Rated4out of5byRessleBrewfromNice value, warmth despite thin fabricI picked this up as a last minute addition to my gear for a 24 hour mountain bike race when I saw it was on clearance. When I received it, I was a little worried as it felt very thin and did not appear to be made out of a fabric that would repel water. I wore it for a 7pm ride in February over a long sleeve cotton shirt and a t-shirt and found myself soaked in sweat by the end of the ride. This kept me warm, but my shirts were soaked after the ride so I ended up not wearing it for the race. The reflective features are nice for night rides. The rear pocket was unusable to me unless I got off my bike and took a glove off...since that is the only pocket, I think that's somewhat of a disadvantage. It fits into a small pocket in a hydration pack when you want to remove it!
