If being able to see your breath was ever an excuse not to ride, no one's ever tried to use it on Castelli. The Castelli Zoncolan Jacket gives you a tangible advantage over Mother Nature. As tough as the legendary Italian climb, the Zoncolan is windproof, water-resistant, and warming in temperatures as low as 32 degrees. The Zoncolan is an excuse-killer of a jacket that leaves no reason to avoid putting in your base miles.Castelli's Zoncolan Jacket is made from the legendary Windstopper X-Fast 2 fabric. Both windproof and water-resistant, this W.L. Gore fabric is also highly breathable -- providing dependable warmth in frigid conditions without making you a sweaty mess. For extra protection on wicked winter descents, Castelli added a flip-up, fleece-lined Thermoflex collar to keep the wind from biting your chest and neck. The Zoncolan also features three external back pockets for your portables, and has an elastic band to keep the jacket from riding up. The Zoncolan is the go anywhere, do anything jacket for winter. The Castelli Zoncolan Jacket is available in six sizes from Small to XXX-Large and in the colors Black, Cyan/black, and White/red/black.
