The big difference in the variance of experience with moisture building up in these jackets probably comes down to how much the individual perspires. I, thankfully, don't sweat much, but I (and i'm sure we all know somebody) know people who sweat a lot, regardless of it being warm or cold. Also, it could depend on the humidity of your local climate. if you live in Arizona, it's probably pretty damn dry there all the time, you likely will be as well. If you live in the rainforest, sure as hell, you're going to be wet.
just my two cents.
Yes. This is probably the reason. I think I sweat a lot. AND while 87% humidity and 50 fahrenheit doesn't seems to be much, it might make some difference in the sleeves when the temperature rises inside. Or it doesn't matter?
Which confirms my point that Castelli seems to have a lack of design knowledge that is inherent in many of their products. I did not know about Gore brand separation, but would imagine that they still retain some knowledge of how to, for example, properly bond a seam as Castelli has not.
Castelli focus on fashion rather than functionality. I try to like their products but they disappoint every time. I broke up with Castelli years ago. They lure you with European fashion.
I beg to disagree. In my experience the rosso corsa line garments are very well thought out and have OK quality. What I don't like about castelli is the design. It falls short compared to rapha / assos (although they got a bit better).
On the other hand their cheap stuff might lack some details, longevity, but hey I bought their nanoflex bibshorts on sale for $90 and it's amazing for the price.
