For years, function followed form when looking for high-visibility and reflective wear. Further, selection of reflective cycling gear often was limited to ill-fitting gear that was misplaced on when someone was looking to for performance-oriented gear. This happens no longer with the Giro Women’s Chrono Expert Reflective Wind Jacket, which takes the quality women’s-specific fit and materials of a top-quality jacket and adds a distinctive reflective design for improved safety when the roads get dark.
The Giro Women’s Chrono Expert line of apparel might not be the very best Giro has to offer, but it is certainly high quality kit that feels great on the bike. The Chrono Expert Reflective Wind Jacket starts with a durable two-way stretch material on the back and front to accentuate a form-fitting cut. The vest is lightweight and packable – it even comes with a pack sack! – and designed to be highly wind-resistant. The upper back is perforated for improved breathability, while an elastic hem keeps the vest in place. Finally, the vest receives a women’s specific cut to eliminate potential flapping in the wind.
The key here is reflectivity – front, back, and sides are reflective with a jaguar-like print that looks great during the day, but even better at night. Bright, bold, and impactful, the Giro Women’s Chrono Expert Reflective line of apparel has never been better. Further, each jacket offers UPF 50+ UV protection, and a DWR water repellant covering to allow the jacket to be used as wind protection as well as mild rain protection.
The Giro Women’s Chrono Expert Reflective Wind Jacket is form-fitting, and comes in five sizes (XS-XL).
