Extra Coverage Plus Enhanced Dexterity
To fit into the Perfetto family, a glove had better be pretty spectacular. By using reduced-seaming technology and the new GORE-TEX INFINIUM™ WINDSTOPPER® fabric, Castelli produced a glove that is deceptively warm while staying reasonably thin and allowing maximum dexterity. For this version of the Perfetto, Castelli has added grip features in the palm as well as what they call the Castelli Damping System for comfort. This is the kind of breakthrough glove you've come to expect from Castelli.
Note: While identical in their construction, the men's and women's versions vary slightly in their sizing. Men's gloves can be identified by the Castelli logo and will run about a half-size larger than their female counterparts. Feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.

My hands don't tolerate cold well (Raynaud's). So I have to use lobsters with a liner in anything below 45 degrees. These cover me pretty well from 50 to 55, 45 to 50 with a very thin liner. They get a bit moist inside if it's too warm.
One issue is the length of the fingers. I have another pair of Castelli full-finger gloves (XXL) that fit, well, like a glove on my size 8 to 8.5 mitts. The Perfetto is an XL and extends off my fingertips between 5 and 10mm. The silicone grips are nice. Haven't tried them in the rain yet - but work well in a mist/fog situation.
This is my fourth pair of Castelli gloves and I'm very satisfied. They replaced a six year old pair of Scaldas, and the Perfettos are a real improvement. The have the right amount of cushioning, are easy to get on and off, and the fit is spot on. There so many options when it comes to cycling gloves, but I've been loyal to Castelli because the products always deliver and therefore the price is justified. If you're looking for a glove that will work well from high 40's to mid 50's this is the one.
Needed a glove for riding on 40-60 degree days, with occasional rain. My hands get cold quite easily, but these gloves have kept then comfortable when riding for several hours in temps down on the low 40's. And they do this while being very comfortable and affording excellent dexterity. Palms are slightly tacky and make gripping handlebars, brake hoods and water bottles a snap.
It's a bit of a struggle to don them, but that allows the cuffs to fit easily inside even snug jacket sleeves.
They fit very well with good tactile feel thru the fingers. My disappointment was the lack of any wind protection for the back of the hands and fingers. Cold air/wind seem to cut right thru and turn your fingers/hands [mine anyways] ice cold, I suffer my 30+ years of sun/ozone exposure doing long distance races [double centuries and up] during which I never wore any gloves. Living in NCal and NV for this period contributed to my particular issue. Living now in upstate NY exacerbates my current hand issue.
Save for temperature variations I would still buy them.
I purchased large and exchanged for medium. I vary between medium and large. The fingers are too long even for the medium yet require some effort to get on the hand. Once on - and with a little bit of break in time - they are comfortable for the ride. The problem is they can be very difficult to remove if the hands sweat. They stick. I've even had to have my partner pull them off with two hands. That makes them difficult to remove mid-ride.
I will continue to use them though. Once on the hand, the keep fingers warm enough in 50F ambient temp. Grip is good on handlebars. The screen touch tips are useless.
Works great at keeping my hands warm and dry in temperatures above 40 F. Can change gears easily. Would definitely recommend. Size seems about normal. I ordered a medium which is about right compared to other gloves I've purchased.
My first Castelli glove, and I am impressed. Sizing chart was correct and it fits great - snug on the fingers without a lot of extra space at the tips for me. Got it on sale as an added bonus.
I really love the Perfetto line at Castelli
Well made & great fit
These gloves are very nice & feel great in use.
The Castelli Damping System on palms works well as does the
GoreTex infinium wind stopper fabric Nice!
These are comfortable but mo Perfetto. The description says windproof but I wore them on a day in low 50's and my hands got cold and i could definitely feel the wind.
However, I'm a little cold prone, so these will probably be comfortable to others if not prone to cold. Good fit although the index finger was a little long.
My hands vary in gloves between medium and large. I started with large and the fingers were too long. I returned for the medium. I can barely fit my hands into the medium gloves and still the fingers are too long. Also the phone touch surface on thumb and forefingers don't work and came out frayed.
fit so nice and just the right amount of warmth to dexterity ratio ive found in a winter glove. ive actually began to use them as my daily all purpose gloves because i like them so much. touch screen sensitive fingers dont seem to work (but that's all "phone sensitive" finger gloves and me)
