It has been pretty chilly the last several weeks in Houston so Iit has been getting good use. It keeps you warm and protects you from the wind. So far I haven't overheated in it yet. The zipper goes all the way to the neck but at an angle to keep the zipper from rubbing on your adams apple. Very nice surprise. Pockets work great and keeps the wind out.
This seems like it is going to work for moderate winter rides. I suggest ordering one size up. I ordered large, which is my usual size, and it fit like medium to me. I returned it and reordered an XL. Unfortunately the zipper was flawed and difficult to use, but it fit as I expected from a large. Getting a replacement was easy enough, except UPS lost it in the ether for several days. No fault of the supplier.
I received the jacket today and didn't think it would be what I wanted. The color is beautiful and the jacket keeps you warm. The fit is very comfortable and the jacket zips up the neck to keep the wind out. I would recommend the jacket to family and friends.
Me gusto mucho para el frío en New York te mantiene el cuerpo muy caliente.
As a mostly lean 300lb cyclist, I am firmly in the "Clydesdale rider" realm of the sport.I normally wear a 2x, sometimes a 3x shirt and I was excited to see that this jacket was available in 3x. When I tried it on, my arms barely fit into the sleves and the zipper was about 3 inches away from connecting at the belly, and 6 inches away at the chest. This fit me more like it should be labled a XL.Unfortunately, I had to return it and am back to looking for a solution.Aside from the sizing issue, it did seem like a wonderful jacket.
