Sentinel foul weather jersey

(12 customer reviews)


A versatile cycling jersey to keep you warm when training in all weathers.

With only a light base layer, you can ride with comfort. A jersey that lets you click in to your pedals under threatening clouds, without a worry. The technical material will block fierce north winds and keep you warm in long races or longer days 

Unbelievable Foul weather Jersey. Had this on 2 days now with the rain and wind- who needs a rain coat #justajersey #galibiervelo”

The material is now DWR treated before production, giving the material a lasting water shedding treatment. The goal of this jersey is to keep you warm while riding in ALL conditions and the latest Mistral does this seamlessly. The soft-shell is water resistant, but due to the superior body stretch of the material, the seams cannot be internally taped, so in a downpour, the rain will eventually get through. The magic of the Sentinel is that you will not get cold, being 100% windproof and with a breathable rating of over 10,000. But remember – It’s just a jersey.


Use with only a base layer from 7 to 16 degreesC.

One of our riders who used it on a recent event describes it best :

“I had a warm chest, on a fast descent, in a thunderstorm…unreal”

Sizing guide

The garment is designed to be neat fitting and only requires a thin base layer next to the skin. These are new generation fabrics, so we need to reconsider how we dress for conditions. This requires no extra layering in wind or rain.  If you want a looser fit or plan to wear more garments underneath, please size up.

“Im 34 waist and 42 chest and the XL was a Great fit”–   Mark

If in-between sizes, size up as race fit. Designed for only a light base layer

    I’ve done a few rides in this since Christmas in temps of under 4 degrees. With two thin summer baselayers and arm warmers underneath I’ve been warm, and endured solid rain and stayed dry. The jersey/jacket is comfortable and light, feels just like a normal jersey but with all the advantages of a soft shell. Top class clothing.

    Brilliant weather resistant (near proof) jersey that is priced great. I wear this for my commute so I don’t get too hot as it breathes really well for the protection it gives. I’ve worn it down to 0°C with a baselayer and been happy with good gloves & arm warmers. 6’3 and 83kg, 33in waist, ~42in chest and size XL is a good fit.

    Really well thought out design. The sleeves are slightly longer than my other jerseys so cover the tops of arm warmer. The scooped back is long while the front is short. The neck is nice and high. Pockets are spot on.

    Would love some beefier arm warmers from Galibier to match this… I’d buy them immediately.

    This Jersey is awesome. We ride a weekly night ride where it gets down to single figures all to regularly. I wear this with the barrier base layer and some arm warmers and it’s more than warm enough and brilliantly waterproof. It’s so food that a couple of my mates have bow brought one as well. Can’t recommend this highly enough if you ride in the wet or in lower temperatures

    Started off in clear blue skies and wondered why I’d chosen to wear the Sentinel. Then Storm Ellen dumped a torrential downpour on Ireland and I knew why. Core kept dry and warm. Can’t praise this jacket enough. I don’t think its claimed to be fully waterproof but the rain just beaded on the surface. I can see this being worn in all seasons.

    This is the first technical fabric cycling clothing I’ve got and the first from Galibier. Used it on a night ride down to 11 degrees and it was amazing. Windproof, warm and breathable. Never knew cycling could be so much better with proper clothing. Will be getting more from the company since they local too.

    Excellent jersey. I’m comparing the Sentinel to a short sleeved Gabba and it does a comparable job at a fraction of the price. It feels a bit heavier than the Gabba, but in West-of=Ireland weather that’s fine by me! The rain beads off and it does a superb job of keeping you warm and dry. A super piece of kit.

    Having owned a ss Gabba from that expensive Italian cycle clothing co for over 3 years I can honestly say the Sentinel is better. Better stitching, better zip, better fit (the sizing chart is spot on.) Better styling, and a mile of handsome reflective graphics down the back. Very pleased. Im 6’1″ 42 in. Chest, the xl bob on. Only one v minor niggle are the sleeve cuffs a little baggy and I’m not weedy.. but as I said a minor thing.

    First and only use so far was on Exmoor in the typically mizzley wet conditions. It was probably too warm for this top, but it stopped me getting soaked through over the course of a few hours. This is a superb top and looks stunning in flame red. I have a Gabba too, but for this sort of money I don’t think I’ll be replacing it now I gave the Galibier. Top stuff.

    Wore the Sentenel jacket for the first time today,13 degrees, miserable day with a couple of heavy downpours and I was dry and comfortable the water just beaded off.The large was a perfect fit,I’m 6’0 and 77k, top marks again another quality product.
    Note to Galibier. A pair of water repellent arm warmers would be a great addition to your product list.

    Arrived and have used on two rides in fine Scottish summer, fine up to 16c any more it would be too warm but ideal for the 10c start on a cool damp early morning ride. Feels similar and perhaps a little heavier than my Gabba jersey… No bad thing if it performs the same, so far so good. Stitching not as neat but feels durable enough, fabric itself is obviously quality stuff though. Red colour looks great. I went for a medium as was close to upper limit of small. To be honest the fit was a bit like my equipe jersey… Could not go much closer around waist and middle but a little bit loose in chest, shoulder and sleeve… This is only downside for me, I’m a fairly slim cyclist with the usual narrow chest and arms that go with long days in saddle. If you want it fitted you need to up your arm game and get that chest expanded! But that being said, I don’t intend to race in this so a little space around shoulders and chest is no harm. There is a little stretch in material but not like lycra so I’d definitely not size down. Overall a great price for a jersey that is all intents and purposes up for the same conditions as the famous Italian but a little fitting quirk to bear in mind. Looks superb mind you.

    First ride today. 14c, no baselayer, jersey performed great, didn’t feel the wind and when the rain came it just beaded on the jersey. Great product again Galibier and great price. Still can’t find the advertised chest phone pocket though . #itsjustajersey
