Beautifully made product. However, the sizing is way way off. I am 5’11” under 150lbs and ended up with an xl which still fits snuggly. So, I suggest going 2 sizes above your usual size. Return to CC of the L was easy. No issues and free returns.

i have an alpha ros light jacket that i really like so i took a shot on this as well. i have worn this a few times in temperatures between ~5°C (~40°F) and ~10°C (~50°F) and couldn't be more pleased. the fit is perfect; no complaints.

Bought XL (see previous review) and returned for an XXL. Snug fit, but when riding in the cooling fall days, I don't notice the vest. I use it over the jersey, and the vest keeps me snug and warm on my road bike rides into the hills. Still, be aware that it sizes small.

My best vest - the material is the key with this vest. I have several other top quality vests, but this is the winner hands down. It blocks the wind and light precipitation. When unzipped it doesn't flap in the wind! The material is curved to the body to prevent the flapping.

This vest is excellent. It's warm and windproof but breathes well so you don't overheat. It's water-resistant and did a great job keeping my core warm and dry on a recent ride with a constant drizzle and lots of roadspray. It's incredibly lightweight and rolls up small so you can stow it easily. It is snug and close-fitting, so I'd say it runs slightly small. My experience is limited of course, but I'd order whatever size you would order if you were buying a form-fitting jersey. The one sizing thing that isn't quite perfect is the height. It's shorter than most of my jerseys, so my jersey sticks out, especially if I've got stuff in my jersey pockets. That's surprising especially when wearing a Castelli jersey (you'd think they'd be sized the same way), but on the other hand, I've only worn the vest with club-fit jerseys so maybe it's not an issue with form-fitting. I also am proportionally taller in my torso than some folks my height, so it could just be me. In any event, this is a pretty minor issue; it's aesthetic not functional. All the way around I love Castelli's Rossa Corsa products and this vest doesn't disappoint.

I like the Goretex and the light weight. Bought the XL, based on my chest and waist measurement, and had to return for the 2XL, which is still snug. (I have an American football player's build -- 218 pounds and 6 feet tall). Great quality but runs real small. The return and exchange worked great and was prompt.

This vest is top-notch! I was in between buying this and another perfetto, and I’m glad I got this. Very versatile piece and I can take it in slightly warmer temperatures than I do my perfetto light short sleeve.
