The color looks nothing like the picture
It looks like a nice medium orange in the picture, but in reality it’s like a glow in the dark coral.

Only Assos can call this $150 ultra thin nylon shell a “pretty fair price” lol. That being said the loly red color is quite attractive (in my opinion) and definitely high visibility. The jacket is super thin so it packs down really well into a jersey pocket with room to spare . It’s got some mesh around the back of the arms to help breathability but it has no real vents and the nylon fabric does not breathe at all. It’s thin enough that you can feel the cool on bare skin which I find comforting and helps prevent overheating - I suggest size up so you can wear arm warmers underneath if need be. A larger size also provides a bit of gap at the cuffs to allow wind to scoop up your arms again to provide some air for sweat evaporation. Honestly I’d give this 5 stars but had to subtract at least one as there are equal or better lightweight wind shells out there for half price, even Assos own blitz feder on sale is a way better performing jacket with very similar attributes plus lots more venting and compresses into its own pocket. This shell does not have any pockets to speak of and it’s so thin I use a nylon bag to stuff it into as I’m afraid it will rip while handling without some form of protection. So if your looking for style, basic emergency or light weather protection and you have the $ it’s good item, if you’re looking for practical value for the $ look elsewhere.
