Rapha + Outdoor Voices women's jersey review

A quality garment with a relaxed fit and some less traditional features

When Rapha revealed its collaboration with US fitness brand Outdoor Voices, the kit was released alongside a marketing campaign that certainly broke the mould. Outdoor Voices is very much a fitness clothing brand (think Lululemon, Sweaty Betty), and this range is targetted more at riders who might be transferring from other sports, or who, for whatever reason, aren't fully on-board with the traditional lycra affair.

The kit is a little bit more relaxed, and there are some features that we're not used to seeing in cycling clothing. However, that doesn't mean to say it's not designed to perform on the bike.
