Great gilet - keeps the wind or a light shower off and looks pretty smart - been through the wash several times now with no issues.

The zip feels a little flimsy and I'd like to see some rear pockets ideally - preferably designed so you could pack the gilet into one of them, but it all works well and does actually pack down small enough to fit in your Jersey pocket.

Recommended for those wanting a reasonably stylish gilet on a budget.

I bought this to take to Mallorca - didnt end up using it there but have used it many times in the UK when I looks like rain or a bit chilly. It is very lightweight but great to either take along or wear. I'm female and it is perfect for me except a little tight around the waist so rides up a bit but generally I am very pleased with it.

Light and stylish- some users complained of this being too light but isn't cycle wear designed to be as light as possible!? This is not rain gear! I am a big guy and the XXL fits me perfect (36 Waist). This is exactly what I was looking for- a lightweight stylish additional layer to put on over my cycle jersey when I need it- very good quality zip and durable material- recommended :)

it is a very snug fit but as I'm aiming to lost weight I'm hoping some space will appear soon. It fits nice but I can imagine the base will ride up when riding as it grips around the mid section - I was hoping to find one that was slightly longer around the mid section and maybe had no elastic there.

After purchasing a pair of shorts of the same brand, I decided to see what else they had to offer as I was very impressed with the shorts.

This gilet is made from a very lightweight material, it does well at keeping off wind and locking in warmth. The micro mesh back also helps to wick away any excess heat and it seems to do its job well. Theres aren't any pockets on the back, but it being a full mesh back this is to be expected and I'd rather sacrifice a pocket for breathability anyway, that's what my jersey is for.

The packaway inner bag is a nice touch, which brings the size of the gilet down, it's really lightweight and I tend to carry it around in a jersey pocket without even realising its there.

Recommended!

Great gilet styling and fit but after 4th use zip has broken at the bottom - bought as present from my wishlist and disappointed with the quality.

Very light weight. Good for summer and spring. Like the mash back to keep cool. Will fit into jersey pocket easily. Good for the price.

Buy larger than you normally would. For example I'm a xl whereas usually I'm an L. Good gilet though for a very reasonable price.
