The Most Versatile Riding Jacket

Get access to everything we publish when you sign up for Outside+.

Nov 26, 2015 – When traveling, garments that can perform double duty, straddle categories and still perform at a high level are critical.

Peloton

Castelli’s Alpha Jacket does all of this in what has become our new favorite piece of apparel. This jacket incorporates windproof Windstopper® technology whilst maintaining ventilation and thermal performance, and it has three pockets in the rear for storage.

The skin-like fit won’t have the jacket flapping in the wind either. But the Alpha’s true pièce de résistance is the integrated vest. It makes riding with a jersey or undershirt unnecessary most days. It’s worth its weigh in gold on a long trip living out of a suitcase.
