    Castelli Simple Jersey???

    Anybody have any opinions on it (or the sleeveless)? There is only 1 review on this site. Thanks.

    I have 3 of them there are the best "superlightweight" summer jerseys IMHO

    Use the "search" feature and you will find lots of posts on them here.

    I wear mine for nearly every ride. Great lightweight fabric for summer. Very well made. I go for the full zipper for the brutal NYC summer riding.

    Overpriced if you buy them from catalog but check ebay and should be able to snag one for $40 or less with no problems. Totaccycling had a sale a few years back $24 US.

    Also: they run very small armpit to armpit I wear a lareg and it fits tight and I wear a 42 long suit size.

    For me, Castelli Jerseys fit exceptionally well (fitted). I'm 5'10" 39" chest 156lbs. I can wear a small, which is tight fitting- but not restrictive, or a medium -which is form fitting. This fit assists in wicking sweat away, keeping you either cool in the heat or warmer when it is cool. If you carry extra weight the cut may be problematic. Try some on for proper sizing before you buy any online. Castelli is my favorite jersey, although I cannot afford to try Assos...

    like them

    I have two. They are tailored more form-fitting than most. The fabic has good wicking performance and they seem to wear well. The "simple" graphics are good if you don't like team kit jerseys
