Castelli Duran Wind Vest
After a long, solid morning of small-ring climbing, you reach the summit and stop for a snack. One snack turns into lunch, and before you know if, you're trying to beat the sun back to town. After you've cooled off like that, screaming downhill can be a bone-chilling endeavor, so we recommend the Castelli Duran Wind Vest as a remedy for the cold.
The Duran is built much like your typical wind vest and is designed to be as lightweight and packable as possible. There is a single pocket on the side of the vest. There aren't any cape vents in the back, like you'd see on vests designed for longer trips. The Duran is a descending vest, and while it will function in other roles, riders that typically run warm will find the lack of venting noticeable over the course of a longer ride.
The Castelli Duran Wind Vest comes in Black and in six sizes from Small to XXX-Large.
