Women’s Vest


Ambassador Jess Gray appreciates the versatility of the Vest: “The Vest has a simple, no fuss design. It is super lightweight and does a great job of keeping me cool on hot days or when I am racing. I tend to sweat quite heavily and I find on the long ultras as the sun starts to go down in the later stages of a race, a soaking wet top can chill me. But the fabric in this top seems to transform from keeping me cool to keeping warm without any problems.”

That’s all down to the unique blend of our MERINO + CARBON with 37.5® Technology that was developed to help maintain a constant temperature for athletes. When we developed this fabric, we knew it needed to include a large percentage of superfine Merino wool as this is the best fibre for keeping you cool in the summer but warm in the winter. Blended with carbon, this unique material wicks sweat ten times faster than pure Merino, providing the ultimate fabric in all climates.

    Fits beautifully and even on the hottest runs feels great. Washes well and wears even better!

  2. Catherine

    This vest has more of a snug fit than the Jersey in the same size. Feels like a second skin. Recently tested on sprint day in hot weather and I remained cool and comfortable. Sweat is wicked away quite quickly. Simple, stylish, and high performance. All a great fit for race day.

    I now own two of these vest tops (red & grey marl) as I love them so much. The fit comes up snug so I’d recommend ordering a size up. The shape is great, a good length and not to low at the front but still very feminine. It wear it for running and rowing and it does the job for both extremely well. I train a lot and am pleased to report it keeps it’s shape too.

  4. Jo Sleath

    Trialed this vest on a 12 mile run. Kept me warm/cool, very comfortable indeed. The first vest that hasn’t constantly ridden up despite being a snug fit! Hung it up overnight and no odour whatsoever! Amazed! Looks like I’ve found the perfect vest for my 24 hour relay next week, teamed with matching hoody overnight! Excellent customer service and communication too.

  5. Angela White

    Excellent fit, and good length which means it doesn’t ride up – a high performance vest ideal for both training and race day runs. Washes well and even after several washes still looks like new – I’ve bought a second one as I love my first so much.

    AMAZING!!! I got given this as a Birthday Present and
    absolutely love It.
    Washes really well and keeps it’s shape.
    Only worn in warm weather so far but it does a great job of keeping me cool and dries really quickly.

    I’m an Ultra Runner and PT and Fitness Coach. I bought this top to wear when I teach group fitness classes. I’ve a few ashmei items and I’m really happy with those but wanted the vest to try out during the hot Summer months.
    I wasn’t disappointed. It fits fairly snug but I like that, it doesn’t leave any nasty odours and it certainly doesn’t need washing after each use like all my other workout tops. Its kept its colour well (red one). I recently finished T184 and debated as to carry it as a spare top. With my pack for T184 it risked damaging the top (in my eyes) so I didn’t want to risk it as I do love the top. Ashmei is a little more expensive but it is quality kit that lasts so in the long run, it’ll last you longer.

    Amazing fabric!! love it!
    The design of the rear side of the vest I found was more inspired than the front – love the black stripe down the back and the place for the gels, also liked the cut of the arms at the back
    I liked the contrasting colours of the borders of the sleeves and neck.
    I really liked overall the feel of quality and design – classic and classy. You feel as though you are wearing a product that will last a few seasons.

    Superb! I am a very fussy gym clothes wearer. I am never satisfied – HOWEVER – I ordered this top and am so delighted. Well worth the ££

    I already have this vest top in red, which I bought at full price. Couldn’t resist buying some more of them in the sale. So I’ve today, received in the post – thanks to Hester, another red and a black one too – which are lovely. These are designed for women – very flattering, and the arm holes aren’t baggy – which just adds to the great fit. I wore my first red one to run the Cardiff Half Marathon last year – and it performed well in the wet weather, didn’t ride up and I didn’t feel that I had to adjust it during my run + – no odour the next day. A perfect vest – which I’ll now enjoy being the owner of three of them!

    I absolutely love this top. I was recommended it by a friend. I will now certainly never look past ashmei! Well worth the money. Will definitely be stocking up on more running clothing by ashmei!

    Love this vest…. just bought a second one in the sale – can use it all year round. Washes well and fits really well round the arm holes. Even used a hydration pack during the summer and got no chaff on my shoulders! Superb.

  13. Rated 5 out of 5


    Agree with all of the other reviews- I owned one and bought the second in sale. It is very pricey, but in the sale is a good deal. They are snug which I like, and I’m just more impressed by the temperature regulation that it offers vs any other vest I own. It washes well too. Love Ashmei service and communication; only wish I could afford more of the kit.

ashmei jerseys have an athletic cut. The fit is not skin tight but slimmer than our jackets and are made from stretchy material so will adapt to your body.
