Some may call it finicky, but those of us who covet the highest quality just call it smart. As in, smart enough to know that the top Italian threads will lend themselves to elite levels of performance, smart enough to know that a tapered race-ready fit will keep us streamlined through gale force winds, and smart enough to know what we like, and stick with it. That's why we're so fond of the Giordana NX-G Wind Jacket for Men. This top-tier wind jacket offers superlight protection that fits like a second skin, eliminating obnoxious bunches that whip around in the breeze, and offering unbeatable fabrics for breathable protection while you carve your way down steep canyon roads with whipping winds. The NX-G Wind Jacket is designed to provide a clean cut through the breeze in cool spring months, and early fall rides. It packs down neatly to store in your back jersey pocket for easy carrying on every ride, and with a fit that's streamlined enough for wear on the windiest race days. Its crafted from a lightweight synthetic, and decks you out in fluorescent colors to up your visibility when grey storm clouds are overhead. Cut to ride, it features a high collar to keep wind from sneaking in when you're in the drops, and an extended drop-tail hem for coverage when you're moving fore and aft on the saddle. The fabric itself if highly breathable, though not permeable, so sweat can escape, while the frosty breeze is kept outside. However, if you do need to drop a couple of degrees on a climb, the jacket is equipped with a full-length front zipper to cool your core quickly.
