Capo Padrone SL Wind Vest - Men's Capo Padrone SL Wind Vest - Men's
While we're big proponents of the classic thermal jersey, mere insulation can only take us so far into winter's chill. Eventually, we need more of a barrier, and the Men's Capo Padrone SL Wind Vest adds the right amount of coverage for comfortable miles in early winter or early spring. By blocking the wind, the Padrone lets thermal under layers do their job without any interference from outside forces. The Padrone SL is made from Capo's Italian Element 4 Membrane, a material that performs the duties of a classic wind vest with updating breathability. By keeping your core protected from both the external chill and the internal accumulation of clammy moisture, the Italian Element 4 Membrane maintains a two-pronged assault on the leading excuses of staying off the bike when the temperature drops and the wind rises. The vest is finished with mesh panel that provides body-hugging stretch without compromising the windproof barrier on the vest's front. A jacquard waist elastic keeps everything in place, even when the three rear pockets are loaded with ride essentials. Finally, the membrane's all-over luminescence is a stylish grey in standard light but, in low-light situations, becomes an aggressively reflective surface to help keep you noticed by other road users and ensure your rides don't come to a premature end.

Castelli Perfetto Vest - Men's Castelli Perfetto Vest - Men's
The original Fawesome vest--which is basically a Gabba without sleeves and pockets--only has one identifiable flaw: the name is... questionable, at best. That's just one of the areas where Castelli found room for improvement with the Perfetto Men's Vest, and anyone who's spent time in the Fawesome will be surprised to learn that, yes, Castelli did actually manage to improve the vest. These improvements include an improved water-resistant treatment and the much appreciated addition of two rear pockets. While we appreciate the material update, the pockets make the Perfetto Vest a far more versatile option by providing the storage options that the Fawesome never did. The Perfetto isn't an indulgence, it's an investment that upgrades your entire wardrobe. The Perfetto Vest rocks the same Windstopper X-Lite Plus fabric on the front and shoulders as the rest of the Perfetto line, which places the most protection where body meets wind. Windstopper X-Lite Plus has 1. 4 billion impossibly small pores per square-inch that guard your microclimate jealously. They don't let wind or rain in, but they do let water vapor out. And when the marketing materials claim this fabric is windproof, you can actually believe them. A given material's wind resistance is measurable in a rating called CFM, which stands for cubic feet per minute, used to measure the volume of air that passes through a fabric in, you guessed it, one minute. In order to be considered truly "windproof," a fabric must register a CFM of equal to or less than 1. 0. All fabrics bearing Gore-Tex's Windstopper branding meet or exceed this rating, so they are literally windproof. The vest's back is made with Nano Flex Light instead of Windstopper X-Lite Plus, which is one of the only apparent variances in construction between the Perfetto Vest and the Perfetto Jersey. Nano Flex Light is a flexible, thermally insulating material that's been coated with countless nanofilaments in order to add water-resistance. It gives flex .

Castelli Superleggera Vest - Men's Castelli Superleggera Vest - Men's
The Castelli Men's Superleggera Vest effortlessly travels in your rear jersey pocket, deploying when chilly breezes and passing showers threaten to leave you cold and wet. It fits closely to eliminate annoying flapping at higher speeds, yet it still allows room to layer properly in cooler seasons. Reflective hits along the front and back keep you visible to oncoming traffic in low-light situations. Pertex Quantum is smartly placed along the body, blocking whipping winds from stealing precious body heat, as well as repelling light showers from dampening your upper body. Breathable mesh panels keep you cool on extended climbs and high-cadence efforts alike. Along the rear panels, the Stretch Torrent insert offers waterproof protection from oncoming weather without sacrificing its body-hugging stretch.

