Very nice layer for fall mountainbiking when the sun…

Rating: rated 3.5 of 5 stars
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $160 I wanted a certain color.

Summary

Very nice layer for fall mountainbiking when the sun goes down and the temp drops. nice by itself when your out and about. Not good for x-c skiing. It got very wet.

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Compressible
  • Easy on

Cons

  • Doesn't breathe at all.

The fit was true to size. Arm and sleeve length was good. I like the weight and highly compressible for easy storage. Great as an outer layer or under a shell. It has the Deluge DWR (durable water repellant) finish that sheds light rain and snow.

I used it on a x-country tour and on the way back to my car, it was soaked. Doesn't breathe at all.
