Product Description

In comparison to all other cycling apparel, we'd argue that rain jackets present the most complications with regard to design and construction. A great rain jacket has a tough job and must meet many requirements. Most obvious, we'd want it to be water-resistant, but not stifle us. We want it to be compact and stuffable, but warm enough for rain showers in the spring and fall. The Rapha Rain Jacket treads that fine line where high performance and overkill meet without stepping over and spoiling the experience.With the Rapha Rain Jacket, one of our favorite clothing companies gives us a piece of essential cycling wear that isn't just dynamic, but beautiful as well. First and foremost, this is an intensely water-resistant jacket -- due to its fabric, fully-taped seams at the neckline and shoulders, waterproof zipper, and neoprene cuffs (a detail we love, by the way.) The attention to detail extends all the way to the back of the jacket as the tail is cut long to keep tire spray from jetting up your back.The Rain Jacket is small enough to stuff into a rear jersey pocket, so you can use it as a wind shell for mountainous descents. Part of its stuffability is that it lacks any excess material. This also means a slender, form-fitting cut, and you'll avoid the parachute effect at speed. While it's an outstanding shell for lousy weather, you can think of it ultimately as a more versatile version of Rapha's beloved Stowaway jacket, i.e. it's well-suited to give you a layer of nice warmth on dry, cool days.The style factor is in full effect with the Rapha Rain Jacket. You get reflective Rapha logos at the lower back and collar; the cuffs and side panels have reflective trim; and the counter-color armband makes it look visually tight. And Rapha's signature offset zipper makes it obvious that this is Rapha.

I'm looking for some advice from my fellow Oregonians.... I'm in the market for a (relatively) inexpensive, waterproof, breathable rain jacket for commuting.

Pitting in the rain

First race is coming up this weekend and the forecast calls for rain (which it usually doesn't here in UT). Haven't raced in rain for a while, and last time was on a SS, so I was thinking of keeping a can of GT-85 in the pit to clean the RD every other lap or so. Anyone tried this? Does the clean ...
