Giordana Acqua + Vento 200 Short Sleeve Winter Jacket
Extreme Comfort in Extreme Conditions
The AV 200 Short Sleeve Jacket provides heat retention, moisture management plus wind and water resistance similar to the AV 300 but for milder winter conditions. The AV 200 can be used in a wide range of temperatures through layering and, as with all Aqua+Vento jackets, its performance is dependent on your intensity level.
The AV 200 Short Sleeve Jacket is a mid-weight model that follows the form of the warmer and heavier Acqua+Vento jackets. It includes many of the same signature features, an eVent DVStretchTM shell, high collar, long tail, and lots of reflectivity. It differs from the AV 200 Long Sleeve Jacket in that it is a full membrane garment with a lighter weight version of DVStretchTM used throughout.
Who's it for?
For the rider who cycles in milder winter conditions putting in base miles or intense interval efforts and demands an aerodynamic amd lightweight cold weather jacket.
- Tall ergo collar forms to the neck for protectection
- 3 cargo pockets and zippered side pocket
- Soft fabric cuff with elasticity
- Long reflective ducktail protects rider’s backside
- Hi-vis reflective logos and Pixel® reflective accents for visibility
The front outer surface of the chest and sleeves receive 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 they can roll off before having the opportunity to penetrate the fabric.
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 a soft, smooth surface that is comfortable and warm.
The outer layer of Event® DVStretchTM is a triple layer fabric with a breathable windproof water resistant membrane sandwiched between the DWR treated face fabric and a printed fleece lining. The result is an impermeable barrier against the elements. The membrane’s breathability allows moisture vapor to escape instantly facilitating Core Temperature management by preventing overheating. The AV 200 Short Sleeve Jacket has great elasticity to ensure a perfect, non-constricting performance fit.
The element blocking membrane of the AV 200 Jacket helps maintain an optimal Core Temperature during rides in more moderate climates with inclement weather.
Reflective accents created via a revolutionary new refractive fabric, Pixel®, provide reflectivity without sacrificing the breathability qualities of the fabric.
