A good looking, well made jacket.

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
A very good looking, well made jacket. The sizing was slightly on the large side but the makers do say it is not snug fitting. I haven't worn it on a ride yet; the weather is still too warm for that! But, I have no doubts about it doing what it says; i.e. being wind and shower repellent. The jacket looks good, feels good and appears to be very well made and is being sold at a very competitive price. What more could one ask for?

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable
Cons: color doesn't match the picture!
Looks good, feels nice when put on, good quality.
Didn't have a chance to test it (it's summer now :) yet.
The only con I've dealt with is color !
It doesn't match the picture totally.
I had doubts about it (I've ordered an olive one), so I decided to ask staff-member before buying. The answer that I get was - yes, it will match the picture.
Yesterday I get my jacket and the color was neither olive nor yellow but...acid green ! :D Amazing ! :D
I'm not affraid of wearing it, but if you decide to buy this jacket - be cautious about the color issue :) I'm not sure how does it look in "blue" color :))))

it doesn't do what it says on the tin

PostedJuly 10, 2014
No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Comfortable, Lightweight
Cons: Poor quality, not breathable
if you're intending to sweat DO NOT buy this product, it claims to be breathable but it most definately isn't. I can work up a sweat walking the dog in this top. the sweat is retained on the inner shell, I can't use it for cycling. It is wind resistant though but once the sweat has accumulated on the inner shell I get very cold very quickly. I paid £70 for it winter 2013/14, no surprise it's down to £30 now.

Could be better

PostedMarch 29, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great
Cons: can get a bit sweaty
This jacket is warm but if you wear it over a long distance, you will swear and then get a bit chilly as the back and arms are breathable
Looks very nice though and feels good quality
Maybe I just haven't got my layering correct yet?

Neither breathable nor wind proof

PostedFebruary 25, 2013
No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Comfortable, Looks great
This jacket looked like good value as described and feels very comfortable when worn. Unfortunately that's about the best of it as in real world conditions it falls far short of the claims.
The wind proofing on the front is acceptable but too much air forces its way in under the armpits in both upright and racing positions. The lack of overall breath ability makes this worse as it means that you will soon be sweaty and cooling down rather too much.
It's not a patch on similar Gore jackets and jerseys I have and represents poor value, best avoided
