Palomar Vest - Black
A superior piece of outerwear to keep any rider prepared for the elements. Wind protection, layered warmth, and additional storage pockets provide ideal utility for a long day in the saddle.
I bought this a few days before LoToJa, a 200 mile race in northern Utah and southern Wyoming. I didn’t want anything bulky and didn’t want to bring a full jacket. It poured rain for the first 2 hours. Not only did this vest keep me warm during the rain, it also helped keep my chest and back more dry than the rest of my body.
Living in Carpinteria CA the weathers basically perfect all the time. We joke that if its 65 its too cold and 75 is too hot. The Polomar fits the bill perfectly! We do have some cold starts in the winter but the thing I like about this vest is you never have to take it off. Just unzip from the bottom and you're right back in the comfort zone.
Overall, it has been good. I must say I prefer 3 back pouches than just 2 big. Its easier to put things when you have 3. Also, I think that the vest is a bit tight in low part of the armpit. Beside that, awesome vest.
