The Trasparente is our favorite autumn and spring piece, and we find ourselves wearing it on winter days with the temperature below the stated comfort range. It’s lightweight and fits like a jersey, yet keeps the wind off the front with its Windstopper XLlite Plus fabric. The Trasparente features splash protection on the back and wind protection on the arms.
Windstopper X-Llite Plus stretch fabric on front is windproof and splash resistant
Warmer fabric on back for high breathability
Full-length YKK Camlock zipper
Embossed tone-on-tone logo on shoulders
Elastic gripper on waist to limit ride-up
3 Rear pockets
Reflective piping on front and rear reflective tabs keep you visible in low-light conditions
Weight: 334g (large).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Knersboy Excellent product
I live at altitude (+/-1700m) in South Africa. In the winter the temperature swings from near zero at 6am to 24 degrees C at around noon, there is absolutely no winter rain and it is always sunny.
This jersey is perfect. Warm enough for early morning rides but because the sleeves are not wind proof the jersey does not get too hot later in the morning. I used the Castelli size chart and it was spot on, fit is perfect.
Expensive but worth it, i wish i had another one.......

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bakus Best Jacket for UK weather...
I have had two of the transparente jackets the last model and now this one. I absolutely love it, it is looks great it's fantastically comfortable.
For me is suitable from 0 with a base layer, right up to 18 on its own. I had the first one for about 2 years and I must have worn it over 100 times and it was showing no signs off wear.
Actually the only reason I bought this jacket was that I come off my bike pretty hard tearing a hole in the shoulder. Upon returning from the hospital having my shoulder put back into place the first thing I did was order another one of these awesome jackets. It is slightly improved from the previous model with extra windbreaking panels.
I'm 6"6' tall and 18st and the XXXL fits me just fine, actually it is one of the few jackets that have reasonably long arms do they fit well too for tall riders.
If you want a flexible jacket that may just become your favorite jacket then look no further.

When I opened this jersey to try it on, I wasn't just disappointed I was shocked!
How can a jersey of this price/calibre be constructed using harsh, chunky overlocked seams which stick into your body with the potential of causing extreme chaffing? madness!
The overall fit/shape is really good (but needed large versus the medium I would wear from other brands) and externally it looks really well constructed it's just a massive shame that they didn't smoothly flatlock stitch the many seams joining all the panels together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dropoffking Excellent Castelli fit and quality
Knew my Castelli size is between L and XL so went for XL here to fit base layers in. Used it on road for several hundred autumn Kms but also a little XC MTB, down to about 5 deg C so far. It has Gore Windstopper where you need it on the chest but the arms are not windstopper and ventilate well. The back has a more fleecy material which is nice. For colder weather I might want full windstopper but for autumn and spring this will see a lot of use.
The black is very black so consider visibility. The design is excellent, the cut is very sporting but not pro. Again if you know your "Castelli size" then I recommend this.
