Product description

Season : AW20
Code : 061W.2.
Weight : 0KG

The new Women's Adventure Insulation Cycling Vest from Q36.5, is a super low volume companion for a range of conditions and is particularly useful in unpredictable weather. Developed specifcally for more adventurous forays off the beaten track, the Adventure Vest couples enhanced wind proof capabilities with excellent thermal protection in a single design that weighs in at just 115g and that packs away easily when not required.

The outer layer is made using a high density, 4-way stretch, feather-light woven fabric with a durable water repellent treatment and despite it's low bulk and weight, delivers functional protection from rian, wind and trail spray.
The inner layer is constructed from a new version of the company's UF Air Insulation fabric, originally used in the Teddy Berry base layer. This knitted jacquard brushed fabric is now created from a blend of micropolyester which increases the thermal insulation of the predecessor while still keeping weight o a minimum. It creates a layer of warm air next to the skin, allowing for a high absorption/emission rate of moisture before it has time to change into sweat caused by condensation which keeps you drier on the inside for longer.

Like much of their range - and specifically the Wolf series - light, invisible mesh pockets with a floral textured material pattern and reflective inserts adorn the back and are big enough to carry your essentials while a high hermetic collar completes the sartorial construction to keep you protected from the wind.

Like all gilets, this is a “must-have” in your pocket at all times and is suitable for slower, longer winter road training rides or gravel and adventure rides off-road. It allows you to comfortably discover different terrains in all conditions, keeping you protected without compromising your comfort.

Available in both Men's and Women's cuts and in Olive Green or Black.

Size Guide

We recommend purchasing and wearing your Q36.5 garment ‘true to size’ - if you are usually a Medium, purchase a Medium!

Exceptions to this are rare but recent style and cut changes to the patterned jerseys in the Q36.5 range have yielded some minor size changes. The original patterned R1 jerseys (eg Vaccaboia) that featured a Raglan sleeve cut, have now evolved into the G1 that features a new anatomical pre-shaped sleeve design for superior ergonomics. While the fit overall is improved, these G1 jerseys I find to be slightly shorter and a smidge tighter. If you are between sizes or already borderline on a size (close to it being too small), you may wish to size up one. Similarly, if you are not quite 'racing snake' and the size chart suggests you are a particular size - if you are close to the upper most extreme of that measure - you may wish to size up (it's how it works for me!)

The new R2 Jersey range is marginally more accommodating than the G1 but in most cases not enough to warrant a change in size - we recommend sticking to your 'normal' jersey sizing.

When trying on a Q36.5 garment for the first time please keep in mind that cut and fit is designed for on the bike comfort and performance and the user may feel a very minor degree of strain (eg. in the shoulder and chest area of the jersey or the bib short braces) when standing upright. When on the bicycle in a riding position this feeling will literally disappear and be replaced by excellent ease of movement, comfort and stability.

Buyers Guide

The new Orbea Orca line-up is quite possibly the most balanced range of road bikes available. Thanks to the Orca's ability to deliver a complete ride that yields agile handling akin to most all-out lightweight premium race bikes - all the while being close in weight to dedicated climbing bikes, as stiff as many top level sprint machines and as comfortable as any endurance bike. Orcas deliver this rounded performance with plenty of tyre clearance for the roughest of surfaces, including forays onto dirt or gravel.

The Orca sits right alongside the Orca Aero in the Orbea range range; borrowing many of its aero features and much of its bottom bracket stiffness for power transfer, but with lower weight, greater levels of comfort and larger tyre clearances.

The Orca ride feel is built on the core concept that a comfortbale rider remains a fresher rider. This principle delivers a bike which - as a consequence - leads to greater speed, over longer distances, and allows for riding over rougher roads, all while keeping you performing at your best.

On top of the ride quality and performance elements, the Orbea Orca is both practical and more customisable than any competitor's bike – with custom paint at no extra cost on most models.

The Orbea Orca aims to be the ultimate bike for all performance-minded riders that are looking to take on a full range of real world riding conditions. Whether amateur or competing in the upper echelons of the sport; on the flat or up in the mountains; on short, hard efforts or all-day epics, on any surface that qualifies as a road. Employing the latest developments in road bike technology Orbea have created a stunning all-round package for real-world riders.

The Range

The Orca is available in three variants, all sharing the same geometry and design philosiophy. Each features differening carbon tubing types, subtly different aero profiling, and different component options; offering a range of price points to meet all budgets, with slightly different riding characteristics to meet different rider priorities.


The Orca’s frame is constructed from high modulus Orca OMR carbon fibre, while the fork has OMR carbon fibre blades bonded to a strong alloy steerer. The frame has slightly thicker more resilient tube walls than the superlight Orca Limited, making it a little more resistant to stone chips and daily commuting abuses with a resiliance needed for regular riders that aren't necessarily looking to race. With clearance for tyres up to 35mm, the frameset offers true all-road capability.

The handlebars and stem feature wind-cheating internal cable routing, while the seatpost has a standard 27.2mm round section, offering great reliability, practicality and easy upgrade options.

The all-new Orca is 10% more compliant than the previous Orca OMR Team and far stiffer in the power transfer areas, as well as lighter, than the 2020 Orca OME (standard modulus) frameset.


With exactly the same frame construction as the Orca, the Team version benefits from a full carbon fork for lighter weight and improved responsiveness. The new Orca Team offers 5% lower weight than the previous Orca OMR, with the same lateral stiffness for optimal power transfer, and vertical compliance - and by extension comfort - increased by up to 10%.

The component levels are a little higher than in the standard Orca, again offering lower weights and extra refinement.

Full custom paint is a no-cost-option on all ORCA TEAM models, using Orbea’s easy to use MyO program which we are happy to guide you through. MyO also allows you to change some of the components to dial in the bike specification for your specific riding requirements


The Orca Limited’s frame and fork are constructed from Ultra High Modulus OMX carbon fibres for lower weight. The finer, less elastic fibres also add more stiffness to key areas of the frame for optimum responsiveness, with only the slightest reduction in vertical compliance. The Orca Limited can accommodate, and has been optimised for tyres up to 32mm, delivering high comfort levels in an all-out performance machine.

Components are at the premium level, and the seatpost moves to a proprietary truncated aerofoil shape. The frame tubing profiles also offer enhanced aerodynamics over the OMR models, with the fork being more fully aero-integrated into the downtube.

As with the Orca Team, full custom MyO paint is a no-cost option on all Limited models.
