The Castelli Elemento 2 7x(air) Women’s Jacket is ideal for those five-hour fall and early winter endurance rides when the female cyclist needs full wind protection but also needs enough air circulating so she stays dry and doesn’t overheat. In the design of the Elemento, Castelli used the best wind- and waterproof fabrics on the market and quilted them into a fleece inner layer so air continually circulates on the inside of the garment. The continuous exchange of air on the inside of the garment carries away moisture much better than fully sealed fabrics. Thanks to the Windshear inserts placed in 50% of the jacket, the Elemento is seven times more air permeable than jackets made only with standard Windstopper fabrics. The stretchy wind-resistant fabric with stitch holes makes this the perfect winter cycling jacket. The air pockets that form ridges provide extra insulation without adding extra weight. Another feature that ensures the rider is protected is the stretchy close-to-body fit. No cold air seeps into the jacket. Cold air will not enter at the neck thanks to the soft, high fleece collar. The flip-up back panel adds extra warmth. The fabric’s durable water repellent (DWR) sheds light rain, but it does not handle heavy rain. Zippers on the wrists provide an easier way of getting in and out of the jacket. The raw edge wrist cuffs lie flat so long winter gloves can cover the wrists and hands. The waist also lies flat, so there is not creasing in the riding position. Zippered chest and rear pockets have plenty of storage space for keys and money. Three rear pockets are easy to access for riding food.
