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!
