Rated 5 out of 5 by roadrich Funkier Gilet
I recently purchased this gilet looking for a reasonable quality gilet for a modest price , I think that the Funkier gilet scores well on both points having recently used it in the French Alps on a cycling holiday. It is light and easily folds up small enough to place in rear pocket of a jersey, the mesh back allows some of the heat to escape meaning it is not to sweaty to wear but it is not Gore-tex, therefore expect some moisture inside the gilet to build up when pressing hard. The one small grumble was that the zip did catch a couple of times when I tried to unzip the jacket while riding. I normally wear medium size but had to go up to a large for this gilet as they do come up on the smaller side.

Very light, keeps the wind out of the front and breathes on the back.
Also reflective and has lasted at least a couple of years.
This is the second one I've had and what a Bargain!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by M47K0 Very bad quality
Gilet runs very small. Buy at least one size up.
Size chart is way off.
I was very disappointed with quality. It's very wide around neck.
Stitching is very bad. Zip constantly gets stuck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChrisL Great lightweight gilet to keep the chill off
Really like the vented back, very lightweight so you hardly know you are wearing it until you descend. It keeps the chill off on an early morning

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Not a bad piece of kit
I wanted a light, snug-fitting gilet that I could use for running and cycling: something that I wouldn't mind carrying around "just in case". Pretty pleased with this - it's light enough, packs down into the inverted zip pocket, and is a close fit over both summer cycling wear and running gear. It's not really thick enough for winter use, or roomy enough to go over thicker layers of clothing. There is a baffle behind the zip which frequently gets caught in the zip going up or down - a nuisance until you develop the right technique. Still recommend it though.
