In evaluating the fit of this vest, it really depends upon what you think you will use it for. We found the fit of the vest to be about right if you were wearing it over a tee shirt (not recommended on a bike, but just for the purposes of checking fit), but when zipped on over a riding jacket it is pretty snug.
Most people though will be wearing this vest over a riding jacket, so you’ll have to get one size larger in this vest to make that work.
Our Two Cents
The REV’IT! Athos Air 2 vest is designed so that you can wear this over protective clothing to increase your visibility in the day or at night. A lot of riding gear is fairly tame in styling… and actually a lot of it is either grey or black, none of which is particularly visible. So if you own gear like this and you want to be seen, then this Athos Air 2 vest would be just the thing. It’s a mostly mesh style to permit air to flow through, so it won’t hinder the function of a mesh style much if your intent is to use it in summer. As you can see from the pictures, the day time visibility is there by virtue of the tennis ball color, but there are also LARGE strips of reflective material so you can be seen at night as well. Take the “Images” link above and you’ll see some night shots we took in our studio to show off how well that works. When not in use, the vest stores in its own nifty stuff sack about the size of a Chipotle burrito. Neat! A really great product for safety and worth the money. If it’s working, you’ll never know it. :: Paul, 10-05-15
Manufacturer’s notes: A design upgrade to Athos Air 2 means that the functional features and product purpose remain the same, but features an improved fit, upgraded heavy duty YKK zippers, and 3M™ Scotchlite™ reflective tape. The front and back panels are made of fully perforated PWR | shell mesh EN471 certified fabric. Stretch panels at the side ensure that the Athos Air vest fits easily over any jacket in the REV’IT! collection.
