Ridiculously small. Had to return, very disappointed. Bought this for my husband who is not a large man, 5'11" 190, and he couldn't even get the zipper to connect.

Poor Back Pocket with Flapping Shoulders
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
The vest blocks wind but it hamstrung by annoying design decisions. I ended up returning the vest.
The rear pocket is closed with velcro, making access while riding nearly impossible.
The shoulders flap above 20mph in the slipstream. The body of the vest was correct fitting but the shoulders were really too much noise and motion to ignore.
The wind blocking was adequate and made the difference between chilled and comfortable. The back of the vest was well vented. I just thought the pocket and shoulders weren't worth messing with so I didn't keep it.
Good vest, a bit loud
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
So far i have had good experiences with this vest, the shoulder flaps tend to be pretty loud on the descents but not a huge deal as the flaps also help dump heat on the uphill so I am happy to say this vest breathes really well while at the same time shielding wind like a champ.
