The Endura Pakagilet is one of the best vests you will find on the market. It is lightweight, takes very little space when packed and it is one of the few vests that allow you to easily access your jersey’s back pockets.
Made from a ultra lightweight and showerproof ripstop fabric, the windproof vest is durable and survived the many encounters with tree branches while riding the trails.
The fit is great, nonrestrictive, a bit on the roady side, forgiving, but not flappy, with a slightly lower back. The collar is high and the full front zip is covered with a flap so, no wind will pass through the zip. The armholes, rear neck side and the hem are all elastic and seal the vest very well. Unlike most of the vests I have tried, even some of the super expensive ones, no wind will be getting in through the back of the collar.
One other thing I liked a lot was the rear pocket opening that allows me to access my jersey pockets without taking the vest off or lifting the back side up. Quite handy feature and I must say, not that easy to find on other vests.
The Endura Pakagilet comes in 4 colors including hi-visibility yellow. It is an essential piece of clothing that can be used from spring till autumn and takes a place with your other riding must haves like a spare tube, pump and water bottles.
Pros: Light, versatile, durable, excellent construction, full of features and reasonably priced
Value: 10/10 Highly recommended
