Craft Performance Light gilet £40

Lightweight windproof

BikeRadar score 4/5

This is the ultimate lightweight if you’re looking for a compact windproof that you can always carry with you.

It packs down small and neat into its own back pocket. A drawstring secures the pouch and it’s no bigger than a couple of gels to tuck into the back of a jersey.

You only know you’re wearing this because the wind chill has completely vanished. It’s shower resistant too, though heavier rain soon gets through.

The fit is good, if a little long in the front for racier riding positions. The payoff for the light weight is some rustle in the wind at speed and flapping around the shoulders, but for occasional use this is great.
