Still Riding Against the Wind
The Castelli Squadra Stretch Vest is their completely reengineered entry-level vest. A new coated ripstop fabric keeps the wind off the front and spray off the back, while the tightly knit side panels allow the vest to stretch to fit a wide range of shapes while keeping a close-to-body fit that eliminates fabric flapping in the wind. The collar is cut high and the back long for extra protection, and the color blocking of the stretch panels and the reflective details on the chest and tail give it an elegant design touch. This impossibly light vest keeps your wind-facing core warm while dumping excess heat through the mesh side panels.
- Coated ripstop nylon front and back to keep wind off.
- Tightly knit stretch panels on sides for perfect fit and ventilation.
- High collar to keep drafts out.
- Reflective details on chest and lower back for low-light visibility.
- Rated for 12-20°C / 54-68°F

The stretch vest is sized a bit small (I normally wear large but got the size XL) and it fits perfectly. Had minimal flapping when I get up to speed specially on the downhills and the weather is somewhere in the 50s or low 60s.
I bought this for my partner for Christmas. He usually wears a medium and occasionally a large. I ordered the large and it is definitely a race fit. It is very visible and folds up small to put in the pocket. Looks sharp but order a size up.
Used this for a ride between 32-40 deg f. I would have been miserable with out it. I do have a single issue with this, but more so because I am an odd shaped person, I have a very long torso and it isn't exactly long enough to stay down in the front. Normal people shouldn't have an issue with this
