Castelli - Vela Vest
Please use the ENQUIRY FORM/BUTTON for product details, color variants, and the latest stock information.
The incredible light weight and compactibility of the Vela Vest comes from leading sailmaking fabric from America’s Cup racing. This wind- and waterproof fabric uses Dyneema® yarns for near-bulletproof strength. You’ve seen Dyneema® as the white core yarns in rock-climbing ropes, and it’s also used in bulletproof vests. This fabric comes straight from sailing, where ultralight weight and extreme tensile strength come together in a sport where cost doesn’t matter. Only winning matters. We finish off the vest with water-repellent DWR-coated 50-gram stretch woven inserts for breathability. You get front wind protection and significant water protection in a piece that folds down to almost nothing when you stash it in your pocket.
