Really rather good

I wore this riding the first two stages of the 2014 Tour de France in Yorkshire, and again for a 100-miler through the surrey hills a week later. It's performed brilliantly. I wanted something that was snug so it wouldn't flap on descents, was water and windproof to cover mixed weather and could be stowed in a back pocket if needed. I bought it in an M size - I'm 72kgs and 1.78 tall (or 11stone 5 and 5'10" in old money). It fit well for a racing cut. The weather in Yorkshire started chilly (low double digits), overcast and forecast for showers, but brightened to warm sunshine up on day two (Holme Moss was positively toasty), the Surrey ride was more or less the same experience. Starting low teens and rising into the 20s. The Fawesome performed well. Keeping off the showers and the wind. On descents there was still a little flapping on the shoulder over 50kph, although that might be because it had been pulled up at the back to allow access my jersey pockets. In the heat it needed unzipping on longer climbs, but then so did my jersey at some points. It also fits in a jersey pocket. Not leaving a lot of room for other things, but still comfortably enough.

All about the Gabba

This is a great piece of kit perfect for tempo work in winter/autumn conditions. I had been looking for a gillet for a while and this ticked all the boxes, slim race fit, breathable, windprooof, waterproof. Made from Castelli's Gabba material and part of the Rosso Corsa range you know it's going to be quality kit and it doesnt dissapoint.
