Runs very tight

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 3XL

Great vest but runs extremely tight. I bought 3XL and even that was way too tight. I usually wear XL or sometimes XXL depending on the brand.

Great vest

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

Size XL in all my Castelli jerseys so I tried this in XL also. Fit is snug and perfect over the top of a Castelli jersey. Wore this when temp started around 45 degrees up to 60 degrees. Entire ride was perfect, didn't end up unzipping or taking it off during the ride. I will plan on using this instead of my Alpha ROS 2 jacket if the temp gets over 50 during the ride.

Perfect for Southern California weather

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Size Bought: M

This was a perfect choice for riding in San Diego for a late morning to mid day even during the over cast/windy or chilly days. I can arrange warmth by the different base layer. I also tried Castelli Alpha RoS 2 Light Jacket, but unless I ride at dawn all the time, the jacket will be a little too much (still very well designed jacket and sizing is the same).

Many reviews mention that it runs small; however, in my case, size Medium was perfect.
I usually wear size medium on Castelli products. Just to make sure, I even ordered size Small to try and I can even wear small as well if I wanted it be snug.
For a reference, I am on a small side: Suit Size 36S or 38S, (depending on a fit), pants size 30, dress shirt 15.5/31-32, shirt/t-shirt size small or medium (mostly small) and almost all European size in 46.

Hobbit sizing

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

Beautifully made product. However, the sizing is way way off. I am 5’11” under 150lbs and ended up with an xl which still fits snuggly. So, I suggest going 2 sizes above your usual size.
Return to CC of the L was easy. No issues and free returns.

perfect for the in-between temperatures

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: L

i have an alpha ros light jacket that i really like so i took a shot on this as well.

i have worn this a few times in temperatures between ~5°C (~40°F) and ~10°C (~50°F) and couldn't be more pleased. the fit is perfect; no complaints.

Two months into fall -- I like it!

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

Bought XL (see previous review) and returned for an XXL. Snug fit, but when riding in the cooling fall days, I don't notice the vest. I use it over the jersey, and the vest keeps me snug and warm on my road bike rides into the hills. Still, be aware that it sizes small.

Great vest - Castelli Perfetto RoS Vest

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

My best vest - the material is the key with this vest. I have several other top quality vests, but this is the winner hands down. It blocks the wind and light precipitation. When unzipped it doesn't flap in the wind! The material is curved to the body to prevent the flapping.

Excellent vest - a little short

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

This vest is excellent. It's warm and windproof but breathes well so you don't overheat. It's water-resistant and did a great job keeping my core warm and dry on a recent ride with a constant drizzle and lots of roadspray. It's incredibly lightweight and rolls up small so you can stow it easily.

It is snug and close-fitting, so I'd say it runs slightly small. My experience is limited of course, but I'd order whatever size you would order if you were buying a form-fitting jersey.

The one sizing thing that isn't quite perfect is the height. It's shorter than most of my jerseys, so my jersey sticks out, especially if I've got stuff in my jersey pockets. That's surprising especially when wearing a Castelli jersey (you'd think they'd be sized the same way), but on the other hand, I've only worn the vest with club-fit jerseys so maybe it's not an issue with form-fitting. I also am proportionally taller in my torso than some folks my height, so it could just be me. In any event, this is a pretty minor issue; it's aesthetic not functional.

All the way around I love Castelli's Rossa Corsa products and this vest doesn't disappoint.

Runs real small!

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

I like the Goretex and the light weight. Bought the XL, based on my chest and waist measurement, and had to return for the 2XL, which is still snug. (I have an American football player's build -- 218 pounds and 6 feet tall). Great quality but runs real small. The return and exchange worked great and was prompt.

Great base layer

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Large

Works good over base, under long sleeve outer layer. Temperatures high 40s to upper 50d

Great vest...does run small

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

6'2, 195 pds, broad shoulders...bought a xl and way too small, returned for a xxl and fits like a glove.... great vest, comfortable, windproof, well designed and engineered.. a best buy. excellent customer service on the return. goretex infinum is a winner

Great Vest

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

This vest is top-notch! I was in between buying this and another perfetto, and I’m glad I got this. Very versatile piece and I can take it in slightly warmer temperatures than I do my perfetto light short sleeve.

How to Measure:
For best results, take measurements over your underwear.
Measure under your arms, around the fullest part of your chest.
Measure around your natural waistline, keeping the tape a bit loose.
Measure around the fullest part of your body at the top of your legs.
Using pants that fit well, measure the crotch seam to the bottom of the leg.
