Ultra-packable wind vest

For riders who like to stay as bulk-free as possible during a fast ride, the Pro Team Lightweight Gilet is an extremely lightweight outer layer for use in spring and autumn conditions. Despite weighing only 76g, and easily fitting in a rear pocket, the garment provides a vital defence against cold winds or a drop in temperature. Originally designed for use by Team Sky’s cyclists during warm-ups, early-morning starts, or as a last-resort back-up if the weather suddenly changed, the gilet is shaped to suit an aggressive, in-the-drops riding position. A low-friction zip with oversized puller makes taking it on or off very easy, and a mesh-lined collar and rear panel prevents clamminess and allows for temperature regulation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A 'need to have' for every cyclist Summer is over. This means that weather is becoming colder and that we offen start cycling when it's a bit dark. This gilet is the solutions for these problems. Wear this gilet and you are seen by everyone and you are protected against the cold weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Near perfect lightweight gilet. Bought this as I have been happy with the Pro Team line and wanted a light, trim, and pack-able vest for transition season. Days that I only need it early on, then pack away for day, or can don and doff as I need. The gilet is an excellent and trim fit with a full stretch back panel. Breathes well posterior because of this and packs smaller too. The fit is shorter in front and back compared to Brevet as it's a race fit. I have used several times and like to leave it on more than take it off. Have never been a Hi-Vis guy but the chartreuse is a stylish way to pull it off and can work with a variety of jersey colors. Shoulders do flap a bit on descents and maybe the only mark against it so far. Light material can do this and i'm actually surprised as the brevet flaps less. Not enough to loose a star though. The single zipper is great and locks if pulled down, and can be unlocked if in the up position. This allows opening w/o using zipper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go to Gilet I used to ride with Jersey / Jacket but was often either too warm or too cold, and I hate carrying kit or being layered up then too hot. This Gilet bridges the gap perfectly, it's become my 'go-to' piece of kit through Autumn, to a point where I'm unsure what I did without it. Holds off wind perfectly, breathable at the back. Only annoying element is it could do with one external pocket either on the back or front just to you can grab phone / food mid ride. Other than that perfect piece of kit and worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish and functional Never to hot, works really well, love the mesh back and wind resistance of the front.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Weight and Highly Visible The weight and visibility are great. I have a pink one with a two-way zipper - and for some reason this one did not have one which is too bad. Two way zippers allow for easier retrieval from jersey pockets as the PT vest does not have pockets. My only other criticism is that the shoulders flap - not sure if that is a issue that can be viewed in future generations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent fit and performance This is a very versitle piece of kit. The fit is perfect for fast pace riding and very light. The stretchy back is a great addition and keeps everything in my pockets really tightly. I strongly recommend this for cooler weather.

Did you (please) get rid of the zipper at the bottom this year?

Asked by: Zipp
Hi, this season's gilet only has a single zip.
