Perfect storm.

Dark clouds in the sky used to mean bad times under bulky, clammy, so-called "waterproof / breathable" jackets, but Castelli changed all that with the advent of their Gabba line of rain jerseys. They've since improved their game-changing protective yet sleek wet-weather garments with the Perfetto Long Sleeve Rain Jersey that takes the place of the old Gabba jacket. It fits better than ever with a redesigned rear splash flap, which lies flatter for more coverage without spoiling your aerodynamic profile, and Nano Flex panels under the arms give you unrestricted mobility for total comfort. The Gore® Windstopperâ„¢ X-Lite Plus fabric has a stronger water-repellent coating that keeps out the wet without sacrificing anything in terms of breathability. Combined with the full-length YKK® Vislon zipper and zippered side-vents, the Perfetto Long Sleeve is just at home on chilly dry rides as it is in torrential racing conditions.

Features three rear pockets, silicone gripper hem, and reflective accents. Available in multiple colors.

Note: Castelli tops and bottoms are designed with a performance cut that often runs smaller than that of other manufacturers. Consider sizing-up one size to ensure a comfortable fit — e.g., if you normally wear a Medium, select a Large in Castelli. Feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.

High Castelli quality, beware of sizing

This is the usual high quality, high-end Castelli brand clothing. it's a lovely jersey that performs as advertised. Just beware, Castelli runs VERY small. Consider sizing up 1 or even 2 sizes unless you're racer thin and small boned.

Good to the mid to low 30's with a light base layer and right helmet liner gloves, etc. Zipper side vents are useful as it warms up. Size up as this is Castelli.

This jersey keeps me warm and dry in the Portland, OR winter. My go-to jersey for training out here. Only complaint (and not really a complaint) is a bit warmer than advertised. Mostly that's a matter of layering appropriately under it (I wear a summer baselayer under it when it's in the low 40's and as long as I'm rolling I'm fine). Love the color - nice and bright (and safe!).

Perfetto is great for rain and wind, but sizing is wacko

Very nice design for spring riding with spitting rain and cold wind. But the sizing is ridiculous. I have a 40 chest and 34 waist, and skinny arms. Normally wear a Medium to Large. But I could not get into an XL Perfetto, had to get an XXL. Your recommendation to go up one size is bad, make it two sizes at least. Highly recommend people buy different size Castelli's and return the one that does not fit.

Go-To jersey for Intense Training in Cold-to-Cool Conditions
rating
by Fredster
Competitive Racer
Portland, OR
3 of 3 customers found this review helpful.

I mostly use this jersey without a base-layer or anything underneath. (I had been advised that it is really intended to be worn over a jersey.) For freezing and just-below-freezing temperatures, I wear a very thin base layer underneath, and this has worked very well. For freezing-at-the-start, but temps expected to warm during the ride, I start with a thin windbreaker over the jersey, until I'm warmed-up. The Perfetto does not have a fleecy interior (instantly warm & fuzzy) like the other long sleeve winter jerseys I own. It feels almost cool against my skin when I first put it on. This worried me, initially, as I feared the Perfetto would not feel warm enough. The more I use it, however, the more I appreciate how it keeps me warm without letting me get TOO warm. It breathes very well, and for hard climbing efforts, I find I over-heat less, and stay drier inside, than with my fleecy jerseys. Once I am warmed-up, it is plenty warm enough for downhills, without the windbreaker. It blocks wind well. I also appreciate the aero fit-no material flapping in the wind. When I'm going to be workingclimbing hard-generating a lot of waste heat-on a coldcool ride, this has become my go-to jersey.

Favorite jacket
rating
by GDSPDX

I love this jacket. Its comfortable, breathable and (nearly) waterproof. It will keep you dry for light rain and will work in real rain for short periods. Mostly, its still a castelli jacketmeaning its tight fitting and comfortable for hard rides. That said, I did go up a size. I typically wear M in Castelli, but went with L for this jacket. The M literally felt a size smaller than my typical castelli summer jersey. So, forget your ego and get the size the fits! Great jackethighly recommend it.

My Go To Jersey for the fall
rating
by zebweb

This is a great product and a great value if on sale. Castelli is the leading cycling clothier in my view and this jersey demonstrates the design appeal of its products. On the first chilly, windy ride of the year today I was comfortable with this and a breathable undershirt but the others on the ride struggled with more layers coming on and off. It has great wind protection but I have not used it in the rain. But I purchased it for fall and winter riding in dry conditions and it is worth every sent, NB like all Castelli products order at least a size larger than for US sizing.

