Get rid of the bulky jackets, the multiple jerseys and invest in a Gabba. Wish I had done this long ago.
Put a vest in my pocket, warm under layer and I am set!
Hope to add another color next year.
AWSOME piece. Treat yourself to style and comfort for those long cold rides.
The Gabby jersey is one of the go-to items for anyone riding in the unpredictable weather here in the Pac NW. Heavy enough to keep you warm on brisk rides in the mist and fog, waterproof enough that it required drainage eyelets in the back pockets, and light enough that you won't overheat in warmer (40-50 degree) winter conditions.
The Gabba women's jersey seems to run a bit small compared to other Castelli women's gear, especially across the chest.
I wear my Gabba with something underneath, thin or thicker, depending on temps. I love the fit. It runs small. I am 110 lbs and usually need a SM, but in this one I take a M. The size chart is accurate. Easily unzips for venting, but its magic is that it vents really well without unzipping. Hard to find the 3W's warm, water resistant, wicking.
I bought this for the winter in the bay area and it is the best jacket I have ever. I wear it with a base layer and a jersey and I am set for the winter. The jacket cuts the wind and breaths well enough so that I don't overheat. Highly recommend.
