After fifteen switchbacks, two false summits, and a minor mishap resembling 'Chaingate,' you're chomping at the bit to head back down. But, after all that work, you've worked up quite a sweat, and heading down unprotected would spell frozen disaster for your core. The Castelli Agnel Wind Vest will block the wind and keep you warm enough to enjoy the descent. Once down, it stuffs easily back into your jersey pocket for the next climb.
The Agnel is built much like your typical wind vest and is designed to be as lightweight and packable as possible. There is a single pocket on the side of the vest. There aren't any cape vents in the back, like you'd see on vests designed for longer trips. The Agnel is a descending vest, and while it will function in other roles, riders that typically run warm will find the lack of venting noticeable over the course of a longer ride.
The Castelli Agnel Wind Vest comes in Black and in six sizes from Small to X-Large.