Castelli Vela Vest - Men's Castelli Vela Vest - Men's
Ever since the Gabba swept through the peloton, Castelli has been the go-to for weather-resistant cycling kit. In order to one-up itself, the brand went were no cyclist has gone before: the sea. The crafty Italians recently got their hands on some of the threads used in the sails on world-class racing yachts, material that's strong enough to stop wind, block water, and propel a boat while doing it. The result is the Men's Vela Vest, which is named for the Latin word for a ship's sail. The Vela situates that maritime wonder material on the front panel, between you and the elements, for a completely weatherproof barrier that still packs down to less than a half pocket when the sun comes back out from behind the clouds. The material at the Vela's heart is called Dyneema, and in addition to sails and this vest, it also feature in climbing ropes and bulletproof vests. Given those applications in particular, you might assume that it's what people turn to when failure really isn't an option. You'd be right. And that's part of the reason why it makes sense here. We should disclaim that, when we imply that it's the nuclear option in anti-weather fabric, we mean it--and that does mean it won't breath as well as your tissue-thin summer jersey. To offset the Dyneema-equipped protection, Castelli builds in panels of stretchy, breathable material on the sides and rear in order to help keep the internal climate from turning into a clammy, boggy swamp during hard efforts or when the storm relents. This is particularly useful when the bottom half of a descent is warm enough that you don't need the protection but damp and winding enough that you can't spare a hand to fiddle with the zipper. Finally, and though we mention it above, the Vela's pack-ability is worth another call-out. It compacts down to about half a man's palm, so when we say it fits in half a jersey pocket, we're erring on the side of understatement. More a like a third of a pocket, meaning you have more room for ...

Club Ride Apparel Blaze Vest - Men's Club Ride Apparel Blaze Vest - Men's
While many of your colleagues call it quits on the commuting game as soon as they feel the hint of a morning chill in the air, you're eager to stay on the bike through the colder months. Navigating the bike lanes on those chilly morning often requires more insulation than a standard wind vest. The Men's Club Ride Blaze Vest fills the void often left in commuting kit by providing high breathability and light insulation that you can adapt to different weather conditions through strategic layering. Club Ride uses durable ripstop polyester along the front panel of the vest to shield you from water and wind. That protection is complemented by breathable brushed polyester on the back, which is responsible for lightly insulating and dissipating moisture from perspiration. Light, packable synthetic fill along the front of the vest helps maintain a layer of warm air next to your skin, while the vest's bright colors and reflective accents ensure you stand out to motorists while you share the roads.

De Marchi Classico Gilet Vest - Men's De Marchi Classico Gilet Vest - Men's
When creating its Classico Gilet Men's Vest, De Marchi allowed the undeniable functionality of a basic wind vest to stand alone, free of adornments and extras. Eschewing reflective accents, pockets of any kind, and loud patterns, De Marchi employs the simple, classic aesthetics it does best to create a piece with staying power, meant to shield you on the top of gusty summits and breezy mountain passes without trapping heat. The Classico Gilet is built with Schoeller C-Change Fabric, a flexible windproof membrane capable of blocking wind while maintaining breathability to transfer moisture to the surface of the vest as you sweat. The C-Change membrane does this by actually reacting to changing temperatures, closing its pores to balance the amount of insulation versus breathability it's providing at any given time. For the times you need a little extra breathability, the full-length YKK zipper along the front of the vest allows you to quickly add extra airflow.

Etxeondo WS Team Edition All Weather Rain Vest - Men's Etxeondo WS Team Edition All Weather Rain Vest - Men's
Early-season training in the mountains is often full of unpredictability that ranges from surprise snow storms in April to anticipating far cooler temperatures up high than the valleys you start your ride from. Trying to prepare for the plethora of conditions you may see in a ride can easily lead to being weighed-down or even over-prepared, which is why hardworking pieces like Etxeondo's WS Team Edition All Weather Men's Rain Vest are so valuable to have on-hand. Far more versatile than a jacket, the vest's Windstopper construction gives it abilities beyond a basic wind vest, as it's able to block wind and repel water on cold, wet rides. Etxeondo designed it for its sponsored teams to wear while training in inclement weather, employing a slim, tailored fit and adding details only in pursuit of utility, not functionless embellishment. In the back, three small drainage holes underneath each of the three pockets help the vest shed water as quickly as possible, while a long reflective strip enhances your visibility on overcast days. Up front, a full-length zipper lets you control ventilation while the high collar lined in soft fabric protects you from errant rain drops and wind.

