Description

Built for Winter Rides.

A little bit of cool weather riding never hurt anyone, especially when you have the Castelli Women's Mortirolo 2 Jacket on your side. Built for mild, yet cold conditions that fall above the 42 degrees Fahrenheit mark (sans precipitation, mind you), the Mortirolo is endowed with a hybrid design, ensuring that you get the best of both worlds: windproof protection and innate breathability. 

To start, Castelli designers outfitted with Mortirolo with a warm and windproof Gore Windstopper X-Fast material at the front of the jacket, sleeves, and yoke. This strategic material placement assures protection where you need it most and safeguards your vital organs from warmth-sapping winds and elements. Meanwhile, the back end of the jacket features Warmer thermal fleece that is designed to wick moisture, dry quickly, and promote passive breathability. The slim fit maintains an aerodynamic feel, without squeezing you uncomfortably, and reflective strips enhance your visibility in low-light conditions.

  • Stay warm on your winter ride with this jacket
  • Windproof panels protect core warmth
  • Warmer fleece panel promotes breathability
  • Slim fit maintains an aerodynamic feel
  • Reflective strips enhance visibility
  • Three rear pockets safeguard necessities

Would Be Perfect With Chest Vents

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Small

After trying almost every winter cycling jacket out there, including men's models, I finally found this nearly perfect jacket. The small size fits almost like a glove and comfortably accommodates my shoulders, which are rather broad from swimming and rock climbing. There is a bit more bunching of material at the waist than I'd like when crouched over, but it's not bad at all. To be fair, I run into this problem with almost every jacket. For reference, my measurements are 34" chest, 27" waist.

I used this jacket for the first time yesterday, on an easy, mostly flat, out-and-back 40-mile ride, in temperatures ranging from 38 to 42 degrees F, with winds of 10-12 mph. Underneath I wore a thin, long-sleeved Craft base layer.

On the outward leg, the wind was behind me, and the jacket kept me comfortably warm while cycling at easy speeds of 14-16 mph. However, once I increased effort to moderate speeds of 17-19 mph, I found myself overheating quickly and had to unzip the jacket halfway. Even then I felt too warm, and this dissuaded me from ramping up to speeds of 20 mph+, which is why I docked one star from my rating. The women's Mortirolo would strongly benefit from the chest vents that the men's version has. I don't know why they were omitted from the women's version.

On the return leg, the wind was against me, and this is where I felt the Mortirolo 2 excelled. Despite the increased effort, I felt perfectly comfortable -- not too warm and not cold. The Windstopper areas on the front blocked wind completely, while the breathable material on the back and sleeves performed admirably in regulating temperature.

The jacket retains heat well when not in motion for short periods -- I stopped twice for a few minutes to wait for traffic lights, and did not feel any cold creeping in.

Based on this ride, I would say that the Mortirolo 2 can easily be used down into the high 20s/low 30s with the right base layer. I tend to run cold, but even then my thin base layer was soaked with sweat after 30 minutes at 40 degrees. As such, I think the jacket would be much too warm for higher-output riding over 45 F, unless one wears a short-sleeved base layer or mesh tank top underneath. I wouldn't wear this jacket on hilly/mountainous courses, unless it were very cold (or until chest vents are added).

Overall I really enjoyed using the Mortirolo 2 and would thoroughly recommend it, with the caveat that it lacks the flexibility of jackets with more venting options, and therefore requires more thought when layering.

Great Medium Weight Cycling Jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

This is truly right in the middle as far as weights of cycling jackets go. I needed something in the middle. This fits the bill. I ordered several other middle weight jackets (other brands), but I had fit issues with all of them and sent them back. They were all too tight in the chest and shoulders, and too big in the torso. I am 100 lbs, 5', 34 c, and this jacket in the medium fits me perfectly. It fits me just like what it looks like in the photo of the other reviewer, Marcy who looks great in her cycling apparel. The fabric inside and out is lovely and soft, and it is windstopper material which is important in keeping you warm when the wind kicks up. I have not used the jacket yet but I own many other castelli products, and have not ever been disappointed after using them. I use all my cycling apparel both road biking and mountain biking.

So stoked you love this! Thanks a million, for the review.

Go to jacket!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Small

This jacket has continued to impress me! I am 5'4 130 lbs and am wearing the small. It is a snug fit but not uncomfortable. If you are not used to a trim cycling fit, I would recommend sizing up one size.

I have worn this jacket with a wool baselayer down to 20 Fahrenheit during high output activities and down to 40 Fahrenheit for low output activities. In both instances, the jacket breathed well and kept me warm. I wasn't arriving to my destinations covered in sweat, which is very welcome as a year-round rider. It does a great job of blocking wind and keeping my core warm. It has been worn in one damp ride and the DWR finish kept me dry in a light rain. I would not use this as a waterproof shell though as it would become saturated in heavy rain. It is best used for an all-around jacket in the fall/spring and winter months with the correct layers.

May I ask what chest size you are? And is the fit in the shoulders and chest pretty relaxed and/or is the material relatively stretchy?

I am trying to figure out if I should get a small or medium, as I am right in between those two sizes (34" chest). My height and weight are close to yours (5'3", 127 lbs).

A small fits me well most of the time, even in tight clothes. However I have somewhat broad shoulders, which sometimes forces me to go up a size. The problem there is that I have a small waist and narrow hips, so mediums are often too baggy in the middle.

Hey Carolyn!

I am a 33.5" chest so very similar to you. The fit is not that relaxed in the shoulders but the material is stretchy. I spent about an hour in the drops without feeling like I was constricted in the shoulders.

With how similar our measurements are, I think a small would work great. I am happy to measure anything else on myself if that will help with your decision! My email is kharker@backcountry.com if you want to contact me directly.

Favorite semi cold weather jacket!!!!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

This is so far my favorite 40-55 degree jacket. It is warm, extremely comfortable, flattering and not too heavy in feel/thickness when on hills. I layer it with either a short sleeve jersey in the 50 degree range or with a long sleeve jersey in the 40 degree range.
