Got this in December and have used it daily commuting through the winter. This jacket has quickly become one of my 'cannot do without' winter pieces. It performs great in a wide range of temps with just the change of baselayers. I've worn it from just under 50 to the teens - I wouldn't recommend using for anything over 50. Being Giordana you know it will fit well and it does. The sizing chart is spot on. It ventilates perfectly and you'll never be a sloppy mess after a long ride. The only con I can think of is weight. If you are a racer you might want to consider the FormaRed Carbon jacket. But, for my money I'm loving the ChainLove deal I got on this Silverline coat. If your riding takes you deep into the winter months you'd be crazy not to consider this jacket.
