Morvélo have brought their award-winning design flair to this creative and technical Hemisphere women's gilet. Combining their graphic design expertise with obsessive attention to detail and high performance fabrics Morvélo have created a stunning, well-fitting gilet that is superb at beating pesky, soul destroying wind chill.
Layer this statement Morvélo Hemisphere gilet over your usual jersey to cut out the morning nip before the day warms, throw it on while descending to avoid cooling down too fast; or wear it simply while you commute to keep you safe and seen and at just the right temperature.
Your torso is kept snug with windproof Italian fabric panels up front and a mesh-back rear to help aid breathability. Unlike other gilets, Morvélo have included 3 deep rear pockets and a 4th hidden zipped pocket in a side seam to keep your valuables safe. It even folds down into its own pocket that you can stow in your jersey. What's not to love?
Morvelo Size Guide
Note: Morvelo's sizing is pretty 'realistic' if you are used to UK sizing. Bear in mind, however, that the cut is deliberately fairly snug and fitted to keep you aerodynamic and unflappy on your ride!

Oli Pepper and Dave Marcar are bike nuts to the core. They've spent most of their lives riding and racing all kinds of bikes, plus nearly as long in the worlds of graphic design and branding. In 2008, they decided to combine their passions and expertise and created Morvelo - to encompass cycling 'in all its forms'.
Since then, from their Brighton base, the firm has grown through private financing from their friends and customers - often one and the same! They are proud never to have needed to open things up to big investors, meaning they've been able to grow steadily and to create exactly the designs that they are passionate about.
Today they are amongst the rising stars of the British cycling sector. Morvelo remain independently owned and proudly British, so able to put their own distinctive mark on their ever expanding range of stunning cycling gear. They explore themes that combine cycling with wider influences from art, fashion, film and music. And they do it with real individuality and class. Their women's range is growing fast, and they have 'real' women as part of their team both to design and test all their products. Just some of the reasons why we like them so much!
