The Castelli Perfetto race vest, formerly known as the Fawesome is the perfect cycling gilet for fast-paced training rides or early season races when temperatures are low and the weather is particularly unpleasant. With a windproof Gore Windstopper X-lite Plus front and shoulders combined with Castelli’s Nano Flex Light fabric on the back for water repellency and breathability the Perfetto features an aero fit so that there’s no annoying loose fabric flapping in the wind. A high-cut neck protects you from the cold wind and two back pockets allow you to carry the essentials required for long winter training rides.
Windstopper® X-Lite Plus on front and shoulders provides lightweight wind protection
Nano Flex Light fabric on back protects from wheel spray
Full-length YKK® Vislon zipper with wind flap
2 x rear pockets
Rear reflective trim on pockets and flap for high visibility
Suitable for a temperature range of 10°-18°c
Mr CounsellI 'm 76kg and 5'11, went for the XL size and its just right - enough room over a jersey, great for cold mornings. Spot on!
Mr ZieselGreat kit for late fall and early spring when a jacket is not needed
ScotGreat vest. It kept me warm on my last ride until the temperature rose. I normally wear a medium, but went with a large. This was a good move as this vest runs small.
DavidThis vest feels good in the hands and is comfortably stretchy. The size is weird. Taking note of the previous comments I ordered XXL The vest in this size is SMALLER than other cycling garments I have that are Large size. At XXL it is the largest label size I have ever bought and it is a snug fit on me - usually Large fits me with room to move. Beware sizing. Sizing aside the garment feels like a quality item.
pkultraI'm 1.7m 59kg (5'7" 130lbs). Usually wear small in Castelli. Ordered a medium and it's a perfect fit with a few layers underneath.
StephenCuts the wind from blowing through you. Packs very small to fit it rear pocket.
Mr WardOrdered a size L (large). Perfect fit. I am 182cm and 86kg. A nice tight fit, the way I like it.
This is not a light vest and is quite warm. In fact, it is the warmest vest I own. It also has 2 rear pockets. Therefore, it is good a option for those days you think you will be wearing a vest for most of the ride. Although it is very pocketable, it can be a little bulky in the pocket. I haven't tried it in the rain yet.
Long tail too for those rainy days.
Mr MarshTop class product and at a great price. Size up if buying Castelli!
