So I'm a HUGE fan of the castelli gabba line. I use it 9 month in a year in the Bay Area. The Gabba 3 is 95% perfect. Is there any other manufacturer using this very same fabric? (Gore Windstopper X-Lite)
My main problem with the gabba is the very long tail and the fact that in small it's still not form-fitting on me. Also I don't really dig the design. Is there anything else with this particular Gore fabric out there?

Just so you know, they do make an XS for the pro teams. I picked up an old Garmin-Cervelo one and the fit is far superior. I just blacked out the GARMIN and left the large é on the back seen as I have a Cervelo.
Seen as Castelli and Sportful are basically the same, maybe there's a Sportful option?

I have a Castelli Gabba and a Perfetto Light 2, both short-sleeve and much prefer the Perfetto. It's a slimmer fit (in small). The tail on the Perfetto light 2 is much better than the original and sits flush. By reference I'm 1.68M tall and weigh 60kg at the moment ad it fits great and when i was 56kg last summer it also fit great.

The Fiandre line from Sportful is largely the same, as Sportful owns Castelli. But I think you will find both the construction and fit very similar to Castelli.
