Variety is the spice of your ride

For most of us, it won't be sunny and 70 every time we head out the door to get in a pedal. Embrace the variety that makes every ride an adventure with Mavic's HC Vest. 

The abbreviation HC stands for Hors Categorie, a climb that is so difficult it is ranked above all other climbs. True to its name, the HC Vest functions at a level above other riding vests. It was sewn from Warm Shell Rain ST. Much like the soft shell of a ski jacket, this fabric is not only wind resistant, it also helps to shed water to keep you dry. The HC Vest is, in fact, rated to 5000mm, which is high enough to keep drizzle or spray from drenching you. Additionally, the fabric is soft to the touch so you won't feel like you are wearing a crinkly, plastic garbage bag.

The Warm Shell Rain ST is joined with stretch panels to make the form fit of the vest still flexible and easy to move in. Additionally, mesh inserts help to vent excess heat so that you don't drown in your own sweat while trying to keep Mother Nature at bay. It features an elongated back for complete coverage. Perhaps the coolest detail is the Ergo Zip. With the Ergo Zip, the zipper is asymmetrical and offset to the side of your chin -- this reduces chafing.

A zip Napoleon pocket holds your phone or ID and a rear zip pocket is ideal for the rest of your riding essentials. Reflective highlights keep you visible when the sun goes down.

The Mavic HC Vest is available in sizes X-Small to X-Large and in two colors: Red/black and Black/folio.

Great Vest

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Awesome vest!!! At 6' 0" and 185 lbs I took a chance with a L and I'm glad I did. Great fit and no flapping, finally. Ample storage with both chest pocket for a few bucks and ID and a large single pocket on the back perfect for your arm warmers once the temp starts to rise. The front provides very good wind protection and feels water resistant, although I've yet to wear in the rain. I would definitely recommend this item.

Great for cooler days.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I ordered this vest right after the holidays and using it in the 40 degree weather in South Carolina is perfect. The soft shell is thick enough to provide extra warmth and wind blocking, but not too thick to be cumbersome. Also the off-set zipper is great because it does not irritate my chin. The rear zip pocket is huge and can carry pretty much anything you want.
