Sizing Information for Castelli Clothing:
Great performance. High level of wind proofing whilst breathable.
Great quality as always from castelli, went for a medium as I'm a 36 inch chest and it's a nice snug fit. Material feels warm and nice reflective pipping. Great service from merlin as usual and fast free delivery.
Great cold weather gear. No pockets, but perfect for cooler morning rides that lead into warmer mid-day hours. It keeps you warm when you need it and then packs small enough to fit in a jersey pocket later in the day.
As usual with Castelli, you have to size up about two sizes compared to other company's sizes in order to get the size right. (I'm 5'10" and 190lbs, and the 2XL fits perfectly.)
Merlin Cycles had this at an excellent price and delivered it to me overseas pretty quickly, which is not always true of other UK vendors.
This is an excellent product. Having persevered with the rain jackets for few years as outer shell I wish I purchased this much earlier. It breathes fantastically and is toasty warm for winter in Brisbane (10+degrees C) with arm warmers. As suggested by other reviewers I purchased the next sixe up: XL (181 cms / 88kgs I usually go L) and it fits snuggly with the arms a smidge tight not particularly distracting.
It arrived within the time specified.
Only down side is the back is black - I had assume it was red (the colour I bought, which I did for better visibility).
A superb Cycling Vest in the best materials.
I feel the sizing has been adjusted on Castelli products. I usually wear a XL with their tops but I have had return the top for an exchange for a L
I hummed and hawed for a long time on which gilet to opt for on the merlin site. The castelli fawesome 2 jacket is an ideal balance of weight and waterproofness for those slightly cool damp rides. I would never class myself as a Large in any clothing other than cycling gear. Again here, the fawesome is better in a large. I am 175kgs and 5ft 9". Fit is perfect. the medium would have been super aero!!
