It's always nice to know you have your windproof, rain resistant gilet folded safely in your jersey pocket when the clouds roll in. Combining the vibrant, pretty design and attention to detail, Morvélo have done it again with this all-rounder gilet. Superb for beating pesky, soul destroying wind chill.
Layer this statement Morvélo Hemisphere gilet over your cycling jersey to cut out the morning nip before the day warms. On the hill, protect yourself from harsh winds and showers, or throw it on while descending to avoid cooling down too fast. Wear whilst commuting too, to keep you snug and seen on the road. The mesh panel will help with breathability, you don't want to get too warm and have to take it off - a cyclists nightmare up steep hills. The 3 rear pockets are great for stowing away cycling attire, such as a pair of Morvélo Stealth Stormshield arm warmers or tube of suncream. As a bonus, the 4th zipped pocket is a handy spot for hiding valuables. 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!
