Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Slim fit for narrow waisted people
Great jkt. Note that it really is competition fit so if you have 44" chest XXL won't fit and serious pity XXXL does not seem to be available. If your body fits then this is a superb choice. My other Shimano L/S windflex is an XTR jkt in XXL which fits brilliantly. Wish you guys would stock more Shimano clothing it is tremendous. Having said that so is my collection of endura.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous supremely breathable high quality cosy jacket
Lightweight high quality jacket which regulates temperature very well. So much so even wearable at 18C as well as in winter! Mainly designed for autumn and winter though. Fabric has some waterproofness to it at 2000mm but leaks at stitches. It is super breathable though which is the best I had so far. Narrow competition fit with great flexibility.
I have goretex jacket but this one is better in many aspects. If I have to compare to hi spec gore tex (Gore brand) shimano Gold one is:
stays where it should
feels natural and cosy
Has better temperature regulation, useable at a wider temperature range without "boil in the bag" feeling.
leaks at stitches (not sure if I can seal these)
Everything about it says quality. For 90 quid at the moment it is well worth getting.
(Do not forget it is quite narrow (competition) fit on purpose, order based on that)
