What they say: Made from lightweight fabrics that offer enough protection, breathability and stretch while allowing the gilet to pack down to the size of a small orange.
What we say: Posh. That’s the first word that springs to mind when you first take this out of the presentation box it comes in. Closely followed by the word ‘quality’ as you start to examine the standard of the finish and the materials used. Made from a polyester/nylon/spandex mix, this gilet’s front panels are entirely windproof, and have been treated with a very effective water repellent. The back, meanwhile, is perforated for temperature regulation, and moisture management, while two zipped entry points allow access to your jersey pockets.
The front zip is oblique rather than straight, reducing the chances of wind or rain creeping through your layers, while a subtle reflective shoulder seam tape and rear stripe assist visibility. It’s seriously stylish, too. Available in red, grey or black in sizes XS-XXL.
