PAULO R.wrote a review of Castelli Sempre Jacket - Men's on December 28, 2017
Familiarity: I've used it several times
This is the nicest cycling jacket I've ever owned. From the laser cut vents on the collar and the rear pockets to the little zipper flap and the snug cuffs this jacket is super high-quality. Considering how light and pack-able it is it's noticeably warmer than the Superleggara jacket with more back flap. The sleeves are the right length and I think I have average to slightly better than average reach. The cuffs keep cold air from sneaking into the sleeves and interact well with gloves. The zipper seals up behind the zipper flap and keeps the cold air outside. It's breathable but it can get a bit steamy during hard efforts like hard climbs. This didn't really bother me because I felt like sweating will be an issue on steep climbs regardless of what you wear. The rear pockets are too big, which is either a complaint or a feature depending on your needs. There are just 2 large pockets split evenly on the rear and my phone kind of shuffles around from side-to-side. If you need to store gloves, arm warmers or anything bulky they'll certainly hold whatever you want to carry but smaller items can require digging around. It lives up to it's name as a jacket you can wear all day. I use it as a jacket for rides where I know the sun won't be coming out to play. It works well with a long-sleeve baselayer or armwarmers for multiple layers of warmth/wind blockage. As with all Castelli items, it runs a bit small. I fit between a medium and large in T-shirt sizes but this jacket fits me best as an XL.
