Castelli Prologo V Jersey - Men's

Evening ride companion.

When you're racing home from work to squeeze in as many miles on the roads as you can before sunset, reach for the Castelli Prologo V Jersey then get out the door and onto your bike. As you pedal away the day's stress, the Prologo V's double-layer fabric will draw moisture away from your skin before you know it's there, even if the temperature refuses to drop with the setting sun.

Castelli gives the Prologo a slightly more relaxed fit than the brand is known for, which translates to a slim, tailored silhouette that won't guilt you too much for indulging in Friday donuts at the office a few hours prior to your ride. Other details, like airy mesh panels and a low-profile collar that protect your neck, continue the reliable legacy this Castelli mainstay has had since its first generation.

One of my favs

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

This one is killer. I have an XL that fit me comfortably when I weighed 188. Now I’m down to 180 and the L is a perfect snug race fit.

Good jersey for everyday training/riding

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

Love Castelli stuff. Great quality, materials, and styling. I usually wear a Large in Castelli (race cut fit) so I ordered a Large in this jersey. It is baggy and loose around my waist. With my cell phone in right back pocket, the jersey slides to the right side. I recommend ordering in your "normal" size if you want a proper fit with this jersey. It is MUCH looser than other Castelli "race fit" jerseys. I realize that may seem obvious, but I just ordered the size I'm used to ordering in Castelli, and this jersey is too big. I still wear it but prefer a much tighter, "flap free" fit. I'm by no means at my old racing weight (145 lbs) but even still, on my 173-ish pound frame, this jersey is still too big in a size Large. I would definitely buy another, just in a smaller size, having learned my lesson.

As described....which is perfect.

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

This jersey is exactly as described. The one I find myself always wanting to grab....so I have a couple of them now. The pockets easily fit a day's worth of stuff (wallet, phone, gels, beers, etc.), the fit is not sausagey, nor is it baggy, and the fabric is light and airy. Runs "True to Size" if you know your Castelli size. If not, order one size bigger than normal jerseys.

Perfect jersey!

  • Size Bought: XL

Just purchased this jersey and it's perfect! Being in my late 50's, I really don't need a wind cheating, skin tight jersey. Just something with good fit, comfort and looks nice. This jersey checks all the boxes. May just buy a couple more of these!

Jersey fit

This jersey is awesome. It isn't a typical race fit. But for training and week day rides, it is awesome.

Yes

  • Fit: True to size

This the best "value" Castelli jersey in years. In fact, a great jersey at any price.

Best features:
*Rear pockets with reinforced stitching.
*Vented material under arms and across the upper back.
*Solid waist band stays put.
*Upper zipper/neck guard.
*Even a rear zippered pocket (a surprise at this price point).
*High quality zipper (with pull). Zips up & down easily to dump heat -as when climbing.

And Castelli nailed the styling this year. Much better looking than previous editions of the Prologo.

I pair this jersey with a vest fishnet baselayer (like Castelli's "core mesh 3") for max performance in really hot weather (>80°), or when climbing.

***Fit & Sizing***
"Semi-form fit." Not tight fit like most of Castelli's more expensive Rosso Corsa (race) jerseys. So you don't have to have a pro cyclist's body to wear this jersey.

Sizing: As Castelli vets know, you usually need to size up +1 with Castelli jerseys. Not here! This jersey wil fit in your normal street size. Possibly size *down* one size if you desire race fit.

I had to return mine it seems that they forgot to finish sewing half of the zipper side of the jersey Quality control issues.
But if your unsure of size order 1 size up

I agree. Castelli design is A+, but QC is sometimes B+. Exchange for a good one. CC will pay for shipping.
