Great at its job

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 3XL

To start I thought about giving it a 4 for fit, BUT I can’t blame clothing companies for being fat! Definitely odd that a US XL fits me but this 3XL just barely does, but that’s what shopping around will teach you.

Anyway onto the product effectiveness. It blocks out just enough cold for you to stay warm, but let’s out enough sweat to keep you cool. The vents on the side come in handy for those cold, but not so cold days. And finally, the volt color is vibrant and will definitely turn some heads which means I hopefully won’t get hit by a driver.

Overall happy I bought this. Excited to use it for more rides!

Great Jersey for Chilly Weather

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have an older Perfetto in short sleeve and have loved that with arm warmers for cooler weather in the spring and fall. I bought the new one in long sleeve for deeper into fall and early winter. Very happy with the new Gore-Tex Infinium matierial -- virtually windproof and I've found it plenty breathable, especially with the alternate material under the arms. The small flap over the full zipper is a nice improvement on the original Perfetto -- it eliminates wind leaking through the front. As everyone has noted with Castelli jerseys, the fit is a clean snug race fit. Perfect for me -- cuts the wind and there is just enough room for a base- and mid-layer if needed (...but I'm kinda thin). I bought the high-visibility orange and it is almost flourescent -- great for rides in or around the woods during hunting season, or catching the eyes of drivers at dusk. If you haven't had a jersey from Castelli before and are looking to layer under this, defnitely size up one or two. Reallly great jersey!

Fantastic jacket but runs VERY small!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 2XL

This is a really great quality jacket, which you'd expect from Castelli at this price point. I initially ordered the XL (my usual Castelli size) but had to send it straight back as it was strangely really small and I could barely put it on; so went up to 2XL. It's definitely a race-fit design, which I prefer when riding in these breezy fall/winter months but doesn't leave much room if you want to layer up. I've ridden it on a 45-50F ride and it was perfect with a thin base layer, and could really notice the breathability. Went for the bright orange which looks awesome and provides good visibility for those dark winter mornings/evenings. Great service from Backcountry as always.

The new Perfetto is even better!

Received my new Perfetto RoS Convertible Jacket (Limited Edition, in red) in early April 2020. First impressions upon unboxing were: 1) it is better-looking than the photos show (I had been a little skeptical of Limited Edition's red with the black sleeves); 2) the materials and craftsmanship are obviously high quality; 3) it's more comfortable than my Gabba 3 (which I also like a lot); 4) the fit is perfect - snug but with room for 1-2 baselayers. It feels considerably warmer than the Gabba 3, with a light fleecy material on the inside, but still not too thick. It felt it would breathe well. I've taken it on rides in temps from the lower-40s to mid-50s (F), with some wind, and I used either a l-s or s-s baselayer, depending on conditions. It has very effectively blocked the wind. Breathability has been very good - not once have I felt it was stuffy or clammy, which is an improvement on the Gabba 3, which could occasionally feel clammy. I simply didn't even think about it. I did one longish ride in moderate rain, and the material kept me dry, just like my Gabba does, and I did not get very clammy. The combination of materials on front and back (lighter) seems excellent for keeping out the weather while maintaining breathability. And the torso zip vents help regulate temps. This already feels like one of the best pieces of cycling kit I've ever worn - very versatile, especially with the removable sleeves. Really glad I chose the Convertible, and ignored one review that suggested just getting the Gabba s-s; this simply offers more versatility for a great price - the Limited Edition was 50% off. Good looking and smart design, too. Also, the taped seams at the shoulders are reflective, which was not clear from the product description. I'm 6'0'', 183 lbs., and ordered an XL. I normally wear a large in most clothing, but need to order a size up with Castelli. (I never knew Italians were smaller before I met Castelli.)

I ordered the exact same item in red and I feel exactly the same about it. I was really impressed with the breathability of the Perfetto. Haven't tested it in any rain yet but given that I live in New England, I will be soon.

Really helpful. same height and weight and need to return my xxl for an xl. Thanks man!

Trust in the jersey

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Large

I love the fit, I love the function, and I'm really happy with this jersey! I find that in the recommended temperature range of 39-57 you should NOT need a base layer. If you choose to add one then you're just asking to overheat (though you could always remove the base layer later in the ride). This jersey (from what I gather) is designed to breathe yet also keep you warm. Even though high 30s may feel cool at first, trust in the jersey. You will warm up and the jersey will do its job. It's still winter here so I have not worn this jersey in the high 40s or 50s. I'd suspect it would be rather warm in the 50s, maybe even too warm, depending on how hard you're riding. I tend to run a little warm so for me this jersey would be great at temps up to about 50F. Anything warmer than 50 and you might want something a little lighter unless you're just doing base miles.

As far as the fit goes, this jersey fits very well. I have a sprinters build and the large size fits like a glove. It's certainly closer to a race fit than a flapping-in-the-wind club fit. I like that.

Overall this is a great jersey for chilly rides.

Don't know what to think.

Where do I start?
This is definitely a racers jersey or jacket or jersey? It fits really small. The arms are really skinny. The good thing is, it does have some stretch to it.
I've worn this coat from 40 to 50 degrees with a thin Nike base-layer. I don't usually run hot. I'm a 20-22 group rider, not a racer.

What's weird about this coat is that when you start out, you can feel the wind on the arms and chest, more so than say.. the original Gabba or the Transparente jersey. But when you start to build up heat with an effort, you get clammy and hot and it won't vent. Even with the chest vents. They are off to the side too much to take in air. They are probably letting some out, I guess, just not enough.
I did manage to get caught in the rain with it on. It rained for about 20 minutes and then showers off and on. I stayed dry. Clammy, but dry. The problem was, it was 46 degrees with wind, and I was still hot, so I had the front un-zipped halfway and I got a little wet in the front.
Another gripe is the rear pockets are "set-in", so you have to reach a little further behind you. And yes, there are only two, which isn't awful, but it makes your stuff harder to find because your other stuff is in the way. I usually put my gel and bar in one, my phone in one, and then keys and miscellaneous in the third one. I was fighting keys, and spare lenses, trying to find my gel with gloves on. Also, they are short in height. My Pixel 3 reaches the top.
Is this coat all bad?
The zippers are really easy to operate, even the chest vent ones. It did keep me dry. While snug, it does stretch and feels good on the bike fit-wise.
If they moved the side vents forward, and added sleeve vent zippers, this coat might not get stay so clammy. And also go back to the 3 pocket style.
I guess I'll just keep this for the mild, showery days. Too clammy for anything else.
