An insulating and extremely lightweight layer for cooler rides.

Brevet Insulated GiletSEK1,130.00

Please select an item above

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 Please note that the two-way zip included on this product at launch has been replaced by a standard zip.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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 100% most versatile This is probably the most versatile piece of gear I own. This makes your normal jerseys last into the cold winter and is perfect for those early spring training sessions where you will be shedding layers as the ride progresses. So warm without being a sweatbox.

I wear a large classic long sleeve jersey but mainly for length (thin 6ft 5). Which size of the gilet would fit me best. 

Asked by: Charles Carl
We suggest the same size that you normally wear as the Brevet shares the same fit as our Classic Jerseys

If I wear a small classic jersey (fits like a race fit) as I have a 37in chest, what size would you recommend for the gilet?

Asked by: dan70
You should fit a medium in this Gilet. We do have a 90 day returns policy should the garment not meet with your specifications.

What is the sizing for women?

Asked by: Esther1989
If you were to purchase this item, an appropriate size would be based on the upper body measurement. If you are a Classic Medium, we would suggest a Medium of this item so it fits across the shoulders
