We're always on the quest to find the perfect jacket. If you are lucky enough to live in an area where the winters are pretty mild or need a jacket that is perfect for most fall conditions, have a look at Castelli's Transition Jacket. This jacket is the brand's lightest-weight winter jacket and is rated for temperatures between 46 to 61 degrees Fahrenheit. Most of Castelli's jackets have a fleece lining but the Transition uses a lightly brushed finish that helps it wick away moisture better. Autumnal winds can still bring chill, especially if you are just a bit sweaty. Castelli knows this and constructs the front and sleeves of the jacket with lightweight Gore Windstopper X-Mid fabric adding protection from the wind without sacrificing breathability. Adding a proper base layer can take this jersey into sub-40 degree territory. We enjoy the lightweight design, plus the reduced bulk allows the garment to adapt to our movements on the bike. The industry's gold-standard, YKK zippers work so well we're able to zip up and down one-handed while riding to regulate temps. Three rear pockets hold a lot of gear, which is great because cooler temps inspire us to make all-day ride plans. If we get back just a little too late, the reflective details on the back help us remain visible to motorists in low light at dusk.
