Attention to detail, packability, and great looks: a great all-rounder

A versatile top, the Whisper is as at home commuting as it is racing. Its wind barriers do their job well, but we can’t say that the mesh panel is really water-resistant.


One of the lightest and most packable women’s vests we’ve tested, its ergonomic cut, elasticated waist, long back and short torso make it fit perfectly in the riding position. The grey back mesh and reflective panels look great against the passion-coloured body. The cavernous back pocket has a slightly fiddly Velcro closure but can still be used one-handed and the neatly hidden chest pocket is a real bonus.
