Excellent value in cycling shell

ORDER ONE SIZE LARGER. I purchased this shell after trying the Pearl Izumi microlite from STP. Returned the Pearl b/c noisy in high wind, and too big. This Canari is a much better value than the PI. I wear it on daily rides in weather ranging from mid-20s to 60s. Excellent wind protection and good breathability (cannot comment on water resistance). Visibility is outstanding (neon yellow). I like the back pocket, where I carry cellphone, energy bar, banana, etc. When weather warms, stuff jacket into back pocket, and wear around waist using elastic belt. The fabric is a little heavier, which makes it quieter in high winds. There is nothing about this jacket that I dislike. Form follows function. [...]
