I bought this jacket in Neon because I was starting a longer commute and needed a jacket that was breathable, wicking, and wind resistant for cold/cool weather. I love it and it is super warm without bulk and nice and soft. So far it is fine down into the 20's F and I can quickly whip off the sleeves if I am too warm on the ride home. The back pockets are a little high but roomy. The fit is also pretty snug (XL) - or I am in denial (5'4" 148 #). In the winter I am riding typically with two thin base layers. I have not washed it yet - but have rubbed off mud with a damp cloth after a wet ride home and it cleaned up nicely. I have been wearing it 4 days per week for several weeks.
