Echelon Gilet


The front line defence against temperature drops or cold winds, the Echelon Gilet is your Swiss army knife of cycling. Small and light enough to pack away but strong enough to offer protection, we’ve got you covered for most of the year.

Lightweight and packable this slim fitting windproof gilet provides an extra layer of protection for early starts or in changes of weather. With DWR coating to protect you from showers and keep the worst of the weather at arms length.

The four way stretch, lightweight (137g for a size medium) fabric has a fit slim enough to not act as a sail but not so tight that you can’t fill your jersey pockets. Designed to make your rides more comfortable in numerous conditions the Echelon Gilet is a staple for Autumn and Winter riding and looks great paired with our thermal long sleeve jerseys.

Go to kit

I have been using this over the winter and spring on almost every ride in varying conditions just layering up as necessary. It has been one of the best pieces of kit I’ve ever used, I usually run quite hot and this has been fine without leaving me drenched underneath. Windstopping is great, I haven’t really used it much in the way of rain to comment

I’m 6ft 1 and weight 13st 7 and the large fits me fine with no loose material flapping around, the side pocket is big enough for me to get my iphone8 plus in, the front pocket is ideal for keys/cash.

This was my first purchase from chapeau and have bought a few other pieces since then based on how happy I was with the gilet

Really nice gilet

On first wearing it appears a bit thin but it also strangely feels strong; it stretches nicely over the jersey even with stuff in the back pockets. It's warm, repels water and is much better than any other I own. Recommended
