The winds of change have brought winter temperatures to the UK this week. Wrap up warm in the snug-as-a-bug Dare2b Revelry Gilet in the continuing battle against, Jack Frost.
Quite often in the UK you can go out for a ride and experience wind, rain, sun and hail all in the first 30 minutes, it’s important to have something to keep your core protected - in all eventualities.
The Dare 2b Revelry Gilet does just that, it's great, not only for cycling but all outdoor activities where you want to move freely but still have that layer of protection.
It uses a super stretchy ILUS fabric that is wind and shower proof whilst remaining breathable- the perfect autumn or spring jacket.
To ensure it fits everyone perfectly, the hem and neck can be adjusted so it can be used over a range of garments – including your Christmas jumper! It also has two zip pockets for any necessities if you are venturing out for a short time.
If you haven’t heard of it before, ILLUS Soft shell, is designed specifically to deflect wind chill without the usual overheating problems that active users can face in traditional outerwear.
Not outright waterproof or windproof, but the Revelry Gilet is a lightweight alternative with state of the art fine denier yarns tightly woven to keep the wind out and a fabric treated for light rain conditions.
In summary: the Dare2b Revelry Gilet is the perfect mid-layer garment for those looking for that fresh air blast at the weekend. Whilst not expensive, you can still benefit from a technical piece of clothing that not only looks smart but is also very functional.
