5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 5"
Weight: 160 lbs
Size Purchased: XL

High quality. Fit is slim but no more so than other bike clothing. Actually I would say Gore Bike Wear runs a touch larger than Castelli. I have a 40" chest so I have to go with an XL, I hate tight under arms...but this size is pretty normal for me.

The AS (Active Shell) fabric feels slightly rubbery like an ultralight rain coat. There are patches of softer fabric under arms and back for breathability and stretch. This looks like it will work well in wettish weather but too much road spray would soak your back.

Easily fits into jersey pocket, but is slightly larger than the Sottile.

Very comfortable and looks great. However I expect synthetic insulation pieces to be a little warmer. The fabric strech panels loose alot of heat and let wind in. Put a shell over it and it is better but it lacks loft to be a true winter heater. Perhaps better for active pursuits but I dont see reaching for sythetic loft jacket for a workout?
