Like Big George himself, the Hincapie Tour Lightweight Vest gilet is a class act. It’s very smart, and totally windproof and waterproof at the front. The ﬁt is great, plus it manages to feel light and doesn’t ﬂap about on descents.
There are two loose pockets at the back, each with reﬂective details, and you can stuff the gilet into either of these to make it easier to carry in a jersey pocket. But it’s worth bearing in mind that it doesn’t pack small or fasten.
The collar is snug when zipped right up, but not restrictive. Undo it on climbs to beneﬁt from the vented mesh back
