A packable, water-resistant road wind vest (or gilet to our European friends) is a ride essential.
We built the Cypress Hybrid Vest for cold starts and blowy days. Wear it from the start of the ride, or pull it out of a rear jersey pocket when the wind picks up or the descent beckons. And we made it with almost silent GORE-TEX INFINIUM™ Active front treated with a durable water-resistant finish. To the rear, a 4-way stretch woven fabric creates a trim fit, venting heat during intense efforts to balance your temperature uphill and down.
Tailored with a smooth-running front zipper, the Cypress Vest sports twin side vents that double as pass-throughs to access snacks and supplies in your jersey. A gripper elastic hem and well-placed reflective details complete the top.
