The dm Chpt. /// 1.71 Body Warmer, this might be a slightly confusing name for what is a lightweight packable windproof and water resistant gilet. We will let David explain the name later on. What we do have here is a gilet with a massive amount of wind and rain protection with a gloriously high (8cm) collar that seals out the elements. Designed to be worn over a jersey the 1.71 features two lightweight rear pockets for mid ride snacks, we recommend you keep your phone and pump in your jersey pockets.
David Millar introducing the Chpt. /// 1.71 Body Warmer
Body Warmer - That's what we call these in the UK. Well, that's what I used to call them till I became a cyclist and started calling them gilets. One of the first rules I learnt as a pro was to never leave home without one; it was as important as spare tubes and a multi-tool.

In 2015, the Chpt3 project provided the newly-retired David Millar, and designer Richard Pearce, with the opportunity to work alongside long-time sponsors to create something truly different and exclusive. A collaboration with Castelli launched the brand; a collection of lovingly designed cycling garments that fuse the latest material technology with a sartorial elegance opposed to the billboard stylings of the peloton. The result is the ultimate in both performance cyclewear and coffee-stop chic.
