Take in the snowy scenery.

There are few things the truly embody the joy of riding a bicycle more than rolling through beautiful farmland as giant snowflakes float through the bright, crisp air around you. Take in the views in the warm comfort of your Castelli Men's Raddoppia Jacket, listen to the light crunch of fresh snow under your tires, and enjoy the blissfully muffled quiet and peace that marks the official changing of ride seasons.

The key to this jacket's ability to weather the cold is Castelli's use of Gore Windstopper X-Fast thermal fabric, which offers warm protection against the elements of winter, and a lighter Thermoflex fabric on the sides for a balance of warmth and breathability. Large reflective paneling and logo placement across the jacket adds aesthetic interest and impressive visibility to other road users in dreary, low-light conditions.

Castelli recommends this jacket for ideal warmth in temperatures ranging from 32-50 degrees Fahrenheit, but we'd happily pair it with a jersey and base layer in colder temperatures without any concerns.

  • A cycling jacket to fend off the winter elements
  • Gore Windstopper membrane keeps you rolling in foul weather
  • Thermal inserts boost breathability without compromising warmth
  • Streamlined fit minimizes the flap of excess fabric
  • Three rear open pockets and a zippered pocket stow essentials

Tight Fit!!

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

Castelli makes very nicely constructed products with great quality materials. However, you have to be a very slim cyclist us to properly fit in the clothing. I usually wear a Large and even an XL fits me like a sausage casing! Unfortunately, I won’t be buying Castelli products again.

Quality high vis jacket

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

I am 5'10" 160 and fit well in a size large in the majority of Castelli's products. The jacket fit me pretty well, a bit tighter than anticipated. I have a slightly larger chest than most for my size and weight and still had room to put one or two base layers underneath for a cold day in the saddle. The one flaw was the long sleeve length. As you can see in my pictures, it bunched up and created some extra slack that I did not need. But, this would allow for room long sleeve layers.

The jacket was very comfortable and felt breathable. It would be great for cold and dry days with low winds as opposed to wet and windy days. I would pack an outer weather proof shell to throw over this in rainy and windy conditions just in case. Aesthetically, it is a good looking product with lots of silver reflective spots covering the chest, back, and arms making it very high vis for a black jacket. I would feel an extra boost of confidence on busy roads ridden with vehicles

Overall, it's a beautiful looking jacket for a cold and dry climate. Castelli did a nice job on this product!

What size chest are you? I’m a 42” and was wondering if an XL would fit. Additional info, 6’2” 165 lbs. 32” waist. I’m really interested in the Castelli products!

Had to have it

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

Ok, this men's version of this jacket is amazing, not sure if there's a comparable women's version that's this warm and in yellow? I am a huge fan of Castelli and this jacket definitely doesn't disappoint. I agree with the other posts that this particular jacket runs very small. I am 5'3", 116 pounds and I am usually a woman's small or medium. In this men's jacket, I needed the medium. I would think a man who usually wears a medium would need the large or even the XL for more room to layer?
As far as wind coming through the zipper, I haven't felt it, but that could be because I have on at least 2-3 layers underneath in the 30 degree range. Love the 3 deep back pockets, plus the reflective zippered rear pocket for $ and a key.
Size up 1-2 sizes and enjoy your breezy cold winter ride, plus washes really well in cold water and hang to dry!!!

Design flaw

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

Unsure as to why the apparel designers failed to include a draft stop behind the zipper. Continuous blast of cold air to the upper chest area is felt even when riding in the drops. Sadly the mild fall in the upper Midwest prevented me from discovering this flaw before the 30 day return window expired. First Castelli product I can't recommend. 5' 9" 160 lbs. 40" chest purchased XL to allow layering of heavier weight baselayers, fit is still aero but more relaxed in the chest area. Own The Alpha Jacket in L and it is too snug across the chest when wearing a Assos #3 or #4 winter baselayer.

Great except for a tragic flaw

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

I had high expectations. It fit the bill of fluorescent yellow and warm. Alas, there is no wind flap behind the zipper; so, even on a 50 degree test ride, I could feel cold spreading from the zipper area over the front of my chest. Everywhere else was toasty. Add a zipper flap or make a windproof zipper and it would be a great product.
Of note, the XL fit snug like a jersey and the XXL like a slim fit jacket with room for a slim fleece vest. The arms were still snug.

Adam thank you for the review but you didn't mention a critical part of the sizing equation.....Telling others the size that worked for you is useless if you don't tell others your height/weight. So many others leave that part out also.....I don't get it.

Sorry, Evan. Since this was my first review, I didn't realize that the info I entered for CC (my height and weight) don't automatically attach onto my review. I weigh 175 lbs and am 6'3" with a 34.5" waist. The XL fit like a jersey (snug) and the XXL slightly looser and more comfortable but still snug enough not to flap, but I could get a thin vest under if necessary. I preferred the XXL.

Thanks for your review. The cold air thru the zipper is a significant flaw, one that another commenter discovered. Similar to you I'm 6'3", 173 lbs, and all the Castelli gear I have is XXL. I don't own anything else in XXL. Anyone over 200lbs is totally out of luck with Castelli.

Italians cannot conceive how fat I am.

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

OK...I'm fat. Not obese but fat. A series of spinal injuries from an IED in Iraq have been slow to recover and I still face at least 3 more operations. Whahhh!!!! Lots of reasons but they all sound just what they are; excuses.

So I quit my job in South Georgia and am moving to Colorado Springs where I was the most fit I ever was.

Well it's freaking cold in the winter there but one of the things I always enjoyed was getting out in the winter alone. Now I'm not a masochist so I dropped some cash on the CASTELLI RADDOPPIA JACKET. It is a thing of beauty and fine craftsmanship. It's perfect except that I can't stuff my 5'9" 220 lb Lardassian body into the XXL without the seams screaming in protest. I'm going to see if the 3XL can make me feel like I'm not wrapped in Saran Wrap and Duck Tape.

So 4 Stars as the sizing is obviously meant for fit cyclists" ectomorph physiques and so you are forewarned.

If anyone has a recommendation with the same qualities in a full or "American" size sing out.

Great product. Unfortunately the designers could never imagine my body in their beautifully designed and crafted jacket.


El Gordo

Let that be motivation to push away from the table my man........On another note, Twin Six, Gore, Pearl Izumi have more of a true to size type fit.........
