Before you wade gung-ho into any armed robbery situations, be advised that the Protection Vest is not bulletproof.
Wind and rain, though, need not be feared; the front panels dismiss both with aplomb. The snug collar is comfortable when zipped right up for a ﬁnal bit of warmth too.
This gilet is lightweight and the mesh back provides temperature control, so it’s suited to faster rides. It doesn’t ﬂap about at speed either.
There are some niggles though. No pockets are provided and the option to pack it down is sorely lacking. The ﬁt also seems excessively long in the front for road bikes.
