CASTELLI SQUADRA LONG VEST
Weight 60g (size S) Sizes XS-XXXL Colours Fluoro yellow, black, white
The Squadra Long is a minimalist gilet that doesn’t cost the earth, especially when you consider it’s from high-end brand Castelli. It’s light and packs into a jersey pocket, making it perfect for chilly descents and keeping out the autumn chills thanks to its windproof qualities. While it’s not completely waterproof the long tail helps protect against road spray. As a lightweight option it doesn’t offer the insulation of some or breathe as well as more expensive vests but thanks to a mesh panel you’re never overly sweaty. As an emergency windproof or a bright commuting addition, the Squadra is a good choice.
