Really cool jacket for mild weather. Isn't fleece lined or anything like that and if it's pretty cold out, you'd want another jacket on top of it, but for mild days it's awesome.

For those curious about fit, I'm 5,10' and lean (little bit of upper body muscle) and the small is a really good, snug fit. If you're the same height, but a tad chubby, go up to the medium or you'll look like the Michelin Man.

Only criticism is the extra high collar, if worn up you'll look like you've been kicked off the set of Jersey Shore, and if down.... it looks less rad. But it's not enough to matter.

Buy it.

I've bought plenty of Capo stuff over the last few years and this is typical of what I'd expect from Capo, good quality, great design and comfy mid-range kit.

I'm 5,10' and a Cat1 cyclist. Bought these in medium and the fit is spot on.

Only thing stopping them from getting 5 stars is I have found something digging into my groin, but I think it's just a poorly cut but of stitching and should be able to fix it with a pair of scissors.

Have bought plenty of Capo kit in recent years and love it.
This jersey is certainly good in terms of material (very light weight, awesome for summer) and construction.
The one complaint I do have is that the pockets suuuck.
I'm 5,10' and a Cat 1 (read: lean) rider and got this in a small, as I have with all my other Capo kit. The Jersey fit is good, but the pockets sit way down on the jersey and when I put the phone in, it sags right over my butt. Not a good look.
I took it to a seamstress and they completely removed the pockets and put them higher up and now it's great, but it's a pretty epic oversight, given Capo are traditionally really good at making stuff for serious cyclists.

Got this in a small (am a 5,10" cat1 rider, lean but with a bit of muscle). It's a very snug fit, not uncomfortably snug, but a little more than I'd like.
Bought this expecting a good, warm gillet. Unfortunately, it's a very thin plasticy material and really only useful for light showers, but certainly not for keeping warm.
Most other Capo gillets are very good (Modena gillet is great), but if you want something to keep you warm on chilly mornings, this isn't the one for you.
