Gore-Tex's technology has been shaking up the wet-weather jacket scene for some time, and now Castelli has adopted its Shakedry technology into the Castelli Idro Pro Jacket.

Shakedry isn't a Castelli technology, and neither is it new. It was created by leading outdoor brand Gore-Tex a couple of seasons ago and is now being used by the Italian brand for this jacket.
