    Hi Guys, thank you for the detailed review of the Mossa. Just to confirm the Mossa has been lengthened from the front, the zip has been covered to prevent any frontal air penetration. as for the white collar, this seems like a misunderstanding and error for which we apologies sincerely.

    Sizing
    Please note if you ever in doubt between two sizes go for the smaller one. in some of the photos in he article, the Mossa seems little too big, please note the elasticity if the Mossa [ as you mentioned] is very high, this allows you to wear it very snug and insure close contact with the body for quick sweat transfer from the body outwards.
    the Parentini sizing chart is little generous, here is an accurate chart:

    Size 34″ /44cm chest- XS
    Size 36″ /46cm chest – S
    Size 38″ /48cm chest – M
    Size 40″ /50cm chest – L
    Size 42″ /52cm chest – XL
    Size 44″ /54cm  chest – XXL
    Size 46″/56cm  chest – XXXL

    Not sure if i someone in the article mentioned wearing the Mossa without baselayer! the Mossa is to be worn always with baselayer of Polypropylene and not polyester base. merino wool is fine for very cold weather however it will retain the sweat on the body and result in getting cold.

    Seams
    With regards to taped seams,Termosaldato process-applying heat to the seams to seal – will make the seams rigid and the Mossa will lose big part of its elasticity, the water at no point remains still on the seam to go through, if you getting water in, its highly likely from the neck through the helmet, it will take hours for the water to be still over the seam to start dripping through it, in microscopic amount though.
    very important aspect to the Mossa, is that the Windtex Stormshield is a system not just fabric, the way it regulates the body temperature and controls the sweat release keeps you warm even if you had some water coming through is very heavy down-pour. that’s due to the Mossa being warm as a cape, the Mossa fabric retains the heat released by the body and lets evaporate at steady pace, this means the outer shell covering the body is forming a warm environment for the body to remain DRY yet warm.

    As one rider said, once you put the Mossa on, you don’t need anything else, no Gilets, no rain capes and no jackets. also its so light you forget you have it on.

    We wish you safe and happy riding with the Parentini Mossa.
