Lyndawrote a review of Castelli Gabba Women's Long Sleeve Jersey on September 6, 2016
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Filling the gap between jersey and jacket, Gabba is a must have piece that you probably didn't know you needed. It's soft, jersey-like fabric remains very breathable while repelling water and wind. Ventilation zippers on the front help you regulate temperature when you need more air flow during a hard effort or while climbing. The tail can be tucked under or pulled down to protect your chamois from spray when the roads are wet. I've paired it with a sleeveless base layer in the fall and then a heavier long sleeve in winter and have found it to be comfortable. The only downside I've found is that the sleeves are a little short on the XS which isn't an issue I usually come across with clothing. This isn't too much of an issue as gloves make up the difference.
