Giordana AV Extreme Winter Jacket - Men's

Layering is the skeleton key to Giordana's latest winter clothing line, with each entry in the extensive weather-protection hierarchy designed to span a large range of conditions depending on what you wear underneath it. The Men's AV Extreme Winter Jacket follows the same ethos, but its starting line is, well, extreme. It's still a layer-friendly, race-fit jacket, but it receives a sizeable thermal head start in the form of a Polartec Alpha 60 mid-layer instead of the lighter AV 300 jacket's brushed fleece lining. This insulating layer is sandwiched between a weather-resistant membrane and a winter mesh lining, so the AV Extreme Winter Jacket's temperature range reaches lower than any other jacket in Girodana's wardrobe. The Alpha 60 insulation is the biggest difference between the AV Extreme and AV 300 models, but the rest of the jacket's protective measures see similar tweaks in order to boost its overall deep-winter utility. Instead of the AV 300's DVstretch membrane, the AV Extreme features a DValpine membrane. Like with much of its top summer-weight kit, Giordana looked externally for material solutions to the typical cycling issues we all encounter. This search led it to eVent, a relatively young company that, since 1999, has been carving out space for itself in the breathable membrane market on the strength of its Direct Venting technology. Unlike the dominant strains of membranes currently flooding the market, eVent's Direct Venting models are what the brand calls a "dry system"--that is, they don't need to get wet before they begin to breathe. While traditional PU membranes require a slight accumulation of internal moisture before they begin to expel it, Direct Venting membranes like DValpine breathe immediately. This is ideal for cycling situations, where the work/rest cycles of intervals, climbs, or just pedaling between stop lights can make for a microclimate that constantly fluctuates from humid and hot to cold as exertion levels rise and fall.

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.
