A really great jacket/jersey

PostedJune 6, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
This jacket/jersey fits the gap between a jacket and a jersey. I just bought it and have been using it for a couple of weeks now in Sweden. The temperature has been about 7-15 degrees celcius and this jacket really feels good. It protect you from the wind and feels light. I've also been riding hard with a backpack without geting sweaty and wet.
If you have a need for this kind of functions, this is a "GO".

Pros: Good quality, Lightweight, Looks great
Got this in the last sale making it much more affordable. It is a very thin piece of kit but still keeps you very warm. Wouldn't where it on the coldest days but still very happy. As I think I will be able to wear it all year round. Just with or without a base layer.
The zipped vents are really good and allow cooling to where its needed.

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
Cons: Expensive
Very good looking jersey. Very comfortable. No breathability issues. I am ~37.5" chest, 5' 10" and bought the large. It's slim but not figure hugging. If you want that look then a medium would be better suited. Arm length is perfect. Great vents.
White parts are not windproof (on the white/black jersey). That is fine and helps with the breathability, but after wearing it recently over an Endura Baa Baa LS base layer in 0 degrees celcius, I found the windchill on my arms from the non-windproof (i.e. white) areas to be too great. I would therefore recommend this as something to be used down to about 5 degrees with a base layer. Lower than that and the cold becomes excessive; but of course you could add a second base layer or arm warmers (which I intend to do).

Exceeded expectations

PostedNovember 8, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
I wanted a windproof shell and this jacket has proven really excellent. It's comfortable and very lightweight. Also surprisingly warm. I'm still experimenting with required layers, but a base layer and thin s/s jersey under is PLENTY for 4 degree riding (I feel the cold and normally need several layers). The zips are all easy to use one-handed which is helpful. Recommended.

Impressively comfortable wind proof jacket

PostedJune 10, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
Cons: Expensive
Asthestically the jacket looks great. The red and black was my choice of colour. It does offer some reflective ability but definitely secondary. The windproofness is excellent. Although not sold as such I found the jacket offered a very respectable level of waterproofing.
The downside is hard to ignore and that is......price. It is very expensive however it can double up as a jersey as a way to justify the cost!
