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.
