Alpha RoS 2 Light Jacket

Be seen in brilliant orange contrast through dark, wintery mist and rain showers with the Castelli Alpha RoS 2 Light Jacket. The lightweight shell protects you from irritating transitional weather as you roll towards summer. With honor, it inherits all the winning qualities of the Alpha RoS 2, but in a more breathable, lightweight design. GORE-TEX on the front and sleeves shields your torso from misty rain and chilled wind, while the lighter insulating layer of the RoS 2 Light manages to keep you comfortable in on hard-hitting training rides as body-heat builds. Nano Flex Xtra Dry on the back adds a thin barrier that repels rain while promoting additional heat loss and sweat evaporation.

The extremely versatile shell begs to be so much more as the three rear pockets provide ample room for valuables and snacks. The semi-fitting cut allows room for your favorite baselayer or training jersey without a sacrificing range of motion or freedom.

  • A transitional weather performance jacket for dedicated riders
  • Ideal complement to the Alpha RoS 2 Jacket
  • Nanotechnolgy on back sheds water while letting heat escape
  • Alpha double layer construction seals out wind and mist on the road
  • Inner insulation of lightweight Prosecco Strada manages heat build-up
  • Suited well training rides ranging from 45-59 degrees F
  • Limited edition brilliant orange colorway

Nice Addition to a Winter Kit

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: XL

Overall a good addition to winter riding. I've used this in upper 30s, lower 40s degree F dry weather with good results. Base layering is key, as well as using a long sleeve jersey underneath. It breaths well, yet maintains your core temperature. The usual Castelli smaller-than-normal sizing: I'm 5'8", 176 lbs with a 40" chest and the XL fits me well (snug everywhere, but not too tight). Back pockets are right-sized, the lower-left zipper pocket is a secure spot for car keys. The bright red is perfect for visibility, the sleeves long enough to cover past my wrists, and the rubberized bottom hem ensures it doesn't creep up. It's pricey, but the construction is impeccable and I would expect it to wear well over the years.

Perfect for PNW rain rides

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: xl

I've had an original Castelli Alpha for a few years now and love it. But, it was a little too warm for the 42-50 degree days that are typical in Oregon winters. This new RoS light edition is perfect for what and how I ride. Water repellency seems to be very good so far and the lighter weight means that a little warmer glove and hat combo works without cooking me. The side pocket for a phone is convenient, but just a bit difficult to zip while moving.
I'm a fan of Castelli jackets and this is one of the best. True to Castelli sizing, I'm an XL here, am size large in Rapha.
