Castelli Perfetto Cycling Vest - SS19


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
  • Packable construction
  • 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
Mrs Wilson Perfect gilet when you’re not sure on the weather. Excellent fit
Drongo67 Snug slim fit, no flapping in wind but may not suit those not built slim. Pics don't show back, which is predominantly black , so not good for night riding. I like this vest as one of few designs with back pockets. Medium fits me snugly - 66 kgs 170cm. Typical Castelli small sizing. Nice and warm with high collar and quality zip. Now my favourite vest except in evening due black colour on rear.
Mr Nishri Excellent quality and very versatile, it is the best vest have owned.
Mrs Bushill This also was a present but it is so lightweight it makes a lovely extra body warmth without weight.
DavidJ I'm 168 cm & 56 kg, bought a size Small. The fit is okay & not too tight. I've worn the vest with nanoflex armwarmers over a SanRemo speedsuit in 10 degree celsius & was not cold. Another quality product from Castelli.
Mr Knopf Excellent value for money and good value for money
Mr Matthee The Perfetto is my first and my last choice for a vest. It keeps my chest warm when it gets cool and even does a great job when the temperature drops to 4C. The Perfetto is perfetto indeed. Thank you Merlin for the excellent service.
Michael Great fitting garment. I always buy medium in other brands but go large with Castelli- perfect fit. Feels warm for the colder dry rides.
Mr Counsell I '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 Ziesel Great kit for late fall and early spring when a jacket is not needed
Scot Great 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.
David This 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.
pkultra I'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.
Stephen Cuts the wind from blowing through you. Packs very small to fit it rear pocket.
Mr Ward Ordered 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 Marsh Top class product and at a great price. Size up if buying Castelli!
Tetsu My Height is 177cm 78kg. I purchased this item as XL and Blue. It is nice color and good size. and Shipping takes just 2weeks.
