Primarily designed to be worn from the start of a ride until you reach the finish line (a.k.a. the treat yourself cake stop). This gilet provides protection against the elements, offers plenty of space for storage and shows off its striking kriss-kross pattern.
Morvelo's Kriss Kross Hemisphere Gilet is made from a water resistant and windproof fabric, meaning if you're caught up in an unexpected shower or battling winds head-on, cycling should stay moderately dry and free from any fabric-flapping mayhem. The rear mesh is not only striking to the eye, it breathes super easy and allows heat and moisture to escape so you don't get a sweaty back.
Its back panel has been deliberately cut longer to cover the behind. There's more chance rain will run off the gilet and not into your shorts (bad times) and when you're sat in the ride-position, a silicone grip around the hem keeps the gilet in place. The high collar acts like a wind block and the full length zip will lock once zipped up, so it doesn't open inadvertently.
There are three suitably sized rear pockets and a zipped valuable pocket for all your cycling must-haves, so you can potentially ditch the backpack! An incredibly versatile gilet and great for all day riding.
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!
