A Handsome Way to Brave the Elements.
De Marchi is no stranger in manufacturing high-end, functional, and stylish cycling attire since they have been doing it since 1946 and continue to do so in Italy today. The brand continually looks for the most technical fabrics and tailors them in a way that is both highly functional and look great. De Marchi products exude quality right out of the packaging and the Men's Training Jacket is no exception.
This winter jacket is designed to be lightweight while the Windproof front panel offers maximum protection against wind chill. It’s really difficult to detect any chill thanks to the technical fabric on the body and arms. Roubaix fabric, which has great breathability, is used at the back and sides of the jacket where you will also find 4 pockets (1 zip) to carry all of your winter riding needs. An additional pocket is on the upper right sleeve. It is often a fine line balancing protection from the cold and breathability at the same time, but the De Marchi Training jacket walks this with aplomb. If you are used to sweating or getting extremely cold after a while in your current cycling jacket, you shouldn't accept this as the norm and instead invest in this jacket as it will provide several seasons of cold weather cycling enjoyment. During winter days below freezing, this jacket accompanies us up climbs, on long descents and windy flats and we don't notice any excessive sweating nor did we freeze in strong winds. The soft inner fabric works well with the base layer or jersey to ensure your comfort equilibrium is kept in check.

Simple yet more than sufficient for being a nice all around training jacket. This soft-shell jacket has everything you need for hitting the road in the cool weather. With wind protection in the front, It is a nice option for windy conditions and has multiple pockets for storage. 3 good sized open pockets on the back with a small zip compartment in the bottom right. The middle pocket is larger than the two side ones with plenty of room to fit a jacket and a base layer. The pocket on the inside of the left arm is a nice addition to stash nutrition with easy accessibility. The semi fitted jacket fits slim but is a very stretchable material giving ultimate comfort. It is meant to be ridden with a base layer or two without fitting too tight. I wouldn’t put this in the same category as a full on winter jacket. I see it as more of an option for the low-mid 40’s at the coolest. It could be worn comfortably with a light base layer into the high 50’s. Like most other De Marchi tops, the size Medium fit me well at 5’10” 155lbs. As a very breathable piece, it is a great option for the racer doing intervals in the cool Fall weather. I would also suggest this for someone looking to put in base miles in a comfortable fitted jacket. Really nice quality jacket that is versatile
