Finding the right cycling jacket can make all the difference on those chilly rides. Donning one that's overkill on a milder ride can leave you a sweaty mess, especially if any intensity is involved, and conversely too light of a jacket makes for a miserably cold experience that will have you contemplating riding the trainer next time. That's why we're such fans of the Mortirolo V Jacket from Castelli. It's lightweight and warm and ideal for those shoulder season rides or if your geographic location tends to have milder winters with Castelli recommending it in temperatures ranging between 43 and 57-degrees Fahrenheit. It doesn't offer quite the cold and rain protection as its siblings the Alpha or Espresso V, but in the right conditions, we would rather be in this jacket. The Mortirolo V features a slim cut that's designed for training and racing efforts and is comfortable on climbs such as its namesake, or during some openers for the weekend's 'cross race. It's not quite as contoured as some of Castelli's race kit, however, the Mortirolo V easily accommodates a baselayer or long-sleeve jersey without that overstuffed sausage casing appearance. Gore Windstopper X-Fast main body fabric and stretchy windproof panels on the sides and shoulders provide protection against the wind and resist water, while Castelli's Thermoflex fleece covers the back of the jacket. It provides a refined fit and breathability to prevent overheating and allows moisture to escape. The jacket is finished with an easy sliding YKK zipper that facilitates one-handed ventilation adjustments, 3 rear pockets for stowing riding essentials, and a large reflective panel below the pockets help increase visibility to motorists.

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.
