This isn't the cost-is-no-object jacket of Castelli's pro pieces, but it comes near to then in packability and matches the waterproofing polyurethane membrane rated at 10,000 MVTR. It packs to a small size that easily fits in a jersey pocket, ready to give you full waterproof shelter if the weather should turn. Castelli have given it a high neck, a long tail and a stuff pocket for when you need to carry it.

Castelli has a rich history as one of the iconic cycling brands, primarily specialising in high end road clothing. Founded by Vittore Gianni in 1876, initially as a tailor shop in Milan, it diversified to include cycling clothing in 1910, for riders such as Alfredo Binda. In 1935 Armando Castelli joined the company, purchasing it 4 years later. Shortly afterwards it began supplying riders such as Gino Bartali and Fausto Coppi. By 1975, it was rebranded to Castelli, featuring the iconic scorpion logo, and shortly afterwards produced many revolutionary clothing products, such as the first lycra cycling shorts, windproof jerseys and thermal cycling clothing. To this day, the brand is synonymous with performance cycle wear, and together with Santini, they supply some of the greatest ex and current cyclists on the planet.
