Vulpine's Ultralight Quilted Thermal Gilet is one of the most essential (and cosiest) staples you'll ever possess. Vulpine themselves have dubbed it the 'Gilet of Happiness'. It's a high performance solution to keep your core warm on your bike, but if you're like us it'll soon be part of your everyday life off the bike too. We love the versatility and smartness of the navy...
The Vulpine Ultralight Quilted Thermal Gilet is filled with Primaloft Gold - a brilliant technical filling that combines exceptional lightness with breathability and great insulating properties. The outer layer is snow, shower and drizzle resistant, and if you get caught in a real downpour it dries out seriously quickly.
Typical of Vulpine, the attention to detail is bewildering: a pair of cosy, zipped hand pockets, a 'secret' internal zipped pocket for valuable and a cleverly positioned rear phone pocket. The female specific design includes a cosy, high-cut neck and shoulders of toughened fabric to allow you to use your backpack with impunity.
Wear it for anything and everything from long winter rides to a brisk walk to the pub, and squash it into a bag when its job is done for the day. This could be the gilet to get you through all seasons.

Vulpine was founded by Nick & Emmalou Hussey at around the same time as VeloVixen. Coming from backgrounds in film & design, they put their life savings and house into creating the company.
They now have a little boy, Millar, and a daughter Lyra. They've had cycling genetically implanted into them. The team has grown significantly through less organic means too. Vulpine have quickly become one of the biggest and most ambitious names in cycling. Crucially, office Jack Russell Lily, remains in a position of responsibility.
They've put in years of painstaking design, research and testing to create stylish cycling apparel that you'll actually want to wear both for cycling and for when you get where you're going. They've have made sure that it is all cut for cycling, with a classic British tailored influence. They've chosen sophisticated colours that don't just mimic other products out there. They've added innovations that are practical without being dull. And visibility features that you can wear with pride.
Vulpine has been a dream for most of Nick's adult life. He fell in love with cycling as a child, quickly graduating to pretty serious road racing and time trialling. But the enjoyment of cycling in all its forms is absolutely key to all the Vulpine team members. They believe we are all Cyclists, but also people with lives off the bike as well as on. We look forward to working with them as their exponential growth and profile continues.
