Lightweight, packable and water-resistant insulation

Long-distance riders often encounter a wide range of conditions, so a lightweight layer that is both warm and packable is essential. The Insulated Brevet Gilet provides exceptional warmth, while highly breathable Polartec Alpha insulation ensures you won’t overheat during harder efforts.

The gilet features reflective detailing for visibility, and a water-shedding DWR (durable water repellent) coating for added protection in rain showers. Thanks to the hydrophobic properties of the Polartec Alpha insulation, the gilet wont saturate in the same way that natural down insulation will, and is quick drying. Mesh side panels stretch to fit over full pockets and a zip placket keeps out the wind, and when not in use, the gilet rolls into an elasticated loop at the neck to stay tightly stored. Please note that the two-way zip included on this product at launch has been replaced by a standard zip.

Karen Whittier, product manager for insulation at Polartec, explains the science behind Polartec Alpha:

Polartec Alpha was engineered as an active insulation to regulate core body temperatures during both dynamic and static activities. This ‘adaptive’ breathability helps eliminate the need for shedding or adding layers while on the move, making it ideal for cycling.

By keeping moisture vapour moving freely through the fabric, it increases overall air exchange and drastically speeds up dry times, providing thermal regulated comfort. Polartec Alpha is also highly compressible, made with a stable core… that prevents ‘fibre migration’ to keep a uniform consistency, even after heavy wear and repeated laundering.

FEATURES

  • Quick drying and hydrophobic Polartec Alpha insulation
  • Self-storing into band at neck
  • DWR (durable water repellent) coating
  • Wind resistant fabric
  • Dropped rear hem for added protection
  • Reflective detailing throughout

  • 100% Nylon

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really useful gilet After borrowing my son's gilet, I decided to buy my own and am so glad that I did. It's lightweight and compact but warm and windproof. really useful on Spring and cool Summer rides. I also use it for golf and hiking. A great investment!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favourite gilet My favourite gilet. It's nice a light and can be worn must of the year depending on jersey and jackets underneath. The front and back panels work brilliant with the polar tec keeping the chill out. While the mesh sides let the heat out. I did find the sizing on the big side compare to the other ranges tho.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid, go-to gear for cool temperature rides Purchase in the last month, great with arm warmers in 2-10 degree weather. Packs down into jersey pocket with nifty elastic loop. Cozy on those cool start mornings, and I can keep it on with comfort, whereas core jacket I end up unzipping all the time. Great piece of gear.

The medium in the pro range is perfect for me, I have small for the city range and borderline small-medium for the classic range. Which size do you recommend for this gilet?

Asked by: Txema
The Medium fit should be a good fit. This Garment has a more relaxed fitting then the Pro Team Range and is more in line wit the Classic Range.

Hi, I'm looking for a gilet to accompany a lightweight jersey when cycling early morning in spring when temps are about 10-15 degrees- would you suggest insulated or standard gilet? 

Asked by: Nick101
As we all regulate temperature differently it is hard to advice on the temperature range for individuals and differing exertion levels will also affect its properties. For cooler temperatures we would certainly recommend the insulated Gilet as it does provide extra protection from the outside elements.

If worn in heavy rain, will the insulation still provide warmth?

Asked by: Bugs
Hi, this gilet is not intended for use as an outer layer in heavy rain. It is water-resistant and Polartec Alpha is one of the quickest drying insulation materials available.

I have a brevet ladies windstopper jacket size med which is a perfect fit . What size would I need in the brevet insulated gilet?

Asked by: Helen 51
Hi, this gilet has a snug fit but this is not a women's specific product and so you may need to size down one size. As always, we do have a free 90 day returns policy if needed.

How does the brevet insulated gilet compare to the woman's rapha gilet in terms of fit in the hip and waist? As far as chest measure a medium insulated gilet is apparently equal to a large woman's. Just want to make sure I get sizing correct.

Asked by: lady_colnago
Hi, the Brevet Insulated Gilet has a straighter fit that does not come in as much at the waist and out at the hips like the Women's Rapha Gilet.

Does this vest still have the two way zip that has caused issues on other gilets such as the pro team lightweight?

How does the insulation compare to Primaloft when it comes to water resistence? And how water resistant is the outer fabric/seems? 

Asked by: AC84
Hi, this insulation has better moisture transfer and is faster drying than Primaloft. The outer fabric is wind, but not water resistant. However, it does have a DWR finish to provide a degree of water resistance. Polartec Alpha has great breath ability, and this gilet's functionality would be defeated by the use of a laminate waterproof fabric.
