Great jacket. It is a little large on me, but I am always in between a medium and a large. I usually wear 8-10, I am 5'9'' 150 lbs, so medium is often too short. This fits great in length, a little large in the body, but I wear a tight thermal underneath. I got the pink, and I really love the color.

I got the pink version. Great base color, but the light pink sections just look like the dark pink colored the light pink in the laundry...like it was supposed to be white but the pink bled into it. It also seems to run large.

Great jacket! This jacket I will take me everywhere I go for fall and winter riding. It is too warm for summer use and too beautiful to cover up with layers over it when I ride in the winter. With the quality in this one I expect a good few years of heavy use.

I did not keep this product because it did not look like it would be easy to alter to make it look good on my body type. I love Pearl Izumi clothing, and everything usually fits me very well. I am typically a size small and occasionally a medium in this brand. The small was the correct size in this jacket for me, but I have a very short torso and need jackets with an hour glass shape to give me a waistline. This jacket was very bulky in the torso; under the armpits (I have a small chest- 34B), and in the back. There was lots of extra fabric in the upper and lower back areas. It looked bad on me, but the color, fabric, etc. were nice. Great price for a quality jacket. I'm sure it would look great on other body types...worth ordering to see if it fits you right.

Cons: Gaps out in the back, Not form fitting, Poor Fit
