Giordana Sosta Long Sleeve Wool Jersey - Women's

The Sosta Long Sleeve Wool Women's Jersey embodies two things Giordana privileges in its kit: history and innovation. Everything from the material to the shape satisfies these apparently contradictory masters, with a classic/techy fabric blend and such incongruous touches as poacher-style rear pockets and a race-cut front hem bringing cycling's past squarely in line with its future. The jersey is made of a knitted, heathered blend called Koln, which incorporates merino wool and nylon to meet the history/tradition mandate, respectively. Wool was cycling's original wonder fabric because it resists odors, insulates, breathes, and wicks moisture--a combination of properties that the synthetics industry has been pursuing for its entire existence. The synthetics do have strong representation in the form of nylon, though, which allows for the kind of stretch-and-return fit we expect from contemporary gear for serious cyclists. Nylon also adds a bit of durability to the wool, extending the jersey's life even as its insulation and moisture management extend your riding window well into the early winter. As alluded to above, the jersey features a high front hem, which reduces rippling along the stomach while you're in the saddle. It's also finished with three pockets: two poacher-style hand pockets in the rear and one pocket on the side that zips shut to secure personal effects. An extended collar helps keep the chill at bay, and reflective elements add a touch of low-light visibility during autumn dusks and cool spring mornings.

October's Featured Park
Arches National Park is known for its' remarkable natural red sandstone arches. With over 2,000 catalogued arches that range in size from a three-foot opening, to Landscape Arch which measures 306 feet from base to base, the park offers the largest concentration of natural arches in the world.
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.
