With winter 2016, Castelli are changing around the products you sued to know as the "Gabba family." The Gabba is the short-sleeve race jersey/jacket that nearly every pro rider has gone out and purchased (except the lucky ones who race on Castelli teams). Everyone described the long-sleeve version of the Gabba as "perfect", which explains the name "Castelli Women's Perfetto Softshell Jacket", yet they still set about improving on perfection. Castelli improved the water-repellent finish so it will keep you drier without affecting breathability. They have refined the fit, and laser cut the drain holes in the pockets. They have also totally redone the splash flap on the back to make it lie flatter and fit better. The reflective logo on the back keeps you visible.
