Rated from 32º
to 50º we would give the Espresso Due a wider range of comfortable riding temperature, certainly
up to 60º thanks to smart venting of the full fleece liner, zippered chest
vents are complimented by open vents at the shoulders. Those shoulder vents
help with overall flexibility as well making the jacket feel lighter than it
actually is. The outer fabric is wind proof with four way stretch and called
water resistant. That water resistance is phenomenal, making a dedicated rain
cape unnecessary on all but the wettest rides. Two beautiful touches really
finish off the Espresso Due, the interior pocket with cable port over the right
breast is the perfect size to safely cradle an iPhone and the zippered wrists
make pulling your gloves on and off to use your touch screen a breeze. We would
like to see one of the 3 back pockets zippered for a little more security.
Fit: True to Castelli, expect a tight, race oriented fit.
Consider sizing up if you fit a snug medium and want to layer.
