If there was one piece of under-rated cycling apparel, I'd say hands down it was the gilet. While the waistcoat of the cycling world may initially seem like a 'nice to have', I'd say, without a doubt, that it is in fact a 'must have' and has, as a positive consequence earned its own special place in my jersey rear pocket set up.
