When a column of brooding clouds threatens your Saturday morning ride, you can't just reach for any old rain jacket "just in case." Whether you've learned from experience or not, we can assure you that the qualities that make a good general use rain jacket are not the same as those that matter on the bike. Rather than spending your ride clammy and overheating under a stiff, unyielding shell, reach for the Castelli Superleggera Jacket the next time the skies make you uneasy.
Unlike that rain shell in your closet, the Superleggera easily packs away into a small saddle pack if stormy clouds blow over and the sun comes back out, but its wind- and water-resistant fabric are up to the task of staving off bad weather while maintaining breathability. Castelli wisely adds a completely waterproof panel of fabric at the back of the jacket as well, which won't soak through when you're dealing with wheel spray and wet roads for miles on end.

- I returned this product before using it
- Size Bought:
- 5' 7"
This jacket runs quite small for a large. I am 5"7" and 160 lbs and this large will not fit my chest. Also my hands struggled to go through the sleeves. It appears to be of reasonable quality, very light for packing way when needed.
