Nice looking vest, and super light. However, what is with Castelli's sizing these days ( both in bibs and tops)? I have never worn anything but Large with Castelli over the years and a large in this is more like a regular castelli medium. Definitely size up- I should have but decided to wear it, It doesn't really give much due to the fabric.
One cool feature is that is packs down to an included zippered bag for easy packing in your jersey pocket.
It does fit a bit short as others have said, particularly in the front, so it is not a vest that you can really use for running or other sports which is kind of a bummer.

Went from an older Giro Pneumo to the Prolight. Fit is similar, the Prolight seems a bit more bare-bones in construction, padding, straps, but perhaps in a good way. It is definitely lighter. I like the elastic properties of the head cradle system as opposed to the regular Giro brain lock (or whatever they call it).
After looking around at helmets at my LBS's that retailed for 200-250, I was pretty happy with this deal on Bonktown.
