I got maybe to the end of my driveway , first drizzle then bawoosh. Did not even think of turning around and going back home. I kept riding. 2.3 hours later, i pulled into my driveway, covered in road salt and grime feeling good and amazingly happy, I never got cold even though I should have been freezing. The Gabba and the Super Nano a amazing combination. By the way I have the long sleeve version Blk with red zippers and have had it for a year. Best jersey I have ever owned.
Great testimonial. What were the temperature/wind conditions for the soggy spectacle?
I reproofed my Gabba jacket and Nanoflex warmers with tech wash last week before the start of our "winter". Pretty much as good as new.
Cool, but not uncomfortably so for the first 75 minutes. The Gabba fabric definitely blocked the wind better than the warmers did. Started getting a bit chilly at the 1:45 mark, but again that was mostly the wind coming through the arm warmers. Finished in the rain at about 2 hrs and felt good to get in the house.
So now I know the lower limits for this jersey for me. Next time I'd go in these conditions would probably add another baselayer, perhaps synthetic under the merino.
Fit was good for me with an XL: 5'11", 42 inch chest, 37ish waist this time of year...
BTW< Rapha winter cap was great even though the brim was soaked when I finished.
It is more of a barrier than insulation.
I broke out my windstop baselayer for the 1st time in years- used it under my gabba when temps were in the 40's.
I actually have the Vermarc version- I think it is Giordana G-shield. Black with custom logos. I look so cool and Quikstep-like when I wear it that I can hardly stand it.
i ordered one and i am waiting
the gabba is too expensive for me
