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.
I was wearing a "normal" vest with about the same amount of insulation. When the ride was finished my back was soaked. When I read the description for this I thought it was just what I need to keep my back dryer. I use a backpack in the shoulder and cold weather so this works perfectly. I still sweat, but I'm not drenched at the end of the ride. Thanks for another great product!
1st chilly weather in SoCal gave me a chance to test the vest. 1st impression - Great!. It was perfect in combo with the long sleeve Henley. It is light weight, not bulky and after I started riding, I forgot about it. I liked not feeling bundled up, yet comfortably warm. It feels well constructed and I look forward to a cool fall and winter. As always, ordering and shipping was great. I find that going by the size of models is a pretty good guide for fitting, but knowing I can easily exchange it if it isn’t right, adds confidence.
Full disclosure-haven’t worn it on a ride yet but the look, fit and feel are awesome. Perfect fit. Fits close but I do not exactly have a cyclist body.
Vest is perfect for fall, on and off the bike
Super comfortable and *CRAZY* lightweight. I think Club Ride might be in cahoots with mystical forces, because I don't think science alone is enough to make something this light, warm, and comfortable. I use it for biking, hiking, and just when it's cooler. It's warm but not hot, and because the back isn't insulated like the front, you don't overheat/sweat doesn't get trapped between your back and your backpack.
And like all Club Ride stuff, the quality is top notch. Really rugged and durable fabric and stitching, and looks pretty cool.
