Castelli Perfetto Long Sleeve Cycling Jersey - AW17
It's hard improving on perfection. Last year's version of this jacket was called the Gabba long sleeve jacket, but Castelli have now gone back to reserving the Gabba name for the original short sleeve jersey. After hearing so many people call the long-sleeve version of the Gabba "perfect" they renamed this version the Perfetto jersey and set about improving on perfection. Castelli have increased the effectiveness of the water-repellent finish so it will keep you drier while remaining just as breathable; they've refined the fit and laser cut the drain holes in the pockets as well as completely redesigning the splash flap on the rear of the jersey to help it lie flatter and fit better while reflective logos on the back keep you visible – Perfetto!
- Fully aero, breathable and protective
- Gore® Windstopper® X-Lite Plus fabric for lightweight total wind protection & water-repellent finish
- Nano flex fabric insert under arms
- Storm-flap construction with reflective logo at back protects from wheel spray
- Silicone gripper at waist prevents ride-up
- Full-length ykk® vislon® zipper with wind flap
- 3 rear pockets with laser-cut drain holes
- Weight: 386g (large)
- Temperature range: 6°-15°c / 43°-59°f
AlI`ve always been wary of spending a lot of money on jerseys but decided to treat myself while this was in the sale and I have to say it is fantastic. I`m 5`8" with a 40 inch chest and the large is a very snug fit, but perfectly comfortable on the ride. The jerssey was completely windproof but never led to overheating. I would definitely buy another one.
matt fantasticAmazing ! how have I survived this long without one..!?
Mr WrightGreat service from Merlin as I received this jacket very quickly. With a 41 chest I ordered a L, which is a very snug fit. The jacket is suitable for all but the coldest days I would say. With just a ss base layer it is fine for most of the uk dreary weather!
Mr saldise kortaPrenda muy polivalente y de calidad que se ajusta bien al cuerpo, protege del viento y agua y transpira bien. Precio muy bueno en Merlin y envío correcto.
ScottNice fit, well made. I got Giro Pink and love it!
baiuBeautiful, high quality jersey. I'm 180 cm, 75 kg and 101 cm chest, L fits perfect, not too snug, there's room for a long sleeve thermo underwear.
Mrs LovseThe Castelli Perfetto Long Sleeve Jersey is a must have for Autumn season when temperatures fall down, but a sunny day invites you out for a ride. It is comfortable and the size was a normal fit.
CrispyDeeExcellent kit. Brilliant wind-stopper - used it the other day with a thin base layer on a breezy 5C morning and none of that chill got past the jacket into my core, and am confident same set up would handle a few degrees colder. Starts to get a bit warm above 12C, but there's good ventilation options. Not waterproof but if you get a bit damp the wind-stopper effect still keeps you warm. I'm 5ft 7inch skinny 36inch chest, and the size small is perfect for me, snug and aero. Very happy with this jacket.
StevenExcellent quality item and a great fit for me. I bought a size Large in this I am 180cm and 85kgs and prefer a race fit. Will buy another colour.
WildinlailandAll set now for all but the deepest cold weather. As with all Castelli kit go a size up. L on my 5'9'' 75kg frame is a great fit. Plus it was a good price .
Neil ColcloughGreat service, superb piece of kit. I`m usually a medium in tops and jackets but was advised to order XL....which was good advice.
Mr ellisI got the Giro pink version, very nice top. XL fits nice, I am 6' and 13 stone.
SebastianXL comfortable slim fit with 5'10", 39 inches chest and 36 inches waist. Can become warm in the climb in September but comes with 2 zipper vents on the front and a front full-length zipper hidden behind a wind flap which can be opened to get some cooling.
Patrick JohnstoneAs usual with Castelli clothing I find it an outstanding fit and the Perfetto is a great piece of kit especially with changeable weather that errs on the damp and cool side. Good enough to race in.
JulianWhat a bargain, I have another of these which I used through the winter last year and have been looking out for one in the sales... it is a superb top, as always with Castelli size up, I am a medium in everything else but a large in Castelli... its a beautifully engineered top and real does deserve all the good reviews it gets.
KOMRIDERThis is a good quality winter jersey. I have find it to be perfect for tempo (or little hard effort) ride in the 10-18c. I do need to warm up first before go out though as it will be too cold. I wear thermal underneath. I like 2 zips on the sides to let the heat out. The fit is good for me. I am 176cm weight 67kg and small fit me well.
Mr McCombsThe jersey seems to be well made and fits me well. I like the cut of the jersey (flexible, but form fitting). I have only used it twice so far so I can't report on durability. I would give it 5 stars except I find it crazy that even within the Castelli line, sizes are inconsistent. Even if you figure out your size for one Castelli jersey, a different Castelli Jersey could require a different size. It makes buying online stressful.
TonyRecently purchased and wore this jersey for the first time recently. I was very sceptical of this, and after numerous reviews decided to buy. Firstly, make sure you check the size guides and reviews from customers. I'm 5'10 and 80 kgs and normally buy M in sports clothing, the Castelli XL was spot on. It's a firm race fit and perfect. Secondly, the jersey itself: it's a very thin fabric, but boy does it work! It's certainly windproof, light weight and very comfortable. 3 good size pockets. I used this in Autumn cooler Adelaide rides (8-15c) and it kept me warm with a thin under layer. Very impressed so far. This is my first higher end jersey, and can see the value. Got the pink jersey in honour of the Giro riders, its bright and on sale. Highly recommended!!
James BuwaldaExcellent fit, fantastic at keeping out cool air, wind and light rain
Mr HughesChest size just about 38inches, I'm 6'1" and weigh about 74kg. Size large was perfect. I own a few long sleeve Perfettos and they are super. Winter cycling will never be the same with one. Protection from the cold, damp and wind. I have worn one of these with a base layer in temperatures of under zero degrees and have been toasty!!
Mr GallagherGreat long sleeve jersey, my second one as I loved the first one that much! Pure class
Stu NottinghamSuperb garment, not sure why it has taken me so long to purchase one. I am 6ft, 78kg. I fall in between Castelli XL and XXL. In the end I ordered both and then decided on the best fit for me. The XL fitted but the XXL was slightly more relaxed. The Windstopper and goretex properties are superb. Perfetto Jacket is very highly recommended - even more so when you can buy one in the Merlin sale
Mr SäynäväjärviPerfect jersey for chillier days and even blocks small rain. Fit is pretty tight for long sleeve jersey but I see this is positive feature. I choose size L and it is perfect for me (183cm and 79kg)
DevonknightPerfect for mizzly Devon days. Light rain beads off. Heavy rain soaks through but the softshell keeps the wind out so you stay warm. Size up for a perfect Castelli fit.
christopherTypical Castelli quality. Great fit but please be aware of Euro sizing.
