Ultra light sleeveless windbreaker (men-lg)

Works as advertised. Packable for back jersey pocket. Blocks wind well. Vents well in back. Used on LA coast temp 58-60. Take off when warmed up and temp above 62. Size (XL, 5’11” 170lbs 41”chest)


Stretchy, slim, and does the job

Good fit and looks great

This product provide a good fit. I went a size down to get a very close fit as I don't like my clothing flapping about when riding. The rear has a poke through that you can access your jersey pockets. Breathable mesh at the back is very good. The vest is very light weight.

Excellent piece of cycling kit

Excellent piece of kit Great price for a packable gilet. Fit is perfect, akin to a club fit bike jersey. The stretchy side panels keep it snug to prevent flapping in the wind. Arm openings are on the small side which works for me (esp when worn with a jersey) but I could see being an issue for others. The slash to access the jersey pockets is okay, I can get to the middle pocket easily but the outside ones are awkward. Packs into itself nicely, lightweight and very windproof and warm when riding. Easily fits into a jersey pocket and can be unfurled one handed on the bike. Could use more reflective elements and I’d like it in more colours but I really like this gilet even when compared to more expensive options.

Excellent Gilet

I have the matching windstopper and did not hesitate to buy this when I saw it. Great Gilet.

Value for money

Feels extremely lightweight but surprisingly warm on those chilly commutes. Great value for money I fully recommend. Get a size up from your normal jersey/Gilet

Good gilet at a fair price, worn on a cold descent keeps your core toasty. Would be even better in a brighter, not not hi-viz, colour.

Great lightweight gilet

This gilet is very lightweight and comfortable to wear. It's windproof which is just what you need for early starts or late finishes. Don't let this fabric fool you into thinking this product isn't tough. It's awesome. Packs down into its own concealed pocket for storage and stuffing into your jersey pocket when not using it.

Perfect for spring and autumn cycles

This lightweight windproof gilet is perfect for Spring or Autumn when it's cold when you first go out, then warms up as the ride progresses - you can scrunch it up and it fits in your back pocket. It has a large 'flap' at the back that means you can easily get into your cycle top pockets without any faffing about. For the price it is excellent - you'd pay x3 the amount for one of the main cycling brands and the quality is fantastic. This is highly recommended

Top Quality Pro Look and feel.

Love this, its versatile and looks good. Fits very well, snug enough and has good venting on the back. Not much else to say. It is just very good.

Nice bit of kit

I’m 5.10 and 90kg. Stocky. XL fitted a treat. Very light and packdownable (just made up a new word!). Mainly stored in back pocket but comes out at cafe stops as I get cold standing around. Love it. Will buy again.

Fits well. Keeps the wind off and the core warm. Easy access to cycling top pockets through the back flap. Sits tight and doesn't move during use.

Perfect protection in cool weather!

Cool temperatures, wind that's a bit too chilly, or a hill descent? There are many times when riding that your jersey might not be quite enough. Our ultralight windproof jacket has been designed and tested based on just these issues. Designed to work in the many different conditions you can encounter on a ride, your ultralight windproof jacket stores easily in your jersey pocket using its ultra-compact fold-up pouch.

Windproof and water-repellent!

The "DEGREE" component is windproof, which gives our ultralight windproof gilet optimal protection against wind and chills. The DEGREE component was also chosen by our engineers for its ability to handle a water-repellent treatment. So in addition to protecting from the wind, this ultralight gilet will protect your torso from light moisture.


Beyond its windproof and water-repellent properties, the "DEGREE" component was also chosen because it is among the most lightweight materials on the market. Along with its compact pouch for folding and storing, these technical choices make this ultralight gilet one of the most compact and lightweight windproof jackets on the market today.

Regular fit

Close-fitting and comfortable, enjoy a windproof gilet whose sizing strikes the perfect balance between aerodynamics and comfort.

Design choices that make a difference

- Ventilation: Back entirely made of mesh fabric for excellent breathability - Accessible pocket: back flap for very easy access to the jersey's pocket. - Storage: Built-in compacting pocket - Comfort: Cover for the zipper at the top of the closure to prevent chafing on your neck from the zipper - Protection: interior tab along the zipper to prevent air from entering through the zipper. - Support: elastic at the waist and wrists for excellent support.

Technical specifications

- 4 mm YKK COIL zipper, reverse open-end cord stopper.
