The Castelli Climber's Jersey is a tangible upgrade from heavier jerseys on hot days and long climbs. The first thing I noticed was just how comfortable the jersey is! Though slim fitting, it lays well and at no point felt constricting. The sleeves are a longer-than-average short sleeve, coming to just above my elbow, which I really liked for coverage from the sun.
The 3/4 zip in the front allows me the jersey to vent well. The liner situation (not pictured) is a layer beneath the jersey's zip. This is apparently for "modesty." I found it nice to vent well, but wasn't too keen on another layer on the hottest days.
I'd recommend this jersey to anyone riding in hot weather or doing serious efforts on not-so-hot days. At 5'6" and 145lbs, the large fit me well--the jersey is true to size for Castelli.
