Izoard Quilted Gilet

(26 customer reviews)


An insulated gilet delivering serious warmth in a feather-light, stylish package.

Designed to be the warmest top layer available on the market, since the first generation launch in 2018, it has been used as much off the bike, as on this winter.   The Izoard uses a super-soft, high denier fabric similar to fabrics used in mountaineering sleeping bags. The garment remains soft to the touch and very low bulk, so it can be easily packed away until you need it. The side panels are in a high stretch Super-Roubaix® fabric that provides incredible ‘fit’ accommodation and regulates core temperature. The ActiveSport® utilises 40g/m  Synthetic insulation keeps on performing even when it’s wet and provides full windproof and showerproof core protection.

We have 3M reflective highlights on the full, front zip and on the rear sides. The massive, rear pocket is big enough to hold all essentials and can be accessed from both, zippered sides.

Reversible Zinc Orange/ Black.

A dual chest Phone/wallet pocket for your valuables.

Stitched to last. Timeless style and performance

    This is my 6th item I bought since I found this brand during the summer. Quality stuff. Size large fits well. I’m 12 stone, 40in chest and 30 in jeans. Snug, not to tight with some room underneath.

    Great fit, well made, packs down really small. Nice enough to use both on and off the bike. The brighter colour for darker rides is a big plus.
    I’m 5ft 8, 11 stone, 30 inch waist (37 inch chest) and the small is perfect.

    Bought an XL for my 42 inch chest- I could have gone for a large as in between chest sizes, but as I have a slight middle aged spread the XL is a perfect slim fit. I have been reluctant to try it out as the gilet looks great with jeans ! Anyway, no flapping, lovely and warm- I wore it over a long sleeve core jersey and when it reached 14c I had to unzip it a bit as it’s quite warm. But the sun went in ( as it does in Northumberland) and the temperature dropped to 11c and the gilet was perfect. Kept a couple of bars in the long rear pocket – I like that pocket – they were held above waist level and didn’t move about or catch the saddle. It feels good quality and well stitched. My iPhone XR fits in the chest pocket, result! I paid the extra for tracked delivery so I could be in- which came in 3 days, but I didn’t receive any way to track it so next time I’ll just select normal postage. Only a minor thing though. I also got a nice freebie included – thanks Galibier! Nice touch. Will be back for some more gear soon now I have ‘discovered’ you.

    Arrived in two days with free shipping. Amazing quality gilet which is even better than in the pictures. Have worn it on climbs and descents and although it’s a little warm when climbing (basically every jacket is) it’s a godsend on the Downhills and in the wind. The fact that it also looks good off the bike meant I didn’t look too silly going for a post ride pint either

    Not yet had an opportunity to use on the bike but first impressions:
    Sizing: Excellent. I’m a 42inch chest, 87kg, 178cm in height and large fits perfectly. Certainly not tight, but just the great close fit I wanted.
    Quality: Again is excellent, soft/silky shell, main zip works fine as do those on rear.
    Features: reflective material on front zip and down each side of rear is reassuring. ‘Galibier’ motif is very smart, useful Napolean pocket on chest (both sides) and super to have the versatility of a reversible colour jacket to wear on or off bike. Nice height collar. Weight: 208 grams on my scale so very lightweight and just about packable in your jersey rear pocket. I run very hot so intend to use on my cold winter night rides with just a jersey or base-layer. My first purchase from Galibier but very pleased and will be looking closely at the rest of their range.

    This is yet another high quality, well-made and well-designed piece of cycling kit from Galibier in my view, it seems that nothing has been overlooked in its design and although I received mine on the hottest day of the year so far and haven’t been able to try it out in anger yet, I’m already sure it’s up to the job. Some here have mentioned it’s genuinely wearable off the bike (try doing that with bib shorts) – and it is, it looks good. O and the chest pocket is surprisingly big, you can get a lot in there.
    I’m 5ft10, with a 109cm chest and weigh 85kg – and as advised above size XL fits me perfectly. As I’ve found to be the case with all the Galibier garments I’ve bought, this gilet has surpassed all my expectations at a price that’s truly remarkable – it’s cheap ONLY in price. Now what else do I need…

    I bought this Gilet when it first came out,it’s lovely and warm. I got the Large size which i have worn but it’s a bit big on me,(i am normally a ladies size 14 on top) i have given it to my hubby who also loves your stuff and i’ll order the Medium for myself as they are such good quality and quite smart.We will soon be all matching x

  8. Bobby McGlade (verified owner)

    Quality is excellent as is the fit, snug and comfortable. A great piece of cycling clothing but equally at home as a walking gilet or part of layer system in colder weather. I will be wearing this as casual clothing in addition to cycling. Great buy.

  9. Elaine Dey (verified owner)

    As with all Galibier garments this is fantastic quality. The material feels soft and the stretchy side panels ensure it is a perfect fit. Classy enough to wear off the bike and easily fits over my Rapha winter jersey when the weather changes. I am 5’4″ and about 70kg…..medium is perfect for me.

  10. Bernard Cunningham

    Received my gilet as a gift, I must say I didn’t expect it to be so warn, it’s a really good garment.

