How to define the Giordana Silverline Jacket? It's high tech, performance-oriented, and in many ways beyond state-of-the-art. The WindTex Corsa material that constitutes the majority of this garment has been a staple of racing teams for years, one they're still utilizing, despite the fact that newer materials have cropped up.
The Silverline Jacket is a bargain while still being a great piece for winter riding. The Corsa fabric, which is waterproof/windproof/breathable is great as an outer layer on cold days; it's even brushed on the inside for a little extra warmth. Aiding in the fit and function are Super Roubaix panels on the back, down the sides, and under the arms. Super Roubaix is a brushed nylon-spandex frequently seen in arm warmers, helping both with fit and evaporation. The chest panels, the majority of the arm panels, and the two big back panels are Corsa for warmth (the spearhead down the middle is Super Roubaix).
It works great as a warm-up/cool-down piece for races. But more importantly, it's a winter jacket for the daily grind. Pretty much any time it's below 40 degrees Fahrenheit, you'll want something that's windproof for your chest. If you're going on an easy endurance ride, this jacket is the ticket from 40 on down. The colder it gets, the more you'll layer up inside -- something the generous cut of the jacket allows rather easily. For racing, even at freezing temperatures, this may be too warm.
The Silverline Jacket has all the hallmarks of the Giordana line. The zipper has an easy-to-grab rubber pull tab which works great even when wearing gloves, and there is a draft flap behind the zipper as well. The tops of the pockets are finished with reflective piping. The Giordana logos on the chest and arms are also reflective. It's available in six sizes from Small to XXX-Large and in three colors -- Black, Blue/black, and Red/black.