Giordana Sosta Winter Vest - Men's Giordana Sosta Winter Vest - Men's
When you're about to head out for a long fall ride with your ride crew and the weather tips towards the unpleasant, the Giordana Men's Sosta Winter Vest is the piece you should be running back into the house to grab. Crafted with all of Giordana's signature class, the Sosta takes its inspiration from the Italian word for "pause". Referring to those rides that allow you to stop and enjoy expansive views, midday coffee breaks, and conversations with old friends, the Sosta collection aims to mitigate challenging off-season weather to keep you out enjoying an off-season pace for as long as you can. Giordana starts with a three-layer polyester/spandex shell, complete with a DWR treatment, to repel rain and block wind on unpredictable summits. The lightweight fabric continues to breathe as it shields, ensuring you don't overheat mid-climb. On the inside of the vest, a layer of merino wool regulates body temperature, insulating when you first start your ride and keeping you cool and dry as you heat up. We thoroughly appreciate Giordana's addition of two rear vertical zippers, both of which are positioned to allow you to access the pockets in the jersey you're wearing underneath the vest. Reflective accents help you stand out to motorists on dim, overcast days, and an extra mesh lining at the front of the jersey helps improve breathability where you need it most.

Giro Wind Vest - Men's Giro Wind Vest - Men's
The designers at Giro know that a lightweight vest is a crucial piece of the riding apparel puzzle. That's exactly why they developed their version of the Wind Vest for their new clothing collection. This lightweight vest was made using a durable ripstop nylon, which effectively blocks those chilling winds from reaching your core. A vented panel was strategically placed along the back, serving to evacuate warm air and moisture buildup from within. The result is a superlight outer layer that keeps your torso shielded from icy air. And when you've successfully conquered that dicey descent, simply unzip and stash it in a jersey pocket--the lightweight design packs down nicely. Finishing off the vest are reflective accents throughout, as well light elastic treatment at the arm holes. The Giro Wind Vest - Men's is available in sizes Small to XX-Large and in the colors Glowing Red, Jet Black, and Pewter.

Giro Winds Vest - Men's Giro Winds Vest - Men's
The Giro Wind Vest is your all-season go-to for immediate deployment to respond to changing weather conditions. Sometimes, winter just requires a warm sweater; however, once the wind picks up and the precipitation comes down, things can go south quickly. Even in spring or fall a long descent can leave you with a chill for the rest of the ride, and summer rain is no fun when you're soaked on the bike. The Wind Vest's wind and water resistances mean that it's useful for inclement conditions year-round. It's also moisture wicking and has mesh vents in the back, so it won't turn you into a moving sauna during summer showers or impede the breathability of your insulating layers in winter. When the danger has passed, the Wind Vest compacts down enough to fit into a pocket or saddle bag, ready to deploy at the next sign of inclement conditions. It's also got reflective piping to help keep you visible when the clouds do roll back over the sun.

Layering for a ride can be tough, because conditions can change so frequently -- one minute you're climbing and sweating, the next you're descending and freezing.

The Element is designed to layer easily, and it's most at home as the final piece of your kit. Reflective details on the sides, shoulders, front, and back increase visibility and safety, and dual drop-in rear pockets keep your water and snacks where you can reach them.

