This is the workhorse jacket in the Castelli winter lineup. We use our warmest GORE-TEX INFINIUM™ WINDSTOPPER® fleece-lined fabric on the front and back to keep the wind out and the heat in. For the back of the sleeves and side panels we use a lighter-weight GORE-TEX INFINIUM® WINDSTOPPER® for better fit and breathability. We keep the lines clean and don't add anything superfluous — unless you think the big reflective stripes front and back are superfluous. Functional details are all there, as you expect from Castelli: an easy-sliding YKK® Vislon® zipper and three big pockets for storage, along with a zippered key pocket for valuables. The Raddoppia 3 Jacket will keep you warm and seen all winter long.
WHAT IT IS The Raddoppia 3 Jacket is clearly designed to hit all the prerequisites for winter riding without added complications: windproof, warmly insulated, water repellent, breathable, and with 360° reflectivity, along with Castelli's functional attention to detail and fit.

READY IN CASE OF EMERGENCY Just like the name says, we wanted to create the ideal simple emergency rain jacket. We made it completely waterproof and compact, and, as you'd expect from Castelli, we also gave it an amazing on-bike fit, yet it's still roomy enough to fit over a Gabba. This jacket is an emergency piece, so we knew you wouldn't want to break the bank with it, but the only real compromise compared to our top-of-the-line offerings is in breathability. We didn't make this for an all-day rain ride, but it's just right for your next emergency.
Deluge Light 2.5-layer waterproof fabric keeps rain off with 10,000 mm water column
Slight amount of stretch for excellent fit in riding position
Folds into half a jersey pocket for emergency situations
Innovative gutters drain water away from hands and off back
Waterproof zipper and seam sealing keep all water out
DOUBLE-LAYER PROTECTION FOR RIDES OF ANY INTENSITY
The front protection is now in Gore® Windstopper®. The Strato Wind Jacket is a winning concept that has been appreciated in many different racing situations. The double layer on the front returns in this new version, with more freedom and comfort for the arms. Now, the protective vest is in Gore® Windstopper® for even higher efficacy, with the same thermoregulation ability that has always characterized this jacket. Or this vest. This piece is so amazing that a single definition would be too limiting.
NoRain fabric for maximum comfort and warmth
Front Gore® Windstopper® layer with 2 hidden chest zippers for ventilation
The best protection for maximum effort on wintertime gravel rides. The jacket features a three-layer design: wind protection, insulation and lining. The front provides total protection from the elements, while the thermal fabrics on the back are stretchy for increased comfort. Two additional pockets on the chest offer more storage options. The jacket is perfect for temperatures from 5°C to 10°C – the fabrics are warm but very light and not bulky. And breathability is guaranteed, even during your hardest efforts on the bike.
If you're looking for just one jacket to do it all, start here. |We used our lightest GORE-TEX INFINIUM™ WINDSTOPPER® three-layer stretch fabric, which makes it great for milder conditions, and the stretch gives it a great fit. It's the same outer fabric as we use for our Alpha RoS 2 Jacket, called The benchmark in how the best winter jackets should perform by Cyclingnews.com, but the Go Jacket forgoes the Alpha's integrated liner so you can decide how much insulation you need. Add a Flanders Warm base layer and thermal jersey to extend the comfort range to subfreezing temperatures.|But the fabric is only the start. We've tailored the fit to be close to body but not too close. It gives a good drape to the jacket, rounded out by details like the no-sew finishing to the hem and the zippered colored chest pocket. The hidden internal cuffs are a nice comfort touch, and you'll appreciate how they eliminate drafts from the wrist. There are three pockets on the back, with a large reflective strip stretching across the entire bottom of the pockets for nighttime visibility. |Where does this jacket fit in our line? It's similar in warmth to the Perfetto RoS Long Sleeve, but it has a more tailored and elegant look, with a slightly more relaxed fit, and it's not quite as protective in wet weather.
WHAT IT IS The Go Jacket is Castelli's most versatile jacket. It can be used as a light shell in mild conditions or go to cold conditions by adding insulating layers underneath. Stretchy, comfortable, breathable, windproof, water resistant, elegant, and lightweight, this jacket has it all. Get out and Go.
When the challenge is distance rather than speed, this jacket brings warmth and comfort with styling that looks right both on the bike and at the food stop.|We're doing more and more long adventure rides. Sometimes that means rides with major elevation changes. Or riding through the cold of night and the heat of the day. Or multiday bikepacking rides. This jacket shines in those situations because it provides a lot of insulation and warmth when you need it, but it packs down small in your seat bag when you don't need it. |The outer layer is a fabric you've seen on some high-end down jackets from some big brands. We like it because it's so light yet it keeps the wind out. Then on the inside, Polartec® Alpha® Direct is the lightest, most packable, and highest-wicking insulation available. It's warm like a synthetic down but doesn't require an inner layer that would reduce breathability and add weight. |For your next Unlimited adventure, just stick this jacket and a GORE-TEX Idro Jacket in your bag and you're ready for anything.
WHAT IT IS The jacket that's very warm yet extremely packable for your adventure or multiday rides. Woven microfiber windproof outer layer with Polartec® Alpha® Direct insulation.
