Giessegi Cauberg jacket review

We've tested the Giessegi Cauberg jacket, a comfortable warm water-resistant cycling jacket. Its waterproofing has withstood numerous wash cycles too

Cycling Weekly Verdict

The Giessegi Cauberg jacket is a really nice water-resistant jacket with neat customisation options. However the lack of bum flap is disappointing and the sizing a little odd.

The Gieseggi Cauberg jacket is a lightweight water and wind resistant jacket/jersey in the mould of Castelli’s Gabba. Its ninja-black colour scheme is relieved by a wide red waistband, the GSG logo across the chest and reflective banding on the tops of the three rear pockets.

The Cauberg’s insulation and windproofing are great for winter riding. With a short-sleeved baselayer underneath, it works well in milder conditions. Swap in a long sleeved baselayer and it’s good down to about zero.