Gore Bike Wear Element Windstopper Softshell Vest - Men's Gore Bike Wear Element Windstopper Softshell Vest - Men's
All cyclists eventually face the dilemma of how to dress for the volatile weather of the transitional seasons. It may rain, it may be windy, and the temperature may change by 10 degrees in the space of an hour. With this in mind, Gore Bike Wear offers the Element Windstopper Soft Shell Vest to deal with the maybes of the cooler months. You can stow it in a pocket, then put it on for rain, wind, or descents, letting you enjoy fall, spring, or even winter riding without worrying about over- or under-dressing. As with all Gore clothing, the star of this vest is the fabric. It incorporates three layers in a build more akin to a 2. 5-layer construction: an outer shell, a Windstopper membrane, and a lining. In this cycling sandwich, the two pieces of bread protect the Windstopper so that it can protect you, keeping you warm, breathing to transfer moisture and prevent overheating, and fending-off the elements. The Element line's Soft Shell construction is a touch heavier than Gore's similar Active Shell fabric, owing to a difference in lining. Active Shell uses a thin, mesh-like scrim for wind protection without adding undue warmth and weight while the Soft Shell incorporates a plush, soft lining that's thicker for insulation in cold weather and means less wear on mid-layers. Gore describes the fit as "comfort," but this doesn't translate into a parachute of gear. Rather, it allows for layering a base layer and a midlayer underneath it so you can dial in your own perfect balance of thermal insulation and wind resistance. The vest has a rear pocket and a zippered Napoleon pocket, a flap under the full-length front zipper, a collar that accommodates a riding position, and reflective elements spread throughout to help keep you visible in low-light conditions. The Gore Bike Wear Element Windstopper Soft Shell Vest - Men's is available in five sizes ranging from Small to XX-Large in the colors Black, Fresh Green, Neon Yellow/black, Red, and Splash Blue.

It's also finished with partially-covered shoulder seams to improve protection from drizzle and light rain in the most exposed areas. Weather resistance doesn't have to be bulky, either. The WindStopper membrane is exceptionally thin, as is the nylon fabric, so you can fold the Oxygen up and stuff it into its own zippered front pocket for easy packing, even into a jersey pocket. Slide down the semi-locking front zipper for extra ventilation when the wind dies down and the sun pops out, and ride home in comfort knowing that the reflective details will help prevent oblivious motorists from running you into the gutter.

Gore Bike Wear Power Windstopper Softshell Thermo Vest - Men's Gore Bike Wear Power Windstopper Softshell Thermo Vest - Men's
Gore Bike Wear knows that cyclists prefer the full-upper body coverage provided by its softshell jackets, but it also knows that sometimes a vest is more in order. That's why it developed the new Power SO Thermo Vest, which uses the same proven WindStopper material as its element-blocking jackets, only in a more versatile and layer-friendly design. Similar to other protective outerwear layers in Gore's POWER line, the Power SO Thermo vest was constructed using WindStopper Soft Shell fabric. This is essentially a fleece-lined, membrane-backed stretchy material that moves with you while riding. The characteristics of this fabric are ideal for exercising in cool and cold weather, as Soft Shell provides a light, flexible layer of insulation, yet it also blocks the wind and rain with its inner-membrane. WindStopper provides the comfort of a mid-layer and the water-resistance of a shell all in one. Additionally, this material's composition also breathes incredibly well, which allows moisture to escape from within, rather than collecting inside and chilling your body like other membrane layers. This means that your body remains warm, dry, and comfortable during all of your rides. Gore Bike Wear describes the fit of the Power SO as "slim," which means that it stays close to the body without constricting. Gore Bike Wear took a minimalist approach when designing the vest, so there's only a single mesh pocket on the lower back panel. But there's also a zippered pouch below this that houses a detachable storage bag (LOKSAK) for sealing off your electronic devices from the elements. The tall collar is fleece-lined, and there's a partially elasticized hem. Gore finished off the vest with reflective elements on the front, sides, and back. The Gore Bike Wear Power SO Thermo Vest is available in five sizes from Small to XX-Large and in the colors Black/white, Neon Yellow/black, and Red/white.

