Perfetto Ros Convertible Jacket

Take your winter kit to the next level when the temps start to dip with Castelli's new Limited-Edition Perfetto RoS Convertible Jacket. It takes all of the benefits that you'll find from the new Perfetto Convertible, and decks them out with an new limited edition colorway that stands out on the blacktop. At first glance, changes are abound left and right, and while the aesthetic changes to play a big part in the performance of the piece, we'd argue that the lesser noticed changes are where the biggest differences come to play. That's to say that, at first glance, you might not spot that Castelli drifts away from its GORE Windstopper construction for this iteration, moving to textiles that push further forward with Rain or Shine protection, utilizing GORE's newest Infinium fabrics.

While Windstopper served a solid purpose — stopping wind, the new Infinium 205 Warm offers a little more, with a brushed interior to trap in heat, and water protection on the outside, in addition to wind coverage. This is employed at all front-facing surfaces, where we need the most protection as we pedal into foul weather. To balance the insulation and elemental coverage at the front, Castelli utilizes GORE's Infinium 203 Stretch at the rear-facing surfaces. As the name may have you guessing, Infinium 203 Stretch is incredibly flexible, and offers lighter coverage than its partner in the front. It provides improved breathability for managing your perspiration as you pedal, and while the generous stretch allows the piece to contour to your body as you pedal.

Big changes were carried through beyond fabric alone, though, with the biggest being the new sleeve construction. Rather than offering sleeves that zip off from the torso, the new Perfetto RoS Convertible Jacket uses a new design that zips off just above the elbow. Now we know what you're thinking — raw zipper on the bicep while riding? No thank you. — But as usual, Castelli has thought through all of the details, opting for a unique cuff design at the sleeve, with a 3/4-zip, and multiple fabric layers to host the zipper sandwiched in the middle. This means that when you wear the jacket in long-sleeve form, no zipper is exposed and visible, and when you remove the sleeves, the zippers edge sits neatly inside, where it doesn't come into contact with your skin, or show its less pleasing aesthetic. Instead, you're left with a short-sleeve jacket that resembles the Gabba, which we find brilliant.

  • Castelli improves upon the Perfetto for its latest convertible piece
  • Limited edition colorway stands out on the wintry tarmac
  • New zipper placement offers cleaner jacket and short-sleeve appearance
  • GORE Infinium fabrics offer improved breathability and waterproofing
  • Taped seams further keep moisture from sneaking inwards
  • Sleeves remove at elbow for a cleaner jersey feel when short-sleeve
  • Convertible zips are tucked between fabric layers to prevent irritation
  • Keep your riding essentials at hand with two deep pockets, 1 pump sleeve
  • Gabba-style drop tail hem with reflective panel elevates low light visibility

    Great jacket!

    Familiarity:
    I've used it several times
    Fit:
    Runs small

    I ordered this jacket after reading the reviews. I'm normally a size L in Castelli (5'11'', 180 lbs, 39 to 40 suit jacket) but the reviewers were accurate in saying this jacket fits slimmer. So I ordered an XL. The shoulders, and upper pec areas, were a touch loose for my tastes because I normally like a snug fit, but I think a L would have been too slim in the body. Like one of the other reviewers noted, this is a quality jacket, and the red/red-orange looks much better in person. I live in Northern CA and rode with it in mild to warm weather, including getting caught in the rain once, with no issues for about 7 days. Unfortunately, I crashed my bike and ripped the jacket badly. Will hope that I can find another XL, especially on sale, or see if Castelli can do a repair. I'd highly recommend it. Thanks CC!

    Best jacket for shoulder seasons!

    Fit:
    True to size

    This jacket is fantastic for spring and fall. Great material, wind blocking and breathable. I wear it here in New England where the weather is changeable. For 35-45 a long sleeve baselayer, over 45 a short sleeve. The zip off sleeves are even colorcoded! Leave it to Cascella! I’m 5’7”, 150# and the medium is perfect. Wish I could give it 6 stars.👍🏻

    The new Perfetto is even better!

    Familiarity:
    I've used it several times
    Fit:
    Runs small

    Received my new Perfetto RoS Convertible Jacket (Limited Edition, in red) in early April 2020. First impressions upon unboxing were: 1) it is better-looking than the photos here show (I had been a little skeptical of the red with the black sleeves); 2) the materials and craftsmanship are obviously high quality; 3) it's more comfortable than my Gabba 3 (which I also like a lot); 4) the fit is perfect - snug but with room for 1-2 baselayers. It feels considerably warmer than the Gabba 3, with a light fleecy material on the inside, but still not too thick. It felt it would breathe well. I've taken it on 3 rides in temps from the mid-40s to mid-50s (F), with some wind, and I used either a l-s or s-s baselayer. It has very effectively blocked the wind. Breathability has been very good - not once have I felt it was stuffy or clammy, which is an improvement on the Gabba 3, which could occasionally feel clammy. I simply didn't even think about it. The combination of materials on front and back seems excellent for keeping out the weather while maintaining breathability. This already feels like one of the best pieces of cycling kit I've ever gotten - I think it will be very versatile, especially with the removable sleeves. Really glad I chose the Convertible, and ignored one review that suggested just getting the Gabba s-s; this simply offers more versatility for a great price - the Limited Edition was 50% off. Good looking and smart design, too. Also, the taped seams at the shoulders are reflective, which was not clear from the product description. I have not yet had the chance to test it in the rain, but the material feels like it will do a fine job of keeping out most lighter rain, just like my Gabba does. I'm 6'0'', 183 lbs., and ordered an XL. I normally wear a large in most clothing, but need to order a size up with Castelli. (I never knew Italians were smaller before I met Castelli.)

    High quality, great jacket

    However, runs VERY small; bought a large (6’ and 154lbs) and not even close. Never have worn an XL, but guess I’ll have to upgrade!

    Hi. Ive been wearing nothing but Castelli for the past 8 years. I always wear a medium and I’m 6ft 160, sometimes up to 168 depending on my training. Are you saying that the race fit is to small or is it uncomfortable unless you’re on th bike. I think i own one large size jacket and it was to leave room for layers. Let me know if this is an over all shift in the design/construction of Castelli. Thanks

    My favorite new jacket

    Runs extremely small which is par for the course for Castelli. I'm 6'1" 215 and the 3XL is a perfect fit in the roadie position. First ride with the jacket was 40 degrees misty to full downpour. It shed water like a hardshell but I got home after 50 miles and 3K feet of climbing dry as a bone. LOVE LOVE LOVE this jacket.

    Runs small & odd sleeves

    This is a very nice jacket but it runs quite small. Also, zip-on area of the removable sleeves works fine but, cosmetically, is bulky. Not a functional issue, but looks a bit odd.
