Description

Squadra Vest

You've reached the summit of a stunning mountain pass after a tedious ascent, taking the staggering beauty that surrounds you, you are encompassed with a true sense of self affirmation for the hours of training and dedication you've put in. Pounding water, and snacking on your nutrition bar, you allow endorphins to course through your veins, moving your mind to a euphoric state. A long and windy descent awaits you, rewarding your cramped quads with a nearly effortless roll back down, through arcing bows of trees, and past vineyards. A cool breeze whisks by, reminding you that your cooling sweat will give you quite the chill as you descend, but not to worry, you brought along your Castelli Squadra Vest to take the wind off of your core, for a warm and lightly insulated ride down.

Made from polyester ripstop, the Squadra Vest cuts through the wind effortlessly, but is lightweight enough that it doesn't overly insulate, so you won't find yourself overheating from this vest. A light DWR coating is applied to the polyester to help shed a bit of rain, but it is not designed to be a completely water repellent piece, this vest is ideal for light summer rain, or chilly wind. Reflective accents adorn the back to increase your visibility to cars, and rear mesh venting helps you shed moisture to keep comfortable as you soak in the sights unfolding in front of you.

  • A minimalist vest for keeping your core warm in the breeze
  • Durable polyester ripstop cuts through wind with ease
  • Water repellant coating sheds raindrops from small showers
  • Increase your visibility to cars with reflective accents
  • Allow moisture to escape with mesh back ventilation

    How mine 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: It fits snugly but comfortably over my jersey. Plenty of room. Overall quality is good though it seems more entry-level.

    The vest is a perfect for the climate in NE Pennsylvania. You need to order three sizes larger than you wear! The zipper mount is made for a lady, (left side). Breathe deep before you zip! It should have a small pocket for your keys.......

    I followed the recommendations from everyone and sized up. Good call. I am 5'11", 174 lbs. and normally wear a medium in castelli jerseys. The large fit well around the chest, but there was extra room around the stomach. This seems consistent with castelli's low to mid-tier products over the past year or two by providing extra belly room for their jerseys. No pockets in the rear, but this is more of a product to wear until the temp warms up a bit or to have in your back pocket for that unexpected weather or cold climb/decent. Packs well in a back pocket. For the price, it does the job. Just size up when ordering.

    Castelli sizing is for ideal model men cyclists that you see on Tour De France!! I followed the measuring chart and ordered a size larger than I wear. When it arrived, it was 4 inches smaller than me! had to order a 3xl instead of an xl. Waiting for the vest to arrive????????

    I received the vest on time.. You get what you pay for so I didn't expect that much but the vest is very light, enough for the job I guess but feels kind of cheap. Two things I didn't like. Size...I mostly wear size large and I cant even join the zippers on a extra large vest Zippers: Most vest have two zippers where you can unzipper the bottom. I took it for granted it had two consider every other vest I have has two zippers, but not this one. I'm returning this one and will go and try on the next vest as to avoid this vest issue.

    Extreme race fit

    Familiarity:
    I returned this product before using it

    I have not worn Castelli in a while, and am aware of sizing up for any Italian brand. The sizing on this vest is way off. I typically wear a Large so I ordered an XXL. I can't even zip it up because it's cut like a Medium.

    ditto. based recent experience went up to xl but it wasn't enough. RB

    Blasting down Vail Pass at 40 plus mph in heavy rain and light hail and this vest kept me warm and dry. I typically wear a large in other brands but always buy one size up in Castelli.

    absurd sizing

    "small" does not describe it.

    agree. can't imagine who wears Castelli small or xs.

    I always size up for road gear vs. mtb gear or causal clothing, but this still runs about half a size small compared to other road cycling gear. I typically wear a large (in Pactimo aero fit, for example), and that gives me a little breathing room without being completely skin tight. If this vest were any smaller I couldn't have zipped it up. If you want a really, really close fit that will absolutely not flap in the wind, the sizing is probably accurate. But if you want a little room, order one size up from you normal size in road gear, or two sizes up from what you wear in causal clothing. Other than sizing, it's a nice vest, but feels a little "plasticky" and stiff.

    I see a lot of reviews of this vest running very small and I have to disagree. It is a form fitting cut and doesn't flap in the wind on the road. I bought this in a small and wear a small in all cycling products as I have a slim build.it fits comfortably over all jerseys while still being nice and snug.

    Castelli makes great products, but it's sometimes hard to find the right size, even if you own other comparable Castelli products. In this case, I own many Castelli jerseys, which are XL, but this Castelli vest is MUCH too small in an XL. I can barely get it to zip it's so tight. I would suggest getting at least one size larger than normal, possibly two. I have no idea who the tiny Italian men are that this vest is sized for. I'm sending it back unfortunately.

    The smallest sizing ever

    Familiarity:
    I returned this product before using it

    Order at least 2-3 sizes up. I wear a large in everything I knew these ran small so I ordered an XL. My torso is at least 3-4" too big around to zip it up.

    Runs too small

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

    This brand runs too small. Was a gift to a person who usually wear them and told me. I don't find the voucher and now I don't want to figure out how to return it.
