When creating its Classico Gilet Men's Vest, De Marchi allowed the undeniable functionality of a basic wind vest to stand alone, free of adornments and extras. Eschewing reflective accents, pockets of any kind, and loud patterns, De Marchi employs the simple, classic aesthetics it does best to create a piece with staying power, meant to shield you on the top of gusty summits and breezy mountain passes without trapping heat.
The Classico Gilet is built with Schoeller C-Change Fabric, a flexible windproof membrane capable of blocking wind while maintaining breathability to transfer moisture to the surface of the vest as you sweat. The C-Change membrane does this by actually reacting to changing temperatures, closing its pores to balance the amount of insulation versus breathability it's providing at any given time. For the times you need a little extra breathability, the full-length YKK zipper along the front of the vest allows you to quickly add extra airflow.
