Louis Garneau Men’s Nova Vest Orange Fluo X-Large

Louis Garneau Men’s Nova Vest Orange Fluo X-Large

Changing ride conditions are a nightmare. After all, many of us stock our closets with a kit for nearly every climate, and we're so practiced at deciphering radar that meteorology could be our second calling. 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. Read More »

Castelli Velo Vest – Men’s Yellow Fluo, L

Castelli Velo Vest – Men’s Yellow Fluo, L

Sometimes your core needs an extra layer between it and Mother Nature's varying conditions. A base layer won't keep the drizzle away, but a full jacket is overkill. Castelli's Velo Vest is a lightweight breathable alternative that easily packs in your pocket when the sun starts to shine. Zip it up over a long sleeve jersey and be prepared for impromptu drizzle. Castelli used Forcefield Fabric to construct the Velo Vest. This extremely lightweight fabric is a 30 gram, ripstop material that is windproof and water-resistant. It was given a DWR (Durable Water Resistant) coating. It's so light, in fact, that you'll barely notice you're wearing it. Additionally, it is highly breathable so that when you are working up a sweat you won't get drenched from the inside-out. Furthermore, the vest features mesh side panels to help heat ventilate from your core. It should be noted that while the Velo vest is ideal for drizzle or windy conditions, it is not constructed with fully taped, waterproof seams. If you need a layer to keep a deluge at bay take a look at the Castelli Pocket Liner JacketThe vest was cut with a longer back for better coverage. A high mesh collar keeps drizzle from running down your neck, and when the sun comes out, the mesh neck turns into a pocket in which to store the entire vest. It only takes up half a jersey pocket so it's perfect to carry on those days when the sun doesn't look like it's going to keep the rain at bay. Castelli added a reflective logo and back tabs to increase your visibility in low-light conditions. Castelli's Velo Vest is available in six sizes from Small to XXX-large and in four colors: White, Orange fluo, Lime, and Black. Read More »

Louis Garneau Modesto 2 Jacket – Men’s Orange Fluo, XS

The transition months of spring and fall are uncertain times when it comes to temperature, but at the least, they're guaranteed to be wet and windy. The Louis Garneau Modesto Jacket 2's lightweight, breathable design is ideal for variable weather. Both wind and water resistant, the Modesto is cool enough to zip over any kit in the spring, winter, or fall. The Louis Garneau Modesto Jacket 2 is made from a blend of Garneau's Diamond Air and Light Mesh Airdry fabrics. Used for the outer-layer due to its tear-resistant diamond-pattern construction, the Diamond Air fabric is both lightweight and breathable. Additionally, this material aids in the repelling of wind and water. The Modesto's inner lining uses a large, open-celled mesh knit that keeps a consistent, cool temperature by transferring moisture to the quick drying Diamond Air surface layer. Together, they offer a lightweight design that won't overheat in the unpredictable temperatures of the transitional months. The Modesto Jacket 2 also features elastic grippers at the cuffs and hem to ensure a no-slip fit that won't shift under load. For storage, Garneau included a zip and flap rear pocket, and a 'motivation pocket' for your MP3 player. The Louis Garneau Modesto Jacket 2 is available in sizes X-Small through XX-Large, and in the colors Black/red, Bright Yellow, Ginger, and White. Read More »
