Temper the Flandrian fields.
Whether you're racing, spectating, or running support in the pit, the thought of setting out for 'cross in the morning during an early winter cold snap can be demoralizing at best. Castelli agrees, and the Meccanico Puffy Jacket is built to help a Mediterranean temperament deal with conditions more suited to a Belgian winter.
The Meccanico features a bulkhead of synthetic down that's quilted to maintain even distribution and reinforced with fleece lining. The shell has a water-repellant finish, and a zippered hand pocket provides a convenient way to avoid setting your multi-tool down in the wet grass. An adjustable hood rounds out the jacket's protective palmarès, maintaining a Riviera-esque microclimate even when the weather is more Flandrian.
