Woot! I'm Happy.

I haven't gotten to take the jacket out in the wind to determine how 'wind' proof it is. It can be easily packed away into a jersey pocket, its really light weight. For sizing I am about 205lbs, 34 inch waist, 6'3'. XL tee shirts are generally loose on me and normally wear a large. I ended up trying one of these on at a local store and ended up with buying an XL Vest. I have room for multiple layers underneath the vest. The sleeves are long enough for my monkey arms... as well as the body.

Under $30? Really?

This vest which I have in the ginger is great for late fall early spring riding. I have been using it almost a year now and find it to be just the right amount of wind stopping for me. The zipper is stout as well, a pluse at this price level.

Great safety vest (yellow

For the price under $30 I have to give this 5 stars. It does provide some wind blocking, but mostly wear it as safety vest.

A vest is a vest -- or is it?!

I've had a number of vests over the years, and they've all been pretty plain -- wind proof upfront with mesh in the back. I was expecting about the same when I bought this vest, but I was pleasantly surprised. First of all, this vest has three generously-sized rear pockets, which is great because you no longer have to reach under the vest to access the Gu's you're carrying in your jersey. Second, the vest also has synch cords around the waste, which enables a more "personalized" fit. And third, the long tail helps keep the backside of your shorts a bit cleaner, and also eliminates the unsightly "plumber's crack" for all those cars passing by

How packable is the vest? I am looking for something that I can take on long rinds that is easily stored in my jersey pockets. Will this vest pack small?

nice vest

Really nice quality, good price, Very useful for windy or cold days (Miami area). Nice design and colors. A+

Just right!

This is a simple,practical garment.Light weight and perfectly designed with big enough arm holes,length in back,pockets and mesh vents in rear, 2 way beefy zipper with toggles big enough to work with gloves on. Collar high and loose enough to accommodate the extra layers at neck. And it didn't break the bank. I wear large in most everything except real euro kit when I gotta go x&xxl. This vest I got a large and it's perfect for wearing over 3 layers . (5'11" @ 185lbs...winter/not fightin' weight.)

I wear a size XXL in a riding jersey and a size XL in a tee-shirt.

I had rather have the vest larger than smaller.

What size Louis Garneau Vest 2 Vest Men's should I purchase?

Check your sizing!!!

I'm sure this a very nice vest...if it fit AT ALL. I followed the size chart, thinking that, being a 42 inch chest, and it would be over a couple of layers, it would fit.
Bzzzzt, wrong answer...still my turn?

The large is HUGE and blouse-y. I fully recommend sizing down from whatever the chart may tell you.
I really like the vest. It's a well-constructed piece of kit. The seams are solid and the reflective bits are a nice touch.
Unfortunately, there are no black mediums in stock, so I will begin my search anew...

Vest and Service

I received the vest and it looks great. Glad I purchased the XL because it is true to US sizes. I normally wear a XXL in a Capo or Castelli jersey. I like the double zip and the pockets. I have a Pearl Izumi with none of those features and it's a hassle when it gets a little warm or you want to carry items. The first vest I ordered had threads coming loose and the zipper was sticking. I got customer service on the Chat and the sent me a replacement that same day - even before I returned the damaged vest. Kudos on Customer Service!!

If I wear a LG size Large jersey, what would be the recommended size I should order for the vest? Thanks

Best Answer Responded on

Large vest should be fine. The vest's fit is more relaxed than a jersey. I wear a medium Garneau jersey & have the medium vest, it's comfortable over a short-sleeve jersey in the spring and over several layers in the winter.

Great Vest!

I ordered the "ginger" (its bright red) vest in a size large, which is my usual size. The zipper is a bit tricky, but secure, and the neck hole is larger than I would expect. But it is an excellent vest. I use it mostly to commute back and forth to school, 10 mile round trip, and I love the large vents on the back while wearing my backpack.

High vis

This is a great vest. I got the yellow, and it is bright. I wear it over everything while commuting, it would be tough to miss me on the road. The front of the vest really helps keep the core warm by blocking wind, while the mesh on the back easily lets heat out. Lightweight, comfortable to wear, not cumbersome at all. The pockets on the back are big and roomy. The only con I'll give it is that there isn't a lot of reflective material on it. It really shines as a daytime vest, but if combined with lights at night, you should be fine. Definitley worth the price. I ordered medium, I'm 6'2", 175 lbs, 42" chest.

nice

great lightweight vest. i commute 30 miles each way to work every day and needed something hi-vis, decided to pick this up and couldn't be happier. the zipper can be a little tricky at times but, it is definitely a good vest for the money.

2 questions about this vest. 1) is it a standard red? The picture looks good but they call it "Ginger" which makes me think of an orange shade. 2) How is sizing? Turns out I'd need an XL Castelli Cervelo wind vest in order to fit anything under it. I have some LG jerseys in M that fit but this would be a top layer so has to be a little loose - L maybe?

Responded on

Joe. It is a standard red. I always kind of chuckle at the names manufactures like to give to colors...I wear a small in LG and like to go with a medium on the vest so if I'd also go L for you.

What is the weight of this vest (size medium)? That might help me evaluate it's compactability.

Hi Roy,

The vest weighs 1P, 6.2 oz. I hope that helps. It is one of the best vests out there.

Cheers!

Write your question here...are the arm holes elasticated for fit?

Responded on

The arms are not elastic; however, they do have a limited stretch to them that will allow for a clean fit without contsriction.
