Castelli produces a few pieces every year that are directed at Castelli fans who appreciate a finely made casual garment that serves off bike fashion and regular active use. The Scuba Hoodie is so named because because of the slim cut and the nature of the fabric and how it hangs or sits on the body. When you pull the hood over your head, it also has a closer fit than most hoodies. This is not a hoodie for everyone, but that is the point. It is a fine piece of Castelli casual gear that has some fabric performance you'll be accustomed to.
The technical fabric is a dual layer composition that offers stretch, warmth and wicking. The outer layer is a nylon/elastane knit with a smooth outer face. The inner layer is brushed fleece that holds heat and will also remove excess moisture, making this a great post-ride hoodie. It has clean look and sleek style, can has two front pockets for a casual feel. The hood has a drawstring, which will most likely be more for effect than use, though it it perfectly functional. Of more interest and use will be the dual pull zipper, top and bottom, a nice option for casual lounging or generally active use.