Hincapie Sportswear Pacific Rain Shell Vest - Men's Hincapie Sportswear Pacific Rain Shell Vest - Men's
When it's below 40 degrees Fahrenheit and raining in early winter, a heavy-weight, weather-resistant jacket is the only way to roll. But if it's still fall or already spring, then too much insulation in a rain jacket will defeat the purpose of keeping you dry because, you'll just get soaked in sweat. Hincapie Sportswear designed the Pacific Rain Shell Vest for the latter occasions, when you want to stay dry but the temperatures aren't low enough to warrant long sleeves, let alone full cold-weather gear. Hincapie's previous rain vests have used E5 2-layer barrier material, but the Pacific Rain Shell Vest upgrades to CrystalDry material. Like E5 2-layer, CrystalDry is waterproof, lightweight, and flexible. Unlike the E5 2-layer, CrystalDry is very breathable because it's a micro-pierced membrane. This feature alone is worth the upgrade, since a suffocating PVC-esque rain vest can feel like wearing, well, a suffocating PVC rain vest, but CrystalDry also has an element of wind-resistance added in for good measure. A Quantum Mesh panel at the collar further increases breathability where you'll appreciate it the most. The full-length front zipper, so often the culprit in breaches of rain security, is reinforced with an anti-weather placket underneath. The zipper is a two-way model, so you can vent from below so the jacket flaps less in the wind. To keep the storm out, the waist is gathered with a thin elastic band. The jacket has been given a reflective treatment to help keep you visible in low-light conditions, and the translucence of CrystalDry means that colors and numbers underneath it will still be visible. The Hincapie Sportswear Pacific Rain Shell Vest is available in six sizes ranging from X-Small to XX-Large in the colors Black and Translucent.

Hincapie Sportswear Power Tour Vest - Men's Hincapie Sportswear Power Tour Vest - Men's
Hincapie's new Power Tour Vest is the ideal core layer for all of your late and early season rides. Its lightweight and packable composition stays out of the way when it isn't needed, yet it quickly jumps into action when called upon. The Power Tour was constructed using a blend of Advanced LTX Wind Repel, RegulatorTek with ThermoCool, and TempoMesh. We understand that this sounds more in tune with an owner's manual than a vest, and granted, what's really important is what the fabrics do. Using a four-way stretch polyester, the Advanced LTX Wind Repel was incorporated by Hincapie because of its ability to conform to the shape and movements of the body. It also doesn't hurt that the fabric is wind-resistant and has been given both hydrophyllic and hydrophobic treatments, either. What does this mean' Well, the hydrophyllic treatment has been applied to the inner-lining of the vest to wick moisture away from the body, while the hydrophobic treatment repels water from the outside of vest. On the issue of comfort, Hincapie used a micro-sanded interior finish to ensure a soft-to-the-touch contact with the skin. Furthermore, the vest's ThermoCool yarn keeps a consistent internal temperature. The yarn adapts to your core temperature by both buffering and evaporating moisture. For ventilation, the TempoMesh inserts throughout the vest let hot air escape without letting cold air in. Additionally, this fabric has been strategically placed in order to provide stretch in heavy articulation areas. For complete protection from the elements, Hincapie included a tall, weather-resistant collar as well as a protective hem and arm openings. To secure and transport your valuables and ride essentials, the vest includes three rear cargo pockets. Hincapie has also integrated reflective accents throughout the vest for a touch of added visibility to motorists in low-light conditions.

When the wind comes a-blowin', you'll be glad your threw down the dough for the Kitsbow Men's Wind Vest. A premium piece at a premium price, the vest might seem excessive for getting dirty, but that's until you get to know it a bit better. For starters, the vest's durable, textured, stretchable polyester primary material gets a DWR treatment to block out the wind and rain, but that's to be expected. What's not expected is the slick style this vest packs, with a cut that wouldn't look out of place underneath a blazer, or detailing that justifies this thing's price tag. The logo'd strip at the center of the top of the back, for example, is actually a ventilation strip that rapidly evacuates excess heat and moisture from within. The collar protects and looks great, but never irritates, thanks to it's ergonomic, low-profile design. The front zipper locks in place and is designed to engage quickly so you don't have to fumble too long while riding no-handed to get it on, which will be easy to do while riding, because the vest also packs down tightly and easily fits into a jersey pocket.

