Keep cranking under the scorching sun.
Ready to tackle lengthy climbs and attack sprints, the Castelli Women's Promessa Sleeveless Jersey keeps you cool and comfortable on blistering hot rides. Its sleeveless design and mesh panels channel cool(er) outside air over your underarms for rapid sweat evaporation. Stratus Plus dual-layer fabric wicks moisture off your body, promoting evaporative cooling when the rising summer sun threatens to derail your midday ride. Other features include a heat-transfer Castelli logo that pops nicely against the jersey's brightly colored body, as well as three back pockets for handy storage and retrieval of your essentials.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs small
This jersey is not as soft and stylish as the color-blocked Protagonista jersey, but does the job. It has pink banding on the armholes - see the picture.
This jersey does not have a full zipper - I missed that in the description, my fault. It also does not have a zippered pocket on the back - just the usual three pockets. They are deep enough so stuff doesn't fall out, but I like the security of being able to zip my ID and keys.
On the bike, feels good - it's so humid right now, even sweat is sweating, so riding cool is not possible. Not the jersey's fault.
As I mentioned before, the material is not as soft as the Protagonista. Therefore, it doesn't stretch quite as much and seems to run a bit small. Still fits adequately, though.
Based on the average rating I am giving this, I would not recommend this product unless you want to grab a good deal from a good manufacturer. There are better available.
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Ordered Riviera Blue, got one with loud pink trim instead. If you want the all blue, call the order in to make sure you get the right one. Probably a very nice jersey if you like the colors.
Nice jersey! Runs just a little small.

I measure 35" chest and 25" waste and typically wear an XS or S. The small in this jersey is just a bit smaller than I would expect, but it fits well enough for me to keep it. If in doubt on the size, you might consider sizing up. Quality and fabric seems great and I purchased the matching Castelli shorts which looks super together.
