Castelli Superleggera Cycling Vest - AW19
The Superleggera Vest offers cyclists a superlight gossamer thin barrier over the chest against wind and cold. Perfect for chilly mountain descents or for when the evening cools down.
Not just another gilet Castelli put a lot of thought and engineering into the high-performance Superleggera Vest. The main body fabric is Japanese-made Pertex Quantum, but without the standard coating so that you get a very small amount of air permeability that lets sweat escape, while the durable water-resistant (DWR) coating will keep light rain off. The sides are in a highly breathable mesh to help the fit and to make this more summer weight.
  • Pertex® Quantum base fabric with low air permeability to keep you dry
  • Mesh breathable panels on sides
  • Stretch Torrent waterproof fabric insert on back
  • Extremely packable
  • YKK® Vislon® zipper
  • Front and rear reflectivity
  • Weight 79g (L)
James Bowman Super lightweight and packable with a nice, close fit (Castelli size small fits me well - I am 5' 8" and of slim build). Usual Castelli quality. I have both this gilet and the jacket version and I find this more breathable when working hard (partly because of the addition of the mesh panels on the back which are not present on the jacket) and pairs nicely with arm warmers when the temperature drops.
Hanksta I’m 5”9’ and 38 inch chest . Size large was spot on. Very lightweight and easy to store away . Only wish there was a pocket . Well made as you’d expect from Castelli .
JFG Great product by Castelli as usual. Zero wind gets through it. As the norm with Castelli , go one size up or you’ll look like the Michelin man.
G Aberdeen Disappointed on opening package to see what I thought was a flimsy thin garment, however through use find my purchase to be very effective light and wearable good purchase...size up folks.
spacpac Good fit, no flapping, very good wind resistance. Packable and with a good zipper. Ordered L for 182cm height, 100 chest
Hiroyuki It is the best gilet for downhill climb. It folds so compact that it doesn't take up too much space in your jersey pocket. It was good to buy it cheaply.
Mr Normoyle Great quality as usual..miss no pockets in the back though..size up one👍
Robert Super lightweight vest ideal for those early morning starts and extremely thin so doesn’t take up much room in your pocket. Great product and great price again from Merlin
Mr Bott A new item, working well so far, packs away perfectly.
BCR Well fitted and offers a nice amount of protection without overheating.
Sebastian Excellent vest, lightweight, easy to pack in back pocket, wind resistance, orange color looks great! I'm 180cm and 67kg - size Medium fits perfectly.
Mr Ording Overall good quality. + for zipper that enables one hand handling.
Dave A Good quality, very lightweight and packable, very snug and looks good. I am 40in chest 34in waist and Large fits snug.
Philip Awesome vest, keeps the wind chill off and light rain and packs really small into a jersey pocket. The fit is great, no flapping shoulders like I've had on cheaper brands. Been wearing over a Castelli puro long sleeved jersey. Perfect fit, went large, I'm 63kg, 180cm tall with 92cm chest.
Nick Excellent super light weight and compact vest. The white version I bought is translucent, I was expecting it to be solid white. Sizing is per Italian/Castelli sizing so I bought XXL which equates 43 inch or 110cm chest. Its firm, but it has an elastic middle section on the back which will give after a few wears. Good 3M reflective on the chest, around the arms and two on the lower back sides. Definitely a must have summer vest. I also have the Perfetto Vest for winter which is absolute quality.
