lole products are well made, smartly designed, and surprisingly stylish. i've got a small torso and somewhat curvy hips. combined with my long arms on my 6' frame, lole rarely disappoints, and this jacket is true to form.

I really like the look of this jacket, but it is thinner than I thought it would be and is proportionatly smaller in the shoulders but larger in the waist and hips. I was at the top end of size large in waist and hip measurements, so I sized up into XL. My bust is smaller (size 10-12 in tops) but with my wide-ish shoulders the jacket fits well there. However, my waist and hips are size 12-14 and the XL is a lot looser in these areas than I expected for fitting so well in the shoulders and being a "slim cut" style. I debated trying a large but was worried I wouldnt have enough arm movement to ride my bike or be mobile and comfortable. I can very comfortably layer a fleece under this or fit another jacket over it (it does get cold, wet, and windy here!) I'm keeping the jacket because I got a good deal and overall I really like the look. The belt (though cheap, is easily changed) defines my waist. I have yet to test it in rain or wind, but I think this jacket will be perfect to layer with or stuff in my bag when I don't know if I'll be riding home in the rain.

I really liked the jacket. However, while the bust fit in a medium, the waist and hips were much too large. The structure of the coat precludes altering. (I'm 5'7", 130 pounds.) It's also a bit short waisted.
