De Marchi's Gara Jacket for women fits more like a jersey than a proper jacket, making it a race worthy addition to any cold weather cycling wardrobe. The Roubaix fabric has a brushed interior for warmth, wicking, and breathability, because staying dry is as important to staying warm as keeping the frigid air off your skin. It's also equal to protect against mild winter winds, if not full blown gales. De Marchi updates the standard complement of three rear pockets with an additional rear zippered pocket, an arm pocket, and internal media cord routing. The aesthetics are classic De Marchi, though: elegantly simple and timelessly stylish.
