Keep dry year 'round.

The transition months of spring and fall are uncertain times when it comes to temperature, but at the least, they're guaranteed to be wet and windy. The Louis Garneau Modesto Jacket 2's lightweight, breathable design is ideal for variable weather. Both wind and water resistant, the Modesto is cool enough to zip over any kit in the spring, winter, or fall.

The Louis Garneau Modesto Jacket 2 is made from a blend of Garneau's Diamond Air and Light Mesh Airdry fabrics. Used for the outer-layer due to its tear-resistant diamond-pattern construction, the Diamond Air fabric is both lightweight and breathable. Additionally, this material aids in the repelling of wind and water. The Modesto's inner lining uses a large, open-celled mesh knit that keeps a consistent, cool temperature by transferring moisture to the quick drying Diamond Air surface layer. Together, they offer a lightweight design that won't overheat in the unpredictable temperatures of the transitional months. The Modesto Jacket 2 also features elastic grippers at the cuffs and hem to ensure a no-slip fit that won't shift under load. For storage, Garneau included a zip and flap rear pocket, and a 'motivation pocket' for your MP3 player.

The Louis Garneau Modesto Jacket 2 is available in sizes X-Small through XX-Large, and in the colors Black/red, Bright Yellow, Ginger, and White.

Great lightweight jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: small

LG Modesto is perfect jacket for cool(mid 30s to 50s) early morning spring/fall rides which transition to warmer temperature as morning progress to afternoon. It's comfortable when layered with long sleeve jersey even in windy condition. Louis Garneau's jersey and jacket runs big for me. I wear mostly medium but have to get a small for this jacket as well as a LG long sleeve jersey I purchased.

Nice Jacket

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

I have used the jacket for temps in the 40-60 degree range, and it works excellently. Never had a windbreaker that was this soft. I always get the bright yellow or green, but this yellow is actually quite nice looking. I would wear it anywhere, but I want to dedicate it to cycling use because it works so well. As for fit I am a medium and bought the large. The size chart is correct but I wanted to allow for layering. It think this jacket probably has a range (wind chill included) of 30 degrees, so I am very happy with my acquisition.

great wind breaker

  • Fit: True to size

This does a great job on breaking the wind on those colder rides. I have no problems at all with this jacket.

Great light jacket

Great jacket for spring, fall, and cool summer mornings. Not too heavy, and helps keep the wind out. Easily fits in jersey pockets when the temperature warms up later.

what's the difference between this and the team wind jacket. they seem identical minus the design and rear pocket.

Bright and perfect for the road

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Bought this for my husband when we're road cycling. The color is WOW yellow - nice and bright for the drivers who claim to NEVER see cyclists on the road - they have no excuse now! The material is great against the skin (yes I've borrowed it) and it's easy to wash.



Husband wears a size XL and ordered this in same - fit is true to size (6'2")

It would depend on the activity in which you plan on using the jacket, but this description of the garment should adequately answer your question :

Basically, I think you would copacetic using this jacket in 40 degree weather, but everyone's bodies are different, so it's hard to say for certain.

I agree with James Howard. If you're using this for cycling in November/December, you're bound to be a little cold (it was perfect for Sept/Oct weather when it was in the 50s/60s to cut wind/chill).

For forty degrees, I would layer a 60% cotton short sleeve tee, thin polyester long sleeve tee, and thin wool sweater. If it were windy I would add a lightweight denim shirt over the sweater. The last layer under the jacket should add neck coverage.

Great Team Jacket

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

Just recieved our 6 jackets for our team. They fit true to form if you use the sizing chart with a little wiggle room for movement on the ride or run. The material is great, fit is comfortable, style is awesome looking. We had our team logo printed on the front and back making this a great incliment weather jacket. The price was unbeatable which was compared to hundreds of other sites. Ordered and arrived with in two days...amazing, just in time for the next triathlon! Thank you Back Country for great products, great prices and fast shipping.
