Here's what others have to say...



    Castelli offers, arguably, the greatest line-up of performance cycling clothing in the world. I think the problem here is that this is a *very* difficult category to pull off. There really is no such thing as a $100 jacket that is rain-proof and that breathes well. It doesn't exist. In any company's line up.

    This is why Castelli makes their Gabba line of water-resistant, wind-proof, light jackets that breathe great. Indeed, the Gabba jackets are iconic for how well they work (and are favorites in the pro peleton). And Castelli makes their Tempesta "full" rain-proof jacket (which *is* packable at 200 g) made with expensive EVent textile. But no, none of these jackets is <$150.

    If you are looking for a good $100 packable lightweight wind jacket, try Castelli's newer "Velo" jacket at $90 (it is vented better along the sides). Or better yet perhaps try the wind-proof and rain-proof Castelli "Misto" light jacket -on sale here for only $85!

    The most breathable rain/wind jackets are in the $200 to $300+ range by Castelli, Gore, Sportful, Showers Pass, etc. A $100 lightweight packable jacket is really for insurance -during- a ride.


    Poor design and white is actually clear

    • Height: 5'8"
      Weight: 165 lbs
      Size Purchased: Medium

    Didn't expect much from the jacket due to the price, but it still came in below those expectation. Castelli should quit making this jacket given the quality of their other products. Also, the white is more "clear" than white.


    Not as nice as Sottile - disappointing

    • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it

    I was excited to get what I thought was this year's version of the Sottile rain jacket. It isn't even close. The material is less comfortable and less breathable. The fit is horrible compared to the Sottile. The body is cut fat and the arms are cut short (not exactly a cycling fit).

    I'm disappointed to say that everything is wrong with this jacket, and it's a shame because I love the Sottile.


    This thing is junk

    • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it
    • Fit:Runs small

    I bought this in size M. It was tiny (medium is usually a bit big on me) and I was sweating after zipping it up. It is very plastic and not well made. Honestly, it feels like the kind of thing you would get for free, like from a bank or a store. I can not even imagine wearing this thing on a bike ride.


    not what i expected

      maybe it's me...i was expecting a jacket with pockets in the back...not the case. i was expecting that i wouldn't sweat like a pig and that the sleeves of this jacket wouldn't stick to my bare arms when i did wear it on a cool morning ride and later during a brief shower. the vents were useless. no, i made a bad decision. the only saving grace is that it really looks good.

      I totally agree, it was my first castelli jacket almost turned me off of castelli. You get what you paid for.

      It mentions louvered side vents, do these...

      It mentions louvered side vents, do these work well?

      Strikes me as a gimmick. I own the Leggero Jacket and see no reason why regular seam vents aren't good enough. I guess the theory is that these 'louvered' vents might keep water out better, but I've never had water in the Leggero's vents.


      Good Value

        Got the white color, which is partially transparent. So beware if that is an issue for you. Looks nice and the extra long tail will keep you dry from wheel spray. It's a real athletic cut and not at all blousy . I'm 6'0" and 188lbs and the XL is just right over a thin base layer and long sleeve jersey. If I had much more on underneath I'd need a bigger size than that. So, as with all Castelli gear - size up. This appears to be well made and a good value for $50.
