Nalini Agarose Mantovent review

The Agarose is a simple, windproof gilet. The cut on the large size we tested is boxy but slim – remember this is Italian sizing - with relatively tight but comfortable arm holes.

Very wind resistant gilet, but not the most breathable

The Agarose is a simple, windproof gilet. The cut on the large size we tested is boxy but slim – remember this is Italian sizing – with relatively tight but comfortable arm holes.

There’s a small zippered rear pocket and a large mesh panel across the back, with a long reflective strip running along its length – it could do with something on the front too. The zip runs smooth and can be pulled with one hand, while the high, close collar features a guard to stop it chaffing against the chin. In use, the Agarose proved very wind resistant thanks to its thicker fabric, high collar and elasticated hem, at the expense of a little breathability.
