I've switched to exclusively wearing Giordana FRC and this jacket lives up to the rest of the line. First, I love that Giordana doesn't sacrifice style and quality in its women's line, unlike most other brands that don't offer women's options in their highest end products. This jacket has all the bells and whistles of the men's version. Wore it in 40-degree weather with a baselayer and was toasty warm. The side vents are especially worth the extra money over the Silverline or Fusion jackets - as the day warmed up to about 55, I unzipped the vents and the jacket regulated temperature perfectly. Has three nicely sized pockets plus a zip pocket on the back, AND an iphone pocket on the front inside chest. Sizing tip -- the shoulders run small because of the jacket's windproof fabic, which is less stretchy and flexible than normal jersey fabric. I wear a small Giordana jersey but have wider shoulders than your average size small, so I had to size up to a medium in this jacket for range of motion.
