Warm days that seep through otherwise cool Octobers always seem to have a chance of rain in the forecast. The Castelli Misto Jacket is a pocket-sized waterproof jacket that will keep you dry without weighing you down.
Castelli combines performance and fit in every jacket it designs, and even though it's a lightweight rain jacket, the Misto is no different. It was constructed from Torrent 2.5-layer fabric that has a 10,000mm waterproofness rating. While some companies use a waterproof fabric, but do not seal the seams of their jackets, Castelli fully taped all the seams of the Misto for total waterproofness. In addition to keeping the rain out, the stretch properties of the Torrent material give the jacket a form fit while allowing you freedom to stretch out while riding.
Keeping the rain out is important, but if the jacket is not breathable, once you start moving and working up a sweat, you'll be as soaked from the inside as the outside. The Misto is breathable so that moisture is able to move to the exterior and evaporate.
The Misto's high collar minimizes rain seeping in and the front zipper is waterproof so you won't worry about splash from the wheel in front of you soaking you to the bone. For those days when the sky is grey and you feel invisible to traffic, Castelli has added 360 degrees of visibility with reflective striping around the jacket.
The Castelli Misto Jacket is available in Yellow fluo/black and Black and comes in sizes Small through XXX-Large.
