See available Cycling jackets


Show Description

The lightweight aero package might make you think it's not up to much, but Castelli's wind and water resistant vest is a beast when it comes to cutting wind and protecting against the elements. A high collar keeps wind out, and a lower-back splash guard protects from wheel spray. Temperature regulating fabric in the back keeps you comfortable regardless of the conditions.

  • Windstopper X-Lite Plus fabric on the front and shoulders offers up lightweight wind proofing and protection from the rain. Made from a blend of polyester, elastane, and synthetic fluoropolymer (PTFE).
  • Back uses Nano Flex Lite polyester and elastane for ample movement and temperature regulation.
  • Heat overlay across the lower back protects against wheel spray so you don't need to worry about a skunk tail when you're walking to the podium.
  • Vest packs up small so it can come on every ride.
  • Full-length Vislon zipper is backed with a wind flap.
  • Rear reflective trim at hem keeps you seen in low-light conditions.
  • Castelli rates this vest as best for 10-18°C.
  • Wash in cold water. No bleach, no steam ironing, dry cleaning, tumble drying, or fabric softener.

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.
