Our review 

Castelli 1,2,3 Radiation Jacket via ProbikeKit
We tested the jacket a sunny but windy day and 7 degrees Celsius. To do this, we have gone a distance of 10 km for a route that combined city and country, so we could tell the sensations in both types of places.

As you can see from the pictures, I'm not a "slim" guy ... size we have used is the XL, so the jacket is fitted for my "slim" body, although this has not been a problem and the jacket fits perfectly and comfortably in the shape of your body.

The truth is that the finished jacket are high quality, and yes, I know, is a jacket with a slightly higher price, but we think that the Castelli's products are of the highest quality we can find in the market.

During our route got along just a T-shirt and the Castelli jacket, we have not removed the hat and sleeves, it has not been necessary. And the feelings have been surprising, no cold! The snap-in inserts Radiation cause heat your body does not go outside and keeps you warm. The combination of Wind Stopper fabric and Radiation snap-in is one of the best combinations to keep you warm throughout the route.

About Castelli

Castelli traces its roots back to 1876 and a fine tailor, Vittore Gianni, in the heart of Milan. Through the years, Vittore Gianni clothed AC Milan, Juventus, and the Milan Ballet. The first cycling clothing was made in the 1910s for the five-time Giro champion Alfredo Binda. Maurizio Castelli was born in 1948, and grew up following the races of Fausto Coppi, a close friend with Maurizio’s father who was then owner of Vittore Gianni. Coppi always wore Vittore Gianni clothing, including the first silk skin suits designed for Fausto’s time trials. That famous photo of Coppi and Bartali sharing a water bottle while climbing the Col d’Izoard? Yep, both are wearing our jerseys.  
After a brief but promising cycling career, Maurizio created his eponymous brand in 1974 and a series of firsts would follow: the first Lycra shorts used in racing and sold to the public, the first colored shorts, the first sublimation printed jerseys, the first synthetic winter clothing, the first use of windproof membranes, the first hydrophilic fabric treatments, the first anatomic seatpad, the lightest jersey ever produced, and the most aerodynamic jersey ever produced. Maurizio’s vision was to be at the forefront of technology, performance and design. Maurizio Castelli died in 1995 while cycling up the Cipressa climb, the next-to-last hill in the Milano-San Remo course.

Today, Castelli is dedicated to continuing Maurizio’s dream: to create the most innovative clothing for the cyclist seeking maximum performance.
