Mistral Pro Jacket

Rated 5.00 out of 5 based on 7 customer ratings
(7 customer reviews)


The goal of our Mistral garment range, is to keep the rider warm, regardless if it is cold, raining or driving wind. The Mistral Pro will give you complete body protection from the worst weather.

We aimed to make the ‘Pro’ also a versatile, Deep Winter garment, to permit the rider to regulate their temperature as the conditions change.

We have offset the zip , to prevent zip overlapping zip bulk-and provide smooth venting. Unzipping the outer layer, by 5 or 10 cm  permits indirect air entry to keep the core at your chosen temperature. As we have added a dual-layer front to the garment; The outer membrane can be unzipped completely,  when the body is working hardest- but the inner, insulating layer remains closed, preventing drafts or chills.

The main membrane material has a brushed inner fabric, making it warmer than the conventional Mistral Jacket and we have also added a waterproof, phone pocket in this Pro version.

The Three layer, German membrane fabric which was designed for military use, has been DWR treated for better water shedding. There are lots of soft shell fabrics out there.  The goal of this jacket is to keep you warm while riding in ALL conditions.  Driving rain or strong north winds, your chest will be free from chills.

Tested this winter with just a long sleeve base layer from -2 to 8 degrees.

One of our riders who used it on a recent event describes it best :

“I had a warm chest, on a fast descent, in a thunderstorm…unreal”

    This review is purely on first impressions, feel and fit as I have only taken delivery of it this evening.
    The look of the jacket is VERY impressive; a smooth, matt black material with a lovely red stripe down the middle of the back. There are 3 rear pockets at the rear; the ones on each side are very spacious and the one in the middle is ideal for a mobile phone. There is reflective material at the back as well. It’s nice to see that it’s sewn on as opposed to printed on as that usually peels off after a short while.
    Opening the front of the jacket is achieved by unvelcroing a 3/4 length flap and then unzipping the outer jacket. This reveals the inner zipped chest cover. After a session of hill climbing and overheating you can open the outer jacket with the inner chest cover stopping you from losing too much heat. Afyer having cooled down a bit, just zip the your jacket up again.
    The feel if the jacket when on is VERY comfortable its almost as if youre not wearing it. It’s then you realise that the rear drop at the bottom of the jacket really does go a long way down and has a superb gripper finish to stop it riding up.
    On first impressions this is everything that the Castelli Alpha jacket dreamed of being ….but never was.
    Excellent choice of material
    Lovely understated colour scheme
    Incredibly comfortable.
    I’m a 44″ chest. The Galibier sizing stated XXL. I bought XXL. it fits perfectly.
    Just can’t wait to get out on the road in it now!

    Wore this last night doing some fast flats in about 4c. Then I opened up the collar to let the air in, but the inner layer meant that I didn’t get cold, just cooled down. Perfect.

    The fit for me was great. The drop tail is long at the back which at first I thought excessive. But on the bike it keeps you covered and provides easy access to the rear pockets. I love the fact that you can easily access anything in these pockets with gloves hands.

    The quality of the materials is that of a much more expensive jacket. What a bargain.

    I can see me wearing this out on every ride this winter.

    Also delivery was as usual quick and efficient.

    Got the original mistral jacket in black & red which I’ve used for over 2-3 years & has been awesome
    So obviously when Galibier launches the pro I didn’t hesitate to purchase
    Arrived today & as usual super accurate fit
    Looks & sits great when on
    Will try on ride on Sunday
    Know this will be excellent as usual
    I’ve got a big range of Galibier products & they never fail to impress me
    Brilliant products

    I wore this jacket for the first time this morning at 3’C, damp and a slight wind with a base layer and very thin summer riding top underneath.

    It kept me really warm throughout but not too hot, I had to open the vent for a short period on a Hill but overall I really am very pleased with this jacket.

    T feels excellent quality and will be using this for the rest of the winter without fail. Regarding size, I am 42” chest, 179cm and 89kg so opted for XL, this is an excellent fit, not too tight or baggy though I might have got away with an L but don’t like it too tight and it leaves room for thicker layers underneath should I need to.

    This was also the first Galibier cycle clothing I have bought so will be looking out for more great kit at a great price in the future!

    Ordered my Mistral Pro jacket Sunday night and it arrived Wednesday, even after me emailing a size change. No problem the right one turned up. Thanks guys, much appreciated.
    Went out in a brisk, cold wind this weekend having just swapped my usual jacket for this one. I was extremely toasty. Can now loose a layer and still be warm. Never thought I could be warm on a winter ride. Excellent jacket. Don’t think about it, just get one. You won’t regret it.
    Now, if I can just sort my fingers out….

    I ordered the jacket as soon as i saw it on the Sunday and received it on the Wednesday, thanks to a an email received back at the need of last year I was lucky to get a 10% discount of the is amazing piece of kit.
    Even without trying it on you can see and feel the quality of garment, who needs big Italian brand names when you can get a far superior garment for a honest price.
    This isn’t my fist purchase I have bought and summer top, gloves and socks. But this was a major investment for me trying to find the holy grail of a jacket that actually keeps you warm and dry in the winter months.
    I ventured out Saturday with my normal deep winter baselyer on, and an hour or so later regretted that decision, I have never been so warm in such low temps, The main zip was open most of the ride allowing me to cool down, but the most amazing part is the core warmer as I’m calling it, what a great feeling to have a warm midriff whilst trying to circulate some air. Kudos to Galibier for this idea.
    The only down side to owning this jacket is that it has shown me that I need to invest in the bib tights now as my legs were rather obviously colder than I never knew they were before.
    I bought a large size which is not normally my size but after changing my summer jersey to a large I didn’t want to risk it, it was perfect as i wasn’t looking for a race fit. The Medium would have been bang on size i suspect , but the extra inch or so give me that little bit more flexibility.
