The Castelli Raddoppia Jacket is a classically styled winter jacket that makes full use of premium fabrics and increased reflective trim.
The Raddoppia loosely translated as double because what you get with this jacket is two products in one. A premium winter cycling jacket combining a full Gore Windstopper X-Fast windproof thermal fabric and a high level of visibility.
You would think to add reflectivity to a jacket was a simple process but reflectivity inhibits breathability and fit, so it's quite a challenge to make a jacket that performs with you during those hard winter miles, that looks and fits the way you expect it to and yet can still offer significant safety credentials.
Castelli describes the styling philosophy of the Raddoppia Jacket thus "The trouble with most reflective cycling wear is that you're embarrassed to wear it when it's not dark. That's why we're trying to bring very high levels of reflectivity to garments that you want to wear all the time. If you're more likely to be wearing it, then you're more likely to get the protection it can provide."
Functionally the fleece lined X-Fast fabric blocks the wind, resists a surprising amount of rain, sleet and snow while still offering great warmth and a close fit. The three rear pockets are supplemented by a fourth zippered one and the high collar helps block out the drafts. The carefully place reflective panels are perforated to aid breathability while the (non-reflective) giant arm wordmarks offer daylight interest.
