Our lightest vest yet (only 88 grams in a size medium), the Divide is the ideal packable piece for unexpected changes in the weather or chilly mountain descents.
Due to its location next to highest mountains in the Continental Divide, the Front Range of Colorado often experiences severe wind gusts. It's a natural phenomenon as air rapidly descends over the crest of the Rocky Mountains. It was for these conditions that we developed and named the Divide Jacket and Vest.
The Divide instantly became my go to vest for any ride. It’s packability made it an easy decision to bring along for chilly morning starts and ride into the mountains. My ultimate test was riding down Trail Ridge Road, the highest continuous road in North America topping out at 11,700 ft., in a small snow/hail storm. I packed the Divide in my back pocket knowing the descent would be a chilly one with a slight chance of rain. What I did not expect was the snow/hail that pelted me for a solid 15 minutes as I descended back down to the trees. While my cheeks stung and hands felt the bite, my core stayed surprisingly warm and I never got that deep in your core chill."

I love this item! Bought a second one. Very light and packs well. Surprisingly keeps you warm despite it being so light. High collar is great too. Unzip when you want the breeze. I'm 5'8" 150 and I bought a Medium. Some say to size up... I felt mine was just right.
As a lightweight windbreaker it’s very practical and easy to tuck away. Love the two-way zipper for easy access to rear pockets or extra ventilation.
The quality of this wind vest is excellent. I am 5’10 and weigh 180 lbs. Size large fits great and packs easily during rides. Another great Pactimo product!
Fits well and doesn’t flap at all in the wind. Love the dual direction zip.
Love the product, and all pactimo gear, I wish there were pockets on the back of the vest, but for the price, it’s fantastic
Very lightweight but provides exceptional results. I did have to swap it out as the XL was very tight (6"4" 175) and was quickly replaced with a XXL
Fits great and runs true to size. Love the easy sliding two way zipper. All vest should have two way zips to get into jersey pockets. They mesh back is nice an breathable but is not too light or seem like it will snag and tear easily. Packs down nice and small into a jersey pocket when its time to take it off.
The Divide wind vest is a great addition to my cycling wardrobe and really adds that needed extra layer of protection on windy days when paired with a long sleeve jersey. The vest can be easily stored in your back pocket when the weather changes during the ride and you need to add or remove a layer. As with all Pactimo kit, the quality is second to none.
Practically disappears in your jersey pocket, in a good way!
I was looking for a close fitting and hi vis wind vest for days when I need just a little more but not my full regular vest. This hits the spot.
Pactimo has never failed to supply me with quality cycling clothes and the Divide wind vest is no exception perfect for these cool spring mornings and extremely lite to pack away in your jersey pocket when the temps start to climb. Luckily for me I got this when it was on sale and liked it so much I bought three.
Great fitting vest. Zip opens from both ends for ventilation and access to jersey pockets. Mesh back prevents overheating. Good reflectivity all round. Full recommended for drop bar pursuits, you might want more shoulder width coverage up front with a wide flat-bar.
very good experience great product and great fit.
This is an absolutely wonderful cool weather accessory. It completely blocks the cool wind from the front of your torso but allows your back to breath. It is lightweight and easily folds up and fits into your jersey pockets.
Been using it on every ride this chilly winter (in LA). Fits great, does not flap around at all. Breathes well too so I don’t get wet.
