Stuffing pockets before a ride sometimes calls for careful thinking. When you're facing a cool morning that will most likely turn into a beautiful day, you have to balance your nutritional requirements with baggage of civilization and leave room for the warmers covering your knees and arms as well as a spot for your vest. Castelli has made this job easier with their Leggero vest.
The vest weighs about 50g. The key is the windproof, water-resistant, breathable Forcefield fabric. If you stuff it in its included stuff sack, it will result in a package about four inches across. You can even stuff it smaller than that; the bag is not only for storage but to protect the vest from scratchy Velcro and rough zippers in the wash.
Despite the paper feel and light weight, the vest is packed with features. The zipper works two ways, so you can zip up from the bottom to access your pockets. There's a draft flap behind the zipper. When the vest is totally zipped up, the zipper fits inside a zipper garage. The collar is lined with mesh for comfort, and the back is constructed of mesh for breathability.
As is the wont of Castelli, the Leggero Vest has a slim, tapered cut, which shows off your cyclist physique standing still and presents minimal fabric for the wind to catch and slow you down. The back has two reflective tabs. The vest is available in a Black, translucent White and Yellow Fluo.The Castelli Leggero Vest comes in sizes from Small to 3XL.
