SANTINI ICE 2 GILET
WHAT THEY SAY: Race-fit vest made of windproof and water resistant Windtex fabric. Extremely lightweight, it can be easily folded inside its own zipped back pocket.
WHAT WE SAY: This gilet’s technical fabric gives it a very plastic look and feel, but we can’t fault its water and wind-combatting properties, both of which are of the highest order. It’s an intentionally tight fit but the grey panels beneath each arm hole offer a degree of elasticity. A zipped pocket to the rear also serves as a carry pouch that the gilet can be packed down into when not in use. Elasticated arm holes help keep drafts out, with the same material used around the waist to prevent the gilet from riding up your back – a job it does reasonably well. The see-through style divided opinion, but it does at least ensure your race number remains visible when you need to layer up. Available in sizes XS-XXXL.
