Part of Castelli's Rain-or-Shine collection the Nelmezzo RoS Jersey is designed to excel in cool dry conditions but also offer significant protection in light rain.
Membrane fabrics are excellent at keeping the wind out and offering protection from rain or snow but even the very best still can't exhaust moisture, in the form of sweat, away as fast as you can produce it. That's where knitted fabrics excel they are air permeable allowing some air to pass through the fabric which literally takes the sweat out with it.
What makes the Nelmezzo really special and allows it to wear the RoS label is that the individual yarns are water repellant and the knit is tight meaning this jersey is almost waterproof but is also much more breathable than a membrane. Sure in heavy rain your going to need your Idro, but in a drizzle, for road spray and for getting home in the rain the Nelmezzo excels.
This jersey is made in the new double layer tight weave Nano Flex Xtra Dry fabric it sits somewhere between a traditional jersey and a light jacket with a membrane hence the name Nelmezzo roughly translates as in the middle.
And because you will be wearing the Nelmezzo a lot it features reflective armbands and rear panel to keep you a little safer on those dark damp nights.
