Great Basic Cold-weather Jacket

I got this jacket about a week ago, and have used it for daily commuting and one longer ride over the weekend in 20-45 degree dry weather. I'm 5'10", 200 pounds with a 42-inch chest and a 36 inch waist, and the XL fits me wall, albeit a little long in the sleeves. The WindStopper Soft Shell does everything it advertises, plus it is moves quietly, unlike some shell material. When I start getting warm the jacket does feel a little damp inside. I have found myself wishing for pit zips and a chest pocket like those on the Gore Bike Wear ALP-X SO, Cosmo SO and Tool SO...
