Sizing Information for Castelli Clothing:
Mr Finch Surprisingly breathable for a waterproof (still sweated but not nearly the same as other waterproofs). 100% waterproof tested in the rain for 30 mins. Very tight on upper arms/armpit, well made 5 stars
Mr L Bought for daughter and she is very pleased with it. I already had one and there was no equivalent jacket in the women’s range.
Fraser Fraser Superb piece of kit. Forget everything you know about rain jackets and buy this. Race fit, no flapping, stretches like a jersey, looks amazing. I'm 80kg 6"3' and a large provides a race fit for me, perfect.
Mr Girvan Excellent product and good price from Merlin. I ordered M and it's a good fit over a base layer but also a LS winter jersey (5'9'' and 38'' chest) Not had a chance to test in the wet as yet but feeling confident it'll keep me dry.
Pete Very nice jacket. I sized up to a large (70kg, 185cm tall). The fit is good, although given the stretch in the fabric I think I could possibly have gone for medium for a really close race fit on the bike. Large is just slightly flappy on the shoulders, but fine for me. First ride, kept me warm and reasonably dry (not sure if I was damp from rain or sweat, but staying warm is key!). Just small enough to roll up and fit in back pocket.
Mr Ozcam It is clear why sky team uses this. It fits perfect.
John C. Used once, only one rain day. Fit was good, jacket worked. Stayed dry and comfortable.
Mr Butcher Excellent product. Great quality. Comfortable. Light. Keeps you dry. Castelli to make them small so I go a size larger than for other brands.
Mr Smid Top material, top quality, small size - order one bigger than usual
Kevin Really happy with this jacket. It’s lightweight enough to pack away but keeps the water out. Be sure to buy a bigger size (as always with Castelli).
Mr Holland Excellent value, looks the part. I'm roughly a Medium in build but had to buy XL in this range as very small fitting. Other than that the prodoct is cool.
Stuart Absolutely stunning piece of kit, fits like a glove and is warm, well pleased I found it and what a price 🙃 brilliant service too, wow, so quick, thank you
Mrs PATMAN Excellent jacket, keeps you dry and warm. I'm 5.10 and the medium size fits great for me.
Mr Witts Very light weight, fantastic material. Only worn once in the rain,, kept me dry. I would recommend
Gordon Love this jacket. First things first, it’s a very snug fit - I’ve sized up as per other reviews and gone for a Large (I’m 1.83m and a slim build 75kg). Initially felt a little tight under the arms, but don’t notice this on the bike. Material has a good amount of stretch and fit feels really good. Kept me dry so far, though not worn in anything other than light rain. Yes, you can get a little sweaty if you’re really loading up the effort, but for the price I think this jacket is great value and looks very cool.
Mr Bannister Excellent quality garment! Really pleased with the fit. I ordered a large, I’m 6ft 2 and 82kg. Can’t wait to try it out on the road on my next rainy commute
Mr Mountjoy Very good comfortable but tight. I am pleased I read the reviews and bought a size larger than I usually wear as this is still a tight fit. I am a small medium and I bought a large size.
Mr Cleaver Fantastic quality product really impressed with the standard. Very snug fitting had to get a size bigger than the size chart.
Michael I'm usually a M in Castelli, but this was really tight under the arms. Exchanged for a L and still a little tight, great garment though. What I was really impressed with though was the service from Merlin. So easy to return and the speed was amazing - thank you.
Mr Stenning Really nice peice of clothing but definitely not waterproof, leaks through the cheap zip and shoulder seams. It does say 'pro' and 'light' in the name so you get something that works really well if your riding hard but isn't ideally suited to more relaxed rides.
Mr Reid I always buy the next size up in Castelli clothing and this jacket was a perfect fit. Looks great and is nice and snug so no flapping around in the wind. Couldn't believe the value and had to have it at the price Merlin were selling it at. I've used it twice now in the rain and works perfectly to keep you dry and you don't sweat like other rain jackets make you. Very happy with this jacket.
Doug Prentice Fantastic jacket! Really good quality. Fit is excellent - tight so no material flapping around! I’m 175cm , 70kg and the medium is a perfect fit . Because it’s stretchy it even goes over my winsdstopper winter jacket. Great price and service from Merlin ordered Sunday arrived Tuesday with free delivery.
Jamie Good snug fit. I'm 6'6 and 85kg and the large fits well. Good length and very fitted.
NICk I am really pleased with this jacket, although I have not used it in rain yet to test if it is waterproof. I purchased this as a 'small packable' jacket for showers in the Spring or Autumn. It is a fantastic fit with slightly stretchy non flappy long sleeves. It only packs down to 'medium small' so your jersey back pocket needs to be reasonably sized to carry it. Fit is true to size. I wear small Castelli and it was fine for over the top of a small Jersey and underlayer. Very 'Pro' looking....so cool. Ten out of ten.
glenn Nice jacket. XL is a grreat fit for me at 5'11 and 168 pounds. Jacket is water repellant, not waterproof. Go with Idro Pro 2 for complete waterproof.
Mr O'Donnell Haven’t worn it inclement weather yet. However it is designed for the pro’s. I’m 5”7 tall 39 chest and ordered the large as others recommended and glad I did it’s neat but comfortable though the sleeves slightly long. Can’t fault the quality or the service from Merlin.
Mr Rogers This jacket is absolutely fantastic. A good fit and very comfortable. A quality product.
Mr Lafferty Great fitting jacket, usually a large so took XL and great, wind and rain protection is briliant and you dont overheat !
Clapham boy Water beads amazingly well off this jacket. It’s pretty thin as you’d expect but tail provides nice protection. I’m normally a L or XL but found XXL to be best fit.
Clapham Boy Great jacket. I’m usually an XL but it was too small. The XXL fits really well.
Norgaard Luxury rain jacket, light and completely water- and windproof. I usually order Castelli size XL but this one I had to change to XXL because I use it on top of my cycling jacket and the very tight fit (which is preferable for cycling).
