The Perfect Jacket, Rain Or Shine
The Castelli Men's Perfetto RoS 2 is the one jacket that does everything well, and if you have just one jacket in your cycling wardrobe, this should be it. The Perfetto jacket is one of Castelli's most versatile pieces, wind protection, water protection, and best-in-class breathability. With a light base layer it's good for mild temperatures, or with a thermal layer you can ride it below freezing.
The Perfetto RoS 2 Jacket keeps all the cold wind out while being much more breathable than the typical polyurethane membranes. When you stay drier, you don't need as many layers underneath. The beauty of this jacket is that it doesn't have any insulation on its own, so a thin base layer is just right for mild conditions, while adding an insulating layer will take you to cold temperatures.
The Next Generation Of Perfection
The RoS insignia signifies that it excels in dry conditions thanks to the high breathability, as well as in wet conditions thanks to the Castelli-exclusive GORE-TEX INFINIUM WINDSTOPPER fabrics. There's a light fleece-lined water-resistant version on the forward-facing surfaces and a lighter and stretchier fabric on the back that maximizes the breathability while providing excellent water repellency.
The "2" part of the name refers to the updates to the latest version, including a YKK Vislon zipper with both top and bottom openings for more adjustable ventilation. The reflectivity on the back is more visible, the seam at the top of the shoulder has been moved to the back, and the three pockets hold more gear. While the Perfetto remains decidedly a performance fit, the new model has a touch more room through the chest, shoulder, and biceps. This is the one jacket that belongs in every cyclist's quiver.

A well designed piece ideal for Northern California winter rides. Tailor the base layer(s) to the temperature and the jacket replaces a thermal jersey and windshell/vest combination, with the added bonus of protetion from rain. Love the breathability and venting options I'd choose something else for subfreezing temps or extended heavy rain, but rarely ride in those conditions.
Quality rain or shine coat. My go to coat in cooler weather. With a primo base layer underneath, this coat keeps the wind and water out. It's stylish, visible, and cut just right too.
Excellent jacket that works for deep winter and shoulder seasons depending on how you layer underneath. Good fit and great water resistance. Won't soak thru unless riding in sustained all out downpour.
