- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: Medium
So I needed something snug and warm as I headed into fall. This vest has been phenomenally versatile as both a base and stand alone top layer.
When the temps started dropping and the arm warmers were making a more common appearance in the outfit, a base tank with the jersey didn't always cut it. This vest provided the perfect layer for wind/warmth, but the flexibility of opening it up on a climb or if the sun came out. Now that the weather has continued to dip and I find myself riding consistently in the 20s/30s, I don't have a good riding jacket. This has been a mainstay in the wardrobe. Arm warmers, thermal base, and then this vest make most 30 degree days tolerable....and if it gets much colder, another layer on top does the trick.
I can't think of a single complaint. If you wear much Castelli, you know they fit a bit small. I run small tops and bibs on just about everything, and was glad I purchased the medium. It has lots of stretch and give to it, so even on top of one or two base items, it fits great.
