Very little does more to improve a cool weather ride than a vest. The RECON Quilted Vest is made to extend that cool weather comfort beyond pedaling. The fit and versatility of our Wind Vest with added warmth, protection and style thanks to Global Merino Ponte merino wool base fabric and an ultralight Pertex Quantum shell. Quilted side panels offer a subtle detailing that, paired with a moto-inspired metal zipper, looks clean and casual after the pedaling stops. Wear it over the RECON Wool Long Sleeve. Wear it over a button down. Wear it with denim. The RECON does insulation duty without sacrificing performance or style.
RECON is a new collection designed to extend the range of performance apparel. Marrying the highest quality technical materials with urban design queues and a tailored cycling cut, the RECON is equally at home on the dirt roads of Vermont, high alpine climbs of France or the streets of Manhattan. At its heart is pedaling and when the gears begin to turn, performance isn’t compromised.
Velocio utilizes Global Merino® wool- blend fabrics in our new RECON line for its naturally hydrophobic, odor resistant and temperature regulating properties. A world leader in technical wool fabric, Global Merino® creates some of the finest technical fabrics, sourcing sustainably raised wool, and combining them with new technologies. Their commitment to environmental responsibility is underscored by the Bluesign® certification of their manufacturing process and their commitment to making sustainable, long lasting fabrics.
Fit Note: The RECON Quilted Vest is a slightly more relaxed fit for on and off the bike. If you prefer a closer fit, we recommend sizing down.
