Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Excellent
Used this jacket in -2c and didn't feel any cold or wind through it whatsoever, I used it with one base layer and a summer jersey. I am 5'11" and 38" chest, I bought a medium which is quite snug around the back when riding but I wouldn't want bigger as it would be too long on the back and arms.

I bought two these,one for cycling, one for running.
Very light and small but both let in rain in mild showers after
fifteen minutes when new. Tried proofing them with
no success either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous ideal ultra lightweight breathable
Been out for my first ride with this jacket and it seems pretty much perfect for what i wanted. Wearing just a base layer underneath i never got too hot or sweaty which was my main concern when buying a jacket. When the weather turned against us (sleet/rain) i put on a jersey inbetween this jacket and my baselayer and still didn't get too hot or sweaty. The rain and sleet was pretty heavy at points and it was also quite a windy day but this jacket kept it all at bay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Very Light, Very Bright
This is my first windproof and did plenty of research to make sure I didn't end up with a 'boil in the bag', and this jacket was highly recommended by many people who know much more than I do. I was delighted to see it at such a great price. I went for flouro so I can be seen, and my goodness it is bright!
It's very light, compacts down to the size of a tennis ball and keeps the wind out (and is surprisingly rather waterproof) without being completely unbreathable.
Sizing is also sensible (ie if you're small, order a small and it will fit!)
Would highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Super veste, légère et étanche
J'ai cette veste depuis un mois, et je l'utilise avec un polaire en-dessous, jusqu'à 0°C pour l'instant. Elle remplit parfaitement son rôle : étanche et coupe totalement du vent.
Elle est également minuscule une fois replié.
Je ne regrette absolument pas cet achat !!
Chaudement recommandé !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Excellent light watertight jacket
This is my first proper cycling jacket, used over the last 2 months in the British Autumn, it has been excellent in heavy rain on my road bike, and milder days not sticky at all. I have also used in through the woods on my MTB and the ultra-thin material is resistant to tears. A fantastic buy at this price! The yellow is bright florescent yellow (not as in the picture), and to keep the weight and size down (comes with a little mesh sack for storage on the bike) it does not have any pockets. I'm thinking of getting another one now!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous fit is rather loose - but tat can be good when layering up. One of the cuff elastics snapped after a week. Shame, cuz i quite like the jacket.
