Rated4out of5byfromIt's a game changerI commute 40mi/ day in Minnesota, so being prepared for the weather is critical. This jacket is my go-to for temps between about 40-60. At 60 I'll wear a Nike Dri-Fit long sleeve and use this as a vest to keep my core warm. At 40, I wear a Nike Therma-Fit long sleeve and keep the sleeves on the jacket. I love love love how small and light weight this thing is. It takes up hardly any room, and does its job extremely well. I keep raingear in my panniers, but this does a good enough job for those sporadic light sprinkles. It could stand to have more reflective areas, but meh. Only thing I'm not a fan of I'd thr white collar; black seems like a more logical color. It gets scuzzy looking from sweat and stuff, but I tend to wash things like this minimally tho to extend life. All in all this thing is great and you will not be dissapointed.

Rated4out of5byfromI like mineI like the jacket. It works fine for me down into the low 40's with a long sleeved running shirt under it. I like that I can take off the sleeves and convert it to a gilet. I've only used it in sprinkles and it did a decent job. It is a little fussy getting the sleeves on and off, but I don't do it that often.

Rated5out of5byfromAbsolute NecessityI am a runner and frequently run during the last hour of sunlight. I also frequent Running/Bike paths that have heavy traffic. The visibility of this Jacket/Vest brings a high level of confidence in being scene by the bikes as they approach from either direction. The weight of the Jacket/Vest is excellent and surprisingly warm on a windy day with cooler temperatures.

Rated5out of5byfromThe best cycling jacket ever.My first use of this jacket was on a 40 degree morning. I ziped it up and was toasty warm and protected from the wind. It sealed around my neck and arms perfectly, no drafts. It is so light, I hardly notice that I am wearing a jacket. The jacket is exactly what I needed.
