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.

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.
