Giordana Technical Blend Silverline Vest £39.99
At the time of writing it’s August but the weather looks more like November – conditions where a gilet can become particularly handy when making the important clothing decisions before a ride.
This example is Giordana’s Technical Blend Silverline Vest, made from Windscreen material on the front and a large section of mesh on the back for ventilation. The tall collar gives good coverage to the neck when you need to keep the chill out, and the full zip makes it a cinch to whip off. When not needed, the light weight material ensures it packs down and takes up little room in a jersey pocket.
