I wanted to wait on writing a review for this jacket until I could put it through the test of wearing it on a cold, rainy day. It did not disappoint. Water beaded up on the surface and even though I perspire a great deal, the jacket never got damp or clammy on the interior. In my opinion, this jacket will keep you plenty toasty with the right layering underneath in temps as low as the upper 30s. It's absolutely perfect for rides (and runs) when it's in the 40s & 50s with just a lightweight base layer. Best cycling jacket I've owned by far and, as a former midwest winter bike commuter, I've had a few.
The jacket fits comfortably and true to size (XL). It feels great over the Ornot thermal jersey or a tech tee. The fit on bike clings to the right spots and not the wrong, while off bike the jacket is almost passable as “normal” clothing, I plan to pair it with your Mission short for shorter gravel shreds. I’d be excited to see more bright colored options, maybe some added reflexivity. I’m often leaving when it’s dark in the winter so increased visibility is very desirable. One thing I absolutely would not change is the two way zip, it’s one of my favorite features both pragmatically, and yeah, **** it, for style points. I love a lot of things about Ornot, keep it up!!
Pretty good. It needs more pockets
