Super cool in a warm way

When I put this on, I felt like hitting the slopes. This is a very comfortable, warm and breathable jacket. The rear pocket has lots of room with an extra little flap over the long zipper - this has two zipper handles so you can open it with either hand. But you really don't need to zipper it as the flap will keep it all in. The jacket is fleece on the inside which helps with warmth of course, but also makes the seam stitching a little less noticeable. I noticed this because I usually buy gear with that "flat lock stitching" but I also didn't have a base layer on too. Not an issue cause I ride with one. The reflective seams are nice - in silver. The silver Castelli logo adds visiblitly from the back without being too blingy. On the inside, the high neck collar is the only part that is not fleece, it's the windstopper material. Good length and excellent movement in the jacket. I am 5'8" 135 pounds and ordered a size large. Even if I gain 10 pounds this winter, I will not feel restricted in this jacket. But I won't because now there is no excuse not to ride.
