DanL wrote a review of Giordana FormaRed Carbon Lightweight Men's Jacket on September 14, 2014
Haven't ridden it yet!!! Too warm, thankfully.
But this thing looks so good I thought I'd put up a quick post as a heads up. Description: On red model, the wind-proof stuff is black, and red panels at front are wind proof. Red panels under arms and at arm-pits are jersey. Material is all light weight w/little or no insulation. Soft jersy panels are like a standard light to mid-weight spring/fall jersey. Fabric weight identical to my gore xenon softshell jersey (both jersey and wind proof fabrics), critical diff being a lot more wind proof coverage on Giordana...just put a nice base under any wind proof breathable & you're golden. My guess for temp range: s/b high 50's (if not 60) to poss mid/low-30's w/right base. 6'3" 44" chest & 2xl seems fine (arm pits notwithstanding)--room for a mid-base even w/my fat old-man belly. Arm pits dont seem to affected by base. WIndtex is a lot stretchier than gore windstopper.
con: stitching qual is a bit disappointing for price, same as my old siverline jersey, but seems OK. Fits fantastic, but grabs at armpits except in only one narrow on-bike position--but s/b be just fine & adding base doesn't seem to exacerbate prob.
pro: winter gear is all about the panel placement--panels appear perfectly placed to maximize temp range (note how nobody on the phone has ever actually put their hand on the garment so u can ask just which panels are which).
Pairs well w/ my gore xenon soft shell jersey (w/winstopper) jersey. Weight/insulation of both wind proof panels as well as jersey material is identical, That jersey has smaller panels so range is higher. See my review. On colder side, should transition well to castelli Motorolo which has same windproof coverage pattern, only A LOT more fleece behind wind proof & a bit more thickness to soft/jersy panels.
will try and post after ive ridden it...maybe at beginning of summer after fall/ spring is done
