Description

Long-distance riders often encounter a wide range of conditions, so a lightweight layer that is both warm and packable is essential. The Brevet Insulated Gilet provides exceptional warmth, without compromising on weight or packability.

With Polartec Alpha insulation front and back, the gilet is at once insulating and breathable, ensuring your core stays warm without overheating during tougher efforts. There are reflective details 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 won’t saturate in the same way that natural down insulation will, and is quick drying too. Mesh side panels stretch to fit over full pockets while a two-way zip allows you to open the gilet from the top or the bottom. When not in use, the gilet rolls into an elasticated loop at the neck to stay tightly stored.

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

“[The fabric] 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 dramatically 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.”
