Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I've used the original Gore Tool jacket since 2010. Got clipped by a car last February and the jacket got torn. Thus, I decided to buy the Fusion Tool SO. Not as warm as original Gore Tool jacket but pretty close. Zips seem to work better, and I like the tethered sunglass cleaning cloth in the chest pocket. Steeper angled rear pockets with the added zips are cool. It gets chilly during the winters here in the Northeast US, so I'll probably have to add some clothing to my core & arms to equal the comfort of the original Tool jacket. Overall I'm happy I bought it.
......a few days later.....I've worn this jacket on 2 more rides and really like it, BUT it just continues to feel a size too large, and thus chillier in 30° temps than I would expect. Other reviewers complained it ran too small, so I am a bit perplexed.
Anyway, I finally decided to look into an exchange, and the fine folks at CC came thru in flying colors. What a great place to do business! Thanks guys!
Looking fw to getting it in small.

At 67 I don't use the 'awesome' word much, but in this case it is warranted. 1st ride today in CT's "lovely" Dec. weather. 50 miles, 37 deg's (25 w/ the wind chill). Pit-zips & the chest pocket are great for venting. I was completely comfy with just a baselayer. The free gloves seem pretty good too. Wore a pair of polypro liners and no frozen digits.

After reading all the complaints I still bought these. Figured how can u go wrong for the $11? Wellllll....being wary I pumped up the first one, hung it in the garage and it was flat when I returned 3 hrs later. Undaunted, I pumped up the 2nd one - almost. I heard the "ker-pow" after 5-6 pumps. Threw the remainder in the trash. 1st disappointment ever from Bonktown.
