Incredibly comfortable PFD. Highly recommend this product. I had to return only because I needed a dedicated pocket for marine radio. Aside from now having that feature in a Kokatat PFD... I really miss this PFD and would go back to it in a heartbeat. Just wish it had a spot for my radio...

In my opinion at least. These have held up the best. The Kiss3 chamois is more than adequate. Their performance in wet weather is simply impressive. Coupled with a pair of Nanoflex leg warmers and you are good to go into the 30s/40s.

Unlike my other Castelli pieces, the stitching has held up quite well.

Order your typical Castelli size, they tend to run small compared to other brands.

I am very fond of these bibs. As long as you know your sizing for Castelli, you will be in good shape. They feel the most comfortable to me of all the Castelli bibs I have tried. Likely through the use of various fabrics strategically. The recommendation to wear sunscreen underneath the one panel should definitely be taken to heart. My issue with these is the quality. Castelli has really been letting me down as of late.

It works. Not a favorite of mine only because of some stitching issues. I feel that this is slowly becoming the new normal for Castelli. Inconsistency, that is. It's certainly worth giving this bib a try. As you can see below, it's quite loved by most who try it. The Progetto chamois is as good as described and would certainly make this bib worth a shot.

I got mine on sale. I was a bit leary as I had not used Gore Bike Wear all that much. This jacket has entirely caused me to convert my kit over to Gore (slowly). No, it isn't "Aero", but it gets the job done. Keeps me warm with a base layer beneath it down into the low 20s - teens. Cannot recommend this enough.

I have the Neon Yellow/Black color, and boy does it pop. I feel very safe using this on my cold winter road rides.

I personally dislike the fit. The windstopper coverage leaves a bit to be desired as well if we're talking about a winter cycling tight. As far as fit/sizing goes... typical Castelli. Size up!

I would recommend the Gore Bike Wear Xenon series for those really looking to ride. Far more comfy, significantly warmer. Overall, it's a better quality product. Castelli has been letting me down as of late.
