M's Blaze Vest
A warm vest is a fall and winter essential in both bike and life. The grab and go Blaze Vest has a light weight, front side synthetic loft fi ll to keep your body warm during chilly outings while giving you the arm movement you need to get around all the obstacles that life can throw at you. Packable, light-weight and great for layering, the Blaze will be your best travel companion with secure pockets and easy-care fabrics.
If you’re like me and prefer to wear vests when riding instead of jackets, this will be your perfect companion. The 4-way stretch knit fabric at the back allows for great ventilation. This is crucial, as you want your front to be warmer when cold air hits your chest while your wind-blocked back stays cool and dry.
Awesome Winter riding vest! I usually run a bit hot, so the vest is a must have. A Burton med weight base layer, wool shirt and this terrific vest has been my outfit all Winter, down to 10 degrees. It's my favorite all time riding vest so far. Now nothing is perfect, so I have one "wish." Since I'm always wearing gloves while wearing this vest, how about you make the next version with a big old zipper pull? The tiny head of the main zipper disappears if you're trying to find it during a night ride in the cold while rolling along. That addition would make it perfect in my eyes!
I wear this almost every single ride. People compliment it all of the time and my friend bought one to match. Love it!
Super light but warm enough for cool to cold (not super cold) rides. Also easy to crush up and fit in a pack once the day warms up. As with all the CR stuff, it looks good enough to wear anywhere you go out without your wife giving you crap.
Great fit, material, quality and function. A good vest is my most important apparel for riding in lower temps and you won't go wrong with this one.
