Gabba is definitely the classic for a reason! I bought this because I lost some weight and my old gabba-like jersey from a different premium brand had become too big. I'm really glad I switched to the proper Castelli version because it's a neater fit, nicer materials, and performs better too. I got a good deal because Castelli had just released the next generation of this jacket, but this 3rd generation version is really all I need. If there's still stock going cheap then definitely get yourself one!
Iconic winter gear of all time. Would buy it again
Picked one of these jerseys up in the recent sale, highly impressed with the warmth, high collar, reflective touches, low back to cover more of the rear etc. Typical Rosso Corsa fit i.e. nice and close. The original Gabba started a trend and I can see why, superb.
Version shipped was way tighter than the one I had tried on in store. It's the same thing as the perfetto (once you've taken off the arms). Personally I find it too hot above 15 degrees but perfect for any condition but heavy rainfall below.
Very good product! It is not expensive. If you want to spend money for a wintrer jersey you should go for a Maap,Rapha or Assos. €€€€€
Fantastic top and very comfortable with good breathability and also works very well keeping you dry in light showers. This is the second Gabba I have bought and probably will again when this on wares out as well.
It’s a Gabba. It’s been my autumn and spring essential for several years. Showerproof, warm, great colour, great design and holds your gut in. What more could you ask for?
It's a Castelli Gabba so what can I say that hasn`t been said, you know it's going to be a quality jersey, often imitated, never surpassed.

Really good.on my first time using the Gabba it turned into a nasty day with plenty of rain and a strong breeze. The Gabba lived up to all my expectations, really good wind and rain protection
Brilliant product. Perfect for winter riding in NZ where it can get down to 0°C. It's warm enough with only a lightweight base layer underneath. Snug fitting, but I prefer it rather than too loose. Holds shape well too - I had a similar product from Endura which stretched when it got wet or sweaty. No problems with the Gabba so far. I bought the Orange Gabba for visibility. It's bright!
Great quality and fit. Used with a set of Nanoflex armwarmers for a snug and warm ride in cooler and wetter conditions. Orange version stands out in full weather! Recommended.
Fantastic fit and feel. Classic Castelli.
Runs a size small (I am a medium and a large fits)
I dreamed of this jersey, but it was too expensive. But with 30% off it's in my expectations. I tested the shirt between 8 celcius and 20 celcius and it's perfect. I even used this product in a light shower at 8 celcius and stayed dry and comfortable. Superb product. The fit is as indicated. I will buy another one!
Awesome quality, the orange version will be hard to miss on the roads this winter. Thanks Merlin Cycles!
I have an earlier version Gabba jersey and was buying another so that I don't have to wash it every day and have a second colour choice. In the spring and fall season this is my go-to jersey for its warmth and excellent slim fit. It's my only cold weather jersey that fits tight and smooth with nothing flapping about while still providing ample length. I absolutely love the Gabba. 6'1, 37" chest, 32" waist, size medium is a great fit with or without a thin base layer.
Best soft shell I have. Believe the hype
