Mille GT Ultraz EVO Winter Jacket

Winter training on the open roads is not just a test of your resolve, but it’s also the season to experience cycling on deserted roads and climbs whose chilled pavement and snow-lined shoulders turn away the more fragile cyclist. Assos’ Mille GT Ultraz EVO Winter Jacket insulates your core on rides such as these and protects your motivations against harsh winter climates as you churn out the base miles. Updated to add increased protection and warmth throughout the entire jacket, Assos starts with the front and upper back — which face winter head-on — and combines their triple-layered NEOS Light and RX Heavy fabrics for windproofing and water-repellency. The sleeves are fortified with the breathable yet still winter-ready, two-layer NEOS Ultra and 652.RX fabric, while the back panel uses a three-layer, winter-proof and breathable soft-shell, NEOS Medium. Assos looks at the entire system as combining the highest performing materials to meet the required goals of keeping you warm and protected as you train.

Assos uses targeted stitch patterns to ensure a full range of motion in the riding positions, while the center-weighted pockets are held tight and stabilized for comfort. The Tripe Ramp pockets themselves create “lids” over your cargo to add security and peace of mind, as you don’t want to be losing your phone in deep-winter training. The full-length zip helps manage overall heat buildup, and the regular fit of the Mille GT Ultraz accommodates your favorite baselayers without adding bulk that would catch in the winds.

Not a Winter Jacket. Not Windproof.

This is Not a Jacket that Can Handle “the Coldest, Harshest Conditions.” Yes, this jacket is well made, has a variety of high-tech fabrics, looks good and feels good. However, performance wise it gets a low rating. It is at best wind resistant and not wind proof, and I was cold in temperatures below 40 degrees. I have used it 15 times in temperatures ranging from 35 to 50. Sunny and Dry. I was only warm when the temperatures were mid 40s up. I froze wearing it in cloudy grey 35 degree weather. I wore similar but different brand base layers each time. Once I used Assos Ultraz shirt, which may have been cooler than the others. A Craft undershirt with a Craft windproof long sleeve shirt worked the best. Positives: Looks and feels great. Obviously well made. Fit is good. I have an XL and found it snug and not overly tight. (5’10”, 165 lbs, 42” chest.) The zipper fob is large, which makes it easier to manipulate with gloves. Negatives: This is not a winter jacket. Supposedly this jacket is meant to keep you warm in the coldest harshest conditions. Not for me. Yes, I know the fabrics are super tech, but cool names aside, the jacket is not wind proof. I could feel cool/cold air flowing through my chest constantly, and my shoulders felt cool as well. After two of the rides, my sternum was cold to the touch. The attached neck gaiter is just goofy. It’s a bit awkward, and really doesn’t do that much. Not really a huge negative, but certainly not a positive. I give this jacket a lower rating because, to me, it’s not what it was advertised to be: a jacket that can handle “the coldest, harshest winter conditions.” It is not even close. It is however, a very nice spring/fall jacket with a very limited temperature range.

If the jacket has the attached neck gaitor, it is not the new, Evo version of this jacket. The older, non Evo version has an RX back panel which is not wind proof. That is by design, and has been the way Assos makes its winter jackets until now; the Evo is technically windproof even on the back now. As windproof as a Gore Tex soft shell? Probably not, but I don't own an Evo (yet)...

How come you have all this nice stuff just for men???? Do you believe Women don't want to go out on the bike in the winter ? I am really getting ticked off at receiving emails like this ! Sent these ads to men Theres Geering, a woman road rider (Peter is my husband)

Height 5’3” Weight 117 lbs Theres Geering, absolutely agree. I have to buy Assos’ men small to get the quality and colors I prefer. Linda, Ed’s wife.

