"Did not test the warmth of these gloves because I knew as soon as I put them on they were too thick and cumbersome to allow for easy operation of the levers. These gloves have no advantage over ski gloves which might be warmer."
Cons: Expensive, Bulky

"There are three things a cyclist requires from this type of jacket. Waterproofing, Visibility and the ability to be stowed in a back pocket. This jacket would be better in a high vis colour and is a little tight at the bottom. However the fit in every other way is excellent and it can be rolled up very small to fit in a back pocket. It also appears to be waterproof if a little sweaty inside."
Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, Lightweight
Cons: Limited Color Choices, colour not high vis

Size

Hi, I'm not sure whether a 10 0r 12 would fit me better:
I'm 170cm tall, 84cm in chest, 76cm in waist and 91cm on the hips. Could you please advice? Thanks.
This jacket is true to size. I am a size 8 which worked well with plenty of streatch in the arms. However it fits neatly over the hips and is a bit shorter than I would wish.

What outside temp range would you say this is suited for? I'm looking to wear it now and through summer when raining or chilly. Thanks.

This jacket could be used in all temperatures depending on what you were underneath
