When the temperatures start to drop on your daily commute, adding layers to your ensemble can be tricky. If you're already carrying your work gear in a backpack and navigating bike lanes and morning traffic, you don't want to be any more weighed down than you have to be. Giordana's Tempo Vero Trade Jacket is the brand's warmest winter jacket, but its efficient, functional fabrics keep you protected from the elements without adding extra bulk. As you face cold gusts of wind or pelting rain on city streets, the Tempo Vero's three layer Windtex front panels block the elements out, keeping you warm and dry. On the back, sides, and under the sleeves, Giordana adds its Roubaix microfleece for insulation to keep you warm on wet or dry days while wicking moisture away from your base layer or jersey to manage your microclimate. Giordana was mindful of the demands of commuters and layering when creating the Tempo Vero, so the fit is more forgiving than what you might expect from a traditional Italian cycling jacket especially along the Windtex paneled front. The Roubaix fleece provides some contouring, but the overall fit is more focused on comfort than on aerodynamics. Stash ride essentials or nutrition in the three external rear pockets, and you'll be prepared to continue cycling through the winter months.
