Before this vest, I had a cheap vest that was not too dissimilar from a garbage bag. It didn't fit well, didn't breathe well, and it looked like trash... pun intended. This vest is a game changer, it is hands down some of the nicest kit I've had the pleasure of wearing. It's the opposite of everything above. If you're on the fence about whether this is worth the money, I hope this review helps convince you.
Does what it should. Looks great. Fits great. Size up if your close on size. Definitely recommend.
It fits like a glove. Perfect
I've used this from 37-60 degrees. It's been really great for days when the weather changes or starting in the cool morning before it warms up. It is easy to stash when not needed. The zippers are a bit bigger, which are really nice when wearing gloves. The color is fantastic for visibility when on the road. The two way zip allows access to back jersey pockets, but on a long ride (when eating a lot) I'd probably pick something with built-in pockets. I wore this on a 135 mile gravel ride and that was my only complaint (If I had a top tube feed bag I would have been happy). That being said, if it had pockets it wouldn't be so packable. In this case, I had planned to use it only in the morning, but it never warmed up the whole day, and I was really grateful I wore it.
