Gore knows what cyclists need. This gilet has easy-access, zipped chest and rear pockets.
Reflective trim on the back, a high collar with soft fleece lining and elasticated arm openings complete an outstanding specification. With no mesh back, it's a little on the heavy side and you'd struggle to fit it in a pocket. It is a well-formed fit, flaring at the hips. A real autumn top, it's totally windproof, very breathable, and beads well enough to shrug off a light shower. It also looks very cool.
