Measure around your natural waistline, keeping the tape a bit loose.
Measure around the fullest part of your body at the top of your legs.
Using pants that fit well, measure the crotch seam to the bottom of the leg.

Near perfect. I bought it twice!

I've put it through the wringer
Runs small
Size Bought
5` 4"

I have the purple version of this and just bought it in navy blue. It's been perfect for fall rides in the Bay Area. I like that this jacket is understated -- favoring some reflective elements over high viz colors, and I can wear it when I'm not riding. The pockets are big and hold a lot. They are buttoned instead of zippered, which I saw someone didn't like, but I feel they are pretty secure. In my experience, the gear in this brand runs a little small, so whatever size you think you are, I'd suggest going a size up. I didn't notice any tightness around the hips but our bodies are all different, so be aware this might be an issue.

This jacket is perfect for spring biking

I've used it several times
Runs small
Size Bought
185 lbs

Believe the reviews that it runs small and size up. Even with sizing up, realize that this jacket is trim fitting which keeps it from catching the wind. By sizing up, I have room to wear a wool base layer t-shirt and a long sleeve tech fabric shirt underneath for added warmth. I might be able to get a thin fleece under it but nothing too thick. The jacket blocks the wind perfectly so you don't need to worry about the wind chilling you. I've worn it in temps from the mid 40s to 70 and have been comfortable. I love that the neck zips up high to keep wind out and warmth in and it doesn't rub. Someone said they didn't like the pockets but I like the fact that I can tuck a tissue in there easily. I don't keep anything in the pockets that I would worry about losing. Good clothing goes a long way in cycling and this jacket was a good investment.

So nice I had to buy it twice

I've put it through the wringer
Runs small
Size Bought
5` 4"

Bought the purple one, then got the forest green one. It's perfect for cycling. I mainly use it for commuting and I don't overheat. Great wind protection, haven't tried it in the rain though. Fit is a little tight around hips (bought size XS, and my hips are 36"), but good thing it's a dual zipper so I can zip away from the bottom a bit.

Lots of compliments

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

Does run small and it's light, but fairly windproof. I did not realize it has built-in (interesting) hand covers in the sleeves which are nice when you don't quite need gloves. Stylish. I get lot of compliments on it whether or not people realize it's a biking jacket. Love it.

Cute and comfy!

I've put it through the wringer

Great rain jacket. Runs a little small. Not too much inclination but perfect for Cali winter. Love the green color and the low key reflective areas work super well no matter how many washes I give it.

Comfortable & Perfect Fit

I was nervous about the torso length with the other reviews but I am 5'8", 110 lbs and the torso length is just perfect both front and back. I got the XS and it's the perfect size; not too tight and not too loose. The drawstrings are nice and add a really nice shape to the jacket. Pro tip: there are hidden glove liners tucked into the top of the sleeve openings!

My new favorite

I've used it several times

This jacket is not only super comfortable but also so functional. Keeps you warm but not too warm. The low key reflectors keep you safe. Highly recommend this jacket.

Even better than expected

I've used it several times

This is a great jacket - versatile (any New England season, depending on layering or activity); stylish/tailored/flattering (on or off the bike); and functional (plusses: tail drop, waterproof or at least highly resistant, soft material that moves well, secret hand mitts). If I were to adjust this to make it PERFECT, I'd change the pockets from snaps to zippers (snaps require two hands to undo cuz you gotta hold the material, zippers you can undo/do with just one hand). And give it a solid loop at the back collar to hang it up with. And make the torso a tad longer (back is fine, sleeves are great, shoulder/chest width is great but front torso is a tad short). Very pleased with this and am wearing it instead of multiple other jackets - i.e., it's all-around, multipurpose.
