Fit is everything.
Contrary to common ideologies, the strong don't always survive -- sometimes fortune favors the well-prepared. And if you're donning the Giordana Fusion Men's Jacket this winter, this will be you. Combining a legendary, anatomic cut with a well-planned, deliberate fabric selection, the Fusion jacket will keep you riding comfortably through the drudgery of winter.
Giordana constructed the Fusion jacket from the multi-layer Corsa fabric. Comprised of three layers, Corsa starts with a wind-resistant outer-layer. Both smooth and similar in texture to softshell, the outer-layer acts as a barrier between you and frigid winds. Situated between the inner-lining and shell is a WindTex membrane. While WindTex does aid in wind-protection, contrary to its name, the primary role of WindTex in Corsa is as a water repellent. The thin layer blocks seepage from the shell, keeping the skin dry without obstructing the transfer of vapor and sweat. Against the skin, Corsa uses a high-loft, soft-brushed material to both insulate and wick away moisture. It works hand-in-hand with the cut in order to capture air above the skin. However, it draws perspiration out to the surface of the jacket in order to maintain a consistent internal temperature. Altogether, the material provides complete protection from the wind, water, and cold.
And while the fabrics of the Fusion jacket are superb, the fit is what makes it Giordana. As Giordana puts it, the Fusion is simple without being basic. It features a slim cut that guarantees an ideal insulation. And to make certain that you have a full freedom of movement in or out of the saddle, the Fusion uses a multi-panel, cycling specific construction. Further aiding the cut are the addition of stretch panels along the ribs. Not only providing a malleable shape to the jacket, the stretch panels are also highly breathable and contribute to the jacket's thermo-regulation. The rear hem of the Fusion has also been elongated to ensure protection from wheel-spray or rainfall when your're stretched over the hoods.
To keep everything in place, the Fusion jacket has an elastic gripper along the waist. Giordana also included a full-length zipper that's been backed by a wind-resistant flap. Other accoutrement include three rear pockets and reflective elements throughout the jacket for extra visibility in low-light conditions.
The Giordana Fusion Men's Jacket is available in the colors Black/black, Fluorescent Yellow/black, and Red/black. It also comes in six sizes from Small to XXX-Large.
