Essential Layer Vest

Layering is key to comfort when the weather is inclement, and we find that there's an art to getting it just right. That doesn't mean tossing on bulk to trap in as much heat as possible, but rather using smart and breathable pieces from the bottom up, like POC's Essential Layer Vest. The Essential Layer Vest offers a close, tight fit thanks to its flexible side panels, and lightweight fabric that provides top-tier breathability and wicking to keep you dry and warm. The nature of the lightweight fabric is ideal for cycling, as it elevates moisture transfer without adding bulk, preventing overheating at the core, while simultaneously pulling away perspiration. The vest is designed for a next-to-skin fit that sits comfortably underneath a jersey for extra comfort when frosty temperatures challenge your will to ride.

Perfect, feels like nothing

I've put it through the wringer

Must-have in cold weather. Not too warm in hot days either.
