I love the quality and breathability of the garment
Great jacket. Packs down nice and small but good for chilly descents. I've been taking it with me on all my winter rides. I also like that there is a pocket and it fits a cell phone.
I've been curious about this jacket since only the men's version came out at the start of the pandemic. I gotta say, it lives up to the hype. Supremely stretchy in a way that makes me wish my regular wind jackets were, even tho I never wanted for that before encountering this. The added bit of warmth is great for days when I'm not sure how it'll be out there or more likely when leaving early in the morning and I know I'll warm up but don't really want to start cold anyways. Size guide recommendations were great! I would've assumed I'm a medium but the small is perfect.
Vancouver (BC) riding is tricky as the ride often starts off cool but can get quite warm midday. I've been searching (literally) for years for the perfect, packable but breeze blocking jersey. Somehow, it also doesn't create a heat tent and does a good job of moderating your temperature. The micro climate ticks all the boxes for shoulder season riding. I love that it scrunches up into it's own pocket and can fit into any jersey pocket no problem. I was in between sizes and couldn't decide between S and M so I got both. True enough to the chart, both fit. The material is a bit stretchy and there is some give. I opted for the M as my arms are a bit more thick and I wanted to be able to easily wear a long sleeve layer for colder riding. For any Canadians, I was charged duty so perhaps just commit to one size when you buy!
