Rapha Women’s, finally

By Anna | 5 Comments »

Hey ladies!  If you’re anything like us, you’ve been drooling over all things Rapha since your pappa took your training wheels off.  Well finally they’ve gotten around to making a few wearables for our gender, and they’re up on the website now: Rapha Women’s!  The product list is slim – jersey, shorts, and a jacket - but I’m glad they’re taking their sumptuous design in a female direction, and I’m looking forward to future goodies they will produce.

This is the Stowaway Jacket.  I want.  The asymmetrical zipper positioning is nice.

Here’s a picture of women (yes! women! straight off the Rapha website!) wearing said jacket.  Ow Ow!

The main problem, which is a sore subject for all Rapha prodcut admierers regardless of gender, is that they’re fucking expensive as hell!  At $260, I shall not be purchasing this little gem any time soon, if ever.

So, Rapha, how about you make these about 1/3 of the price they are currently listed?  And send me one for free?  That would be greeeeeeeat.

    Agreed! I love the jackets, but I’d never buy one at that price. Honestly, it’d have to cost about $30-$45 for me to even consider it.

    Too bad for Rapha. I’m sure they’ll make plenty of money even without my purchase, though.

    If I had the money, I would totally buy it. A good product made by good people. You pay for quality. I don’t have the money, but if I did…I would rock the hell out of that jacket!

    I started buying from GB company shuttvr.com they have some lovely jerseys at realistic prices and new kit coming in march. They have a cute facebook fanpage showing off new stuff. Their guys stuff is a good fit on me too, I’ve no hips!

    I stopped doing rapha when they started making their kit in asia!
