Materials & Care

Fabric Content

100% Recycled Polyester

Made in LT

Caring for your cycling gear properly will extend its life and maintain its performance, fit and quality. Its 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. Youll find that your apparel will soften, and fit & comfort will improve after washing - especially with bibs & shorts. 

Machine wash cool, 86F (30C) 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. Dont 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 jackets fit?
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.

Do everything jacket

I planned to wear this off the bike (which I do, often!) But then I realized it's perfect for fat biking. I wear it all the time now both on AND off the bike. Really love that it's not too bulky but nice and warm.

Women's RECON Snap Jacket

I've mostly been using the jacket for my early morning bird walks. It works great for this purpose as it is lightweight, windproof and showerproof. I love the top pocket for my phone so I can use my birding apps. Easily removed and stored back in the pocket. On the bike, it's a bit tight to say the least and I get warm quickly. Velocio was very quick on returns and exchanges.

  • Size purchased Originally I got the small based on the size fit chart, the medium is still a bit snug.

Thanks for the great customer service, I love the jacket!

I made a mistake with my address but they were super quick about shipping me another one. I love the look of this, how physically light it is while also being cozy and warm, and it seems to be durable (crucial where I live!) it took me forever to decide on buying this, but I’m really happy I did. Thanks!

Velocio Women's RECON Snap Jacket Review

Really wanted to love it, but ...

First, I really love Velocio, they're my favorite cycling brand, especially for a petite fit (I'm a perfect XXS, every time), so I had high hopes and really wish I could have made this work. - It's a close fit, as Velocio products are typically and designed to be on the bike. But, I couldn't imagine wearing fitting anything but the most skin tight layer underneath, and for a blended purpose 'Recon' jacket, felt like I would want to be comfortable in at least a regular-weight or merino long-sleeve (which I'd probably wear in such cold weather on or off the bike). - The inside is a soft brushed, plush material. That makes it amazingly comfortable off the bike, but I felt like I'd become uncomfortable immediately on working up the slightest sweat or exertion on the bike. -Color is beautiful. But, on the bike, I'd want a little more reflective strips. Off the bike, the turquoise was a bit funky. So, parts are perfect on the bike (fit), parts are perfect off the bike (comfort), but it doesn't do either perfectly, and I didn't want something that would do both halfway. I just knew I wouldn't reach for it and couldn't justify the price at the point.

I love the Recon Snap Jacket!

I ride in NW Colorado and our shoulder seasons can be long and filled with unpredictable weather. This jacket is the perfect piece to stuff in my saddle bag on a day when I might see wind or lots of sun or everything in between. It is warm and blocks the wind. I love the zipper pockets. It fits great over a jersey with things in the pockets, but has a slim enough fit to look good as a casual spring jacket off the bike. All my friends want one now!
