The Castelli Elemento Lite Women's Winter Jacket is an update to the highly popular Puffy jersey but with more loft and breathability.
Firstly it should be said this is a cold weather training jacket for those old school long winter base miles slow and steady wins the race (if the race is podiums in the spring) if your winter riding is more about chasing segments or chain gangs look to the Alpha.
Designed for maximum warmth with minimal weight the Elemento W features Polypropylene synthetic down sandwiched between air permeable texture shells. This allows maximum warmth for weight and allows a small amount of airflow through the jacket to aid breathability and moisture management.
The Elemento features Plisse stretch panels to allow for stretch and movement but this is a slightly looser cut than our more traditional ladies winter jackets. A deep adjustable inner waist means there are no drafts unless you want to open it up for increased airflow.
A high neck with full-length internal zipper baffle, (with a part-covered external zip baffle to eliminate rattles) and cross wrap cuffs keep drafts at bay elsewhere.
The three open rear pockets end with reflective gussets for a little lowlight visibility.
- 3-layer insulated construction with engineered air permeability gives Castelli's best combination of warmth, breathability and low weight.
- Japanese made air permeable woven-texture nylon outer shell with water-repellent finish
- Polypropylene synthetic down insulation layer provides warmth while allowing full breathability without water absorption
- Plisse stretch panels on sides and elbows allow for close to body fit yet with freedom of movement
- Three rear pockets with reflective gusset
- Inner waist closure allows you to block out drafts (closed) or allow extra breathability (open)
