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

Topp Weste

Tolle Weste deckt super den Bereich zwischen Jacke an und nur Trikot ab. Von der Größe war ich eher überrascht. Normalerweise trage ich M, bei Van Rysel erfahrungsgemäß L, aber bei der Weste hätte es auch die M getan.

Gut Weste, aber...

Ich habe die Weste seit September 2021 regelmäßig ca. 5 mal die Woche in Benutzung zusammen mit einen Langen Trikot und und Langen Unterhemd auch noch bis 0 Crad. Leider ist Anfang Februar nach ca 3000 Km der kleine Bügel am Reißverschluss abgebrochen, sodass ich mit etwas Draht und Schrumpfschlauch nachbessern musste unm die Weste auch beim Fahren gut öffnen zu können. Insgesamt scheint mir der Reißverschluss etwas zu fein zu sein. Ansonsten ist die West von der Passform und vom Windschutz her top. Ohne den Defekt am Reißverschluss würde es 5 Sterne geben. Grüße Thomas

Guter Schnitt & Funktion, fummeliger Reißverschluß

Passform/Schnitt ist top, die Funktion meiner Meinung nach ebenfalls sehr gut. Der vorderseitige Stoff (oder Membran) isoliert vermultich noch etwas besser als ein Material das lediglich winddicht ist. Am Rücken ist man froh, dass das Mesh einen Teil der Feuchtigkeit raus lässt - top. Leider ist aber der Reißverschluss etwas fummelig (das Einfädeln des Verschlusses), dadurch ist es mühsam, die Weste während der Fahrt anzuziehen und zu schließen. Vielleicht wäre auch ein Two-Way-Zip für zukünftige Modelle keine schlechte Idee..

Sehr gute Windweste

Weste am Donnerstag bestellt, am Samstagmorgen war sie schon da. Größe nach der Empfehlung von Decathlon genommen. Bin 185 cm und wiege 79 kg. Größe M passt mir sehr gut da ich es lieber enger trage. Heute dann sofort erst Ausfahrt mit Oslo Baselaser warm, Gore Bike Wintertrikot und die Weste von Decathlon als Windschutz. Heute im Sauerland schön aber nur 1 Grad. Die Weste ist wirklich winddicht und hält den Oberkörper warm. Lasst sich auch gut in der Rückentasche verstauen. Daher von mir 5 Sterne!

2 Nummern zu klein nach Größentabelle

habe alle Radsport-Kleidung in Größe M - aber hier fällt die Größe viel zu klein aus und ist dadurch unter den Armen sehr unangenehm eng.

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.
