Protection against the elements.

When you're riding through sleet and snow in frigid temperatures, you don't want a sub-par jacket letting the elements in. You want the Giordana Forte Trade FormaRed Carbon Men's Jacket. Made with hardcore winter cyclists in mind, this jacket ticks off all the winter weather riding boxes to get you through all those base miles toasty warm and dry.

Giordana uses a mix of three main fabrics to put the FormaRed Carbon Jacket together with strategic paneling to manage moisture and protect areas that take the brunt of winter's force. Its HD44 Light fabric comprises of a WindTex membrane sandwiched between two layers of polyester microfiber to provide stretchy, breathable, wind-blocking comfort at the shoulders, rear sides, and rear waist of the jacket. Slightly heavier HD44 fabric covers the front, collar, and arms to provide the same freedom of movement and breathability with even more element-blocking functionality. Both the HD44 and HD44 Light fabrics are finished with a stain and water resistant DWR coating that fights off water and lets it roll smoothly off the surface without soaking in. To finish off the jacket, soft and breathable SuperRoubaix fabric makes up the rear panel, pocket, underarms, cuffs, and inside the collar to provide cozy warmth and moisture management in areas less exposed to the wind.

The FormaRed Carbon Jacket doesn't just stop with amazing fabrics, it has all the little details that make winter rides easier. Its tall, ergonomically shaped collar is softly lined and sits close to your skin without pinching to seal out wind and cold. Two front zippered chest vents let you control airflow when the temperature shifts while three rear pockets provide ample room for an extra set of toe warmers, gloves, and some mid-ride oatmeal cream pies pies with a fourth zippered pocket to safely hold your ID and keys. A silicone gripper across the waist in the back keeps the jacket in place and eliminates bunching or unexpected exposure to wind gusts, and high visibility reflective striping across the back increases visibility to motorists in low-light conditions and dreary winter days.

Fantastic winter jacket!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

This jacket is phenomenal so far. I love how the color scheme provides good all around visibility without being overly bright. The jacket has a tight racing fit but runs true to size. If you are looking for something a little roomier I would size up. Definitely keeps you toasty on days where water is turning to ice.
