Our lightest vest yet (only 88 grams in a size medium), the Divide is the ideal packable piece for unexpected changes in the weather or chilly mountain descents. MicroTek Supreme™ fabric across the front and shoulder panels is exceptionally good at blocking wind chill. Zero-Weight mesh in the side panels and back offers excellent stretch and breathability during periods of increased effort. A two-way YKK zipper (with reflective taping down both sides of the teeth) makes for easy access to pockets at a stop or when riding. The packability of the Divide Vest is one of its highlights. Roll, scrunch or fold it into one of the rear pockets of your Jersey and you will still have room left to store other items for your all day adventure.
Due to its location next to highest mountains in the Continental Divide, the Front Range of Colorado often experiences severe wind gusts. It's a natural phenomenon as air rapidly descends over the crest of the Rocky Mountains. It was for these conditions that we developed and named the Divide Jacket and Vest.
FABRICS & CONSTRUCTION
Lightweight, soft MicroTek Supreme™ fabric covering the entire front of the vest offers 100% protection against wind. Zero-Weight Mesh across the back and and side panels allows for full-movement stretch and heat dissipation. A taller two piece collar with mesh lining for added comfort seals in body heat, protecting you from the cold chill of a high altitude descent. The rear drops low enough to cover your pockets while tucked on a descent and is held in place with a silicone gripper. When temperatures begin to rise, roll the vest up into a fist-sized ball and stow it away into a jersey pocket.
