The way we see it, the Idro Pro 2 Jacket from Castelli is pretty much the holy grail of cycling rain protection. It's lightweight, packable, highly breathable, waterproof, and aero fitting. As such, it leaves little excuse not to ride even if the radar shows a massive green blob hovering over your vicinity. Using GORE-TEX's much-lauded SHAKEDRY membrane, Castelli saw the opportunity to make a better waterproof jacket and make it lighter than ever before.Waterproofing and lightweight is a given, however, excessive perspiration is never ideal, so thankfully SHAKEDRY is more breathable than ever. Also, Gore brings its new Topo inserts to the game offering a close fit and easy packability to a jacket that offers protection for all-day riding in the rain. And for ease of convenience, Castelli has given the Idro Pro two external pockets so you don't have to unzip it to reach to your nutrition on the go.Eagle eyes will note its longer tail shielding you from the back wheel's spray, while not so noticeable details like a soft neck liner are a cozy godsend in less than stellar conditions. And since its made to ride in the rain and the low light conditions that accompany it, Castelli wisely bestows it with reflective piping for safety.Naturally the comparison between the Pro and the standard Idro 2 jacket will arise and Castelli claims the Pro is more of a workhorse jacket that's made for the rider who leaves home for an all-day ride in the rain and needs the jacket as a necessity, not a piece that stays in a pocket until it's called upon.

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.
