Castelli Gabba 3 Jersey

Gabba the great
Award WiNNER

One of the most highly rated products at Chain Reaction Cycles, Castelli’s Gabba 3 has a 97% recommendation rate, with only a single reviewer refusing to award the full five stars.

Unfortunately, the one blemish on its perfect score is unexplained by reviewer OrbeaM20, who awarded four stars and described the Gabba as an “excellent product”.

This is the third generation of the garment which established its own category – the ‘rain jersey’. Castelli has tweaked its fit and improved the drop tail and pockets over time, but it remains a winning formula of warmth, breathability, and water repellence.

K30IIs described the Gabba as, “the best top I have ever had by far,” and despite the slightly less-than-perfect record, we expect you’ll feel the same once you try it.

“Bought one as a bit of an experiment (is it as good as they say?) And I have not been disappointed. Wear it with nanoflex armwarmers in the cold or rain and it’s every bit as good as expensive rain jackets. Great feel and great fit combined with a good look. Cannot fault it.” – MnormallyXXLcastelli

HIGHLY COMMENDED
Castelli Perfetto Light 2

Castelli’s Perfetto Light 2 is a hybrid between the Gabba and the Perfetto vest. It uses a nano-light fabric – the same fabric as their Nano Flex tights, but without the brushed fleece inside – to add breathability across your back, making warm-day rides a breeze. But what most reviewers love is the Windstopper fabric on the front which keeps out excessive chill. It’s an innovative design that solves the problem of what to wear during those awkward not-too-cold, not-too-hot days and has been a revelation for many riders.
