- rapha winter jersey worth the money?
2nd what warton says. They do make good kit, and some incredibly glord stuff.
i have a few of their tops including the cross jersey and they are made well. Its got a few more bobbles and pulls than an equivalent northwave one i have, but its a log lightrr/thinner and just as warm. Nice fit too.
For a hundered quid its worth a pop.Posted 3 years ago
Reduced to £100 got me thinking of trying g one next winter as my old gore is on last legs. Also noticed pro team jacket for 130. Is the stuff good, reviews seem to say so, just wondered about real life users. These prices bring it down to gore / pearl izumi etc prices.
Will be used for commuting and winter road / cross rides.Posted 3 years ago
The vents look good as I normally suffer from the cold at the start of a ride but run quite warm after first half hour.

Slightly different spin.
I have heaps of rapha and this is a very good top, but for me it is not a winter top , even with a Marino base layer. It is just not wind proof enough, unless you wear something over it.
I use mine in 7-12 degree range only. It is very good and at about four years old still looks in fine condition, but for me it is not a winter top!
Castelli espresso does that job.

Just ordered a large. Can’t go wrong at that price !
If you can justify the price fine; but they are not good value for money. I have used windproof winter jerseys from Altura that cost me half the Rapha sale price and have lasted 3 year so far. Currently using a Gore one bought in Wiggle sale last winter and it’s brill – and was 2/3 of the price.
The Rapha stuff looks great and appears to be well made, but you can get garments that perform and wear at least as well for far less.Posted 3 years agotaxi25Member
Saying you “can’t go wrong at that price” doesn’t imply it functions better than other manufacturers clothing. Only that its cheap for a piece of Rapha kit. Rightly or wrongly some brands are more highly regarded than others. I can’t go wrong, because at that price if I don’t like it, come winter unused it will sell for a profit.Posted 3 years agowartonMember

well, if you crash a rapha top, you send it back, and they fix or replace, free of charge. i sent a pair of shorts back, 1 year old, the chamois stitching had come away, they replaced the chamois, for nowt.
would Altura do that?Posted 3 years ago
