Castelli Elemento Lite Vest
For anyone looking for a comfortable, warm cycling gilet, the Castelli Elemento Lite Vest represents a great option. It's a lightweight construction that optimises some innovative contemporary materials to deliver superb insulation and breathability.
The air-permeable woven-textured nylon outer shell is made with meticulous accuracy in Japan and is treated with a water-repellent finish to help repel light showers and road spray. Polypropylene synthetic down is used to create a high performing insulation layer which doesn't allow water absorption and maintains the breathability of the garment as a whole.
The side panels have a plissé treatment, or crinkle effect, which stretches to provide the perfect fit without impeding your freedom of movement. With two rear pockets, you can carry essentials like nutrition and tools, and the whole vest can be rolled up and packed neatly into your jersey pocket.
