We're fairly certain that the peace of mind you'll get from having the Louis Garneau Nova Women's Vest along with you on your training rides is worth its reasonable price. Think of a time when it was so nice outside you didn't feel the need to check the weather report before you left -- and then the sky opened up an hour or so into your out-and-back spin. Or, recall a ride where you were feeling so good that you couldn't resist staying out past sundown, and then had to face a chilly, windy ride home that made you wish you hadn't been so ambitious. At times like these, a good vest is invaluable. The front of the Nova Vest is made of Diamond Air fabric, a polyester weave that's windproof, resistant to tearing, and treated with a water-repellent finish. It's also breathable, but you'll get most of your ventilation through the Light Mesh AirDry and Micromesh fabrics that make up the back of the vest. The Nova Vest has two back pockets so you don't have to dig for your stowed gear, and a zipper garage keeps the zipper tucked away nicely. Reflective piping on the back as well as reflective front and back logos ensure that you'll be seen as you push on through those came-from-nowhere storms. The Louis Garneau Nova Women's Vest comes in sizes X-Small through XX-Large and in two color options: Black/white and Bright yellow.
