Familiarity: I've used it several times

This jacket packs down tiny! It's truly minimal, with zero pockets and vents. The packing size also means it's quite thin, so I don't expect it to survive more than two seasons of commuting in Seattle. One downside to this jacket is that the tail bib is a little short - it goes over the belt line by an inch or two depending on riding position. If you want a generous tail bib look elsewhere.

As others have noted, order 1 size up from your normal fit and you'll get a good snug fit. I'm 6'-0, 180lb and I got the Large.

Not to spec, Zipp refuses to warranty.

I bought the 20/27.2/330 beyond black model - the top of the line alloy seat post from Zipp. It’s about as expensive as alloy seatposts can get. I installed it on my 2018 Orbea Orca M20 using a torque wrench at specified numbers. The seatpost started slipping within 10 minutes of riding. I added Finishline fiber paste and reinstalled it to spec. It still slipped. So I tried a different seat post at the same torque spec and it worked perfectly. So, I took the Zipp seatpost to my LBS and they measured it with a Parks digital caliper. Turns out the Zipp seatpost measured at 27.14, which is the likely culprit for slippage.

I contacted Zipp with photos showing the not-to-spec documentation. They said I should go deal with the bike shop, or wherever I bought it. I asked to mail them the seatpost, along with the proof of purchase. They told me to go deal with the retailer. Zipp refuses to take the seatpost back for evaluation and give me a replacement or refund. I’m done with this company and I hope you take this as a word of warning.

I use these for light day hiking and cycling around Seattle in the rain. After one year the right shoe soaks through after 20 minutes in the rain. Beyond that problem they fit well and are very light.
