Capo Lombardia DWR Jersey

The Race of the Falling Leaves heralds the end of the top-level European cycling season. Given that it takes place in the volatile Mediterranean fall, Il Lombardia sees a variety of conditions every year, with the last three editions of the race featuring rain to one extent or another. Capo's Lombardia DWR Jersey therefore serves two purposes: to honor the tradition of rainy days at Lake Como while simultaneously protecting you from that very element. The jersey combines two fabrics, Element-4 Membrane and Thermo Roubaix DWR for a performance on par with any of the other anti-weather super jerseys we've had the pleasure of wearing. The Element-4 Membrane is your classic elemental shield, keeping wind and water at bay while still breathing to prevent the accumulation of moisture and water vapor against your skin. The Thermo Roubaix with DWR treatment also offers resistance to the elements, but, more importantly, introduces a layer of hollow-core fabric between you and the cold.

The Lombardia's fit also speaks to its racing namesake. It's a race-cut jersey, made in Italy, and designed along the lines of the super kits that have been showing up in the pro peloton over the past several years. Its lines certainly aren't reminiscent of the tent-shaped rain jackets of yore, and you won't suffer from the pregnant hippo look that has defined inclement weather kit for so long.

They're long enough to hit just above the elbows, offering an ideal amount of coverage without warmers or ensuring that there are no gaps between warmers and jersey. The collar is exaggerated to offer more cover to an area that is often neglected. The rear hem is not just exaggerated; it's extended to an almost comical length. You won't be laughing when you've got the only...

October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
