The need for adaptability influenced this smart, packable gilet but inspiration came from an unlikely source; 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. Features include a zipped rear valuables pocket, two open storage pockets and a reflective Pearson Rose 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 aim to provide sustainable products, 70% of the front outer comes from recycled polyester. The back is made from a 100% recycled Italian 'Roubaix' material, with a brushed finish to keep you snug. A 100% recycled Polartec® lining provides 'active' insulation, releasing excess heat rather than absorbing moisture. Stowable to fit neatly into a rear jersey pocket.
