When a thermal jersey and base layer are still leaving you with a chill at the end of your late fall or winter rides, switch to a hardworking protective like Santini's Meridian Winter Jacket. Designed to block out freezing temperatures and the worst winter conditions, the jacket will move with you as you ride and allow you to get your miles in no matter what the forecast calls for. Santini constructs the jacket with its proprietary two layer Warmsant fabric, which uses a windproof outer layer to protect the insulating fleece inner layer from icy gusts and pelting rain. Not just included for softness, the thermal fleece creates a warm microclimate next to your skin, keeping heat close to your body while wicking moisture away from your skin to keep you warm and dry. Santini adds an eye catching nod to its Italian heritage with the classic logo across the front of the Meridian, and the bright colors and reflective strip on the back of the jacket ensure you'll stay visible to other road users during somberly lit winter rides. Use the three rear pockets to stow ride essentials, and rest assured that the fit follows modern winter cycling apparel standards, eschewing yesteryear's billowing outer layers in favor of clean, contoured silhouettes you won't be embarrassed to be seen in at the coffee shop after your ride.
