The goal when Castelli started work on the ROS Alpha Jacket was to create a winter jacket that is good as it can be for cold days. A jacket offering supreme comfort and breathability, a jacket that can adapt to changing temperatures and conditions.
Additionally, they wanted a jacket that if you did get caught in a heavy shower or the day turned for the worst, you would make it back home warm and mainly dry. A jacket designed for winter riders with you not having to take a cape out with you. As close to a one box solution as modern fabrics and technologies allow.
Please NOTE. The Castelli ROS Jacket is not intended to replace a full shell jacket for prolonged heavy rain. It’s a bit like the way a Gabba works (on warmer days) so for 90% of the time it’s all you will ever need this winter. And for nearly every cyclist that is enough.
ROS - Rain or Shine engineering provides insulation and breathability for cold dry conditions with great protection during wet rides.
The Castelli Alpha Jacket is the perfect UK winter jacket for most riders, with great weather protection and adaptable insulation & ventilation. It’s not fully waterproof but do you need it to be?
- Articulated Collar for better fit
- Gore Windstopper 150 fabric is windproof highly breathable and offers great protection from rain and spray
- Seam sealing on the shoulders with a reduced seam main body and double stitching work to keep you dry in all but the worst conditions
- Dual layer Alpha construction separates insulation and protection to create better ventilation, moisture evaporation and breathability
- Part covered waterproof YKK Vislon zipper lays flat and slides easily
- Raw edge waist follows the body contours, lays flat and is low bulk
- Raw edge wrists create a perfect interface with Castelli gloves
- The stretch fabrics combined with the latest advanced patterning creates a close fit on a wide range of body types
- Back ventilation for greater comfort
- Castelli silicone text gripper at waist keeps the jacket from riding up
- Front zippered key pocket - with waterproof zip
- 3 large open rear pockets with laser cut reflective drainage patterning
- Sizes Men's S-3XL
- Weight 515 g (Size L)
- Castelli Comfort Range -5 to 10 c
- 100% Polyamide
Occasionally, without notice, manufacturers change product design and/or specifications.

3XXL was needed for my 42 inch chest but does fit well Wore a merino base layer under top of Castelli bib tights and did feel cool by end of ride Water resistance yet to be assessed but there does seem. a gap between what Castelli claim and reality of some user reviews so I will find out soon!

Second ride in this jacket today - 45 min commute. It rained and I was soaked through in less than 5 minuets. The ROS means rain or shine but unless the one I have is faulty it's not waterproof at all. Very disjointed as I bought this for a winter commuting jacket so I didn't need to carry a waterproof - I still need one
