This is my first Sportful clothing purchase. I selected and bought this jacket as an exterior layer to be worn in our pacific coast fall through to early spring weather. Bought size based on size chart measurements and it fits as expected. I bought the Orange colour and I have been advised that it provides a very good level of visbility to others on the road. Lots of length in the arms to keep wrists warm. The jacket stays put along the hemline, keeping lower back area warm and protected. Neck fit is good. Have worn the jacket in temperatures ranging from 1-15 degrees C, with varying layers underneath. Has proven to be a very good wind barrier (don't even feel the gusts), and offers protection when the rain falls. Love that it breathes, thanks to the Polartec NeoShell - even when you have to stop to fix a flat, it has enough warmth and breathability that you don't get chilled. The rear pockets have lots of room to hold your phone, snacks and whatever else you take on your rides. Overall, I have found this jacket to be a great fit, no matter what I wear underneath, it cuts the wind, is comfortable and I would highly recommend it.
It's not yet rainy season but I've had a chance to use them a couple times, so far so good (For biking and backpacking). I appreciate how lightweight they are, and the brightness of the reflectors. I'm a little nervous that they have zippers, I am concerned they will be the fail point with time but so far so good. I will update the review if I can after I've had a chance to use them in the rain more.
I bought this jacket for my wife to use when we ride in cooler weather in the mid-Atlantic region. She's so pleased with it that it has become her go-to when the weather is between 38-50 degrees. She adjusted her base layer from long sleeve to short sleeve depending on the temperature, but this jacket has become a constant fixture!
This pant compliments my Showers Pass Pro Cycle jacket well. Ample leg room fits comfortably over street wear. The waist doesn't pinch. Velcro calf warps increase visibility as well as guard against lower-leg puddle splash ups. The saddle inset is also water-proof so I don't arrive with a wet groin from lifting off the saddle as I ride. Ankle zippers allow me to pull the pant off without removing my shoes if I choose. Flat zippers along the side allow easy access to pockets too. This design of this garment is functional, comfortable, preforms exceedingly well and well worth the investment.
