Rapha Stowaway jacket review
Rapha hit the nail on the head with its new Stowaway when it comes to looks, style and function.
The soft, stretchy material on this jacket is water-resistant and copes well in a short shower, but is designed to be better at transporting sweat than providing rain resistance, and here it does a sterling job.
Helping to keep weight to a minimum, only the areas hardest hit around the shoulders are taped to ﬁght wind and rain. The cut is true racer style, with no ﬂapping, and it also has a drop tail, waterproof zip and packs small to put in your back pocket.
A great choice for the racer with boutique tastes who wants a lightweight and stylish summer jacket.
If you’re asking “How much?!” then the Stowaway jacket isn’t for you, though, and if style doesn’t matter much to you, there isn’t quite £170’s-worth of performance here.
