Moderate winter.

Giordana's new Acqua+Vento (AV) line runs the protective gamut from dark-side-of-the-moon extreme to lightweight, water-resistant insulation for temperate spring showers. The AV 100 Men's Winter Jacket falls neatly between those two poles by covering your body's leading edges in a three-layer membrane and equipping the less-exposed back and underarms with a DWR-treated thermal material. Giordana claims this combination is suited for "moderate winter conditions," which—in our experience—covers temperatures in the 40s, with weather, layering, and personal preference pushing the range a few degrees up or down.

The AV 100 Winter Jacket owes its protective pedigree to the waterproof, windproof, and breathable membrane mentioned above. While a jacket constructed completely from this stuff would be equal to temperatures in the 30s, Giordana tempers it with rear panels that forgo the wind protection in favor of a more breathable thermal material called Thunderbike. It's got an Acqua Zero Evo DWR treatment to keep water beading and rolling off, but it regulates body temperature to keep you in your comfort zone when conditions don't warrant the nuclear-option of the heavier AV Jackets.

For many of us, this is the perfect amount of protection for cycling through the winter. It's light enough to work as a standalone layer in the 40s, but it can layer into the freezing range either over the top of thermal base layers or as a super domestique mid layer. If you prefer to avoid riding in winter's worst, then the AV 100 Winter Jacket can also serve as something of a barometer. When the temperature is too low or conditions are too extreme for the jacket's midweight protection, then it may be a better day to stay in on the trainer.

The jacket's collar is cut tall with a strategic shape in order to provide comfortable protection while you're bent over in the saddle, and the rear hem is extended to help shield against road spray. That extension is hit with Giordana's reflective Pixel treatment, and reflective details throughout help keep you visible from all angles. Like the rest of the AV line, the jacket is tailored to a racer's body, so you don't have to sacrifice a contoured, flap-free fit for winter protection. It's finished with three standard pockets and a zippered security pocket, which provide space for ride essentials and accessories like spare gloves.

Sizing works for me (YMMV)

  • Size Bought: Large

Just chiming in with another sizing data point. I'm 5'10", 168lbs, 38" chest and the Large fits me quite well, with room for 2 base layers (1 ss + 1 ls). Which is to say, it fits like an American sized Medium.

Sizing is completely wrong.

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I ordered a L after checking sizing chart. It indicated a chest size of 40 to 42 inches for the L size.

Received jacket marked as L. It is way too small for my 39 inch chest. This is such a waste of time and money to sell and ship and return missized product.

Great Jacket but...

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

This is truly a great jacket, the fabric, construction and attention to detail are superb. However, for me, the extended "tail" in the back is way too long, and hangs way too low, I understand the purpose of this extended back, just does not work for my height/torso length and regrettably had to return the item.
But as ALWAY, the service at Competitive Cyclist is world class, awesome prices, FAST delivery, and easy returns.

Unfortunate. What size did you order?

Hi
I ordered a size Large. I'm 5' 10" height, and normal proportion upper body. It really is a great jacket, just too long for me in the back

Second attempt for a jacket my size.

    This was second attempt for a cold weather jacket. Once again does not fit me. I wear an XL jersey but this jacket fits my 16 year old son.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This jacket is really high end product, looks good feels good! I gave it 4 stars as from my experience this jacket will not keep you warm below 50s as claimed that might be used in 40s. You will need 2 extra layers to reach the comfort. Other than that fantastisch!