Ok, first and foremost - it's warm. Started my first ride in it this morning at 37 degrees with a 32 degree wind chill. Only a light merino LS base layer underneath. 20 minutes in, and I had to pull the zipper down just a bit to allow some cold air in. To be honest, at this temp I may actually just wear a short sleeve base layer and see how the jacket handles it. As far as the fit goes, if you're a medium in everything else, get a medium. It's snug of course, but pretty much disappears on the bike. I'm 5'8, 155lbs with maybe a 38 chest if that helps. The sleeves are pretty cool - they're actually two piece as the warm, soft material isn't sewn to the outer windproof layer, so you can tuck the under layer into your gloves and pull the outer cuff over the top. I liked this feature. A couple of "maybe" negatives for me - first of course, is this thing is expensive. But if you're reading this pending a purchase, you've already probably swallowed that so YMMV. Second - when I got home and peeled this thing off, my base layer was pretty darn wet. Now maybe that's a function of the merino wool, a negative strike on this jacket's breathability, the fact that it really wasn't frigid out, whatever. Just figured I'd point that out if you're expecting this to keep you bone dry. It didn't. Beyond that, it kept me warm (almost too much at this temp) and I guess that's what you're looking for in a winter jacket, right? Oh one more thing - if you've read previous reviews, make sure you know that this is the "updated" version (2021?). It does not include the built in neck warmer/buff, which I was kind of looking forward to. Guess Assos decided that this wasn't worth continuing. Edit - a month in, and this is clearly the gold standard of winter jackets if you're riding in the cold. I've been down to 22F so far and this thing just shrugs it off like you're sitting on a summer beach. My upper limit before I'm just too warm in this jacket is maybe 43/44F. It's that warm but not even remotely "bulky". Assos killed it with this jacket. Think it's time to pick up the matching bib tights to see how ridiculously cold I can go....

Wow, finally a jacket that is comfortable, wind-proof and warm from 45 F down. My main issue with my other winter jackets was the wind protection, especially in the arm sections. I took this bad boy out the other day with the temp starting at around 36 F and ended around 45 F. Wind was between 12-16 MPH. I wore an Assos, long sleeved, winter skinfoil 4.4 base layer under the jacket. First 15-20 minutes of the ride, I was questioning my purchase. After an hour on the bike, I was noticing that I was comfortable and not thinking about the weather. 2 hours into my ride I was not thinking about the jacket at all (it was doing its job). Especially when I was riding straight into a head wind of 16 MPH for numerous miles. I could not feel the wind through this jacket!!!! After my three hours in the cold was up, I was contemplating buying a second jacket in the lollyRed (just joking!). This is an outstanding jacket. Once you get over the $369 price tag, everything else is great. In this instance, you get what you pay for. If you are looking for a winter jacket that will battle the cold and wind, look no further. The jacket actually does everything it claims to. I am a 51 year old, 5'10", 190 lb. weekend warrior rider. I only ride 2 times a week. Each ride is between 50-60 miles. I am in great shape, but would definitely be considered a "bigger" rider in the peloton. I usually wear an XL in all of my Assos Kit. I did go up to the XLG because I felt the XL was just a "smidge" too tight. After I wore the jacket on my first ride, I probably would have been OK with the XL, but I like the "roomier" fit of the XLG for my winter rides. I can not wait to see what the limits (cold temp) of this jacket will be. I feel that with my winter Assos skinfoil 4.4 base layer, I should be fine down to low to mid 20's F.

i just ordered and received a large Mille GT jacket ULTRAZ winter men's large. I am not large at all (5'9"/170), but the jacket is way too tight in the arms and shoulders. I usually wear medium to large regular shirts/etc, but this is not close. I'm not even sure an XL would be comfortable. Would like to know what to do.

Hey Peter, thank you for reaching out. Some of the Castelli Pieces fit a little tighter due to the materials used, as well as the intended fit. We do see riders sizing up, but before you do, I would encourage you to try the piece on in the riding position. When standing straight up, the cycling fit usually creates added tightness in the shoulder area, to allow for better comfort when actually riding! You can always try the next size up to see if that makes for a better fit, and know in doing so, that you are not the only one!
