Aero Rain Jersey

Great cool/damp weather jersey. Nice to have a warm jersey that fits so it doesn't flap in the breeze. Material and fit are outstanding. Not sure but it doesn't feel like the windstopper fabric extends down the sleeves. Chest and torsoe stay comfortable in 45-55* conditions with a light base layer, but the arms feel the chill. The drop tail is a great feature when roads are wet. Would be nice in some other colors. White looks great but not after a wet ride on dirty roads. Black is low visabilty and boring. Overall good stuff. Pricey but worth it if you're out in lousey weather.

Good review. I've used the jersey a couple of times and like that it keeps out wind and rain.
I have the same concern regarding whether windstop material is used in arms. On my last ride arms did feel a chill. My ride tonight should be in the high 40s to low 50s. Think I'll know for sure after ride.

Castelli customer service says the windstopper fabric is used throughout jacket. Only place it's not used is underarms where they use nano for more ventilation.
