R. Vest Protection
The most immediately striking aspect of Q36.5’s R. Vest Protection is its extraordinarily low volume. This is a rain vest in the spirit of the very first cycling gilets, or professional alpine flash rain vest: a true emergency friend, designed to do only one thing, perfectly and which can accompany you on every single ride at minimal weight expense (107g, quite the same weight as the Jersey short sleeve L1).
The R. Vest Protection is constructed from an essentialist proprietary 3-layer fabric: the outer layer is an extremely compact high-density woven polyamide, while the second layer is an avant-garde hydrophobic porous membrane with very high-breathability (RET value of 5) and 18.000 mm/l waterproof rating.
Every weak point of the traditional rain jacket’s paneling has been aggressively addressed to the vest: the collar area is hermetically sealed through a generous ergonomic form and second, internal ‘barber’s’ collar; all seams, which compromise waterproofing, have been moved to the least exposed part of the vest; wrist cuffs are elasticated for snug fit and easy access to jersey pockets below is guaranteed by two subtle slits in the back.
The R. Vest Protection is in itself a versatile vest: it is designed to protect the high-intensity rider from sudden flashes of foul weather with the least amount of weight and volume, given of being also sleeveless. It does this perfectly. It weighs less than your jersey. You don’t even notice it in your back pocket. You bring it on every ride.
