Pros & Cons

  • An improved, more aerodynamic fit over the Gabba.
  • Made using extremely lightweight materials.
  • Extra ventilation below the armpits.
  • Windproof and water repellent.
  • Castelli products tend to be smaller than the size would suggest, so order one size larger than you normally would.
  • The seams aren't taped off, so water can find its way in eventually.

The Castelli Prefetto was known as the Gabba Long Sleeve up to last year, but Castelli has decided to reserve that name for their original Gabba only for the winter collection of 2016. Castelli frequently heard cyclists describe the Gabba jersey as being "perfect". This is why they've called the jacket the Perfetto Jacket, and then tried to improve on perfection! Something which they've managed to do. They improved the water repellent properties, keeping you dry for even longer than before without sacrificing breathability. Castelli also refined the fit and added laser-cut holes to the rear pockets. The rear flap to protect against spray has been redesigned to offer an even better level of protection and fit. The reflective Castelli logo adds a dash of visibility.

The go-to jacket for 85% of autumn winter riding

Excellent fit, really comfortable. Good use of technically advanced materials in this garment. Had a nasty crash but could easily justify the cost of buying another.


  • Nice and light
  • Windproof
  • Comfortable stretchy fit


  • Not warm enough in sub zero conditions

Warm and Shower Proof

Like it's predecessor the Gabba, the Perfetto is a great jersey for those late Autumn through Winter rides. I rarely wear anything more than a base layer with this garment and have found it more than warm enough and great protection against the wind and light rain. On those warmer days or when the going gets hilly, the side zippers let the air in and quickly cool you down. And to top it all, great value at Mantel.

Great quality go for one size up as a minimum.

Great jacket/long sleeve jersey for those changable days, have also worn in all day rain, although not fully waterproof it kept me warm throughout the day despite not keeping me 100% dry.


  • Great quality
  • Waterproof (to an extent)
  • Breathable


  • Small sizing
