Castelli Pro Light cycling vest
- I've used it several times
- Runs small
- 5` 9"
- 152 lbs
After reviewing several manufacturers (Bontrager/Castelli/Giordana/Louis Garneau & Santini) I decided on this vest. I am 5’9” & weigh 152 lbs.My must have qualities were super lightweight, extra slim fit, very packable, great wind protection on chest, great venting on back, smooth zipper, good style. I decided against a pocketed vest b/c I like to fly the vest open on ascents & sometimes descents. Used this vest to climb Pikes Peak, CO. Temp at base/start was 80 degrees Fahrenheit & top was 58 with a wind chill of 48. I put the vest halfway up the climb & managed my temperature well with easy zip & unzip. Ripped the descent & was pleasantly surprised how well a vest so lightweight could block the wind so well going 40mph +. Note: the vest is short in the front (to not interfere with your jersey) & long in the back (to cover your packed jersey pockets). The elastic on the armpits & waist are very form fitting.This is Castelli’s “race fit”style & it fits that way. I highly recommend for the slim racer or avid hard core cyclist that needs great wind protection & great venting.If you are looking for a more casual “do it all vest with pockets” try the Castelli Perfetto. Hope this helps.
