Taking the best of our Softshell jacket (except for the sleeves, of course), our Softshell vest adds a fleece-lined Roubaix-style back panel for added breathability. The vest features a closer overall fit for improved laying over our Thermal or Signature Long Sleeve Jerseys.

We partnered with eVent, a leader in high performance membranes, to develop our proprietary three-layer softshell, incorporating their Direct Vent stretch membrane with Primaloft performance yarn backer and durable stretch woven and DWR treated face. The result is a truly breathable softshell that has the ability to manage moisture and keep the internal climate warm, but dry -- a critical equation for long winter miles. Designed for temperatures from freezing to 50F and capable of warding off all but the most torrential downpours, thanks to it’s 10K waterproof membrane, it’s a one-jacket solution to winter riding. And, by combining the Softshell with our Alpha Long sleeve, the two-piece system easily covers the bravest of souls comfortably down to the single digits (without the risk of breaking a sweat).

  • 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.

Women's sizing guide

Taking your measurements

All styles are intended to be form-fitting, across the entire size range. Find a flexible tape measure and take your own body measurements.

Chest - Start by placing a measuring tape around the largest part of your chest. The tape should be flat but not too snug.

Waist - Your natural waist lies between your bottom ribs and hip bones, close to the navel. To measure, breathe deeply, relax your stomach and lie the tape measure flat around your waist, allowing for a ¼ inch of slack.

Hip - Measured around the widest point of your hips.

    Great vest for adverse conditions

    This is a fantastic vest for those of us who are riding in cold and adverse conditions, but also run a little warm as you begin climbing. I carry weight in my mid-section so I found the waist was pretty tight in comparison to the rest of the fit (even as having a larger chest, that part was done perfectly), but it didn't prevent me from getting lots of items in the back pockets and I still had two layers on underneath (one very thin, one a thicker jersey). It was great to have the wind/water protection but also to be able to shed some heat when you're climbing. I'm 5'8", 160 and purchased a large.

    Best Vest I’ve Worn! Windproof!

    This vest is so nice and windproof but not too thick either so it’s very warm but also doesn’t get too warm either. It’s great for 55-65 deg weather IMO. Take the chill away from riding at high speed on bike and great for descents which are always a little cold!

    Warmest vest ever, yet so light!

    This vest is perfect for cold days, and it breathes so well. I never feel overheated.

    Too *****

    I bought a size medium on the recommendation of a friend who is an ambassador for Velocio and told me to size up for any outerwear. The waist fit fine but the top part with darts was too bit and would fit a size D-cup woman. Was cut for women with big boobs. Didn't work for my athletic figure. The review forces me to click one of the options for "product fit" and only gives me "runs small" "true to size" and "runs large." This item was partly true to size and partly runs large.
