Cypress Hybrid Vest

98 % of 100
Make the early ride count. The Cypress Hybrid Vest is a silent, streamlined and superlight pocket-packable road wind vest, uniquely patterned with a windproof front and a 4-way stretch rear for a bespoke-like fit.


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-through pockets to access snacks and supplies in your jersey. A gripper elastic hem and well-placed reflective details complete the top.

Product Reviews

  1. the pocketprotection

    Perfect gilet to carry when you're not sure about the weather. Clean look and feel and great two openings on the side to reach the jerseypockets without being bulky closed.
  2. Apparently essential!

    After a month of use I can’t imagine not owning this vest. I wear it on every single morning ride before the temp warms up. I pack it for chilly mountain descent or rest stops. I’ve owned a number of other vests but none regulate temperature like this one. Fit is personal but the small fits me ...

  3. Dumped my other vests...

    I needed a new vest as the ones I had were either too thin and didn't do much or too thick to be able to put in a pocket. The Cypress hits the spot, way more packable than I expected when first looking at it, and no rustling in the wind!

  4. Great gilet!

    Great vest for chillier spring and fall days or those high mountain descents. I like that it's long enough in the back to make sure the things in my jersey pockets are covered too. I have the vest in red which is also great for increasing visibility on those lower light days.
  5. Great shelter from the elements

    The vest wears extremely comfortable - you hardly notice it.

  6. Athlete Pick

    Some of the ultra-endurance events I have participated in during the last couple of years have included alpine passes like Bielerhöhe Pass and Mangart Sedlo. When descending in changeable weather, this windproof vest keeps the upper body warm without making me sweat. Another great feature is its ...

  7. Athlete Pick

    Other than jersey and shorts, the Cypress hybrid vest is my most worn item! Comfortable to wear, easy to get on and off, and gives just the right amount of wind protection for the descent back down.
  8. Perfect

    The perfect vest. Great fit, fits easily in the back pocket of a jersey, pass through zippers on the back, and the goretex material breathes so much better than the polyester of other brands.
