Lightweight but still cosy
I have been looking for a gilet for a while but most are too bulky, afterall if it was that cold I'd wear a coat.
I spied the Gily Gilet whilst making some returns to my local store. I tried it on and couldn't leave without it. It is just what I was looking for: lightweight yet warm - perfect for autumn mornings.
And I can confirm that it is definitely showerproof having been caught in the rain on the school run the other day!

Very lightweight Gilet.
Maybe I am unique in wanting a gilet that would keep me warm. For me, this is the most important aspect of a gilet and why I sometimes slip and use the term "body warmer" instead! This is certainly not a "body warmer" unless there is a thick wooly jumper underneath. If you are happy to layer then you'll be absolutely fine. The gilet comes with a little bag that you can scrunch it into so it's a Pac-a-gilet! However, on a positive note, the colour is true to the photos. The sizing is accurate. I wear a 10 usually and I could easily wear a jumper under this size 10 gilet. The shape is also nice and neat. Unfortunately, sending it back as I wear a gilet when I go walking in order to keep cosy and this would certainly only offer minimal protection against the cold. Maybe it would be ideal as a summer gilet?

Perfect weight to go into Autumn
Loving this little jacket. Already worn it with jeans and short denim skirt but looks good with beige chino's too.
