Giordana Acqua + Vento 100 Winter Jacket
Extreme Comfort in Extreme Conditions
The AV 100 Jacket is a super lightweight windfront jacket that can double as a jersey on foul weather days. It follows the form of the other Acqua+Vento jackets including many of the same signature features. With a high collar, long tail, aggressive ergonomic fit and plenty of reflectivity it is unmistakably Aqua+Vento.
The shell is a 3-layer stretch fabric that is 100% waterproof, windproof and breathable. The back is water repellant Acqua Zero Eco® treated ThunderbikeTM. This new version of AZ provides more protection, repels water and has a very low absorption rate so it retains less water and therefore remains lighter than untreated fabrics. Even when soaked it retains its breathability aiding in efficient core temperature management.
Who's it for?

The entire jacket receives a DWR treatment, which adds an extra layer of water resistance to the garment. The treatment creates additional surface tension, suspending water beads to the outer fringe of the garment where it rolls off before having the opportunity to penetrate the fabric.
The front panels and sleeves utilize a triple layer fabric with a 100% breathable, windproof and waterproof membrane sandwiched between the DWR treated face fabric and an ultra-light, shear lining. The result is an impermeable barrier against the elements. The membrane’s breathability allows moisture vapor to escape, facilitating CT management by preventing overheating.
Acqua Zero EcoTM treated fabric, derived from the water repellant G-Shield Collection, is used on the back and under arm panels. It provides more breathability and reduces overall weight. This time tested fabric is low profile, hugs the body, and has soft, smooth surface that is comfortable and warm.
The element blocking membrane helps to maintain a constant core temperature during rides in more moderate climbs.
We classify this jersey as "Race Fit". They are built to sit next to your skin for a tight aero fit. If you prefer to have a little room we suggest buying the next size up.
Measuring: To accurately measure your chest, measure across the fullest part of the chest just under your arm pits.
