apart from Castelli, who else makes a jersey like the Gabba? after rding in this morning in the drizzle be nice to have something between goretex and race jersey. ie close fitting, warm, drizzle proof.

I was told by the Chapeau chap that they were making something this year that's a lot like it (but better, though he would say that, wouldn't he?!). Apparently they'll have em on site in October. I fear they'll be black again. Wish someone would make nice winter kit in visible colours.

There's nothing quite like the Gabba. That's why you get to MSR and see the non-Castelli riders wearing them with the logos covered.

The reason so many Pro's use the gabba is because it is so good. A cheap 'gabba' wont be.

not really about cost, but fit. Different companies make jerseys in different arm and body lengths, chest sizes etc.

So really just wondering if anyone else makes something similar if the Gabba isn't quite right. That most Pros use it suggests a lack of alternatives, but i note that Quickstep have a different Black Jersey.

Just struck me that if someone makes a jersey that effective, someone else would try and copy/ripoff?
