"Needed a small lightweight and packable jacket so decided on Sportful (I like Italian cycling kit). Should have known that it comes up a size smaller for me as I already own some race tops from the same brand. Wore for the first time at the start of an early morning ride over a short top, just to keep the chill off, as weather was looking good for the day and it worked brilliantly at keeping the chilly wind at bay. Not the cheapest and not the dearest out there but would totally recommend but not for the fuller figure."
Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, High Quality, Lightweight, Good Fit

"First serious jacket bought and spent much time looking at all makes.Chose this due to spec and cost.Pleased with purchase,Good pockets,warm and wind and rain proof.Only thing that lets it down is it could be longer in the back especially when on the drops.For the cost it is a good value jacket."
