Castelli Perfetto RoS Long Sleeve Jersey
Continuing the proud lineage of their renowned Gabba, Castelli’s Perfetto RoS Long Sleeve Jersey offers race-fit weather protection that is perfect for racing, fast rides and training through the cooler months. RoS stands for Rain or Shine, denoting that Castelli feels this is a product which can be worn in a variety of conditions without suffering from overheating or a lack of breathability or getting soaked to the skin.
To this end, the jacket uses GORE-TEX INFINIUM™ WINDSTOPPER® 205 Warm fabric on the front areas, a fabric which is windproof and highly water-resistant, with critical seams also being taped to further increase its weather protection. The inner is lightly brushed but doesn’t offer huge amounts of inherent insulation, so this is not a piece for snuggling into on cold cafe rides, rather it is better suited to tempo efforts and fast-paced, non-stop outings, much like the original Gabba. Adjusting the thickness of baselayer worn beneath the Perfetto extends its usable range, and provides the perfect way to enjoy its flap-free protection across a broader range of conditions. Two zipped, mesh-backed vents down the sides allow a hit of fresh air if things start feeling a bit warm and the high collar and slim cuffs prevent unwanted drafts.
Whilst just two rear pockets might not seem very many, there is some method to their madness, as the two pockets can then be much larger than normal. This facilitates the carrying of a larger jacket or more spare layers and makes accessing them whilst wearing gloves easier too. There is a sleeve to keep a pump separate within the pocket, which is also quite handy for dropping a house key into.
