The need for adaptability influenced this smart, blue packable gilet. Inspiration came from the art-school rock of 10cc, arch-pragmatists who ploughed the twin furrows of commercial success and artistic experimentation. As with our bikes, the gilet is versatile; in colder months, simply layer on top of a short-sleeve jersey and add arm warmers.
New features for 2022 include a zipped chest pocket for valuables. The gilet also has a zipped rear pocket for easy access, two open storage pockets and a reflective rear 1860 dot detail to improve visibility. The outer features a high-stretch Japanese technical fabric, with a 'ciré’ coating for windproofing. A durable water-repellent finish keeps rain out and speeds up drying.
In keeping with Pearson’s commitment to sustainability, 100% of the front outer comes from recycled polyester. The back is made from a 100% recycled Italian thermal material, with a brushed finish to keep you snug. A 100% recycled Polartec® lining (as used by US Special Forces) provides 'active' insulation, releasing excess heat rather than absorbing moisture. Stowable to fit neatly into a rear jersey pocket.
A close fitting tailored garment. Distinct styling with the benefits of a windproof, breathable insulated front.
