Description

Perfetto RoS Long-Sleeve Jersey

Back for another generation, Castelli launches its Perfetto jersey into the Rain-or-Shine line with a boost in water protection and breathability, while still maintaining the coveted cut and aesthetic of the fan favorite. We saw the Perfetto spell out the end of the Castelli Gabba era, and while it was a little bit bittersweet at first, once we got to know that our favorite features from the Gabba would carry forward, the deal got sweetened with elevated fabrics and technology, and the newest iteration continues that trend with the Perfetto RoS Long-Sleeve Jersey, packing in new GORE-TEX Infinium fabrics to offer you heat at the core, and ventilation at the back, enabling you to ride hard no matter the weather.

While the materials are undoubtedly an impressive feature of the Perfetto, what makes the piece truly stand out is its attention to fit. Cut with the race in mind, the Perfetto features forward-oriented sleeves, and an abbreviated chest that reduce bulk when you're in the cycling position. Of course, this means that the jersey feels a bit tight across the chest when standing upright, but when stretched out on your bike its built to contour perfectly to your muscles for an aerodynamic fit that skips bulky folds of excess fabric. In contrast to its predecessor, the Gabba, the Perfetto fits even closer to your chest and stomach, preventing any sagging and bulk through your core that we often find in winter-oriented kits.

  • Castelli's updated Perfetto excels through rain and wind
  • GORE Infinium 205 Warm fabric at front fights the elements, insulates
  • Flexible back panel of GORE's Infinium 203 lets you move freely
  • Breathable membranes enable exceptional moisture management
  • Race-worthy cut sheds excess fabric for a form-fitting silhouette
  • Zippered vents at chest drop heat in a pinch
  • 2 rear pockets with pump sleeve can be accessed with gloves on

This is a really great quality jacket, which you'd expect from Castelli at this price point. I initially ordered the XL (my usual Castelli size) but had to send it straight back as it was strangely really small and I could barely put it on; so went up to 2XL. It's definitely a race-fit design, which I prefer when riding in these breezy fall/winter months but doesn't leave much room if you want to layer up. I've ridden it on a 45-50F ride and it was perfect with a thin base layer, and could really notice the breathability. Went for the bright orange which looks awesome and provides good visibility for those dark winter mornings/evenings. Great service from Backcountry as always.

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 show (I had been a little skeptical of Limited Edition's 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 rides in temps from the lower-40s to mid-50s (F), with some wind, and I used either a l-s or s-s baselayer, depending on conditions. 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. I did one longish ride in moderate rain, and the material kept me dry, just like my Gabba does, and I did not get very clammy. The combination of materials on front and back (lighter) seems excellent for keeping out the weather while maintaining breathability. And the torso zip vents help regulate temps. This already feels like one of the best pieces of cycling kit I've ever worn - 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'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.)

I love the fit, I love the function, and I'm really happy with this jersey! I find that in the recommended temperature range of 39-57 you should NOT need a base layer. If you choose to add one then you're just asking to overheat (though you could always remove the base layer later in the ride). This jersey (from what I gather) is designed to breathe yet also keep you warm. Even though high 30s may feel cool at first, trust in the jersey. You will warm up and the jersey will do its job. It's still winter here so I have not worn this jersey in the high 40s or 50s. I'd suspect it would be rather warm in the 50s, maybe even too warm, depending on how hard you're riding. I tend to run a little warm so for me this jersey would be great at temps up to about 50F. Anything warmer than 50 and you might want something a little lighter unless you're just doing base miles. As far as the fit goes, this jersey fits very well. I have a sprinters build and the large size fits like a glove. It's certainly closer to a race fit than a flapping-in-the-wind club fit. I like that. Overall this is a great jersey for chilly rides.

Where do I start? This is definitely a racers jersey or jacket or jersey? It fits really small. The arms are really skinny. The good thing is, it does have some stretch to it. I've worn this coat from 40 to 50 degrees with a thin Nike base-layer. I don't usually run hot. I'm a 20-22 group rider, not a racer. What's weird about this coat is that when you start out, you can feel the wind on the arms and chest, more so than say.. the original Gabba or the Transparente jersey. But when you start to build up heat with an effort, you get clammy and hot and it won't vent. Even with the chest vents. They are off to the side too much to take in air. They are probably letting some out, I guess, just not enough. I did manage to get caught in the rain with it on. It rained for about 20 minutes and then showers off and on. I stayed dry. Clammy, but dry. The problem was, it was 46 degrees with wind, and I was still hot, so I had the front un-zipped halfway and I got a little wet in the front. Another gripe is the rear pockets are "set-in", so you have to reach a little further behind you. And yes, there are only two, which isn't awful, but it makes your stuff harder to find because your other stuff is in the way. I usually put my gel and bar in one, my phone in one, and then keys and miscellaneous in the third one. I was fighting keys, and spare lenses, trying to find my gel with gloves on. Also, they are short in height. My Pixel 3 reaches the top. Is this coat all bad? The zippers are really easy to operate, even the chest vent ones. It did keep me dry. While snug, it does stretch and feels good on the bike fit-wise. If they moved the side vents forward, and added sleeve vent zippers, this coat might not get stay so clammy. And also go back to the 3 pocket style. I guess I'll just keep this for the mild, showery days. Too clammy for anything else.
