What they say: An indispensable piece of insulating equipment, the Mille GT vest is an on-point addition to any cycling wardrobe.
What we say: Assos claims this gilet is big on breathability and insulation, and wed have to say we agree. The Swiss company also offers a subtly different take on the gilet, as the Mille GT it’s a little more stripped back compared to others here.
For example, it does away with actual pockets, instead offering openings so that you can access jersey pockets underneath, all of which keeps down cost and pegs weight to just 140g for our sample. Available in black, red or blue and sizes S-XXL, the Mille range is designed with a little more give than most Assos clothing, making it suitable for a wider range of riders.
Conclusion: Carefully paired back to save weight and price, Mille GT still delivers what you need.
