Excellent gillet

Really excellent gillet, i am 1m93 and 78kg and L fitted me great. Stretches and is slim fit. Brilliant.

Size up

Good value understated gilet. I'm a 5'7, 38 inch chest and 33 inch waist and a Medium in Triban jerseys. I had to get a Large in this Van Rysel gilet, which fits perfect, snug but not restricting. The Medium was way to tight and suited for a leaner cyclist. Size up!

Exactly what was needed

Good fit, light weight, good wind protection and better than expected protection against light rain.

Needs pockets/to access them

Annoying that cycling clothing is sized for cyclists, ie people who can't do a pull up, that said it's As expected, the only thing that's surprising is you can't get to your pockets and their isn't another for a gel/banana

Nice gilet

Worn this loads over the summer as the nights close in to stop the chills. Love that the arm holes are not excessive and don’t flap

Baggy at the arms

Great material and fit in the body but too loose with no elastic on the arm openings so will just allow the air to flow in and flap

Absolutely spot on

After looking at lots of reviews elsewhere and here I decided to give this Gillet a try. Absolutely lovely piece of kit and the grey and black colouring online doesn’t do it justice. Looks absolutely stunning and better than most others at a fraction of the price. Wore it last weekend on a cold and windy ride but the weather warmed up quickly so I had to remove the top and pack it into a rear jersey pocket. Fantastic fit that I initially thought was a little tight around the armpit but once on the bike in riding position it was so comfortable. The fleece lined collar certainly keeps you cosy I’m 6ft and around 79kg with a 106ish Cm chest so I ordered a L and an XL. Opted for the XL and returned the other. Super quick notification that Decathlon he’d received it and money returned to my account within three days. So, if you’re looking for a classy and packable Gillet then this is the one you want.

Nice but size is too small

I ordered an XL, but its very tight. I am returning for a XXL.

Excellent spring/autumn gilet

First ride with the vest on turned wet and windy on the return leg, and I was really grateful that I had it on - it kept me warm and dry in typical British changeable weather. Is a bit loose around the shoulders, but I suspect that's down to me, and as a big lad the cut is not as extreme as some others. All round excellence, and at a bargain price.

Great item

Seems expensive at first but this Gilet is excellent it's a great tight fit at large I am 14 Stone. It is so light and packs down to slip into your back jersey pocket so easy. Real wind stopping performer. I can see why FDJ use them. Great item.

Everything it says it is

Excellent tight fitting performance gilet. Keeps the wind (and some rain) off and the mesh back helps with heat dispersal.

Additional Product Information


Main fabric

  • 100% Polyester cationic


  • 94% Polyester cationic
  • 6% Spandex

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.


To determine whether a fabric is breathable, we measure its evaporative resistance (test based on standard ISO 11092). The lower its resistance, the more the fabric will let water vapor produced by the body escape, and therefore the more breathable it is. For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric.


Waterproofing is a fabric's ability to prevent rain water from passing through. A fabric's water-repellency is its ability to make water bead and/or run along its surface. The garment soaks up little or no moisture, dries more quickly, and doesn't become heavier. Water-repellency can also make it more difficult for its outer surface to become dirty. Water-repellency is obtained by applying a treatment to the fabric's external surface.

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 from entering the garment and thus reduces the loss of heat.

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.
