A breathable, lightweight, windproof and packable gilet is an essential item in any cyclist's drawer to combat changeable and cooler conditions.

In simple terms, a gilet (pronounced gee-lay) is a sleeveless, lightweight jacket, usually made from a windproof fabric. If changeable conditions look like they will affect your ride, a gilet (in addition to a pair of arm warmers and knee warmers) can offer some great protection from the elements, and if it happens to warm up, can be easily stored in a rear jersey pocket.

The fabric used on this product is in itself very interesting.  Made in Italy, this gilet uses two fabric layer bonded together for the best possible performance.  The black outer layer being composed of a polyester that's had a water repellent treatment and the inner, called ZeroWind, which is a hydrophilic membrane that has excellent thermo-regulating properties and as well as breathability.
