Velocio Fit is designed for comfort and durability. A form-fit silhouette, we made clothing to fit as many body types and riding styles as possible, without sacrificing performance. Should you want a more relaxed fit, we recommend ordering a size up. Velocio bibs and shorts are made from compressive fabric for riding support through an athletic fit. Find your fit through our sizing tables below.
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.
Hips - To achieve the most accurate hip measurement, find the widest point of your hips and place the measuring tape around. The hip bone often isn't the widest point - it's one to two inches lower, where your butt is at its fullest.

This vest is a surprisingly versatile weight for cycling. I'm in the SF Bay Area. I've comfortably worn it unzipped up a long climb on 75˚F day, and then zipped it up for the descent. It fits close to the body and the pockets feel very secure. The double zipper is a great feature as well. For a warmer climate, like CA, this can be worn year round. My suggestions: (1) The zipped pocket is a great idea, but it sits in the middle of the vest, leaving whatever I put in it resting on my backbone. In another iteration of this vest, I'd put the zipped pocket on either the left or right side of the vest. (2) I love the snug fit, but the armholes are VERY snug. It doesn't cut off circulation, so doesn't **** my vibe on the bike. But the vest would be more versatile if the armholes were a tad more forgiving. For example, this would be an awesome vest for XC skiing. However, the arm constriction would be uncomfortable in any sport where I would have to move my arms (i.e. everything other than cycling).
Great fit. Cozy and stylish. Everything you want in a vest.
The double zipper allows me to regulate temperature all day without having to remove this layer of clothing - I love it!
