VentUltra Jacket.

(11 customer reviews)


Ultra-Lite, packable, windproof and water resistant jacket, is indispensable for days when the weather is very changeable.  Pack it in a jersey pocket on every ride, just in case. 


Our VentUltra jacket  is carefully designed to keep you dry in light rain and warm on long, alpine descents. Specific requirements of very low weight and low pack volume lead us to VentUltra fabric.

It’s smart protection and construction result is a jacket that packs down very small – which will surprise you with the performance it delivers. 5 different fabrics are used in the construction; including feather light embossed fabric on the front -Checking ALL wind and Ripstop Ultra on the rear.  The Black, full-length sides panels are four-way stretch Invent Lycra, providing freedom of movement while keeping the garment fitted close to the body. As these panels are fully breathable, they regulate the core to operate at ideal temperature.

3M provide the reflective rear highlights and you can still access the contents of your jersey pockets with two neatly placed slips. We have chosen an Offset zip as it will be worn over an ‘centered’ jersey zipper, thus avoiding doubled up zips, on top of each other.


This jacket will get you home warm- if the weather catches you out.

Packs into it own attached bag.

    I received mine today and decided to give it a test this evening. I went for Xs as I am a slim lad. Fit is ok but could be an inch longer in the front. It feels well made and very good quality. I had it on the whole ride (about an hour) even thought it didnt rain. I wouldn’t recommend to have it if riding hard as you will sweat inside but then again that is not ehat it is designed for. I would have given it 5 stars if had been an inch longer in the front. Overall happy with the purchase.

    I’ve taken this out on a couple of rides – thankfully without heavy rain but certainly cold and windy. It has performed perfectly. I was concerned about sizing but went for medium as I’m 98/99cm chest. I needn’t have worried – size is spot on but as chart says it is neat fitting (particularly at waist when zipping up). However, arm and body movement when zipped up is perfect and is not too tight, length is good for me and there is almost no flapping bar occasionally a tiny amount at the shoulders when riding. It looks great when on and is very well made. Can recommend.

    Fantastic jacket. Folds up to the size of a tube and sits nicely in my compact saddle bag beside one. I am 84kgs, 40″ chest and 34″ waist and large fits a dream.

    Another fantastic well designed product by Galibier, my arrived prompt as usual, fit a little snug, but I do need to loose a few pounds. It folds/scrunches up suitably small enough to easily fit inside your rear pocket, love the zip design and ventilation.I’m sure the product will perform just as they say, hopefully I’ll never need to use it, but I do live in England!!

    A great jacket. Wore for 60 of a 90 mile ride yesterday. Kept the chill, wind and drizzle off me whilst keeping me warm which is amazing for such a light weight jacket. Easily folds away and into jersey pocket. I’m 40-41 chest and XL is good – Snug in the waist but good room in shoulders. Highly recommend.

    Had my jacket a few weeks now and have tested it in vary conditions and types of rides (fast club runs to Audax)- it has exceeded all expectations – knew it would be good… but this good. It has kept me warm in cold conditions, dry when the weather has turned unexpectedly. Well worth the investment for such a light weight jacket, packable jacket and the sizing is spot on – I’m 64.5Kg, 5’10, size small.

    Great jacket this one, luckily it hasn’t rained yet but had this on when outside on the ferry over to Arran and it kept the wind at bay with ease. Stuck it on in a few windy moments and wasn’t sweaty despite the heat.
    Customer service is fantastic too, I had ordered the wrong size and they sent me out the right size super quick.

    Hi there,

    Just to report to you that I was delighted to have my VentUltra jacket on my climbing of Mont Ventoux recently. It worked out extremely well an d I would highly recommend it, both for the climb in the cool early morning and of course the descents. I could not complain about it in any way. A group of use went and did the Cingles de Mont Ventoux.

    What an epic day.

    PS I also wore my Galibier socks on the day.
    Best regards and thanks for your wonderful cycling apparel.

    I wore it on a recent MTB trip in Morocco when the weather was very cold and windy up to 2200 metres. It worked perfectly over a merino thermal and a Galibier long sleeve jersey. Brilliant too just to slip on when the weather got warmer and we stopped for photos. Simply wonderful kit.

    This jacket is much like it’s fruit lookalike.Its a cool vibrant orange colour,it packs down to the size of an orange & when you peel it open it is super sweet.The fabric is similar to pertex but less than half the price.It has a well thought out design with stretchy material where it’s needed & the off centre zip makes it comfy around the neck.Wind & light showers are handled comfortably & it’s super light.Im 6ft 1” & 80 bags of sugar & the large fits lovely.All round it’s a great wee orange jacket:)

    Fantastic jacket, packs up tiny,bright colour and stands out from day glow yellow. Wore it for 65 miles in Welsh drizzle never to hot or to cold and not one bit of rain penetrated anywhere. The skits on the back so you reach your jersey pockets great feature. Can’t praise this jacket enough
