Awesome jacket! Comfortable, stylish, and completely waterproof as advertised. Yes, it has an athletic fit...it doesn't leave room for tons of layers underneath. It isn't a ski jacket, it's a rain jacket. It leaves room for a couple good layers without making you look like you're wearing a tent when you wear it around town. No pitzips, but it makes the jacket lighter and it breathes well enough for everything but the hardest cardio activities. Great buy and a great product!

When I bought this jacket I was extremely impressed with the quality and design. I couldn't believe that a softshell could be so waterproof and windproof, yet it seemed to be even more breathable than GORE-TEX. For this reason they didn't add pit zips, which I didn't like because even the most breathable softshells out there sometimes aren't vented enough when you're really working up a sweat. The other drawbacks are the pockets are small and few, and the hood was too small to wear over a helmet...fortunately it can zip off. If you don't need lots of pockets and don't wear a helmet, BUY THIS JACKET! Great value!

Pros: The quality and performance of this jacket is indisputable. Built to last, and you could wear it in a hurricane and stay warm and dry. Great fit, great style, and some useful ideas like the off-center zipper and stretch back panel.
Con: The 'fit and finish' of the jacket is pretty weak for something that retails for over $500. You do get what you pay for, since the jacket is a great weather barrier...unfortunately, there isn't much else to it. Few pockets, no soft collar around the neck, and the hood is small for most helmets.
Looking for a great performance shell? Buy the sidewinder, but buy it on sale.

This was my first Merino wool product so I wasn't sure what to expect, but I still can't get over how much of a difference a t-shirt can make in comfort level. These shirts can be worn in such a variety of conditions that they're worth every penny. Lightweight, comfortable, and definitely live up to the hype. *If you want an athletic fit, buy a size smaller than you'd expect.
