FIODI BIKE vest
You are looking for a practical coat for biking or running? One that keeps your body warm but leaves your arms free to move? Our FIODI vest is perfect for you!
|Material||100% polyester + TPU|
|About the Material||
Originally developed for sportswear.
Softshell is made with multi-layered textile technology. The layers are bound together with heat press. The inner layer is soft and warm thermo (polar wool), the outer one is densely woven waterproof polyester. In the middle there is a perforated silicone membrane layer that makes the material waterproof and breathable. Does not allow rain to enter from the outside but releases moisture from inside.
Softsell water resistance: 10000 mm/H2O
This means the material will not let water through for about one hour in rain. (The length of water resistance can depend on how heavy the rain is. Please note that the seams are not waterproof.)
This coat is perfect between 10-20 degrees without a jumper. If you wear an extra layer it is good till 5-10 degrees.
|Washing and caring||While washing softshell please choose a gentle program in 30 degrees. Use liquid washnut or liquid detergent. Never use rinse aid or softener since it damages the water resistance. Always wash your coat fully zipped to protect your washing machine’s drum. We recommend low speed spinning after a wash. Ironing is usually not necessary but if it is still needed please use medium temperature with steam and a wet cloth between the iron and the coat. Without using the cloth the iron leaves a burn mark. Do not use a tumble dryer. Leave it out on fresh air instead. If you take it to a laundry service ask for PCE (Perchloroethylene) wash. Never use chemicals or bleach nor impregnating chemical or detergent.|
|Form and Function||
It has reflective strips on every side. At the front along the zipper, at the pockets and on the tightener at the back. This vest is slim fitting, it follows the body lines. In the front it goes to the hip, but is longer in the back to keep your back warm when leaning forward on the bike. There is a rubber cord at the back to tighten the vest to your waist and the back has some additional width so you can lean on to your bike comfortably. The hood is big enough to wear it with your helmet underneath but if you are not wearing one you can shorten the hood with a fold and a press button so it will not interfere with your field of vision. It has pockets outside but also hidden ones inside so you can hide your phone or your personal belongings.
|Who should wear it?||
The big collar emphasises your shoulders, the a-symmetric closing trims your waist, and the large pockets compensate the collar. So the shape helps you to achieve the desired hourglass form.
