Mavic Vision H20 Vest review

Rainproof, windproof and coming with 360° visibility, could the Mavic Vision H20 Vest be the most technically advanced gilet out there?

Cycling Weekly Verdict

Rain and windproof and exceptional 360° visibility makes the Mavic Vision H20 Vest an incredibly useful piece of cycling apparel that, while happily fitting in a rear pocket for a just-in-case moment, fits so well that it can easily be worn over a race jersey for no aero penalty. A great addition to any cyclist's wardrobe.

Best known for its wheels, especially the Mavic Ksyriums, Mavic actually now has close to 10 years of apparel manufacturing experience, developing a wealth of technical knowhow, which it applied to the full when it launched the £900 Comete Ultimate road shoe earlier this year.

The Mavic Vision H20 Vest certainly gains from the depth of knowledge acquired over the years and is arguably the most technical gilet on the market.
