Packable wind vest

The Pro Team Lightweight Vest is a thin outer layer that can be worn all year round. Extremely lightweight, it can pack down to be stored in a jersey pocket until a cold descent or as the sun drops.

Upgraded for 2017 and made of a new fabric which offers greater stretch for an improved fit. More reflective elements have been included on the vest this year: down the side seam on either side, on the seams of the shoulders and a logo on the back rear of the vest. The two-way VISLON® zip, allowing you to unzip from the bottom for easy access to your jersey pockets, is also improved. As with all Pro Team products, everything about this cycling vest is designed with performance and comfort in mind: a mesh fabric on the inner collar and perforated holes on the neck help you avoid overheating and the directly applied silicon on the front hem helps keep the vest in place during hard rides.

Whether worn during warm-ups, early morning starts, or as a last resort backup if the weather suddenly changes, the Pro Team Lightweight Vest has your back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight Needed a vest on the light side. A perfect vest for a cool summer morning, yet ideal for a quick warm up. Folds up great. Got many compliments on the look to boot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Snug and super light Larger than I expected for a proteam item, so I had to return the L which was surprisingly loose. The M is perfect (M is normal size in non-pro-team items

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the best Perfect for very early morning summer rides. Super lightweight and a near perfect fit for me (5'11'' 74kg). Excellent fabric and features, love the two way zip to flare the bottom of the gilet, plus little features that show of the jersey underneath, ie mesh back. Plus very discrete logos - love it. Simply the best thing I have bought form Rapha to date!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nearly perfect Fit is great , thought i had finally found a gilet that doesn't flap around the shoulders but alas it does when descending. Seems to be a common fault on lightweight gilets I have tried. Very well made product with some quality details , if the mesh back extended a fraction more up to the shoulders it would stop the flapping I reckon and earn 5 stars

Hi there, What's the difference between this 7 the 'Classic Gilet II'? Cheers

Asked by: WoodT
Hi, the Pro Team Lightweight Gilet is thin, lightweight, easy to pack and store in a jersey pocket and has a full mesh back for exertion. The Classic Gilet II is similar but it is also more resistant to Wind and water and it only has one mesh stripe down the back, so technically a bit warmer.

Hi, will this gilet fit fine over a Classic or Brevet Jersey in the same size? I am a Size S. thanks

Asked by: Nugget
Hi, please refer to the size guide as far as possible. Given this gilet has a stretchy mesh back we would suggest you try a Small and should you need to exchange, we have a 90 days return period.

Is the pro team lightweight gilet windproof? i.e. will it be as effective for descents as the Rapha gilet?

Asked by: agent cooper
This Gilet is not in itself Windproof but is designed to be extremely lightweight and to be used in cooler climates, including descents.

Hello what are the differences between this and the brevet gilet?

Asked by: My Name is Thor
Hi, the Brevet Gilet has side mesh panels and a top mesh panel at the back for breathability, it also has enhanced hi-vis and a more relaxed fit. The Pro Team Lightweight Gilet is extremely lightweight so it can pack down easily into a jersey pocket, has a full mesh back for breathability and has more of a race fit.