It's well understood that sleeves are surplus to pretty much everyone's requirements, so Louis Garneau did you a favor and made the Alpha Men's Cycling Vest. It provides lightweight core insulation on chilly rides with a windproof front, stretchy and breathable back, and highly packable design that lets you stuff it easily into a jersey pocket. Wind protection is paramount, so Louis Garneau makes the front of the Alpha from X-Lite 19, a completely windproof fabric that is, as the name suggests, seriously lightweight. Lining the front is Polartec Alpha 60g synthetic insulation, which traps heat close to your body for increased warmth, while stretchy, warm, and breathable Polartec PowerStretch Pro softshell at the back helps regulate your temperature and provide mobility. The armhole binding is also stretchy, so you won't be restricted if you take the Alpha onto the Nordic ski trails or out for a cold-weather jog. The Alpha might be lightweight and easily packable in its own pocket, but its features aren't minimalist. Two zippered pockets, one at the front and one at the back, let you stash away snacks and a multitool, while the offset front zipper, brushed collar top, and soft zipper garage prevent chin irritation. An internal flap behind the zipper keeps wind from penetrating to your skin, and plenty of reflective accents help you stay visible when you're on the road.

But there are times when you simply can't plan for what you'll face out on the roads. That's why a packable vest is an essential part of anyone's wardrobe -- you can take it along, just in case. And the Louis Garneau Nova Vest proves that you don't have to spend a lot of cash for a little added insurance against unforeseen elements. The front of the Nova Vest is made of Diamond Air fabric, a polyester weave that's windproof, resistant to tearing, and treated with a water-repellent finish. It's also breathable, but you'll get most of your ventilation through the Light Mesh AirDry and Micromesh fabrics that make up the back of the vest. The Nova Vest has two back pockets so you don't have to dig underneath to your jersey for your stowed gear, and a zipper garage keeps the zipper tucked away nicely. Reflective piping on the back as well as reflective front and back logos ensure that you'll be seen as you push on through those came-from-nowhere storms. The Louis Garneau Nova Vest comes in sizes X-Small through XX-Large and in three color options: Black/red, Bright yellow, and White.

Louis Garneau Speedzone X-Lite Vest - Men's Louis Garneau Speedzone X-Lite Vest - Men's
It's one thing to have a light, packable wind vest to whip out on those chilly mornings. It's another thing to have one that weighs a mere 60 grams and packs down into a ball barely bigger than a fat strawberry -- and into a tiny pocket hidden in the collar, no less. That is the power of the Louis Garneau Speedzone X-Lite Vest. But don't interpret this as a one-trick pony. Disappearing act aside, this is an advanced technical piece. It's made of LG's X-Lite 19 fabric, an extremely light but tough material that's abrasion-resistant, thanks to its ripstop weave construction. Its DWR-waxed finish will protect you from wind and rain alike, and the mesh rear and side paneling bestow plenty of breathability. The lower rear of the vest is cut out so that you still have access to your jersey's pockets, meaning you can bust out the vest without having to transfer all your cargo. The Louis Garneau Speedzone X-Lite Vest comes in six sizes, from X-Small to XX-Large, and in three color schemes: White/black, Black/red, and Orange Fluo.

The Mavic Cosmic Pro Men's Vest is the perfect addition to your jersey pockets if you live in a world of microclimates or rapidly changing weather.

Staying dry on a descent is one of the keys to staying warm. The Cosmic Pro Vest is cut to Mavic's Pro Fit, which means it reduces flapping material as much as possible. Lycra inserts on the sides are key to this, as they add accommodating stretch without compromising the front-facing protection.

Nalini Sente Vest - Men's Nalini Sente Vest - Men's
Nalini's Sente Men's Vest is made from partially recycled polyester, but it might as well be woven from carefully-coiffed facial hair, spent espresso grounds, and cuffed jeans. That said, the Sente actually does work well in the saddle, with a wind-blocking design that's perfect for your local crit or a casual tour. Of course, it's difficult to identify the inspiration for the Sente's mustachioed fabric -- Joe Stalin' Archduke Franz Ferdinand' Zabriskie' -- but what really matters is that it's there at all. The 'staches, along with the "IAm#Hipster" tag at the back, are enough to bamboozle any crusty traditionalist, but the Sente's water-repellent treatment, elastic armhole and hem binding, and inner stash pocket make it as functional as any more staid vest.