Review for Castelli Men's Gabba 2 Long Sleeve Rain Jersey
6 of 6 customers found this review helpful.

I own a lot of cycling clothing. The Gabba 2 rain Jersey has quickly become my favorite. It stops the wind beautifully, sheds moderate rain, and most importantly does not leave me soaked in sweat. I have used the Gabba from the mid 30's with strong winds to the high 50's and hill climbing in the sun. The front vent zips are effective at cooling things down when climbing. I wear a wool baselayer with Capilene mid layer under the Gabba for the colder weather, and just a light base for the warmer days. This is the most versatile jersey/jacket I have ever owned.Castelli has put out a lot of hype over this jersey, but, for once you can believe the hype. It is also comfortable and very stretchy. I was able to buy a size larger than I ordinarily would to accommodate layers underneath the Gabba and it still fits nice and snug when worn without layers. With the Gabba I am comfortable without getting overheated through a wide range of temperatures. This is by far the best cycling top I have ever used. Although expensive, it is absolutely worth every penny. I will use this 9 months of the year.

So, let me start by saying that I love my Gabba 2. I prefer it over all other outer layers. That said, there is no way this is a rain jersey. If there's anything but a sprinkle, the Gabba will get absolutely soaked through. Pair it with a rain shell and you're good to go.

Review for Castelli Men's Gabba 2 Long Sleeve Rain Jersey

I've been wearing the Gabba 2 jersey for several months and am really impressed with its ability to block out the cold and still breathe enough to stay dry. Even though it's not made from your typical bulky, heavy winter fabric, it does a great job keeping a cold weather wimp like me warm and dry.

The fit runs small as I am 5'5 107 lbs and a men's small fits me perfectly.

I chose the men's version rather than the women's mostly because the Yellow Fluo color is only available in men's. I prefer to be as visible as possible, especially when riding in winter conditions.

Drizzly and 40 degrees? The Gabba 2 and a light base layer will keep the core warm. A great jersey to wear when riding through a wet PDX winter. I got the yellow which helps me stay visible on early morning foggy rides.

This jacketjersey performed as advertised. This product will work well for any fair-mild weather rider that naturally run hot - block wind and breath efficiently (haven't gotten into rain yet). I worn this with an Adidas ClimaCool compression shirts in dry 40F weather in SLC, UT for a ride up one of the canyon - most of the ride was comfortable and never overheated. However, the temperature got a bit colder (sun setting) the descent got a bit chilly when I'm not cranking, an extra layer would be best for longer descents.

Review for Castelli Men's Gabba 2 Long Sleeve Rain Jersey

Love that the jersey blocks wind. It is great to not have to take a jacket on and off for descents. Can feel a little cool and clammy compared to my normal fleece thermal jersey, wearing a base layer under it helps. Jersey wasn't super water proof, is fine for a light sprinkle or road spray, but any real rain I would want a rain jacket over the top

Wore this Perfetto new, during 3 days training in rain. Lightweight and snug - doesn't flap. Unzipped vents were great for cooling during harder efforts. Not a warm jacket, but windproof. Can be tightly folded and forced into a jersey pocket. Front zip useable with gloved fingers. Rubber seams and a long tail keeps the worst of the wet soaking your backside. Roadgrime washed right out. Looks sharp in red.

Perfetto is Perfect for Winter
rating
by David
Cycling Enthusiast
Portland, OR
1 of 1 customers found this review helpful.

The Perfetto fills a unique space with its breathability, wind blocking, water resistance, and lack of bulk or weight. The jersey is fairly breathable but also wind blocking to make it a great solution on dry and cold or windy days. The suitable temperature range for the Perfetto is very wide when combined with different base layers and using the available abdominal and full length zipper. The jersey has some water resistance, but it is quickly overwhelmed in steady or heavy rain. However, it's repellent enough and its relative breathability make the Perfetto a better option than a hard shell in light rain or fog.

The fit of a jersey is slim. A size small fits me perfectly, I'm 5'9 and 135 lbs.

There may be less expensive options, but the flexibility and range of the Perfetto jersey make it well worth the price. This is actually my second one, which I'm only replacing after a couple years because of stains on my first.
