Chrono Expert Wind Jacket
Adding some windproof protection on a ride can certainly make for a more pleasurable experience if the winds are howling and the temps are cooler and the Chrono Expert Wind Jacket from Giro is an excellent shell for just such an occasion. Its lightweight windproof material provides a barrier against chilly gusts while its durable, 2-way stretch ripstop fabric easily packs down to fit into a jersey pocket when it's not needed. As part of its Chrono lineup, it receives a form-fitting silhouette so it doesn't billow in the wind leading to wasted watts.
Giro treats the jacket with a DWR coating to keep road spray and light precipitation on the outside from wetting out the jacket and chilling you. Likewise, a perforated back panel lets excessive body heat and sweat vapor escape and reduces the amount of moisture buildup inside. And for low light conditions, you'll appreciate the 3M reflective logos and details helping to enhance visibility to other road users.

perfect for the weather of Bogota
- I've used it several times
- Size Bought:
- 5' 4"
Fabric used in this jacket is perfect for the changeable weather of Bogota Colombia. good breathability and perfect to protect your chest in the cold weather downhill. the only bad thing for me is that I use to buy L size for jackets in other brands and this brand is quite bigger, I should buy an M size.

Perfect for those chilly starts
- I've put it through the wringer
- Size Bought:
- 5' 10"
Love this jacket. Perfect for those chilly starts or for me, rides that approach our big Great Lake, where temp could drop 15 degrees suddenly. Better answer than arm warmers since it gives your chest protection from wind. Great ventilation on back for breathability but note it will not protect from rain. Packs super tiny but I haven't figured out how to origami it into the built in stuff sack. I get a ball-with-arms every time. But it is a small ball that fits easily in a jersey pocket. Great fit for me -- form fitting without feeling like a straight jacket. If they had my size and color (I don't like wearing dark colors on road for visibility) I would order a couple more!!!
