The Fawesome is the kind of rare breed vest you only get when cycling apparel gurus like Castelli partner up with a pro tour team like Garmin-Cervelo. The Fawesome Vest delivers a high-performance blend of wind and water protection in a lightweight, aerodynamic package. One of Castelli's primary goals to accomplish in the Fawesome Vest was a fit that optimizes aerodynamic properties, and it's safe to say they've done just that. The Fawesome is aero to the point that it's nearly as aero as the Castelli Aero Race Jersey.
To keep Garmin riders sharp and dexterous in the fast-moving crowded peloton, the Fawesome employs windproof and water-resistant Windstopper® X-Lite Plus fabric on the front and shoulders to keep the wind at bay. Additional features include a tall collar to shield out the wind when descending and Velocity fabric on the back of the vest to keep a constant and controlled temperature. A splash guard is strategically placed at the lower-back to protect from wheel spray, while rear reflective tabs and trim at hem provide 360-degrees of visibility in low-light conditions. Weighing in at a scant 149 grams, the minimalist vest can be easily stuffed into a jersey pocket or packed into a bag. Isn't that Fawesome?!?!

1. On the bike, your Castelli jersey should fit close to the skin. 2. Off the bike, your Castelli jersey might feel tight across the chest and a little short in front. 3. Castelli ProSecco treatment helps perspiration evaporate quickly to keep you cooler and drier. 4. Castelli jerseys are designed with the sleeves articulated forward for maximum aerodynamic performance. 5. Bibshorts should fit tightly enough to support critical leg muscles through compression without inhibiting movement and constricting blood flow.
I first wore this vest on a 50 K bike race that started out in 30 degree weather. It kept me warm during the first 25 K of hard riding but wasn't hot. It has that Italian fit and I bought and XL. I'm usually in a large. The XL was snug but I consider that a plus for cycling. I'll keep wearing his all fall and next spring because it seems to be the right combination of wind resistance and warms for cycling.