Pearl Izumi ELITE Barrier Vest - Men's Pearl Izumi ELITE Barrier Vest - Men's
When foul weather interrupts your ride but a rain jacket is overkill, a weather-resistant vest like the Pearl Izumi Elite Barrier Vest is essential. The breathable, weather-resistant fabric takes the sting out of blustery winds, while the ventilation panels on the chest and back keep you from working up too much of a sweat. One of our favorite things about this vest is that it's extremely packable. While you're climbing or the weather is fair, you're able to leave it folded up in a pocket so you don't overheat, only to zip it over your jersey when the clouds break or you start your descent. The Elite Barrier vest is constructed with Pearl Izumi's breathable yet weather-resistant Elite Barrier polyester, which works to protect you from the elements without trapping heat. It wicks moisture through the fabric to keep you dry, while simultaneously blocking harsh gusts of wind and rain. Additionally, the Direct Vent panels at the chest and back enhance the vest's ability to regulate temperature. This vest was designed according to Pearl Izumi's Semi-Form fit, which means that the upper-torso employs a relaxed, yet anatomic cut to allow for layering. The tall collar fights off gusts of wind, while the full-length zipper makes quick layering changes a snap. Reflective accents increase your visibility to motorists in low-light conditions, and the pocket at the back ensures you don't sacrifice easy accessibility of your ride essentials.

Pearl Izumi P.R.O. Barrier Lite Vest - Men's Pearl Izumi P.R.O. Barrier Lite Vest - Men's
There are many 'decent' vests out there, but an 'amazing' vest must be packable, ultralight, and provide a solid barrier against both the wind and rain. Oh, and it also needs to breathe. Not surprisingly, the Pearl Izumi P. R. O. Barrier Lite Vest succeeds on all accounts -- it blocks the elements and lets body heat escape, yet is so unobtrusive when tucked away in your jersey pocket that you won't think twice about stuffing it in there alongside your other riding essentials. The vest was constructed using Pearl Izumi's P. R. O. Barrier Lite fabric. This is a lightweight, breathable material that's perfectly suited for the sort of weather changes that we often face during a volatile spring afternoon on the road. Made from tightly-woven monofilament materials, the Barrier Lite fabric provides you with protection from the elements while still allowing your torso to breathe and avoid moisture overload. Its versatility is one reason to use it as a wind breaker on high-speed descents, a rain protector during flash storms in the summer, or even as an extra layer to take along for winter rides -- just in case. The vest has been anatomically designed to allow a layer underneath it, yet at the same time, it's cut close enough to the body to prevent excess fabric from flapping in the wind. Panels of Softshell Lite were also added to the composition, adding a bit of stretch to the vest. Elasticized hem and arm holes maintain a secure fit over your jersey, and the full-length front zipper makes entry and exit of the vest while riding an easy task. Rounding out the construction, Izumi included reflective accents that increase your visibility to motorists in low-light conditions. The Pearl Izumi P. R. O. Barrier Lite Vest is available in sizes Small through XX-Large and in the colors Black/black, Screaming Yellow/electric blue, True Red/black, and White.

POC AVIP Wind Vest POC AVIP Wind Vest
For 2015, the AVIP Wind Vest returns, as POC knows that along with being comfortable, protected, and supported while in the saddle, we also need to be seen by motorists. The Wind Vest checks all of these boxes, as POC's AVIP (Attention Visibility Interaction Protection) concept is wrapped into this streamlined vest, meaning you stay protected and visible through its fabrics and reflective detailing. This lightweight vest was made using a technical windproof fabric along the front, which effectively blocks those chilling winds from reaching your core. A smooth 4-way stretch fabric was strategically placed along the back, serving to evacuate warm air and moisture buildup from within. The result is a superlight outer layer that keeps your torso shielded from icy air and light rain. And when you've successfully conquered that tear-inducing descent, simply unzip and stash it in a jersey pocket--the lightweight design packs down nicely. Finishing off the vest are large reflective POC logos, as well light elastic treatments at the arm holes and hem.

