RED ECH­E­LON GILET

Bikes Etc - - GILETS -

WHAT THEY SAY: The front line de­fence against tem­per­a­ture drops or cold winds, the Ech­e­lon gilet is your Swiss Army knife of cy­cling.

WHAT WE SAY: Chapeau’s a brand we’re a lit­tle bit in love with here at Bike­setc, largely be­cause its prod­ucts are so good look­ing but also be­cause the stuff is of such con­sis­tently high qual­ity. Made from a four-way stretch polyester and polyurethane blend, this may be a light­weight gar­ment (our medium was just 144g) but it does a stir­ling job of keep­ing out the wind and all but the heav­i­est rain. The fab­ric clings to your skin for a fit­ted look with­out feel­ing re­stric­tive and when not needed, it can be squeezed right down to fit inside its own zip­pered se­cu­rity pocket at the rear. There’s also an­other smaller zip­pered pocked on the ch­est. A zip garage, sil­i­cone grip­per on the waist band, elas­ti­cated arm holes, reflective de­tail­ing, plus sub­tle dabs of brand­ing all tell you some­thing about how much at­ten­tion to de­tail has gone into this. Avail­able in sizes S-XL.
