Rated5out of5byfromGreat job cutting the wind!This did a great job cutting the wind. Very comfortable--love the inside AND outside pockets. Deep enough that things don't fall out but not to big that you have to dive in to them to get things out. It would be nice to have a reflective element on the back for rides.

Rated5out of5byfromJacket for all occasionsI bought this jacket last year and still wear it almost every day when the weather is suitable. I actually bought a 2nd one for when this one wears out but I do regret that purchase since this one seems like it'll take years to wear out. For biking, when the weather is moderate, I can wear this jacket alone, and it is perfect. I don't get too hot under it as it breathes. it fits very well under my winter jacket when the weather gets colder. The fit is a clean, flattering look on me. The arms are a little long for me, but I like that when I'm biking. When I'm at home doing the dishes, it's kind of a pain, but it's not made for me to do the dishes in it.
