Our opinion on cycling vests is that they should be thermal and highly breathable, they should be short in length to prevent puckering in the front and they should have three rear pockets so you're not having to get your hand caught under the rear panel and into your jersey pockets. This vest does all of the above. It blocks the wind, keeps the heat in when zipped up and if it gets too hot... un-zip it and you'll be cool as a cucumber.
The vest is made from a bluesign® approved super lightweight tech-fleece fabric, designed to enable thermal regulation by trapping heat between the smooth outer layer and it's brushed fleece inner.
Due to its high stretchability, the vest has been shaped and sized to sit just above the navel, high on the hips and dropped above the tail bone on the back. This shape prevents over puckering when bent over the bike. When fully zipped up, the tech-fleece acts like a natural insulating barrier that feels like a warm and breathable second skin.
The tech-fleece is manufactured and pre-dyed by our fabric partner M.I.T.I Spa, in northern Italy. The choice of ordering the fabric pre-dyed prior to assembly keeps the tights true to colour without fading over time and also prevents transparency or white-out in high stretch areas. We also use a YKK Vislon Zipper... if you don't know what that is... It's basically the best zipper you've ever used!

When washing, always turn inside out, close any zippers, buttons or velcro on other garments in the same wash cycle and wash in cool water by hand or on a gentle washing machine cycle. Try using plant based and biodegradable washing liquid or dissolved powder that is not tested on animals. Wash dark colours separately. Do not bleach. Do not twist or wring. Hang dry inside-out to avoid any sun fading. Do not iron. Do not dry clean. Only tumble dry on a low heat setting. Do your best to avoid contact with rough surfaces like brick walls or concrete.
The Tech-Fleece Vest is designed to fit snug, which helps the fleece to regulate your temperature and quickly evaporate any sweat that builds up on the skin surface. The tech-fleece is highly stretchable so you won't feel constricted even though the fabric is thick.
Our Vegan Athletic Size Charts will help you find your perfect fit. Once you have determined your perfect fit, you have two alternative options to think about. If you would like your fit to be a race/aerodynamic fit, then go down one size from your perfect fit. If you'd like to wear it as a club/relaxed fit, go up one size from you perfect fit.
