Harboring Springtime race ambitions while living in a cold-wintered environment can put a kink in the best laid training plans when the wind whips up and motivations shift towards afternoons on the couch with a warm bowl of comforting stew. That is, unless you have Castelli's Women's Indispensabile Jacket waiting patiently in your closet as a constant reminder that it's possible to stay warm while riding in the cold. Think of it as the Gabba's burlier cousin, there to keep you rolling when winter finally starts to dig in and adequate winter protection is indispensable for a successful spring campaign. The Indispensabile utilizes the same wind-blocking Gore Windstopper 150 outer shell found in Castelli's venerable Alpha jacket, combining lightweight, breathable stretch and element-blocking prowess to manage changes in weather and exertion with ease. Inside, this jacket boasts a soft, brushed Polartec Thermal Pro high-loft fleece lining to provide exceptional warmth without bulky weight. As a final touch, reflective accents boost visibility so you'll be easier to see in dreary conditions. Castelli recommends this jacket for ideal warmth in temperatures ranging from 37-54 degrees Fahrenheit, but we'd happily pair it with a jersey and base layer in colder temperatures without any concerns.

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.
