PRODUCT: Moose Racing’s XC-1 vest is a lightweight garment made from a tech-stretch shell fabric that is water and wind-resistant. It has four pockets, two zippered hand pockets, one chest pocket and an interior pocket. The inside of the vest uses a polyester mesh liner, a soft collar and comes in sizes small to XXXL.

OUR TAKE: Despite living in SoCal where the weather is mild, we wear a vest about 90 percent of the time when venturing off-road. There are several reasons: Number one being that it allows us to carry a goggle cloth, cell phone and snacks on the ride. Number two is comfort. A vest allows full arm movement and offers protection from the cold for our core, whereas a jacket limits mobility and can be stifling, even if it is well vented.

The Moose Racing XC-1 vest is quite the deal at $59.95. The cell phone chest pocket is perfect for an iPhone. The YKK zippers are excellent. The fit is not too tight, and the durability is superb. The cut is just below the waistline, and the weight is negligible. It only comes in black.

Overall, the Moose Racing XC-1 vest is a staff favorite and gets top marks for fit, comfort and price!
