Smart, lightweight protection

Castelli’s incredibly lightweight, race-inspired Sottile Due Vest can be easily stowed in your jersey pocket to keep you prepared against the elements. The vest is made with a semi-transparent, highly breathable fabric with a 10,000mm waterproof rating. The Sottie Due features an aerodynamic cut with an extended collar and an elongated rear section for added protection. Castelli includes a single zipper on the right side that gives you convenient access to your jersey pockets, and reflective accents are placed throughout the vest for increased visibility in low-light conditions.

Not bad, but very small

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: XXXL

I tried this out based on other Castelli clothing I own. I am usually a 2XL in most of their stuff, sometime I wear a 3XL for a looser fit. This barely fit in a 3XL and was quite uncomfortable. Nicely made, though; I wish it fit me better.

Big Fan

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

The vest does exactly what it needs to. Cuts down on wind and can easily fold up into a back pocket. Downside is the zipper as it does get stuck pretty easily. Otherwise, this is a great product.

Impossible to zip closed, part 2

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Same as the review below. Haven't even attempted to ride with this vest as the zip will not close as it gets caught in the flappy piece of material at the top. Seems that it would be a good product, especially fit-wise, but if it doesn't work as it should, don't even waste your time with it.

Impossible to zip closed

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Nice concept but poorly executed. The flappy bit of zipper garage at the neck snagged every time I tried to zip it closed. The garage needs to be a stiffer, non-snag material. Actually, an emergency vest like this doesn't even need one.

Size Down

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I wear an XL Castelli jersey but needed to downsize to L for this vest. The XL flapped mightily in the wind around the arms and shoulder. It is very packable and does a good job keeping the wind off but I haven't encountered rain yet. I liked the idea of the access zipper in the back but it's not so useful while wearing midweight gloves.
