The jacket appear well made, and testing inside with a flashlight, the jacket really lights up brightly by reflecting light. However the sizing information shown is way off. With a 46" chest and 36" waist, I ordered an XL size, shown as appropriate for 46-48" chest and 34-36" waist. This XL jacket measures 60" across at the armpits and 49" at the waist. There is a waist drawstring but do you really want to look like the Michelin Man while riding? Disappointed in the sizing information provided, no chance to use the jacket, it will be going back.
I'm a daily commuter in Western Oregon so at least half of the time it's rainy, dark, and cold. I purchased this jacket on sale from BTD and it has been the best jacket I've ever owned. It's super reflective and I often get thumbs up from drivers (really!) and the blinky lights on the sleeves and rear apron make it pretty much impossible not to see me on the road. Additionally, the cuffs seal tight over my gloves and the front zipper seals around my neck to keep out the wet and drafts. On warmer days, I open the side vents for plenty of cooling. Honestly, I can't say one bad thing about this jacket.
First, it is a beautiful jacket - the ultra reflective map print looks amazing in person. Second, although not race-fit, it is cut a bit more slim-fitting than many comparable commuting jackets, but still has enough room for a heavy jersey. Third, the reflectiveness is existential. Cars clearly give me much more room when I wear this, AND the led lights are quite effective as well while still being unobtrusive in the day. Venting is well done. Pockets well done. Waterproofness seems very good. Construction is excellent. I am 5'6 140 lbs wearing a SMALL and the fit is perfect although arms would be too short if I were much taller.
Great jacket, worn it on an all day ride with intermittent rain. Had it on even when the sun was shining, open vents and cuffs provided plenty of ventilation. No issues with moisture soaking thru. Got lots of comments from others on how reflective the material is after dark.
Worn it while walking the dog in heavy downpours too.
