POC AVIP LIGHTWEIGHT CYCLING VEST
WHAT THEY SAY: Designed to keep the chill off on cool rides, lightweight breathable and windproof it’s ideal for changing cycling conditions.
WHAT WE SAY: Made of 80% Ripstop fabric with a DWR (durable water repellent) treatment, this gilet does exceptionally well at both repulsing rain water – which simply beads on the surface before rolling off – and keeping the wind out. The other 20% consist of two slender mesh panels beneath the arm holes that help with breathability. The arm holes, neck and waist bands are all elasticated to keep breezes on the back foot, while the zip finishes its journey in a neat zip garage, and the reflective POC logo on the tail helps with getting-youseen duties. This is a simple garment, with no pockets and no other notable features, but that helps explain why it weighs a mere 57g and can be crammed down into fist-sized bundle. Available in sizes XS-XXL, in white or this orange.
