Castelli IDRO Jacket


Triathlon Magazine Canada - - FEATURES -

Get­ting caught in the rain is never any fun, but now you can hap­pily head out for a ride when there’s a chance of rain and not have to worry about be­ing ill-pre­pared. We’re huge fans of the work­man­ship and per­for­mance qual­i­ties of Castelli’s cloth­ing and the new IDRO jacket prom­ises more of the same. The anatomic, snug fit is op­ti­mized for your rid­ing po­si­tion and won’t slow you down at all. The wa­ter-proof zip­per slides eas­ily, while elas­tic bind­ings on the cuff and hem will keep the jacket in place. There’s even a zipped open­ing on the back for easy ac­cess to pock­ets and ex­tra ven­ti­la­tion.

Where this jacket sep­a­rates it­self from other light­weight rain jack­ets is the fact that it in­cor­po­rates Gore-tex fab­ric that stops the wa­ter on the outer layer of the jacket but still pro­vides lots of air flow, so you’ll stay com­fort­able even dur­ing the hard­est of ef­forts or climbs. The Castelli en­gi­neers have even fig­ured out how to fully tape the seams of the jacket so wa­ter can’t seep through. Typ­i­cally wa­ter-re­pelling jack­ets like this are rel­a­tively bulky, but the 123 g IDRO jacket folds down to fit into half a jersey pocket, so it’s a no brainer to carry it along with you.
