The Sottile is a great race jacket that is light weight and easily packable. This jacket folds up to next to nothing. Your team jersey and race number will also be visible through the transparent fabric. Unlike the race capes of yesteryear, which were basically plastic, this modern version uses a light, stretchy fabric with underarm mesh inserts to aid breathability and make it fit comfortably. All the details were placed just right, from the high collar to the zippered opening for easy access to a jersey pocket.
