Castelli Espresso Due Jacket - $209.96

If you're looking for luxury and performance in a winter jacket, then the Castelli Espresso Due Jacket is the perfect choice. In designing the Espresso Due, Castelli paid attention to even the smallest details to create the ideal blend of performance, fit, and style.It all starts with the Windstopper X-Fast fabric used extensively throughout the jacket. Made using high-tech circular interlocking polyester, Windstopper X-Fast provides total wind protection while allowing for excellent breathability. In short, it blocks the wind while letting your sweat evaporate, keeping you dry and warm. A soft, lofty microfleece lining is essential for the insulation it provides, and it adds serious comfort. The Windstopper's natural stretch characteristics and 50 Denier outer coverage make the Espresso Due abrasion resistant and durable. The Espresso Due's breathability is further enhanced by the addition of two vertical zippers down the front of the jacket. Ever hit the summit of a long climb in cold weather only to freeze going down the other side' The Espresso's chest vents address this problem: simply unzip them while climbing to allow heat and moisture to escape, then close them while descending to once again block the wind and insulate your torso. As an added bonus, Castelli includes two more zippers extending up along the Espresso Due's wrists, offering yet another ventilation opportunity and allowing you to close the jacket around the cuffs of your gloves to create a tight, heat-protecting seal. Last but not least, a flip-up Thermoflex collar is soft and fleecy on the inside (for warmth and stretch), but treated with silicon on the outside to give the collar slight water repellency. And Thermoflex's natural elasticity enables the collar to form a snug seal around your neck to lock-in warmth while keeping out the elements.Castelli also spent a lot of time dialing-in the Espresso Due's fit. - $209.96
