This isn't your old-style wind jacket.
If you're like most cyclists, there's a reason you're not using your old-style wind jacket more. With waterproof jackets like the being lighter and more compact than ever, Castelli decided it was time to reinvent the classic but with a professional spin. And thus, the Castelli Men's Aria Shell Jacket was born.
This jacket is an impossibly light layer that manages to keep the wind off the front of your body while also allowing ample breathability through the mesh side panels. But what you'll really appreciate is how the stretch panels are used in the sides and on the back of the sleeves to make this jacket fit like a second skin — no flapping fabric, no cold air circulating inside the jacket, no more looking like a throwback to the Armstrong era. Featuring a composition that is light and warm enough to wear for the entire ride in mild conditions, but if you do want to take it off it folds into a side panel pocket and stuffs away in minimal space in your pocket or seat bag.
In case it wasn't already clear, the Castelli Men's Aria Shell Jacket is very different from your flappy old jacket that either didn't protect you or didn't breathe. In fact, this highly durable and lightweight wind jacket is guaranteed to keep you warm the whole ride long. With this much love in one layer, you'll wonder how you ever enjoyed a ride without it.
