Raddoppia 2 Jacket
Warm, comfortable, and reflective, the Raddoppia is Castelli's workhorse cycling jacket for the cold temperatures and diminished daylight of winter. Windstopper fabric on the front and back keeps the wind out and the heat in, while the thermal side panels let excess moisture escape so you don't get clammy when tough climbs lead to frigid descents.

Snug, but works very well.
- Runs small
- Size Bought
- 6` 3"
- 180 lbs
Agonized over the sizing and you should to. I wear mostly medium shirts, but had to run an XL jacket. With a very thin base layer and a moderate thermal layer underneath, there is 'just' enough room for me to fit in this jacket. It feels quite snug to walk around in, but disappears when riding on the bike. Sleeves are long enough for my long gangly arms, but it's better to remove my smartwatch to don/doff this jacket as the sleeves are tight. I ride year round and may have to layer over this jacket if we get any actual sub-freezing conditions. Actual on-bike performance has been great thus far! Above noted layering good for upper 30's, high wind/wind chill, etc. while on 5+ road rides.

Warm, snug fit, but sizing an issue
- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Ignore the size chart given for this product. It is a warm jacket with a nice lining, and weatherproof outer. However, I had to order XXL for it to fit. In contractor gear, I am sometimes an M. In kayaking/rowing racing gear an L or XL. Apparently in cycle racing gear from Italy, an XXL. For my 41 inch chest the XL was both too tight, and too short. It is a body hugging fit, so will work only in those situations where you need this. I use my cycling gear also for cross-country skiing, where a body fit is efficient (say, for a time trial). I do like the warmth, weather proofing, and range of colors. It is not for everyone though, make sure you can return, if necessary.
