New for winter 2018 the women's Perfetto W Vest (gilet) allows you to upgrade any cycling wardrobe choice to Gabbaesque performance. A packable vest with a Windstopper front and shoulders complete with a high-stretch breathable woven back and twin pockets.
Perfectly protective, perfectly aero. The Perfetto name is very apt for this vest. Meaning “Perfect” in Italian, Castelli has engineered every detail to make it just right.
Firstly they made the front and shoulders in warm windproof breathable Gore Windstopper fabric the same fabric used for the iconic Gabba jersey. With the addition of free-breathing Nano Flex Light fabric on the back allowing a close to the body fit. It’s the perfect temperature range extension for your women's cycling jersey without negatively affecting your aero credibility.
If the weather does warm up the Perfetto Vest is compact enough to easily fit in half a jersey pocket. The vest also has two lightweight back pockets of its own, for carrying food (but we are guessing your daily essentials will be in your jersey pockets to save unpacking when you slip the vest off for the climbs.
Both the front and the back are highly water resistant using a Durable Water Repellant (DWR) treatment so it should keep you mostly dry if you do get caught in a bit of rain.
The Perfetto Vest also scores highly in the safety stakes thanks to the reflective piping all around the hem and arm openings.
