Riders blessed with stunning alpine passes and winding country roads are often at the whim of Mother Nature's volatile demeanor. One minute it's beaming pleasant sunshine and the next it's pouring rain, with whipping winds stealing precious body heat. Protecting you from unpredictable weather patterns, the Nalini Men's Light Packable Wind Jacket repels passing showers and bone-chilling breezes in a refined Italian design. Its stealth aesthetic flies under the radar, especially compared to jackets with loud graphics and bright color schemes. However, there's still plenty of visibility at night, thanks to generous use of reflective details along the hem, front pocket, and rear logo.
Constructed primarily with Nalini's Air Moa fabric, the Light Packable Wind Jacket does just what its name suggests by fending off gusty drafts and crisp morning breezes without being bulky or soaking you in perspiration. A true testament to its packability, the jacket comes with a carrying pouch that's handy for stuffing in your rear jersey pocket. Moving on the rest of the jacket, the stretchable mesh insert along the upper back improves flex and breathability. And to repel passing showers and quick-moving storms, the Moa Manto W.R.T. beads off moisture before it can soak you to the core. This treatment also prevents dirt and oil build-up for maximum freshness on the road.
Optimizing flexibility, raglan-cut sleeves promote full range of motion while the rest of the jacket exhibits a regular fit that's oriented for riding comfortably. The dropped rear hem adds coverage from road spray and passing showers, especially when you're in the drops. The elasticized waistband remains secure without riding up or migrating. Other functional design features include a generously sized zippered pocket and a high collar for added coverage on blustery rides.
