GIORDANA MEN'S JACKETS/VESTS
A jacket that's well-suited for the challenges of winter riding must provide three things: protection from the elements, a snug but flexible fit, and high breathability. The Giordana Silverline Men's Jacket provides these things and more. Count it as a superb choice among the growing number of soft shells that provide surprising rain and wind protection, while managing to feel more like long-sleeve jerseys than jackets.
Up front and on the sides, Giordana gave the Silverline its Corsa fabric, a 3-layer knit with a WindTex membrane, protective outer layer, and soft inner layer. This fabric shields you from the wind and rain, while allowing body-produced moisture to evaporate. It's soft against the skin, and the outer layer has a Durable Water Repellant (DWR) finish for added weatherproofing. The finish will retain its protective abilities through innumerable washes. For the underarm and back panels, Giordana used SuperRoubaix fabric, which has micro-fleece on the inside to help you retain body heat. Finally, the collar and the cuffs use ThermoDream fabric, which is both soft and stretchy.
The Silverline Men's Jacket has a tall collar that seals out the elements, and a silicone gripper at the hem to keep the jacket from riding up when you've in the drops. Three rear cargo pockets offer plenty of room for your gear, and two high-visibility reflective strips surround the pockets so that you are sure to be seen when it's dark out. Giordana is perhaps best known for blending high function with Italian style, and the Silverline is no exception to this formula. The single chest stripe gives it a classic look that we appreciate. The Giordana Silverline Men's Jacket comes in sizes Small through 3XL and in three color options: Black/black/white, Blue/black/white, and Red/black/white.
