I've been in the market for a windproof biking jacket to ride my fixie/ss on the daily commute to work and back (10 miles each way) in NYC winter weather. I'm very pleased with the performance of this jacket, it keeps me warm but not hot at around 30-40F with one base layer (usually a thin hoodie that I like). The fabric is completely windproof and has air vents on the armpit area; I'm yet to test how it performs with rainy conditions. I'd say it's true to size if you are the athletic type, I'm 5'11'' and weight 170lbs and it fits perfect in M and I have long torso and broad shoulders. I like so much that I'm thinking of buying the Spoir Jersey for when the weather gets around 50-60F.

Nice. I just ordered this and your description of the fit and size made me confident to pick the small for me (i'm 5'5 and 125lbs), as with most other cycling gear I have. I'm pretty sure I'll still have some wiggle room in there for a winter base layer. Thanks for the review!
