PROGRESSIVE, DETACHABLE SLEEVES
For the new Convertible, Castelli has reinvented the concept of a jacket with detachable sleeves. The result is impressive. The sleeve zip sits just above the elbow and runs along 3/4 of the circumference of the sleeve. With sleeves, the Convertible is basically a long-sleeved version of the Perfetto RoS. Without sleeves, it transforms into a true Gabba and can be combined with Nano Flex 3G arm warmers if needed. The sleeve zips aren't visible from the outside and they're also concealed on the inside for superior comfort.
IMPROVED RAINPROOFING As of winter 2019, the Convertible is officially part of the RoS collection, which stands for 'Rain or Shine'. For you, this means the great breathability and fit you love in the Perfetto combined with a significant improvement in rainproofing thanks to taped shoulder seams.
UPDATED MATERIAL. Castelli has also been progressive in its choice of materials. The front of the jacket is lightly padded, while the back is made of lighter, more elasticated material. A jacket that can turn into a vest is actually quite useless, but a jacket that can turn into a Gabba is pretty amazing!

I've been waiting for a product like the Perfetto Ros Convertible for a long time. It's wind- and waterproof and you can remove the sleeves. They really thought of everything when designing this jacket.Florian Nowak - Keller Sports Pro
