Castelli Confronto W Jacket - Women's



Show Description

Check this out. It's hard-shell rain protection that breathes and stretches like a soft shell. It's totally waterproof. And such certainty will suit riders who are going to ride through wet weather, on mountain roads, or into the changeable conditions of a Canadian "spring."

  • Torrent 2-layer stretch polyester is tested for waterproofness and vapour permeability.
  • Fully mesh lined so the material slides rather than sticks on your inner layers.
  • High collar covers the back of your neck.
  • Waterproof zipper.
  • Selective external seam taping to keep wetness from working its way inside.
  • Eye-catching reflective details.

Waterproof garments use waterproof-breathable technologies and are fully seam-taped. Water-resistant garments use waterproof-breathable technologies but their seams are not taped. Water-resistant garments repel water and protect against wind but are not made of waterproof fabric.

Waterproof with fully taped seams

A windproof garment does not allow any air to permeate the fabric. A garment with windproof panels has panels of fabric that are totally windproof, but the rest of the garment may not be windproof. A wind-resistant garment resists some wind, but not as much as a garment that is windproof.

Length Hip-length
