Squadra ER Jacket

Embrace the wind with the Castelli Squadra ER Jacket. This minimalist shell packs neatly into your jersey pocket for your long alpine climbs as a quick emergency layer when the wind chill starts to get to you. Repelling light rain, and nearly all wind, you'll find it doesn't take much to warm back up with the wind off of your shoulders and your body working as you ascend to the top of the mountain pass. An ideal essential to keep in your saddle bag, or carry with you on any ride, the Castelli Squadra ER is made from polyester ripstop that boasts 100% wind protection and moderate water resistance. Rear reflective details improve your visibility to cars, and features a rear-vent opening to keeping cool.

  • An essential wind shell to stow in your saddle bag or pocket
  • Coated polyester ripstop is windproof and water resistant
  • Rear vent allows for breathing as you ascend alpine roads
  • Camlock zipper for easy adjustment
  • Increase your visibility to cars with reflective detailing

For my size, 5'9" & 170 lbs, medium build, XL was perfect. Overall a very nice wind/rain jacket for the price. I have used it many times. I bring it on iffy days, packed in a jersey pocket.

This "jacket" is, literally, the quality of the windbreakers that get handed-out for free at baseball games and golf tournaments. In addition, I'm 5'10, 165lbs - I ordered a Large, and it was so under-sized that I couldn't even zip it up. Awful. I will be returning this. Given that numerous reviews have said the same/similar things, it is unconscionable that Backcountry continues to try to unload this garbage on its customers.

Windbraker, my favorite cycling clothing. Keeps wind out and air in. Know how to use it: Best for underlayering: 20F-40/45F is excellent. 50F is to hot. Wintertime Merino wool underneath, or thin sweatshirt. Fits into a bottle cage bag for off and on during inclement weather. Order big, has skinny arms. No pockets.

I typically wear an XL in normal clothing. I ordered a XXL and it was extremely small. As soon as I put my arm in it felt like it was going to rip. What a rip off.

If I could give ZERO STARS I would. The sizing is way off. I have several Castelli items including two jackets which fit fine. This is sized much too small. I’m a 42 chest and the Large was way too small. The quality is beyond cheap. Made in China should be your warning, the material is absolutely sheer and not worth it. Then you get charged $7 to return an item that shouldn’t be listed because it’s such a departure from the quality that one expects from this brand. I have always been impressed with my Castelli purchases in the past. This item is nothing short of awful. Please heed and look elsewhere for a wind stopper jacket.

It reads that it is an XL, but it is not. It is also very poorly made....once sleeve is longer than the other and very cheap quality.

runs small for me. 5"6" 180 lbs wide shoulders. I go back and forth between medium and large with regular clothes. Did a large for this squadra jacket but it was tight. Also, the material is stiff, does not breathe, and super thin. You can see through the material.

How it fits...

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

If you have read other reviews you know that Castelli sizing runs on the smaller. This made ordering a little stressful because I didn't know if I was getting something that was going to fit me or not. With that said, everything I got fits me really well. For your sake here's my weight, height, and the size I purchased. Weight: 185 Height: 5'.9" Size: XXL Additional Sizing: My jacket size is 42 regular Fit: The fits loosely but not too loosely. It comfortably fits over my jersey and vest. Overall I am pleased, but it's not without its issues. The fit is great and it looks awesome. It does not breath. Like at all. If you're looking for something to keep you warm on a cool morning ride this is not it. I am not a sweaty dude, but this thing is like a sauna. The other downside, at least for the white one, is that it's really transparent. Whatever you're wearing underneath clearly shows through. If you had a printed t-shirt on you can see whatever is on it clear as day. I have used it in the rain and it does the job.

Very helpful info!

Lots of info , Thank You.

Poor quality, no vents, not breathabler, Made in China. Very noisy and stiff. Iron on logo looks cheap. 3XL fit was ok, but fit funny in chest. 6'0. 200lb. This is the third Castelli coat I have tried. Not every ordering another one....

Does Not Breathe

Familiarity:

Fit:
Runs small

All these reviews about Castelli product sizing miss the point. Yes, all Castelli runs SMALL!. They are designed for Euro-bodies, not American wide bodies. As for this jacket, it fit fine but it's like a wearing a tent. There is no vapor exchange, it has an airless feel about it, no breathability. As for precip. protection, it might be effective, but when it's not raining, you'll pay price if your exertion level goes up. Also, the material is not what I'd call supple or soft: it's rather stiff. So if you push hard in damp conditions, I'd pay more for a breathable rain cape and leave this thing for walking the dog.

Ordered a Medium and probably should have ordered at least a Large. It was very odd. I could barely wear it and it fit like a halter top. Made for some funny pictures. It fit my 5ft. tall 105lbs wife perfectly ;). Returned and bought some other stuff instead.

I'm 6'3", slim fit, 38' chest, not a long torso or legs, so in the middle. I ordered L and it fits me perfectly in terms of chest, back length and sleeve length. I even tried with a base layer, long sleeve jersey and it still fits fine. It's not to comfy in a "walking" position, but in a riding position you don't even feel it. First ride was a 54 miles ride, in the mid 50's with a lot of climbs and descends. I have to tell you, this jacket saved the day. I unzipped it while things were hot after a climb but in high speed descend it was a must. I took it off after we got out from the wood in the full sun, it was 60's already - it packs small and fits any back pocket. Love it. For me, it runs true to size, and trust me, I have hard times finding a good fit being tall and slim.

Perfect Wind/Light Rain Riding Shell

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

After riding a few times, I can say that this jacket does its job well, especially for the price. It kept a healthy fall wind (cloudy, mid-50 temp) off of my body and kept me dry through a few light showers. Easily packs into my saddle bag alongside a few other essentials. The sizing is certainly small when compared with US charts - pay exclusive attention to the measurements. I am 6'4" / 215 lbs and typically wear a Large. The 3XL fits me perfectly.

Thanks for the great review Barak!

Small in size but mighty in performance

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

Jacket is great, but like all the other reviews, this runs small... very small. If you’re fit like a Tour de France rider, order one size up. If you look like the rest of us, go 2 sizes up. But the jacket is fantastic, folds down to fit perfectly into your back pocket so that you can be prepared for anything that hits you on the ride, wether that be a cold wind, or light rain, this jacket is ideal for everyone.
