A must have.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Ive gotten used to starting my pre sunrise rides with this on, It packs into a jersey pocket easily and does a great job on windy days. Great item for the cost.

Bought as a Christmas gift, looks cool.

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

To be honest, the jacket doesn't look like a standard Castelli jacket, because it's nearly see-through and I love that about it. It doesn't look like it has a super fitted cut, but it is fitted when it's on. The stitching looks a bit rough in some areas, but it is a good deal for the price point. It's lightweight, breaks the wind and offers additional protection for quick drops in temp. When folded nicely, it fits in a saddle bag and will save your ride when you're in a bind and need another layer. I bought an XL for a 6'5" 210lb man.

Good fit

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XL

I'm 5'8" 194lb and purchased xl. Fits is good and snug but not restrictive, comfortable in the drops, average ride time 10 hrs per week. Blocks the wind well, have not tried in wet weather so unable to comment on how waterproof the jacket is. Folds up and stores easily in my jersey pocket. Would recommend for a light jacket.

Fits and feels like a rain cape should

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I usually wear a Medium jersey, and this medium jacket (rain cape) fit correctly for an over-coat. It is designed to go over whatever else you have on, and it fits like it will do that properly without being too loose. The arms are long enough for me (long armed person here) when I reach the bars and the shoulders are wide enough to not stretch across the back of the jacket. The extra tail length helps a lot too.
This color looks white in the picture, but it's more like a white mesh with a plastic-ish liner. If you wear it over your jersey you will be able to see your jersey through it with a little fading.

Fulfills Expectations

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medlum

I purchased this shell for mountain bike rides, specifically due to the slightly thicker nylon used in the jacket. The fit is a bit boxy compared to my Velo Jacket (which is a dedicated road shell), but not by much. The louvered vents may add to some ventilation, but this is not a breathable jacket, so be warned. I primarily use this either the weather looks iffy or during Spring/Fall when temps can really vary. Overall, I do like the simplicity of this jacket and fit is just roomy enough to cowboy a bit on my mtb.

Great price for a great jacket.

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

Sadly, finally had to use it. Easy to carry in jersey pocket and quick to put on. As with any rain jacket I’ve ever worn enduces some sweating. But expected. Vents are perfectly located and give great airflow when partially unzipped. Hi-viz is BRIGHT! -typical cycling clothing fit runs a little small. I’m 5’11” and 220ish 44-46 chest. 2xl fits perfect.

Nice but Small

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 2 XL

Nice jacket but runs a little small. I where a 2 XL in most everything. This needs to be a size bigger.

Castelli Wind Breaker

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Extra large

Awesome windbreaker. Use it every morning ride.

Be Seen

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

I've used this jacket quite a few times now, and the best thing about it is how bright and visible it is. On the mornings when it starts to warm up to quickly, the jacket is compressible enough to put in a jersey pocket without feeling to much added bulk.

Bright! Dry! and Windproof!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

A great addition for those mornings or evenings when the temperature and weather is unpredictable. Lightweight and folds easily to store in a jersey pocket. The neon color provides greater visibility for safer riding when the weather is questionable.

Bright! Dry! and Windproof!


    Responding to the reviews below...

    Castelli offers, I think, inarguably the largest and greatest line-up of performance cycling clothing in the world. I think the problem here is that this is a -very- difficult category to pull off. There really is no such thing as a $100 (no less $50) jacket that is wind-proof and rain-proof and that breathes well. It doesn't exist in any company's line up.

    This is why Castelli makes their line of lightweight, packable, fully taped, dedicated rain capes such as the "Idro" and "Tempesta" and the new "Dolomiti X" , all made with very expensive water-proof yet breathable textiles. But no, none of these rain capes costs < $250.

    If you are looking for a good $100 light, packable windbreaker, I highly recommend Castelli's "Velo" at $90 (it is vented much better along the sides). Or, perhaps, try Castelli's "Superleggera" light rain jacket ($100), depending upon your needs.

    I would not generally ride long periods in the Squadra nylon windbreaker because "sweat in a bag" will occur.

    An inexpensive windbreaker, like this one, is best for: (a) value, (b) cool start mornings, and (c) as insurance for rides under sketchy skies.

    Fit: The Squadra is definitely cut fuller than most of Castelli's other jackets.

    Sizing: True to size. Or size up +1 if you want this to fit over a thicker Winter cycling jacket.

    At this price, however, the Squadra is super good looking and a good value.

    Poor design and white is actually clear

    • Size Bought: Medium

    Didn't expect much from the jacket due to the price, but it still came in below those expectation. Castelli should quit making this jacket given the quality of their other products. Also, the white is more "clear" than white.

    Not as nice as Sottile - disappointing

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    I was excited to get what I thought was this year's version of the Sottile rain jacket. It isn't even close. The material is less comfortable and less breathable. The fit is horrible compared to the Sottile. The body is cut fat and the arms are cut short (not exactly a cycling fit).

    I'm disappointed to say that everything is wrong with this jacket, and it's a shame because I love the Sottile.

    This thing is junk

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small

    I bought this in size M. It was tiny (medium is usually a bit big on me) and I was sweating after zipping it up. It is very plastic and not well made. Honestly, it feels like the kind of thing you would get for free, like from a bank or a store. I can not even imagine wearing this thing on a bike ride.

    not what i expected

      maybe it's me...i was expecting a jacket with pockets in the back...not the case. i was expecting that i wouldn't sweat like a pig and that the sleeves of this jacket wouldn't stick to my bare arms when i did wear it on a cool morning ride and later during a brief shower. the vents were useless. no, i made a bad decision. the only saving grace is that it really looks good.

      I totally agree, it was my first castelli jacket almost turned me off of castelli. You get what you paid for.

      It mentions louvered side vents, do these...

      It mentions louvered side vents, do these work well?

      Strikes me as a gimmick. I own the Leggero Jacket and see no reason why regular seam vents aren't good enough. I guess the theory is that these 'louvered' vents might keep water out better, but I've never had water in the Leggero's vents.

      Good Value

        Got the white color, which is partially transparent. So beware if that is an issue for you. Looks nice and the extra long tail will keep you dry from wheel spray. It's a real athletic cut and not at all blousy . I'm 6'0" and 188lbs and the XL is just right over a thin base layer and long sleeve jersey. If I had much more on underneath I'd need a bigger size than that. So, as with all Castelli gear - size up. This appears to be well made and a good value for $50.
