Like the Pakajak, the Pakagilet is made from lightweight, windproof and showerproof Ripstop fabric with excellent breathability. Additionally, the back mesh panel ensures a regulated body climate. The cycling specific construction with a dropped tail offers a great fit and protects the lower back from cold drafts. Elasticated arm holes, rear neck and hem keep the vest in place. Thanks to the clever rear pocket access you can reach any cycling essentials in your jersey pocket quickly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LORR Nice light weight gillet
Keeps you a bit warmer when wet and/or windy, or on slightly chillier mornings in the spring/summer. Folds away compactly to fit into a cycle jersey pocket.
Just what i was looking for!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Perfect, small packing...
I have been looking for a good gilet for ages now. This one is perfect! Packs incredibly small into its own bag, so very easy to carry in a pocket. The material is very lightweight and thin - but it does seem very well manufactured and fairly tough. I only use it for road biking, I wouldn't use it mountain biking where it could get snagged...
There are a few reflective elements built in for safety, there is a large mesh panel on the back for ventilation and there is a large slot in the back so you can reach inside to your jersey pockets.
I think it is pretty stylish looking. I have the black.
With regards to sizing; I am a well-built 6'4" and the XXL is an "athletic" fit, shall we say? For comparison, an XXL Endura Hummvee jersey is a relaxed fit on me. The gilet isn't tight, but snug. Which is perfect.
I am tempted to buy another one, I am very impressed!
