Very light but good fit

This is exactly as described. Lightweight, good for light/moderate wind protection. Best for temperatures above 10-12C. Rolls up easily to go in a back pocket while cycling.

Good value

Well made and comfortable vest for a very competitive price. Fits well and is light.

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.

Too small, do Decathlon hate big cyclists?

I bought the 2XL because I am somewhat overweight, although not really obese. Nevertheless this gilet is both too tight around the middle, and too short. That would be fine if they produced sizes above 2XL but apparently Decathlon don't care about the bigger cyclist.

Highly desirable kit

Packs down into a small pouch. Improves visibility to other road users as well as being a useful windbreaker

Gilet for 3-seasons

Great buy at a bargain price. Stretchy, close-fitting with access to jersey pockets. Why pay premium price when this does exactly what you need it to do?

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.

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.
