Updated with three new colors and the addition of a dual-use stow pocket, the Ultralight Jacket will be your go-to ultra lightweight spring/summer outer layer. The new stow pocket will hold valuables while wearing the jacket on a ride or fold it inside the pocket while not in use to maximize storage space in your jersey pocket.
Pre-dawn departures. High mountain passes. Unexpected temperature drops. We made the Ultralight Jacket out of windproof Japanese milled Pertex Quantum Air combined with Veil Mesh panels for stretch and breathability for the most versatile and packable layer of wind protection available. DWR treated to shed the passing shower and cut with a close fit to minimize flapping.
Fabric: 100% Nylon
Made in: Italy
Caring for your cycling gear properly will extend its life and maintain its performance, fit and quality. It’s important to consider these instructions carefully. While we stand behind the quality of our apparel, not adhering to these instructions will void our warranty against manufacturing & defects.
We strongly recommend washing your new gear before wearing it. You’ll find that your apparel will soften, and fit & comfort will improve after washing - especially with bibs & shorts.
Machine wash cool, 86°F (30°C) with like colors: Cooler temps maintain better longevity for your apparel. Like colors, especially lights, will remain more vibrant when washed with like colors.
Use mild detergent. Do not bleach or dry clean: Strong detergents & bleach can break down the fibers and elastane in the garment, dramatically reducing its life.
Close all fastenings: this goes also for other garments mixed in with your cycling apparel. Velcro closures or clasps can catch on stitching or trim and damage your garments.
Lay flat to dry. Do not tumble dry: Do not put your cycling apparel in the dryer. Even on low heat. Don’t do it. Heat can damage fabric, elastic and heat transfer logos very easily. Lycra (Elastane) is used throughout our garments to provide compression and support and is susceptible to damage from heat and can irreparably damage your apparel.
How do your jackets fit?
Our jackets are patterned in the riding position, with a tight fit across the chest and arms with a more forward position. This is intentional to reduce flapping and extra fabric across the chest while riding. When standing, the jacket will feel tight across the chest, shoulders and torso. The arm length might appear long as well. However, the intended fit is tailored for on-the-bike positioning where the shoulders and torso no longer feel tight and the extra arm length hits the wrists in the appropriate spot. Constructed without extra fabric to flap around - it should fit tight over your jersey (with enough room for a long sleeve and base layer), but shouldn’t appear baggy. We select fabrics that have some elasticity to allow for freedom of movement even with a tailored fit to accommodate some range of fit within each size.

This jacket performs as it promises. It's lightweight enough that I can pack in a jersey pocket without any hesitation for a long ride that may encounter multiple temperature ranges. Last time I took it out, I didn't ever need it but I wasn't even aware I had been carrying it the whole time! Arms are a perfect length and tailored well for minimal flapping.
