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.

Stretchy, slim, and does the job


Had the gillet a few months now and its excellent. Good quality and fits really well. Used every week in autumn and no issues at all

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.

Windbreaker Gilet

Excellent product that is sized correctly and matches up very well against much higher priced “branded” products. Decathlon really do a great job with quality, performance and value.

Great gilet

I could not be more satisfied. Well made, light, folds up small and does a great job of keeping the wind at bay. Compares favourably with much more expensive gilets.

A brilliant gilet!

I recently purchased this along with the RC 500 Ultralight Windproof Jacket for a cycling holiday and it is, quite simply, excellent. The stretch fit is great, it out performs much more expensive kit and offers subtle and understated branding. It packs down nice and small into its own pouch, slipping easily into a jersey pocket and I wore it over a base layer, jersey and arm warmers for the cold start/end of the day and when descending mountains. Brilliant!

Need to have measurements...

My only concern about the online/website is there are no measurements on the items. Yes,there are selection of sizes but no measurements. I have addressed this to the staff when I collected the item and he can not find it either! I cannot fault the product for what it is priced but I could buy more products online if there are measurements!

Muy práctico, protege bien del viento y se pliega

Se pliega en un bolsillo interior y ocupa muy poco. Protege bien del viento y añade una capa adicional en los días fríos, aunque no es térmico. Lo malo es que las costuras no son de la mejor calidad y hay hilos sueltos por varios sitios, veremos si dura.

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.
