Your winters just got a whole lot warmer with a cycling jacket that's made to impress.
When the weather takes a turn for the worse, don't bother uncrumpling your ratty old jacket that barely keeps out the cold. Get incredible dry-weather breathability and comfort with an unbelievably high level of water protection with the Castelli Men's Alpha RoS 2 Jacket, and never settle for less.
A double-layer construction allows you to utilize the impressive outer wind-protection layer while keeping the insulation layer closed, allowing airflow inside the jacket to eradicate moisture while avoiding direct contact with the skin. On a long climb, a smart cyclist will completely open the outer layer to allow moisture to escape, and zip up that outer layer during a descent to remain completely dry inside. Water-resistant GORE-TEX INFINIUM™ WINDSTOPPER® fabric is utilized along critical seams around the shoulder to keep you dry through mist, wet roads, and even incessant light rain. Other seams are hidden out of direct water flow and, with the water-repellent treatment on the fabric, moisture is completely prevented from entering.
Featuring the brand new double-layer wrist opening, fit with an inner layer that goes under your glove to seal tight to your wrist, and an outer layer that goes over your glove so rain will roll down the outside of the glove — and not end up inside.
Prepare for your gear to get a cool new upgrade. Every detail in the Castelli Men's Alpha RoS 2 Jacket is designed to let you ride longer and in complete comfort throughout the cold-weather months — making this the ultimate winter jacket.

Amazing piece of kit
Very versatile. I have been comfortable at 45F with a sleeveless base layer and in the mid 20s with long sleeved merino wool base, and have no doubt I would stay cosy at even lower temps. Also very comfortable and a more racy fit than most winter jacket which I like. Finally sleeves are nice and long, avoiding the dreaded gap (something is a problem with the Castelli Espresso that I got a couple of yrs back).
Only "issue" is the color fiery red is close to orange - something that it is hard to tell from a website picture.
