The Maglia Nera windproof vest is the ultimate bit of versatile kit. Perfect for the Northern European weather, you won't want to leave the house without it! We're thrilled to be working with our friends Attacus Custom on the newly designed La Maglia Nera 2.0 kit, and we know you're going to love it.
Why 'Maglia Nera', you ask? At the Giro d'Italia the last placed rider is awarded the 'Maglia Nera' (black jersey) for finishing in last place. It's a huge honour, meaning they haven't had to drop out or abandon the race. It is our core philosophy that no one is ever dropped or left behind, even if you are in last place or at the back of the group! Somehow, the 'Maglia Nera' felt right as the name of our club kit!
This pre-order closes on Monday 24th August at 9AM UK time. All jerseys will be made to order, and are expected to arrive at Attacus HQ in 8-10 weeks after the pre-order ends. They will then be posted via Royal Mail First Class inside the UK or Royal Mail International Tracked outside of the UK. Delivery times will vary depending on location.

“Whether you call it a vest or a gilet, this packable windproof layer is a godsend for spring and autumn when temperatures can vary from hour to hour. The front is made with a lightweight, windproof fabric which contains a membrane barrier that repels cold air and water, while allowing warm air to continue circulating around your core. The back is made of a lightweight stretch mesh which helps with pocket access as well as ventilation. It’s a great piece of kit to stick in your jersey pocket and call on when the temperature drops.”

While we do our best to accurately display the true colours of our garments in all photography on our website, sometimes the actual colour may vary in real life. This is because every computer/phone monitor has a different capability to display colours, and that everyone sees these colours differently.

Men's Size Guide
The technical fabrics in this vest are designed for movement, and will naturally stretch. It's why you may find you fit into more than one size bracket. So to help you find the best fit for you, we recommend you follow the steps below.
HOW TO MEASURE UP
- Start by measuring your chest all the way around at the fullest part. Then use this number to see which size options you fall into from our size charts below.
- Use the number in the torso column to work out how each size will fit on you, and make sure you're happy with the length.
- Consider how you want your kit to fit. Do you like it quite close fitting? Or prefer it a little looser? Make sure your chosen size reflects how you like to wear it.
