Perfect Gilet

This gilet compacts so well in either your jersey pocket or small saddle bag, that it now always travels with me. Perfect for early morning starts.

A greatgilet

A great gilet as additional layer for the changeable conditions in spring and autumn, keeps you warm and fits nicely over a wind or thermal jersey. At only £35 it certainty rivals similar offerings from premium brands.

Great Bit of Kit

Really nice gilet for the varied weather patterns we seem to be experiencing in the north of England. High quality material with plenty of storage pockets. Ventilation is very good at the rear with the mesh but still helps to keep you warm. Only small down side would be the neck seems a little larger than expected compared to the rest of the sizing but not massively. I would highly recommend this.

Nice and snug

Light gilet. Nice and snug. Tried instore as I'm between small and medium. If you are too, go for the medium so it's not too tight.

Good item

Really good gillet but the 2020 model was better. I am slim 1m93 and 78kg and Medium is OK for me as with a tight fit. (Large was baggy). Keeps you warm is it is fairly thick on the front but still folds up fairly small.

Great gilet

I can highly recommend this. Keeps the wind off and a good fit as expected. Having the three back outer pockets is a bonus as the flap on my other ones to access pockets underneath can be tricky.

Opravdová spokojenost. Skvěle sedí i střihově. Mám 182 a 82kg. L je fajn.


Dobře sedí, příjemné

Top Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis

Funktion, Qualität und Optik können vollkommen überzeugen. Bin 189 groß und 95 kg schwer, XXL passt wunderbar, sitzt nicht zu eng. Für die Übergangszeit und Abfahrten aus Höhenlagen ein idealer Begleiter.

Einfache Weste, fällt riesig aus

Der Größenberater hat L ausgewiesen, selbst M (1,84m, 82Kg) sitzt weit. Eher schwere, einfache Weste. Stoff ähnlich softshell. Riesen Packmaß. Super: Netzrücken, drei Tachen am Rücken. Für das Geld zum MTB-fahren i.o.

Ich habe diese Weste in M (meine normale Größe) Ich trage sie über einem Unterhemd und einem Langarmtrikot und sie passt - sie ist renntauglich, also sitzt sie eng, aber lassen Sie mich Ihnen sagen, dass ich in keiner Weise ein dünner Radprofi bin! :) Es ist keine Weste zum Aufbewahren, falls es kalt wird, sondern eine für den Anfang, obwohl Sie sie in eine Gesäßtasche stecken können, wenn es zu heiß wird. Dinge, die man beachten muss - kein Doppelreißverschluss - Unterwegs schwer zu schließen - enge Race-Passform Insgesamt ist es warm, hält den Wind ab, sieht stylisch aus und hat eine Qualität von etwas viel teurerem.

What is a "mesh" fabric?

Mesh fabric is thinner, lighter and more ventilated than cotton, or polyester. This breathable fabric wicks away perspiration more quickly.

Why windproof?

When cycling, your speed greatly increases the sensation of cold. An outdoor temperature of 50°F will feel like 45°F when cycling at 15 mph. A windproof barrier helps prevent air entry, subsequently reducing heat loss.

Care tips

Machine wash at 86°F. Synthetics cycle. Turn the article inside out. Use a minimal amount of laundry detergent. Do not use fabric softener. Line-dry in a warm, ventilated area. Do not tumble dry. Do not dry-clean. Do not bleach. Do not place on a heater to dry.

Product tests

Our team of product designers based at the B'Twin Village in Lille is continuously working to make cycling more comfortable for our users. Our obsession is to create products that meet the specific cycling needs of our users and eliminate hindrances to a good cycling experience. We then test our products in the field, as we are convinced that only by subjecting them to real-world conditions, like the ones you experience on your bike, can we continuously improve our products.
