ry514-0wrote a review of Hincapie Sportswear Pocket Shell Vest - Women's on April 21, 2010
Had to send these back . . . Runs small in the chest for a women's cut vest. Am normally a S in jerseys and like my cycling clothing fitted, but the Smalls of this vest were uncomfortably tight on the chest and and not flattering. And the XS - forget it! It would not have covered stuffed-full back jersey pockets. Length is OK for a short-medium length torso but I didn't try it in the saddle.The other problem was with the vest's full-length zipper and the side pocket zipper. They were tight to pull (too tight for on-the-bike costume changes) and the pocket zipper got off track with the first unzip and would not re-zip without the utmost patience (a tooth at a time). I tried three different sizes/colors and all had the same zipper problems. Disappointing - Hincapie products are usually such high quality but they got the zippers wrong this time. I wonder if it might work for someone who has the patience to break in the zippers and who wouldn't use the side pocket.The colors are great, though: a bright red-orange, a beautiful shimmery jade/teal, and a yellow that is less obnoxious than non-fluorescent regular yellow but still provides good visibility (lemonade is accurately descriptive). Fabric seems durable, and yes, they are tiny, packable, light.
