Sportsister tests – Rapha Women’s Classic Bike Jersey & Arm Warmers

March 5, 2012

I was super excited to test this Rapha Cycling Jersey & Arm Warmers, and they definitely lived up to my expectations. They were put to the test on a chilly February morning and passed with flying colours!
Score: 4.5/5

– Extremely warm, yet breathable and suitable for many weather conditions.
– The styling is great and has a really feminine silhouette, plus the stretch material is really comfortable to ride in.
– The attention to detail is brilliant. There are three main cargo pockets, an elastic waist band with drawstring, a full zip and reflective tabs.
– The arm warmers are a great addition. The soft gripper elastic to keeps them in place and the brushed fleece inner lining feels lovely.
– Rapha offer an amazing service  with a free 90 day returns policy to test your kit, and free repairs if any kit is damaged in a cycling accident – pretty good policies!

– Arm warmers were only just long & small enough, but I do have exceptionally long arms!
– Price may put some people off but Merino Wool is durable and I am sure the kit will last well past the investment, so don’t be put off.
