Bought this jacket for my husband and was instantly jealous that it isn't made for women. Contacted Ornot peeps to ask what size I could buy for me. I normally wear a large in women and went for the small in the men's. Tested it this past Sunday with a 45-55 degree day that included a big cold descent in Colorado. It was awesome. I love how small it packs up so I could ditch it for the uphills and when the sun was out. I had the same issue as some other reviewers with the sleeve length - they are really long. I expected a little bit long since I am a gal, but they were super long. I will have the sleeves altered to make them perfect. If I had a wish list, I'd request this in navy blue and grey, a version especially for the gals and shorter sleeves.
One of the best jackets I've owned. It is cozy but breathable. I usually ride early in the mornings in 37+ degree (F) weather and this hits the spot. The fit is nice as well, it has that nice snug feel to it. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a solid winter jacket.
Took new Magic Shell Jacket on three winter rides in January in Massachusetts. Cold (30F), cold and rainy (33F), and warm and sunny but 20MPH+ winds (37F). Varied weight of my base layer to match conditions. Rides were 25 to 35 miles. Impressions: exceptional comfort, exceptional wind resistance (felt the cold temps but not the wind chill), exceptional breathability (no residual moisture inside the shell at the end of the ride). Side entry back pocket took some getting used to (and the zipper pull is teeny): but then realized that the pocket is essentially a stuff sack since it is not stitched to the jacket on the sides. With that eureka, figured out how to load: backup layer first, then backup hat, then food, then phone. Note on sizing: ended up with XL after ordering L to start based on guidelines.
