Nova 2 Cycling Vest

In the depths of winter and the height of summer, dressing for a day in the saddle is easy. Tights and a jacket or a lightweight jersey and bibs. Late fall and early spring present a difficult dilemma, though: underdress and you'll freeze; overdress and you'll overheat, sweat, and then freeze anyway when the sweat turns cold and clammy. Louis Garneau's Nova 2 men's Cycling Vest address this dilemma by providing dedicated core protection that fends off the elements, breathes, and lets you layer on your arms as appropriate for the give day's conditions—even if those conditions change mid-ride.

The vest's main panels are LG's Diamond Air 2.0, a lightweight barrier against wind and water that shields your core. It's supplemented with underarm panels of breathable AirFit Mesh. The previous Nova only had patches of AirFit Mesh, but the latest model's panels now extend to the waist, and every additional square inch further increases the vest's breathability. That can be a godsend when a chilly March morning gives way to a sunny afternoon when you're mid-way up the day's final climb, too invested in a difficult climb to pull the vest off.

  • A cycling vest for the in-between days of fall and spring
  • Weather-resistant panels protect your core
  • Breathable side panels reduce the risk of overheating
  • Spacious rear pocket zips closed to protect ride essentials
  • Armholes finished with reflective strips for low-light visibility
  • Sleeveless construction lets you adjust arm coverage as needed
  • Item #LGN00HN

After less than one season the zipper gave out. Overall on the rides prior to the breakage I was enjoying the fit and visibility.

Not even close to fitting

Fit:
Runs small

Ordered an XL and I normally wear a L tshirt. Didn’t even almost fit. Had to pull on it just to zip it. Plus this company makes me pay freight in both directions. Last purchase I’ll make from these guys ever.

First vest purchase. Very happy with the purchase. The vest is lightweight and highly effective to shield wind from the chest. Pocket is deep and easy to access. The venting is great for I never have too much sweat accumulate under the vest. Color - red is perfect for good visibility.

I have ridden with this on several times last year and this year as well. Its great for several different types of weather. I have used it on shoulder type days where I either start with it on or put it on while riding. It appears well made and fits me well. I have also used it as part of a base layer when I wanted my chest covered for wind. I see why everyone says a vest is one of the most versatile parts of one's riding wardrobe. It also breaths well with the side vents.

Great value. It keeps most of the wind out, is light, and very easily packs in the back of my jersey. It also dries very quickly. It is a very relaxed fit and if I followed the size chart and gotten a large it probably would have been too short on me (most people won’t have this problem). For the money though I’ve gotten a versatile piece that has allowed me to ride comfortably in cooler, windy conditions that I never would have considered cycling in before purchasing this vest

Great for Fall rides

I got the vest before I went to Pisgah to ride in October and in knew it'd be brisk. I wore the vest with knee warmers and arm warmers and I was the prefect temperature. It's very light weight but fends off wind well and keeps your core warm. It's very comfortable as well and has a zip pocket in the back to keep items secure if you're not wearing a pack. If you do have a pack you can store the vest very easily.
