This Garneau vest is a really great take on one of the best apparel essentials a cyclist can own. This particular vest has very nice features, such as a longer tail, zippered rear pocket, reflective accents and snug arm holes that keep it highly functional and very comfortable. This particular vest is the hi viz color, which adds a nice safety element to the vest as well. No longer interested in team kits with lots of advertising on them, this vest hits the target for a perfect recreational component.
I use the vest from fall through spring and sometimes in the summer on cool mornings. I live in CA so the vest is perfect for this area. The size (Large) is true to form. I am 511 175 lbs and will wear clothes underneath and it fits fine. Good zipper and large rear pocket. Very satisfied,
I bought this last Spring for those days when you need a little wind protection but not much insulation. I'm happy with it for that purpose. Love the fit, not loose not tight. Good for light layering. Love the high viz color. It's good to be seen. Paid about $30 for it which is a good price these days. The zipper has held up so far, so I would recommend.
