Santini Ice Jacket - Men's $0.00
You make sure you're always prepared for your rides -- pump, tube(s), levers, and mobile phone. But what about the weather? Just as we can't predict the unfortunate mishaps that cause us to grab our repair kits, we also don't know what Mother Nature's hiding up her sleeve. Good thing Santini was thinking ahead when creating its new Ice Jacket, as its light, packable design stays out of the way when the weather's ideal, but jumps into action when the clouds roll in.
With the new Ice Jacket, you can ride with your mind at ease, knowing that Santini did its homework when engineering the new lightweight shell. It's constructed from a windproof, water-resistant polyester fabric that provides a great deal of stretch. It's also lightweight, breathable, and highly conforming to the body. Weighing in closer to a jersey than outerwear, the Ice is recommended for temperatures varying from the low 50s to around 70 degrees Fahrenheit. This heat tolerance is supported by a few key features. Of course, at the front of the jacket, there's a full-length zipper that's indispensable for dumping heat on-the-fly. Moving to the rear, Santini added its protective wing on the upper back, which is an open-mesh insert that not only assists in the breathing and ventilation of the jacket, but also supports the precise, anatomic fit of the Ice.
After all, Santini knows that expensive, technical fabrics are moot when a jacket's fit is off. And in our opinion, fit is where Santini truly breaks off onto its own course. Knowing that the Ice isn't meant for lounging, Santini designed the cut to accommodate your body in the cycling position. What does this mean? Simple. The shape of everything from the seams to the hems are contoured for the cycling-specific position of reaching from the saddle to the bars. And with its stretchable, polyester composition, you'll also experience the fabric conforming to your body, specifically. This system eliminates any bunching or chafing throughout movement.
The finishing details are of the Ice are subtle, but important. The drop-tail hem provides added coverage, and the elastic insert at the back of the collar lets you move your neck without restriction. Also, to increase your visibility to motorists on the road, reflective accents have been incorporated throughout the jacket.
The Santini Ice Jacket is available in six sizes from Small to XXX-Large and in the color Transparent.

Better than similar from Castelli
I have similar packable jackets from Castelli and Hincapie. The Castelli is thoughtfully engineered (as always) but suffers from poor QC (poor quality zipper) -and is made in China. The Hincapie is very good all around. But this Santini jacket is my favorite. Best function, venting, and quality overall.
Santini garments are made in Italy (since 1965). Santini puts a lot of obvious pride into the design, sewing, and quality of their cycling clothing. And a high quality zipper!
Fit: I'm 5'10" and 190 lbs. The XL fit a little too snug. The XXL fit better for me. As usual for Santini and Castelli, size up 1 or even 1-1/2 sizes depending on your BMI.
