About Our Mens Gilets & Jackets

Our Cycling Gilets and Jackets are sized to go over a jersey so you shouldn't need to go up a size unless you're wearing it over several layers. See specific information about each garment fitting below.

 

*When To Wear is a GUIDE. Your body temperature will affect your needs. If you find that you are wet on the inside, you're wearing too many layers.
