Our first weather-resistant vest in a new softer, stretchier fabric.
When spring begins to peek out behind winter clouds and coax blooms out of hiding, it’s only natural to want to run out and greet it. But spring isn’t always sunshine, and you may need a little help in getting out there during those first few months. Introducing The All Weather Vest, our first vest to feature water-resistant fabric in a velvety-soft finish that’s even stretchier, allowing for a better fit. (Sound familiar? It’s the same fabric as our Daybreak Wind Jacket!)
Other updates include reflective trim to keep you safe and a new colorway that calls to mind golden sunshine and spring day smiles. Just like the Galaxie Vest this piece features two extra large pockets, making it more than just a shell. It’s a true do-it-all piece, from protecting against unexpected showers to providing extra storage on unsupported century rides.
- This all new vest is made from the same fabric as our Daybreak Wind Jacket for a softer feel that adds protection from light rain.
- 4-way stretch for your a flattering fit that won’t balloon in the wind.
- Wind proof and water resistant.
- High collar protects your neck from windchill.
- 2 extra large back pockets for stowing larger items and extra layers.
- Ultra-light and packable.
- Brand new colorway with new reflective trim offers visibility without overwhelming the eye.
- Top quality, self-locking, zippers for easy hands-free zipping.
Size & Fit
The weather has finally cooled off a bit and been able to really give this vest a good testing over a few rides. I absolutely LOVE the fabric. First morning ride I got to test it in 55-65 degree weather with damp roads and a quick sprinkle. Water resistant and just slid off with rooster tails flying. The length is perfect for someone who is short (5'1") though accessing the massive pockets is a little bit of an exercise in flexibility. I love that the pockets are so large, it's just my arms are hard to reach so high up my back to access the items within. When I was getting warm on some climbs, a little unzip of the zipper and venting was perfect. The main reason for not giving 5 stars (I'd give 4.5 if half stars were allowed) is that the zipper is quite small and when wearing full finger gloves, it's REALLY tricky to find the zipper in the zipper garage for a fast pull. I wish the zipper tab was a little larger or had a stiff cloth pull tab for easier access when wearing full finger gloves. Other than that, I'm in love with this piece of my riding wardrobe and looking forward to many seasons of warmth.
I like the color to be visible on the road without looking like a traffic cone. Keeps me warm on morning commutes, but easily stuffs in my pocket when I warm up.
I wore it on my first century ride. The pockets are huge and perfect. My bottle fell out of its cage and totally broke during the first 15mi. At the next rest stop, I managed to get a large empty jar of skippy to fill with water, which I was easily able to put into my vest pocket for the next 85mi of riding!
I also wear this over my work clothes for my rides bc it looks cool and has a reflective line.
I loved the fit and material, but I was expecting the color to be more yellow and less gold so I returned it.
This vest is fantastic! Back well ventilated, huge back pockets that swallow all the layers you may need to peel off during a spring ride. Fantastic feel of the fabric and the color seems to go with nearly everything and is highly visible without you looking like a highlighter!
