Fresca Full-Zip Jersey
Dreary fall days and early spring rides might scatter the roads with depressingly dark winter kits, but here at Competitive we think we're the masters of our own light, and the Castelli Fresca Full-Zip Jersey brings a fresh light to cooler weather jerseys. It's built with Warmer fabric on the body and sleeves, built to trap in some heat, but without overdoing it, making this piece ideal for temps in the low 50's up to mid 60's. The bright and bold sublimated print ads colorful character to your getup, with a sunny disposition that reminds us: just because the sun is hiding behind the clouds doesn't mean it's not there at all. The jersey is equipped with a drop-tail hem for coverage when you're in the drops, and features three rear pockets to stash your riding essentials, plus reflective piping to help you stay seen, if the bold pattern doesn't do that on its own.

- Q & A
Super vibrant colors!
- Fit: True to size
This jersey is has both yellow and chartreuse green in it. I ordered a large based on the other review, but it's a tiny bit loose with gaps when I'm in neutral on the bike, so I'm sending it back and ordering a medium. (I ordered a medium in the "pink" and it fits perfectly.) I usually wear medium in Castelli jerseys and this one is true to size. If you want it a little less form fitting, order up a size. For reference, I'm 5'10" and about 148#. I haven't worn the jersey yet, but the quality is good and it feels toasty. (I still wear a 10-year old Castelli jersey and it's held up surprisingly well. This one feels the same.)
Great fit but color WAY OFF
- Fit: True to size
I haven't worn this jersey yet but the quality seems good and it feels warm. I'm taller - 5'10" (148#, 34D) - and this jersey is perfect for women with long arms. And I find the torso to be long enough as well (I don't have a long torso though). I usually wear a Medium in this brand of jerseys but I ordered both a Medium and Large. The M fits well and is form fitting - snug but not stretched out - whereas the large has some gaps when in neutral position on the bike. I ordered the jersey in all three colors and my only real complaint is that the color represented in the Competitive Cyclist pictures of the "brilliant pink" jersey is way off. It is not brilliant pink at all, but more orangey reddish (??) and the blue is more teal-ish, not at all royal or lapis blue. The actual glacier jersey is closest to the CC picture.

This is a jersey for the cold weather. It is thick, bright colors and very attractive. Returned because it runs very small.
