeable conditions.
The jacket uses a Hytel membrane, 100% windproof and highly breathable, and with DWR treatment is water resistant. It goes without saying that the jacket is well designed, and the slim fit hugs the body. There’s a dropped tail, an offset zip, a raised collar and lyrca cuffs to keep the cold out. And it’s not without stowage options: three large pockets with one zipped pocket and neat button-holes and cable loops for your MP3 player.
And the best thing about the jacket has to be the three colours it’s available in, olive green, red and pale blue.
The jacket retails for £175 but RoadCyclingUK.com members can enjoy a 10% discount. To find out how to redeem this offer visit Rapha 10% Reader Offer page now.
