Castelli Elemento Lite Vest – Thermal Gilet Review

Castelli Elemento Lite Vest – Thermal Gilet

What they say: Three-layer insulated construction with engineered air permeability, for the best combination of warmth, breathability and low weight.

What we say: Very much a lightweight jacket without the sleeves, the Elemento vest is supposed to fit in a jersey pocket but we struggled to get it all in. It’s carefully constructed to allow enough airflow to avoid moisture build-up while overheating our core never proved an issue.

The two rear pockets are big, measuring nearly 20cm deep making this ideal for longer rides, while just below them sits an extended flap to help keep spray off you. The Plisse sides give an interesting look that will stretch to ensure a close fit. Available in sizes S-XXL, it weighs 279g.

Conclusion: Beautifully constructed and engineered, one for those who want warmth all ride long.
