Aussie Grit - 2018 flint Thermal Gilet

If you’re like me when out biking you like your main body core nice and warm but your arms out in the fresh air. For this gilet’s are perfect and do just the job, as I use gilet’s of all kinds whether it be the puffer kind or a climacool for walking I thought Aussie Grit would just be something similar however the way it has been designed and put together makes it something special!

When you look at the gilet one of the first things you will notice it the textured linings, you wouldn’t think this would make a difference but when out in the cold it keeps warmth in like no other gilet iv tried. I have been testing the thermal gilet at the perfect time with the beast from the east invading Britain making conditions incredibly cold for March! It has meant that instead of going out and biking fewer times due to the adverse weather I could keep up the usual bike days.

On top of the great thermal tech installed in the gilet if weather gets windy and rainy which is highly probable then the gilet adds protection from the wind and the rain just slides off!

They have looked at the benefits of road cycling jerseys with the easy access pocket and secure zip pocket on the back and implemented them into the gilet which adds great storage for bars or gels for energy through the easy access pocket or higher value items with the zip pocket. Like the pocket on shorts they are designed so the contents stays nice and tight and secure so they don’t move around and annoy you while riding on bumpy terrain.
