Castelli GPM Full-Zip Jersey - Long-Sleeve - Men's

This jersey has a great fit when you finally settle on the right size. The sizing chart suggested I was within the margins of a medium. It arrived and was way too small. The large fits me perfectly. So take the recommendation of going up a size seriously. I'm a medium in American sizes and a large in Euro sizes. That has been consistent across a number of brands, including Castelli, whether it's a bib short, jersey or jacket. The fit of this jersey is trim but comfortable. The neck and cuffs fit snug and keep out drafts. It has a nice soft feel due to the fleece inside. Very comfortable to cycle in when it gets down below 60, say. Generally, Castelli's weakest element of their garments are their zippers. This one works well so far, but it doesn't appear to have gotten any special attention from the Design Dept. I got the cool superman blue with red trim. A relatively understated design for Castelli, which I like. One of the few jersey's of theirs I feel comfortable wearing in public.

In my experience the pull tab broke the first ride on this jersey so i took a rubber gasket and looped it through for something to pull. Also the bottom, when taking it off is a bit weak as it separates before the zipper is ejected from the slot...
