Our range of gilets & vests continues to grow so we thought we’d help you decide by guiding you through each one so you are fully informed and ready to make your choice.

Depending on the time of year and the climate you live in you will be looking at purchasing a gilet/vest primarily to give you that extra bit of protection and warmth without covering your arms. It may be used over your regular out layer or it might just be for those chillier mornings and evenings during spring or autumn when you only have a single later underneath. Gilets and vests are a great year round item to keep stashed away in your bag.

Depending on what you will be using your gilet or vest for, you may wish to consider some of the features below:

  • Reflectivity: 100% or reflective trim? What time of year and time of day will you be using your product. If early morning or at night time you may wish to consider a model with the most amount of reflectivity.
  • Cut: The cut or tailoring of a gilet or vest is down to personal preference. If you are purchasing to use on your everyday commute, then a looser commuter fit might be what you are looking for, but for the performance cyclist then a tighter fitting jacket might well be the answer. It is all down to personal preference and what you feel comfortable in.
  • Pockets: to keep your essentials safe

REFLECT360 Range

The REFLECT360 range of gilets and vests has grown extensively over recent years since the original version was introduced in Autumn 2014. The popularity across the world has meant we have continued to innovate to give our customers more options and we now offer different colours and styles to match what you are looking for.

The stand-out feature of the REFLECT360 range is that it utilises millions of reflective beads embedded in the material to light up to appear bright white using retro-reflectivity whenever headlights from a vehicle hits the material. This in turn helps the driver identify your position on the road further in advance.

We have summarised each jacket in the REFLECT360 range starting with the original jacket launched, and finishing with the very latest REFLECT360 CRS+ gilet, and we also have a running option too!
