Joewrote a review of Castelli Elemento 2 7x(AIR) Jacket - Men's on February 3, 2017
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs small
I agree with positives set forth in the other reviews here. TRUE, this one does fit snug even by Castelli standards. From my perspective that close fit is very good in itself; I find that given my hard to fit v-shape, I'm willing to deal with a jacket being a tad restrictive in the shoulders in order to have a good close fit in the waist. My experience in winter cycling is that snug = warm whereas a relaxed fit lets cold in. Anyway, the one gripe worth passing on is that the rear pockets are just poorly made. The attachment points dividing the three pockets actually started to tear the FIRST time I wore the thing and I'm not particularly hard on my stuff - didn't overload the pockets. Castelli's one flaw generally is that the quality control sometimes fails. I wear it as a mid layer in midwest cold an it works very well. Anyway, it's a fine piece although the retail number of 4 bills is unjustifiable in my opinion. Get is on sale!
