Breathable rain gear is getting better and better- this piece is highly water resistant and doesn't leave you feeling particularly clammy. For cyclists, I'd strongly recommend spending a bit more on a Castelli Gabba jersey, which is considerably superior in every way except visibility at night from the rear. This thing will either flap just a bit in spots or be too constricting- I find both of those qualities pretty annoying. It is the second best thing I've found for riding in the rain. It also has no drawstring/elastic type material along the bottom so it sort of hangs oddly on your body.

I immediately put this to the test as soon as it arrived. The temperature was 26 degrees with a wind chill of 9 degrees and light snow as I slid this on over my smartwool merino wool base layer and ventured out to take on my 5 mile run. I could not believe how well my body temperature was regulated over the 35 - 40 minute jog. It also kept me completely dry from the light snow that fell during the entire time. If I could afford it, I would grab another one of these to alternate throughout the winter season.

This is a thin dense-weave fabric that is extremely comfortable and blocks wind very well. I use it for biking and running. I have a Sporthill pullover about the same price but like this one even more. The design and color scheme is very nice. Fitment is perfect as long as you are fit. Arms are nice and long with cuffs on the inside. The only pockets are one in back and the left upper arm which is fine. I did notice that when placing an ipod nano in the arm pocket that it will have sweat all over it so not sure this garment is the most breathable. That said, I love this shirt and the fitment is very flattering if you are reasonably fit. I feel like a million bucks wearing it.
