Meet the Ros (Rain or shine) cycling jacket that’s true to its name. Supportive in cold weather, this windproof, water-resistant layer seals out the elements. Inside, a thermal layer boosts warmth. Dual zippers are a real game changer: close just the interior when you need some venting, zip up the outer layer when you need extra protection going downhill.
- Gore Windstopper® 105 LLR fabric provides great wind protection, breathability plus moderate waterproofness.
- Sealed seams keep you dry in critical areas.
- Sewn-in stretch fleece inner insulation has its own zip.
- Stretch fabrics and advanced patterning provide a close-to-body fit in the ride position.
- Waterproof YKK Vislon external zipper has a partial storm flap to keep out rain.
- Back vent lets you vent heat on big climbs.
- Raw edge wrist cuffs interface with gloves so there's no gaps to let in wind.
- Silicone gripper hem lies flat and won't ride up.
- 3 rear pockets have laser-cut drain holes.
- Front pocket has a waterproof zip.
- Castelli recommends this jacket as best for temperatures between -5 and +10°C.

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 critically 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.
Durable water repellency
Usually referred to as DWR. A treatment made to fabrics that causes water to bead and run off instead of soaking through.
