Gibraltar Vest - Black
Our lightweight solution for outerwear, this vest protects you from the elements and then folds up neatly to easily stow in a pocket when you're ready to take it off.
I dont know what Eliel does or what fabric they use, but I'm pretty sure it's made of magic. When I pulled it out of the package I was a little skeptical because of how thin and light it was (I was looking to add some warmth to my winter rides). It did not disappoint. The zippers are awesome, the wind protection is phenomenal, and it somehow adds warmth for such a thin material. Like I said, its magic.
This is a light vest and fits comfortably, but is surprisingly efficient at trapping body heat and keeping me warm. I’ve been wearing it with a non-insulated short or long sleeve jersey on rides below 60 or with with a thermal jersey on rides below 50F. The small fits well around my waist (28”) and chest (37”) and packs down nicely. Would recommend!
This is the best vest I own for several reasons. It is light weight and packs easily into a jersey pocket and it keeps me warm in the front with good back ventilation. The sizing is race fit, however. I am a true medium and I ordered a large to fit over winter jerseys. I may purchase the medium to be worn over a race fit jersey for Spring, Summer and Fall. If you like your clothing "relaxed" fit, I would recommend sizing up otherwise true to size if you are race fit and like it to fit like a glove.
This Gibralter Vest is my go-to for our Deep South fall/winter rides. Literally can pack up in a pocket or stuff under a jersey if things heat up. The fabric is perfect for keeping those cool temps at bay while heading into a cold north wind, and breaths well when the sweating starts... Great product!
I've owned literally dozens of vests. I'm 6'1" and around 150lbs ~70kg's and this is literally perfect - it also has just the right amount of stretch for a really clean, sleek look!
