We can never stress the importance of a quality vest enough. Let's face it, if you live in temperate climate, you might need a fancy winter jacket around two weeks out of the year. But, a good piece like the Zero RH+ Acquaria Pocket Vest has proven time and time again to be just the right amount of protection for the entire year of riding.
Starting at the front of the body, Zero RH+ used the ultralight Airdry fabric for its construction. As you might expect from its name, this material is completely windproof, and accordingly, it staves off the main source of winter chills -- headwind. As for the second principle of this fabric, the dry, Airdry uses a single-layer, open knit construction that maintains a high-level of breathability. Essentially, the fabric creates an internal micro climate that's unique to you. So, during intense aerobic exercise, the material allows excess heat to escape from the insulation layer. And not only does this keep your temperature well regulated, it also decreases moisture accumulation as well. But, if your core temperature poses to be insurmountable, you can make use of the vest's full-length front zipper with self-locking slider for on-the-fly heat dumps.
Going a step beyond this, the vest can tightly fold upon itself in order to fit into a jersey pocket. We have to admit that this was a small source of confusion for us. After all, why call it a pocket vest when the vest has no pockets? However, when we first folded it up, we quickly realized how it got its name -- the thing packages up small enough to fit under your cycling cap.
The Zero RH+ Acquaria Pocket Vest is available in the color Black and in six sizes from Small to XXX-Large.

I really like the pocket vest. It has an inside pocket for a car key and it's very lightweight. The vented back keeps humidity down.
