A good vest is a must-have pick for riding comfort in a wide range of conditions. Form fit and true-to-size, the wind vest employs windproof fabric across the front and sides with a four-way stretch mesh over the back for the best combination of protection and comfort. Imperceptible but invaluable, a well-designed vest extends the range of rides and packs away when not fulfilling its duties.
Totally redesigned for 2017, the updated Wind Vest is cut in at the sleeves to allow a smoother finished feel across the chest when in a riding position, the entire design of the Wind Vest is aimed to reduce flapping, noise and feedback both audible and against your body while you pedal. This vest is more substantial than our Ultralight option, yet it’s updated design is 30% lighter than the previous edition. It packs down and easily fits into a jersey pocket and yet offers windproof and water resistant protection. Details like the micro fleece lined collar add little comfort where you don’t expect to find it in a very light vest. With three pockets and a two-way Vislon zipper, because the difference in those details makes all the difference in how useful a vest is when the rubber meets the road.
FIT NOTE: The size of the Wind Vest has been designed to allow some layering while still being fitted. We recommend the same size as your jersey size.
