Vests and gilets provide protection where you need it most. Making sure your core is warm in the outdoors is not just a matter of comfort. It is a matter of safety. But vests and gilets have a range of other practical applications. The one you choose is simply a matter of necessity. For city cycling or day-trekking there is nothing better than a dependable fleece to give warmth where it is needed, while allowing for excellent freedom of movement. For everyday wear, opt something like the Keb Fleece Vest. When you need robust warmth in harsh conditions, choose a men's down vest made of a durable outer fabric. The Expedition Down Lite Vest for example, is a sleeveless version of the classic 1974 jacket. When silence is of utmost importance, opt for a vest in stretch fabric. For hunting, the Lappland Hybrid, which is made of G-1000 Eco, is ideal. And also well-equipped with pockets and practical features. Warm-weather trekking is not a time for bulky garments. Keep all of your necessities handy, while keeping cool, with a lightweight Travellers MT Vest. Also a great option for keeping documents handy while travelling.
