If you're looking for a minimal and lightweight vest that provides windproof protection to keep your core warm during milder rides, reach for the UMA GT Wind Vest Summer from Assos. This particular one sports a women's specific Long Distance cut with a form-fitting design. It uses its Foil Ultra textile up front for protection against the wind and water resistance and its windproof Glossy on the side for more stretch and breathability. At the collar, its double layer construction improves elasticity and keeps the heat in. Everything is treated with DWR to keep any precipitation from soaking through. The real star of the show is just how packable and lightweight the shell is. It's ideal for tossing in the jersey pocket if the weather is uncertain or for putting on at the start of the ride to get you warmed up quickly if its a chilly start or before descending a canyon road. The body-mapped performance fit is a little less aggressive than its Aero Racing line so you have plenty of breathing room and space over a jersey and baselayer without sacrificing a tailored fit that won't flap in the wind. Speaking of not flapping in the wind, the vest has been designed to be as quiet as possible with a rustle-free fabric. At the rear, a stretch net material is utilized for increased ventilation and if that's not enough breathability, a full-length Camlock zipper lets you easily adjust to the conditions. The UMA GT Wind Vest Summer is available in 6 sizes and in the colors Blackseries and Galaxypink.
