Dynafit Mezzalama Race Jacket - Women


The Trofeo Mezzalama is an iconic bi-annual spring race that starts at the foot of the Matterhorn and weaves through the Italian Alps in a grueling one-day event. The race brings challenging conditions and traditional race apparel often doesn’t cut it. It’s fitting that Dynafit should make a jacket specifically around the rigors of this race. Where heavier clothing doesn’t breathe well enough and full race-suits aren’t warm enough, the Mezzalama Race Jacket finds its niche. Don’t let the word race throw you off as many people wearing this jacket don’t even use it in a racing capacity. But, the efficiency found in race-inspired designs is impossible to shake once you’ve tried it and is awesome to apply in the backcountry. Built from an abrasion-resistant but soft and flexible Carvico fabric that’s lined with just enough fleece, the jacket is useful in most conditions. When paired with the right baselayer and/or a dose of endorphins, the temperature range is huge. A tight-fitting hood and some thumb holes help seal out the elements and keep you cozy. The Dynafit Mezzalama Race is a layman’s race-jacket, the racer’s cold-weather kit, or an aerobic skier’s quiver-of-one.

  • Premium Carvico fabric is comfortable and abrasion-resistant.
  • Thumb holes help keep the sleeves down and elements out.
  • UV Protection built into the fabric because sunscreen is too heavy to carry.
  • Zippered external skin pockets are placed mid-torso, perfectly in between your backpack straps for easy access, secure skins, and fast transitions.
  • Flat seams increase comfort and minimize hot spots.
  • Siliconized hem helps keep the jacket in place.

Update 2020/21: This jacket was replaced by the Mezzalama 2.
