Castelli Climber's Jersey - Short Sleeve - Women's

Up, up, and away.

Knocking out a stiff climb always sounds like a good idea from the air-conditioned comfort of home, but we always forget how punishing a climb can be when the weather's hot and the grade is steep. We might forget how much the last climb stunk, but Castelli has a better memory, so it designed the Climber's Women's Jersey to keep the heat turned down when the summer heats up.

Castelli employs 3D fabric architecture throughout its line, and the Climber's features Flusso 3D in the front and Strada Pro 3D in the back. Flusso is so light that you'll hardly notice it, and Strada Pro is hyper-efficient but has a little more structure to support the three pockets on the back of the jersey. Both wick moisture and breathe exceptionally well to keep you cool and dry. Castelli also engineered the Climber's with a built-in bustier lining for comfortable support. AirMesh armbands keep your sleeves in place and provide an aerodynamic fit, and the 3/4-length zipper reduces bulk and keeps the front of the Climber's even sleeker and faster.

Favorite Hot Weather Jersey

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

This is my go to jersey if the temp is above 80. Great for climbing, as it has a modesty panel in the front. You can unzip without worrying about showing too much of the girls. Super light weight. It runs a smidge big in the torso, but the arms band size is perfect. Great match with the Castelli Free Aero shorts. My new favorite kit.

lightweight but runs a little big

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: Medium

This jersey is a summer time riding staple. Super lightweight, breathable fabric and a built in base layer makes for a pretty rad jersey. I dont really like how the jersey doesn't zip all the way down but a big plus is that the jersey has three pockets (sometimes a struggle finding that for ladies jerseys). This jersey DEFINITELY does not follow the normal Castelli size chart where normally I would wear a medium and it would fit tight, this jersey in a medium is almost a little bit baggy. For literally every other Castelli item, I recommend sizing up one if not two sizes but for this jersey, I would almost size down. Other than that, jersey is comfy and I dig the sleeve length which is a little longer than most jerseys I own. Overall, a solid jersey choice for hot rides!

too long in back

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs large

When I first tried on this jersey I thought it fit perfectly but later when I wore it for a ride the first time with stuff in the pockets I was disappointed by the length in back. It hangs down past my butt. However, it should be great for warm weather riding.

pretty but suck

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I didnt read carefully enough for the description that its only 3/4 zip, otherwise. i wont get it. faburic is too fragile to put anything in the pocket and any crashes will just ruin the jersey. also for longer rides, its hard to take off and pee. Oh well, but it is pretty, i am keeping it. its good for 10-15 miles ride...... Sigh......

this jersey is not durable at all..............

take care of this jersey

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This jersey is really nice, confortable and looks very cool, my concern is that I think is not very durable, you have to be very carfull using it, washing it, if not you will have a lot of loose threads.

i took insane good care of, it still have a lot of loose threads...

Gorgeous, Extremely Lightweight

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs large

The design detail on this jersey is awesome. If you're looking for a super-lightweight, airy but technical fabric, this is it. Wicks and breathes like no other but, sun-watchers beware. This is not meant to keep you hiding in the shade so keep the sunscreen handy. Runs slightly large. ***Questions? Need other product recommendations? Hit me up at klindsey@backcountry.com

runs a little large

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

its a great climbing jersey- but be sure to order a size smaller. It's VERY loose

Cool jersey

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Cool looking and kept me fairly cool on a very long, hot climb. The fabric is soft, extremely light-weight and really breathes/dries well. I did not size up as I usually do with Castelli and the XS fits great...perhaps slightly snug in the hips but I'm a bit pear-shaped. The fabric is very stretchy so it works. There is no built in bra but rather an inner front panel of mesh for modesty when you unzip the jersey to cool off. It is not see through and is a really nice feature. There are 3 back pockets which are on the small side...they do stretch so I can still put a fair amount in each one but I wish they were a little bigger. I'm really happy with the raspberry color. It's vibrant without being too bright.

Castelli Women's Climber Jersey

    The fabric is very soft and breathable. Very cute on, and very feminine. Typically I size up in Castelli jersey's, however this one, I had to exchange for a smaller size (which is actually the normal size I buy in other brands).

    I appreciate the information on sizing...very helpful.
