High warmth-to-weight ratio

Colder Riding Is Made Warmer (and Better Looking) With This Insulated Vest


December 6, 2018 Briefings By

Properly layering when cycling in colder temperatures is a must, and a good technical vest is a staple of that layering process. Velocio’s RECON Vest is an option that packs lightweight warmth for high performance but also brings plenty of off-bike aesthetic.

This bona fide cross-over piece features an exceptional warmth-to-weight ratio and a streamlined fit thanks to the use of Polartec HighLoft insulation. It sports reflective elements that are subtle in daylight but shine brightly after dark. A Pertex Quantum mini-ripstop, ultralight windproof front shell makes sure it’s weatherproof, too. With a soft microfleece back panel and collar lining, the RECON can go from a functional, technical piece for colder rides to an everyday favorite that’ll finish any outfit you wear off the bike.
