Pre-dawn departures. High mountain passes. Unexpected temperature drops. We made the Ultralight Jacket out of windproof Japanese milled 20gsm Pertex Quantum combined with Veil Mesh panels for stretch and breathability for the most versatile and packable layer of wind protection available. DWR treated to shed the passing shower and cut with a close fit to minimize flapping.


    • Pertex Quantum 20gsm mini-ripstop nylon
    • Wind proof and water resistant with DWR treatment to shake off light precip
    • Veil Mesh inserts add stretch and ventilation for close fit without overheating
    • Reflective logos and trim details for visibility
    • YKK Low-friction Vislon two-way zipper with internal flap and garage
  • Fabric: 100% Nylon
    Made in: Italy

  • Caring for your cycling gear properly will extend its life and maintain its performance, fit and quality. It’s important to consider these instructions carefully. While we stand behind the quality of our apparel, not adhering to these instructions will void our warranty against manufacturing & defects.

    We strongly recommend washing your new gear before wearing it. You’ll find that your apparel will soften, and fit & comfort will improve after washing - especially with bibs & shorts.

    Machine wash cool, 86°F (30°C) with like colors: Cooler temps maintain better longevity for your apparel. Like colors, especially lights, will remain more vibrant when washed with like colors.

    Use mild detergent. Do not bleach or dry clean: Strong detergents & bleach can break down the fibers and elastane in the garment, dramatically reducing its life.

    Close all fastenings: this goes also for other garments mixed in with your cycling apparel. Velcro closures or clasps can catch on stitching or trim and damage your garments.

    Lay flat to dry. Do not tumble dry: Do not put your cycling apparel in the dryer. Even on low heat. Don’t do it. Heat can damage fabric, elastic and heat transfer logos very easily. Lycra (Elastane) is used throughout our garments to provide compression and support and is susceptible to damage from heat and can irreparably damage your apparel.

  • How do your vests fit?
    Our vests are patterned for the riding position, with a tighter fit across the chest and an arm opening with a more forward position. This is intentional to reduce flapping and extra fabric across the chest while riding. When standing, the vest will feel tight across the chest and torso. This piece should fit tight over your jersey (with enough room for a long sleeve and base layer), and shouldn’t appear baggy. We select fabrics that have some elasticity to allow for freedom of movement even with a tailored fit to accommodate some range of fit within each size.

    How do your jackets fit?
    Similar to our vests, our jackets are patterned in the riding position, with a tight fit across the chest and arms with a more forward position. This is intentional to reduce flapping and extra fabric across the chest while riding. When standing, the jacket will feel tight across the chest, shoulders and torso. The arm length might appear long as well. However, the intended fit is tailored for on-the-bike positioning where the shoulders and torso no longer feel tight and the extra arm length hits the wrists in the appropriate spot. Constructed without extra fabric to flap around - it should fit tight over your jersey (with enough room for a long sleeve and base layer), but shouldn’t appear baggy. We select fabrics that have some elasticity to allow for freedom of movement even with a tailored fit to accommodate some range of fit within each size.

Our jerseys and bib shorts are intended to be form fit, providing compressive support, maximizing performance of the fabrics, and reducing fatigue and chaffing. Due to the compressive nature of the fabrics, you will be able to fit into more than one size. Please use the charts below to help determine your optimum size.

  1. Find your weight along the top of the table.
  2. Look down the column to find your appropriate size.
  3. Each size has a height range based on weight.
  4. If you find that you are on the upper or lower end of height and weight for a given size, the garment will have more or less compression respectively.

    Love the jacket!

    The jacket is great. My only suggestion: add some high visibility detail to the back. Could be the same color as the zipper.

    Perfect Layering

    The ultralight jacket has been perfect for the spring shoulder season for layering. Very comfortable with excellent ventilation and stretch.

    Packable and Practical

    I was looking for packable jacket for days where a small amount of extra warmth is needed and this checks that box. Its worth noting that there is a large amount of ventilation in the sleeves so don't expect to be warm like a proper winter jacket. This does compress nicely and easily fits in a jersey back pocket. Fit is slim and proper for cycling to avoid rippling in the wind which is another benefit when compared so a non-cycling alternative like the Patagonia Houdini jacket.

    Just what I needed

    The perfect piece for cold starts and warmer finishes. Fits in jersey pocket with no effort at all, keeps the arms covered and the double zipper and mesh underarms make as ventable as you could ever need.
