PLEASE NOTE: this product is excluded from all offers and promotions

If there is one item in your cycling wardrobe you should always have with you, it should be a gilet: perfect for riding in a wide range of conditions.

This gilet features a windproof and water repellent front panel for early mornings or descending on a cold day, while reflective fabric on the shoulders and lower back give optimum visibility. Stretchable horizontal mesh panels on the back allow for ventilation where your body heats up the quickest, and there’s also a back opening, so you can reach your jersey pockets while riding, as well as one big back pocket. For maximum comfort, we have placed the zipper on the side of the vest instead of overlapping the jersey zipper, and (not unimportantly) it adds a unique twist of style to your look. Little details make a big difference!

The Model is wearing a size small Vest and Medium Bibs. Model is 1,57 m, 62 kg.

FIT NOTE: The vest is cut to hug the body and has a close fit. If you prefer a more generous fit for layering, we recommend sizing up

  • Wind proof and water repellent front panel
  • Horizontal mesh back panel
  • Pixel Reflect fabric used on shoulders and lower back for added security in low or poor light. 
  • Lightweight and packable
  • Back opening ensures you can reach into your pockets easily
  • One cargo pocket
  • Full-length internal zipper flap
  • Full-length YKK zipper with camlock puller
  • Tailored fit, designed for women in a cycling position
  • Silicone gripper keeps the vest in place

 

Care instructions: Machine wash cool: 30°C | Do not tumble dry | Do not dry-clean | Do not iron | Do not bleach | Wash with similar colours.

 

Fabric Certificates:

 

WindTex® – A breathable, windproof and waterproof membrane that is used to create lightweight, packable shells that provide protection from the elements.

 

Iris Size Guide

Iris clothing is - in Iris' own words - 'a true pro fit'. That means they are deliberately cut to be a close, athletic fit. HOWEVER, if you're not part of the elite professional peloton (most of us aren't!), don't panic. Iris garments are stretchy enough that the sizing in these charts should be a realistic representation of what you can expect.

And bear in mind that Iris herself is a tall, Dutch woman, so wanted to avoid the trap of making kit only for tiny people! The length is a little more generous than some brands, although not dramatically. If you are still unsure, feel free to contact us.
