Louis Garneau's ultra-lightweight Speedzone X-Lite Cycling Vest offers light protection and great practicality. A hole in the back allows access to jersey pockets and keeps race numbers visible. The vest can be compressed and stored in a pocket directly in its collar. The front of the Speedzone X-Lite vest is made with XLite-19 fabric, an ultra-light, breathable, and wind-breaking nylon weave that has good abrasion-resistance properties thanks to ripstop construction. A DWR-waxed finish repels water to keep you protected from the elements. At the back and sides, the XLite Mesh provides optimal ventilation and comfort thanks to a stretchable and tear-resistant microfiber construction.
