The Second Light Vest is built for the power user who needs light and fast resistance to all of the elements—wet to windy—during long runs and rides. Meridian™ stretch mini-rip with a DWR finish sheds weather, while reflective piping increases roadside visibility at dawn or dusk. A double drop-in back pocket balances the left/right lumbar load and includes a security zip to prevent unexpected loss on the descent. The piece packs small into its own pocket for easy stashing and stowing on trail runs or road rides.
Meridian™️ is a 20 denier mini-ripstop nylon with mechanical stretch by construction. This extremely lightweight fabric provides excellent wind resistance and the DWR coating resists weather.
