Treat Yourself To The Best Of The Best
According to cyclingnews.com, the Castelli Alpha RoS 2 Jacket sets an all-new benchmark in what a winter cycling jacket can achieve. That's exactly what Castelli was aiming for, enhancing moisture management and ventilation for the best winter jacket ever.
A warm 3D insulation-layer fabric provides better breathability and fit. For wet conditions, Gore-Tex Infinium™ Windstopper® 150 fabric plus waterproof seam taping keeps you dry. The neck comes up high and moves with you, while the waist uses a stretch layer with silicone beads that lie flat and completely seal out the wind without riding up. A brand-new double-layer wrist opening with an inner layer to go under your glove will seal tight to keep out wind and rain.
A double-layer construction allows you to open an outer wind-protection layer while keeping the insulation layer closed, creating airflow inside the jacket to evacuate moisture while avoiding direct contact with the skin.

My favorite jacket for fall-winter riding.
Oregon City and Bend Oregon areas
I use this jacket for cycling in cooler, windy, and or rainy weather. Waterproof, and blocks wind chill. The vest can be left unzipped to prevent overheating. The cut is very nice. I was a bit iffy when I first put it on but after that first ride this became my favorite cool/wet weather cycling outer layer.
