The Galaxie Wind Vest is ultra sleek and made for versatility.
The gloss black, super light fabric is fully wind resistant and water repellent, but light enough to pack easily into a jersey pocket. It features extra-deep rear pockets perfect for stowing jackets and other large items, making it an key layering piece for longer rides with varying temperatures.

You might even long for chilly mornings so you’ll have an excuse to work it into your rotation.

Size & Fit
I bought this vest about a year and a half ago and it has become my favorite piece of cycling apparel. The cut and style is very flattering and construction is very durable. This vest has held up to constant wear and washing and still performs as good as new. My only word of caution is that the mesh material comprising the upper back of the vest is vulnerable to snagging but so far I only have a couple small snags. The size chart is pretty accurate. I am 5' 10" 145lbs (bust 33", waist 27", hips 40") and I ended up sizing down to a small (I prefer a medium in MFF jerseys). The fit of the small is perfect for me but if my chest were any bigger I would need to size up to the medium. The hem falls right at my hip bones - just past my jersey hems, the arm holes are sized perfectly, and the fabric at the bust and waist doesn't gape or fold up on itself while I'm riding. It fits nicely over thicker winter jerseys but I would need to size up if I wanted it to fit over a bulky cycling jacket. All in all, this vest is completely worth the price. I would purchase another one in a heartbeat if this one wore out; but so far there are no signs of that happening any time soon.
I think that vests often get overlooked as a necessary piece to a quality kit. They are so versatile and can be easily stored in a jersey pocket. I find vests to be perfect for rides that may start chilly or ones with climbing and descending. Take the vest off or unzip when you start to put down the watts; put it back on when you start hauling the descent. I love the fit of this vest and that it has 2 large pockets. Machines for Freedom is 100% focused on making cycling a better, more inviting place for ladies. With the rad work they are doing and the amazing products they are putting out, I cannot recommend a brand more. 5'3 and 130 lbs- small vest is perfect.
