The Castelli Meccanico Rain Shell, was designed for your hard working mate or team mechanic working the Cross weekend in the pits. Setting up the bikes while your have a coffee, cleaning the bikes mid race and of course cleaning and packing everything up post race. And as we know it usually rains.
The Castelli Meccanico Rain Shell is a tough old thing fully taped sealed and it's reversible (so black side out for cleaning - red side out for handing you a clean bike) It has a big hood and a long length.
We would never recommend you use this for a riding jacket but for everything else that needs doing on a wet event day its ideal.
We also expect to see a lot of Meccanico Rain Shells on supporters in the early season races and of course on racers who are just hanging about, its that kind of jacket.
Please be aware there is a rolling change on this jacket and newer version do not have the contrasting red cuff and hem.
