Stay warm after the summit.
Navigating changing weather conditions is all in a day's work when you head out for an all-day ride. Whether you're exploring a new point-to-point route or are taking advantage of being able to ride one of your favorite scenic routes under clear skies, the temperature is likely to change between the time you start and finish your ride. POC's Fondo Wind Vest will hardly fill a jersey pocket when it's folded up, but when you reach a breezy summit and feel the onset of a chill coming on, it will work far harder than its meager weight suggests to make sure you don't spend your entire descent with chattering teeth and shiver-induced speed wobbles.
The vest's polyester front panel blocks cold gusts to protect your core, while a mesh polyester and elastane panel at the lower back prevents heat from getting trapped in the vest, wicking moisture away from your skin and providing much-needed ventilation after a long, sweaty climb. POC includes a well-placed zippered front pocket to store the essentials you want to keep close at hand. Finishing touches like elastic arm and waist hems lend the vest flexibility while you move around in the saddle, and reflective accents increase your visibility to motorists out on the roads.
