nope
trusted this "fits small" thing, bought 500TR GTX in 11.5 instead of my usual 11 (which I bought and wore from Adidas, Salomon, Saucony, Nike) and there's lots of room in the toebox both in front and on top of my toes, could easily fit another 4 or 5 of them in there
Also the lace pressure feels weird, it's not symmetrical

Figured this was made from a heavier version of the fabric Stoic Merino Comp 230 top/anorak are made of (which I have and love). Well, it's not :)
Instead of a smooth nylon outer face and cozy terry loops on the inside this has some honeycomb-structure reinforced fabric which is not smooth on either side and will certainly be less resistant to velcros. It's also thinner than you'd think just looking at the listed fabric weight.

So be warned if you feel like buying it on a whim, like I have ;) Of course I will find a use for it, it's just worth noting that the brief product description provided here can be misleading.

For some reason, the item description and most reviews do not mention a little thing about this jacket: it stretches (5% spandex).
Having owned another, unstretchable, Wind Pro jacket before, I didn't expect that, but it makes this one a whole lot better.
In other news, the fit is great and trim (82 kg/180cm, 40" chest, M is just right for wearing little to nothing underneath), deep color is pretty, it's thinner than some other Wind Pro jackets, but that only means you won't sweat as much should you decide to exert in it ;)

Suppose one doesn't have a tumble drier with heater.

What would work then to "activate" this treatment? Drying in the sun? Using a room heater fan in a small room to raise the temperature to 30C+?
Had poor luck with a previous version of this product (blue bottle), would like to know how to make my softshells repel water again.

Could anyone elaborate on the sizing/cut changes compared to the same jacket of 2 years ago? I have the M from back then and it's pretty damn tight and hard to fit anything warm underneath (thick fleece, Stoic luft synthetic jacket), whereas M from most other brands fits me just fine (180cm, a little under 80 kg, 40" chest).

dsilversto, I have these boots and I can say that in the thinner socks, I can feel the cable pressure on my instep very much once I cinch them all the way down, to the point of leaving bruises after just a couple hours of walking. The tongue is pretty thick but somehow it doesn't distribute the pressure all that evenly (either that, ot I have an abnormally bulging instep :)
Thick socks (the thickest I have, actually), however, mitigate this to a good extent.
And while on the subject of thick socks, I must also note that these boots feel noticeably narrower than other ones I have of the same size. My street shoe size is US 11, but I buy my boots in 11.5 to accomodate for the warm socks and size 11.5 Radikal Pros feel quite a bit smaller than my Salomon trekkers or winter boots (Salomon as well), but not *too small to wear* unless I put in thicker insoles.

So in short, you might wanna size up and wear some cushion inside these :)
