Santini 365 Sushi gilet

BikeRadar verdict

50.0 out of 5 stars

"The Sushi is a lightweight and packable gilet, but be sure to check your size"

Wednesday, November 2, 2011 2.30pm By

The instant appeal of this gilet is its light weight and small pack size. You won’t notice it in a pack and it'll even fold up into a jersey pocket. It’s ideal for summer-turning-to-autumn rides where the heat can disappear from the day in a matter of minutes and you really feel the chill of descents.

The fit is slim, so you may need to size up to get the right fit. We liked the full-length zip flap and the generous mesh sides that make for efficient ventilation. The pockets are practical too – there are two not three, but they're deep and feel very sturdy for such a light top.

The zip, however, needs two firm hands to move it and it’s not possible to make quick adjustments on the move. The strongest plus for the 365 is the one that grabs you first of all – its packable weight. Apart from that it isn’t quite as refined in terms of features or construction as others, and at a penny under £65 it does feel expensive for what it is.
