Rapha Pro Team Transfer Hoodie
There are few items of clothing more comfortable and versatile than a hoodie. This wonderfully soft, but undeniably pricey hoodie, from Rapha has a knitted look that definitely elevates its smartness quotient but it’s still like wearing a hug, especially with the hood up. Its waffled cotton fabric insulates really well but, if the temperature does rise or you’re sweaty and wearing it post-exercise, it breathes brilliantly and lets heat and moisture escape well. I’ve worn it on long haul flights, sleeping though sub-zero desert nights, after races and training and, of course, down the pub. Its fit is spot on, not being overly baggy but allowing freedom of movement and the two pockets, although not super secure, are great for keeping your hands toasty. It has washed really well, retaining its size, shape and, most importantly, its stroke-able softness.
Very expensive for a hoodie but a smart looking, technical performing and versatile item of clothing.
