Evan S.wrote a review of Castelli Vela Vest - Men's on December 16, 2019
Familiarity: I've used it several times
For the amount of pocket space it consumes, this vest works great, and the construction is nicely form-fitting and elastic, despite the sail material being completely rigid. However after about 10 uses I started to notice microtears in the sail material, so I'm worried I'll not get more than a single season of use from it. I'm not sure what the problem is. Perhaps the tears come from attempting to stuff it into small spaces, getting it caught on zippers, etc. But if it's meant to be packable, then packing it shouldn't cause it to break.
