For extra weather protection without performance compromise the oneten Pioggia vest is a super light and packable waterproof cycle gilet.
There’s no such thing as bad weather, goes the old saying – only the wrong clothes. Offering the same great features as the Pioggia shell, the Pioggia vest is designed for riders who prefer the flexilibity, light weight and packability of a sleeveless garment but demand superior protection for their core.
Performance under pressure
Designed to keep you dry and comfortable right through the worst of weather conditions, the Pioggia vest features:
Waterproof and windproof eVent main body fabric for ultimate weather protection, with a superlight polyamide shell.
Ultra-breathable PTFE membrane to ensure optimum moisture management, preventing sweat build-up next to the skin
Open mesh back for additional breathability and improved internal air flow.
Waterproof RiRi front zipper, meaning no need for additional storm flaps.
Fold-down tail for extra protection from road spray.
Cut for comfort
Protection from the elements need not mean compromise on fit and performance. Like all oneten technical garments the Pioggia vest is cut with the specifics of cycling in mind, meaning a fit tailored to the on-bike torso position.
We’ve also added stretch mesh side panels for improved flexibility and fit; a fold-down tail secured by lightweight press studs to keep it out of the way when not needed; and a three-position adjustable collar to accommodate different rider shapes or layered clothing configurations.
On the practical side of things, the Pioggia vest also features minimal seaming and direct-print internal labels to prevent chafing and irritation, a custom textured zip pull for ease of use with gloved hands and custom reflective tabs for excellent low-light visibility.
Who is it for?
Super light and packable for easy storage in a jersey pocket or commuter’s pannier, the oneten Pioggia vest will appeal to any rider who demands protection from the elements but values the advantages of a sleeveless option.
Worn with the oneten Intimo base layer and a suitable mid-layer such as the Primavera long-sleeve jersey, the Pioggia shell will keep you riding through the worst of weather.

Rated 4 out of 5 by HealyLM GREAT VALUE AND PRODUCT
At an unbeatable price this is a brilliant piece of kit. Light and breathable enough to wear all the time in Ireland and a real life saver when the temperature drops. Might not be worth it at the full price but at E30 its a steal.