  11. Bigplate Lineout

    Magnificent garment both on and off the bike. Ingenious design

  12. Rory Loughran (verified owner)

    Love this item. Wear it casually as its pretty smart black side and sporty orange side. Actually feels like you are getting two garments for one. Super lightweight and warmth beyond its volume. Very highly recommended

  13. A McCormick (verified owner)

    Received my gilet this morning – I absolutely love it. Great design and great quality. Delighted with this purchase. Good job –

  14. A McCormick (verified owner)

    Received my gilet this morning. Another one for the collection – have to say I am delighted with this gilet. Well designed, great fit, nice contrasting colour combination. Overall it’s quite fantastic – great price too.

    i never really got to grips with gilets,they always felt compromised in someway..then the offer of this for less than £40..the fit is excellent..warm enough down to zero, superb at negating wind chill too, the “orange” side is smart and stands out in the murk of winter,,the real surprise is how unrestrictive it feels when pushing yourself..i truly hate winter riding, but i’m enjoying it a fair bit more cos of this

  16. Simon Bailey (verified owner)

    Used this 1/2 a dozen times now. Really impressed, this punches well above its price point. Keeps your core warm on a cold day and the cut is spot on. Im 6ft 4, 42” chest and its an ideal fit. No flapping, but not restrictive either. You can also wear it off the bike. My 3rd Galibier purchase and i’ll be back for more.

  17. Paul Callan (verified owner)

    Just got it today and am swanning around in it in my house. Roll on a rideable day. Looks great and fits great.

  18. Ian Dunn (verified owner)

    Ordered this gilet along with a jacket on Sunday evening. They amazingly turned up on Tuesday! The jacket in a medium was a great fit and excellent quality. The gilet was great quality but I ordered the large and it was too big. On Wednesday I posted the gilet back to exchange for a medium. Tonight (Friday) I got in from work and my new gilet had arrived. I have just been out and done 25k with temperatures down to 1 degree and can say that with the mistrial pro jacket and this gilet, I have never been so warm and comfortable in cold weather. The products are outstanding, the service is the best I have ever received on-line. Thank you so much to all at Galibier, I will be back.

  19. allistermac53 (verified owner)

    Really enjoying this gilet! Wear it mostly on a daily basis as its so warm and comfortable. Perfect for use while hand cycling as its splash proof and arms have freedom of movement. Folds up to fit inside a pocket for when it gets too warm.

  20. nigeltownley909 (verified owner)

    I love it. I cycle along Portobello promenade (Edinburgh)6 days a week and I recently purchased the gilet to keep out the cold wind blowing across the sea. I am 5’11 and ~ 83kg. The Large fits like a glove and it really does keep the wind out. I am fairly new to cycling and I have only just started to venture down the worm hole of trying to identify good quality cycling gear at a raeasonable price that also looks good. Galibier certainly ticks all 3 boxes for me and I am sure I will be returning for further clothing as the seasons unfold.

  21. Alan Beatty (verified owner)

    Quality item. Using it on daily commutes for a few weeks now, as still chilly in the mornings. Keeps core nice and warm without overheating.
    I have worn this as casual (non-bike) wear on a few occasions too and it works great for that too. Doesn’t scream “cyclist”, and looks very smart.
    As per usual with Galibier it’s quality at a very reasonable price.

  22. Richard Drinkwater (verified owner)

    What a great piece of kit! Had mine for a few weeks now, has not failed to keep me warm and comfortable on cold club runs and if you get too hot if easily packs down to fit in a jersey pocket. Plus I’ve worn it a few times ‘off bike’ and has drawn quite a few admiring comments – so a winning gilet on all counts. Opted for a size small (64.5kg/5’10”) and the Galibier sizing is spot on.

  23. Richard green (verified owner)

    I have used this extensively since I bought it. It is very warm and breathable. I do like the fit as well. It looks good on the bike and off. My only gripe is that the arm holes are slightly too big, for a cyclists with spindly arms it can let draft in under the arms when wearing just a long sleeve windproof base layer. She I wore my long sleeves jersey over tue base layer with the gipet it was ok but stromg winds made it in a bit.

  24. Simon Langdon (verified owner)

    Love this!
    The temperature has now dropped in the mornings (Yorkshire) and this has been brilliant on the morning commutes. Great at keeping the core warm and stopping wind chill on descents. Can see this becoming my favorite cycling garment. Rolls up small enough to go in the back pocket for return journey if warmer.
    Also looks good off the bike. Used it hiking in the Swiss Alps recently.

  25. Remy Halliday (verified owner)

    Used this for the first time on an over night 100 mile ride.
    Rolls small enough to fit perfectly in the rear pockets of the Gino wind jacket.
    Starting temp was around 17-19 degrees…but it dropped to around 2 degrees for a good few hours through the night. Would not have known the temp was so low.
    Used over the Gino Wind Jacket and Mistral base layer, never felt the chill. Heard a few other riders wearing other brands say they were feeling cold or felt a chill on the decent and over night.

    Hats off to the team at Galibier for another excellent product that would appear to out-perform other more expensive brands.

    Often ridiculed for the amount of gilets I own, I now consider myself an expert in the field… In all seriousness this thing is awesome quality and real good value. It’s lightweight and whilst not tested in the coldest weather I can tell it’s going to be great. It looks good off the bike too, in fact i’m wearing it at work right now. Been after something like this for a while. Well done Galibier. Sizing chart is spot on. It’s definitely windproof, seems like it would be pretty waterproof too. Looks like it ticks all the boxes. I’m impressed.
