OVERVIEW: The Alpine Gilet is designed for those looking for a thermal, weather-resistant garment that will get them comfortably through long winter base miles, and who prefer the versatility of a gilet. Paired with the Alpine Thermal RT Jersey means you get the best of both worlds; weather protection and extra warmth for your core, and heat and moisture transfer through the arms so you don’t overheat on the way up a climb (and freeze on the way down). It's ideal for days where temperatures won’t eclipse 10 degrees and when you may encounter some adverse conditions such as snow, sleet and and cold road spray.
FABRICS & CONSTRUCTION: The stretchy, cozy grid fleece softshell material on all leading-edge panels of the Alpine is not only thermally efficient, but both water resistant and wind proof as well. Medium-weight Storm Fleece across the back ensures a perfect fit while also aiding temperature regulation and breathability. To further enhance the usability of this winter garment we used an environmentally sensitive C6 DWR (durable water repellent) coating on all exterior fabrics so that moisture in the form of road spray, snow and sleet merely rolls off.
A reflective two-way zip allows for even more temperature regulation if you run hot during exertion. Three large rear pockets with a fourth zippered security pocket ensure you can stow everything you may need for a big winter ride.
