Perfect Wind/Light Rain Riding Shell
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
After riding a few times, I can say that this jacket does its job well, especially for the price. It kept a healthy fall wind (cloudy, mid-50 temp) off of my body and kept me dry through a few light showers. Easily packs into my saddle bag alongside a few other essentials. The sizing is certainly small when compared with US charts - pay exclusive attention to the measurements. I am 6'4" / 215 lbs and typically wear a Large. The 3XL fits me perfectly.
Small in size but mighty in performance
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Jacket is great, but like all the other reviews, this runs small... very small. If you’re fit like a Tour de France rider, order one size up. If you look like the rest of us, go 2 sizes up. But the jacket is fantastic, folds down to fit perfectly into your back pocket so that you can be prepared for anything that hits you on the ride, wether that be a cold wind, or light rain, this jacket is ideal for everyone.
WAAAAAAAAY TOO SMALL
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
I am 5’10” tall and 180 lbs. I ordered a large and I thought it was a joke. It was like a youth medium. Go up at least three sizes.
