Chrome Warm Work Shirt Review
Chrome’s Warm Vest is fully reversible and comes in black on one side and rust orange on the other side. This vest will be great for my daily bicycle commute across the city in the spring and fall, thanks to a subtle reflective stripe along the zipper and a pocket along the back.
The Warm Vest by Chrome will also fold over onto itself and fit into this pocket making it easy to stow. The Vest is lightweight, stylish and well built.
When I first started using the Warm Vest I overheated because I wore it underneath a sweatshirt, which was under my ski shell. This works great on really cold days, but is not needed on average days. Once I realized that the Warm Vest replaces the sweatshirt, I was warm comfortable and had a better range of motion.
Since then I have not looked back, the Warm Vest by Chrome has been one of my most important pieces of gear this winter. I forgot it one day and instantly realized how bulky my sweatshirt feels under my ski shell.
Chrome also makes a sleeved version of the Warm Vest called the Chrome Warm Work Shirt, which is perfect for colder climates. Or Hipsters with chicken arms , need to drink more PBR to bulk up those arms guys.

I like that the Vest is revisable, I will use the Orange side when biking at night, it is great the Orange side is still visible without being an obnoxious neon color. I like that the vest can pack down and be used as pillow and is easily packable, but overall I like the style and warmth the best.
Sure everyone makes great insulated vests and Nano puffy jackets these days, but the other guys didn’t take the time to apply it to Biking too. That is why you should get the Chrome Warm Vest instead of the other brand!
