This a perfect glove down to roughly 45 degrees or so, the first few miles might be a bit chilly but once you get warmed up they are awesome and they breathe exceptionally well and have an excellent fit. I wear a large in everything and wear a large in these. I know some people like to wear a second glove under their gloves for warmth but I don't think I could fit another glove under these. Would definetely purchase these again for Fall/Spring riding.

Purchased these and Pearl's PRO version and shortly returned the PRO version. For the price these are awesome, fit just right and just tight enough while keeping the chill off your toes. You can use these to about 45 or so but no colder for me. When it gets really cold in the low 30's I will use these and a full boot cover to fight the chill, awesome!! Would definetely purchase again.

Overall great quality bibs and I would have kept them for sure if they would have fit. They are a super skinny fit. I have several bibs from different brands and wear Large is all of them, but couldn't even get the Large on, had to send back. Also the inseam is marked at 9" but they are much longer than other bibs I have that have with an 11" inseam.

Overall I have three bibs from different manufactuers, this is my least favorite only because the chamois seems to be the thinest and least comfortable. Other than the chamois I like them alot. They fit good, a bit on the small side but the material is great on hot days. I will only wear this bib if I'm riding 20 miles or less and thats not often.

Its a great soft shell but not really a jacket. The description says light insulation and its classified as a jacket. I would definetely consider this more of a coat. When I tried it on my wife said I looked like the kid from the Christmas story. Its a bulkly super warm thick coat like the kind you wore in grade school. Not really what I was looking for, I actually wanted a thin soft shell jacket.

A great jacket, just not what I expected. I had an old Columbia fleece jacket that I loved but was getting old and neeeded to be replaced. I was hoping this jacket would be the new version of my old one...not even close. This jacket is super heavy duty fleece, extremely dense and would probably take some time to break in. I only wore it for a few minutes and already began to sweat, great fit and great jacket for the winter but I wanted something I could wear in the spring and fall as well. Also, it seemed to have more of a slim fit cut than a roomy fleece I am used to.

Super nice jacket, Columbia did a great job with this jacket. Overall it fit great, very lightweight, and definetely breathable. The desciption of the jacket lead me to beleive it was more heavy duty than it actually was, it was the one of the lightest jackets I've ever warn (probably best for a fall or spring rain) and during a snow storm here in the Utah it did extremely well keeping out the moisture but I could feel the wind blow right through. I guess that's what you get with a breathable jacket. My biggest complaint was on the sleeve length. I generally wear between a L and XL, the XL seemed to fit better, I'm 5'8" 200 LB's, but the sleeve length on the XL was rediculous, super long. Had to return it for something that would fit right. Also, the burnt orange wasn't quite as burnt as I had hoped, it looked more like crossing guard orange than burnt orange.

For the money this is a great all around jacket. It gets cold in Utah and this jacket did a great job for warmth, water resistant in the snow and was fairly breathable. My only issue was with the size. I'm 5'8" and 200 LB's and wear either a L or XL, the large was probably the better fit for me but I had a hard time getting it on over long sleeve dress shirts so I kept the XL. The sleeves on the XL turned out to be way to long and had to return it.

I'm 5'8" and 200 LB's, I generally wear between a L and XL. I purchased an XL in deep water blue and it might be the best hoodie I've ever purchased. I thought the XL was true to size. Its just roomy enough overall (I hate the slim fit) and the sleeves aren't rediculously long like some of the XL's out there. I haven't washed it yet and have some concerns about shrinkage but my wife said she would wash it in cold and hang dry. I just might buy ever color in this hoodie!

I usually wear between a L and XL, after reading other reviews I decided on the L. Overall it fit good, it was a bit long in length and the sleeves, which probably would have been taken care in the washer and dryer it if I had kept it. I would have given it 5 stars but after wearing it for an hour I promptly put it back in the box and returned it to Backcountry. The giant logo on the back makes your back sweat like crazy!
