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.

  • Extremely lightweight fabric (Medium size: 76g)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lightweight vest. Great vest. My XL easily fits in a back pocket of one of may many rapha jerseys. It does flap like other have mentioned. It does this because the piece stretches and moves in all directions. That means that both the outer and inner shoulder " holes " have stretch material. As you move around on the bike that area is NEVER gonna lay flap. Secondly, the material is supper light weight. So, the material ends up bunching up a bit on each shoulder area and flaps because of lightweight material. Highly recommended.

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 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 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.
