Castelli Tempesta Race Jacket

size chart
SKU: B15510
The Castelli Tempesta Race Jacket was made for long rides in the rain. The Tempesta accomplishes a not-so-easy feat---it blocks rain out and pulls sweat away from the body. Made with eVent fabric, the jacket is a highly breathable, fully waterproof layer with sealed seams. To top it off, the eVent fabric is light and stretchy making it feel more like a windproof softshell as opposed to a stiff rain jacket. Traditionally rain jackets flap around, but the Tempesta doesn’t do this, it has an excellent race fit which means it fits tight and close. The race fit combined with a high collar, quick lock wrist closure and long tail make sure rain stays out. The rear flap extends below the two rear pockets. While this might not be flattering, it does its job of keeping wheel spray off the rider. The two rear pockets make a great storage space for punctured tubes. Rain drains out of the mesh pockets which have reflective stripes bringing high visibility to the rider during low sun, high rain days.
