Updated with three new colors and the addition of a dual-use stow pocket, the Ultralight Jacket will be your go-to ultra lightweight sping/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.

Our jerseys and bib shorts are intended to be form fit, providing compressive support, maximizing performance of the fabrics, and reducing fatigue and chafing. Due to the compressive nature of the fabrics, you will be able to fit into more than one size. Please use the charts below to help determine your optimum size:

The perfect pocket jacket now things are getting a bit warmer. Packs up nice and tight and fits in a jersey pocket with minimal bulk but blocks the wind nicely if you get a chilly front coming in. Only worn it a couple of times because Colorado weather has only had a couple of warm/changeable days, but I can see it's going to be in my jersey pocket likely for the foreseeable future.
Excellent, fit and look!
This is my 2nd Ultra Light Jacket. I love that this windproof fabric is both super light and absolutely windproof. I also have the Ultra Light Vest. Sometimes I double them up which works well and gives me lots of versatility and temperature control.This fabric has more windproofness than any of my other heavier windproof garments. The jacket and vest combined easily fit in one jersey pocket together. I'm 5'4 120 lbs and got a small. It fit's perfectly. I'm also very happy that it came in a bright color! I got the red. So many windproof or waterproof garments (ShakeDry) are black which is not a great color for visibility. My only comment about the fit is that the sleeves are somewhat loose at the wrist/forearm though they don't really flap. Personally I would prefer that they did not put the mesh down the back of the sleeve. It really makes the garment feel more like a vest since the wind can make your arms feel cold. I think that mesh down the side of the body is enough. Since this new fabric is stretchy, I think the sleeves could be a little tighter around the wrist and they could skip the mesh which is also quite delicate. Anyway, I still really like this garment!!
