We're very proud of the Echelon. Like a little black dress or a well-cut tuxedo it's effortlessly stylish, goes with everything and can be worn pretty much anywhere.

Made from the same multi-stretch fabric as our group test winning Rain Jacket, the Echelon is both waterproof and wind resistant. It's more robust than a ultra-lightweight racing gilet but still folds up small enough to fit in a jersey pocket. Match it with long sleeves or armwarmers for those indecisive days when the weather can't make up its mind.

The Echelon isn't a super snug racing gilet, because we know that not everyone is built like Brad. The performance fit keeps the material close enough that it won't catch the wind on a club run or sportive but with sufficient room to be comfortable on and off the bike. High quality sewn-in reflectives add to the smart looks and help you to stand out at night.

A gilet is probably the most versatile item of clothing you can own. If you've never owned one before you'll wonder how you managed without.

Gilet - The Best a Man Can Get Review by Lanterne Rouge
I've searched for a decent gilet for quite a while. I'm tall and broad, most giblets are sleeker than I am. However the sizing, stretch and fit of this is superb and the fact that those goodly folks at Chapeau had a 50% off sale made the deal very sweet indeed. Black is timeless. The chapea detail , logos , reflective strips, coupled with a chunky zip make the aesthetics work for me also. Technically , I can only praise this garment which is light, pack able, provides that extra wind cheating layer and handles rain well too. All in all an excellent little number indeed. Chapeau!

Gilet....The best a cyclist can get. Review by Redmondo79
So I've had this little black number for a year now and boy do I owe a lot to this little packable, waterproof wonder.

The cut and fit is sleek and nice. The little stretch element Chapeau! tell us about really exists and gives the gilet a good bit of comfort yet unrestricted. Nice reflectives keep you seen too.

I have it most rides and during the summer early morning rides it helped stop the early 5am air blasting on the chest like ya just walked into the freezer isle in your local supermarket. Any downpours are laughed of by the fabric yet allows a nice bit of breathability. Its really good.

During the winter I whip it out of me back pocket if the chill gets a bit too much for me Mistral Jacket and one base layer, Placed underneath, the Gilet provides another layer against any harsh winter days in the saddle. Unconventional I know but it works. A great piece of cycling clobber. (Posted on 18/01/2016)