POC Fondo Wind Vest - Men's POC Fondo Wind Vest - Men's
Navigating changing weather conditions is all in a day's work when you head out for an all-day ride. Whether you're exploring a new point-to-point route or are taking advantage of being able to ride one of your favorite scenic routes under clear skies, the temperature is likely to change between the time you start and finish your ride. POC's Fondo Wind Vest will hardly fill a jersey pocket when it's folded up, but when you reach a breezy summit and feel the onset of a chill coming on, it will work far harder than its meager weight suggests to make sure you don't spend your entire descent with chattering teeth and shiver-induced speed wobbles. The vest's polyester front panel blocks cold gusts to protect your core, while a mesh polyester and elastane panel at the lower back prevents heat from getting trapped in the vest, wicking moisture away from your skin and providing much-needed ventilation after a long, sweaty climb. POC includes a well-placed zippered front pocket to store the essentials you want to keep close at hand. Finishing touches like elastic arm and waist hems lend the vest flexibility while you move around in the saddle, and reflective accents increase your visibility to motorists out on the roads.

Kit creep is a real thing. It starts benignly--a thermal jersey, a second pair of more insulated booties--but it can eventually take over an entire dresser, closet, or bedroom floor. There are some essential pieces, though, and even the most clutter-conscious cyclist can't do without something like Santini's Cape Town Men's Wind Vest. On early spring days when every pedal stroke is countered by gusts of wind, the Cape Town vest at least takes the injury of a chilled core out of the insult of wasted watts. The inclusion of three rear pockets is an uncommon touch for wind vests, and it provides quick access to gloves, warmers, or gels in order to ensure that you're able to keep wasting watts for dozens of miles.

For the most part, you're someone who likes to leave things up to chance when you ride. You look up at the sky when you head outside, not the radar, and you wear what you feel like, unconcerned with changing temperatures or possible weather that may occur a few miles into your day. Most of the time, you'd say this method works just fine, but when you grow tired of trying not to shiver through clenched teeth at the top of your next big climb, feeling your shoulders and neck lock up with tension as you begin your chilly descent, a piece like Santini's Guard 2. 0 Vest would be a wise investment in preparedness. Made of lightweight, packable Monica fabric that block winds and repels water, the vest comes complete with a moisture-wicking interior liner that allows it to adeptly draw moisture away from your jersey to prevent you from overheating. Reflective accents above the two rear pockets help improve your visibility in rainy, low-light conditions, and the whole vest can easily be packed up and stuffed in a jersey pocket when you reach the warmer valley roads, so you can stay prepared without being overloaded with gear.

Showers Pass' Men's Tri Vest will take up hardly any space in a jersey pocket or saddle pack, and its versatility is difficult for us to overstate. Waterproof and windproof front panels shield against quickly moving showers at the summit, while softshell side panels and mesh panels at the back give you freedom of movement and some much-needed airflow on a climb. Reflective accents keep you visible on stormy days, and two zippered pockets keep your ride essentials dry and close-at-hand.

Sportful Hot Pack Ultralight Vest - Men's Sportful Hot Pack Ultralight Vest - Men's
If you're looking for the lightest, most compact wind protection around, the Sportful Hot Pack Ultralight Men's Vest is it. It packs so small that Sportful claims it only takes up one third of a jersey pocket. But despite the incredibly packability, this vest is still fully windproof, highly water resistant, and ready to be deployed at a moment's notice. Sportful built the Hot Pack Ultralight out of an astoundingly light fabric. In fact, it feels incredibly delicate in your hands, despite the fact that it's fully windproof. Despite the delicate hand, it's plenty durable for the intended task--meaning that it's not exactly bombproof, but it's robust enough for regular use. With packability being paramount, it's not surprising that the small back pocket doubles as a stuff-sack. Sportful minimized the seams at the front of the vest, reducing the number of points of entry for water, should you decide to test the limits of its waterproofness.A drop tail keeps your backside covered in the event that road spray starts kicking up. Mesh panels at the underarms help to vent excess heat when you're working hard. The elastic arm openings help to minimize the gap between jersey and vest, which minimizes flapping, and maximizes protection. And reflective accents make you more visible to drivers, so you stay safer on the roads, especially if dusk sneaks up on you. The Sportful Hot Pack Ultralight Men's Vest is available in seven sizes, from X-Small, to 3X-Large, and in the color Light Gray.
