"I have only had this jacket for a few weeks, but I'm well impressed. I bought it to get me through my Melbourne (Australia) winter commute to work.
It's VERY warm - you really only need a base layer underneath.
The zipped side air vents have been really handy - I've actually been leaving them unzipped most of the time.
It's comfortable - I especially like the soft-fleece collar.
And it stores well too, easily rolled up stuffed in my bag.
I also went for the red for maximum visibility.
I'm a lean 6'1" and ordered a Medium - which fits great around my body, although it tends to creep up my back a little when I'm riding.
So if you're over six foot, perhaps look at getting a Large, so long as you can fill it out.
Overall, money really well spent."
Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, Adjustable, Lightweight

Sizing Inquiry

Buying from the US, I want to make sure the size I buy is correct. I have a Gore Bike Wear Xenon 2.0 SO Jacket in an XL size that fits like a glove, however, the Gore Path Jacket I have in an XL is extremely loose. The size chart for the chest for gore jackets indicates a 40″ - 411⁄2″ is a XLarge. I'm 6'2, 42L Chest, 180lbs and would prefer a form fitting size rather than loose. I imagine I should buy a Large, but paying a 50 dollar return charge is a bit ridiculous internationally. Does anyone have any advice before I buy something?
Hi there. I'm around 6'2" but only about 150 pounds, so I bought a Medium for a nice body fit.
It fits just as I wanted in the body, but I have noticed it creep up a little around the back when I'm riding. If it were an inch longer in the torso, it'd be perfect.
The arm length is completely fine though.
Hope that helps!
