Nice Jacket... Runs Small

Verified Buyer Reviewed by DJ from Chapel Hill, NC on Friday, February 17, 2012
This is a nice jacket for riding on cool days. It seems to be well made, and the reflective trim is a nice touch. The only thing to be aware of is that it runs about one size too small. I'm 5'7" and 150lbs, and I normally wear either a small or medium, depending upon the manufacturer. After reading other reviews stating that this jacket runs small, I ordered a medium. With my hands on the handlebars, the jacket is so tight across the shoulders that I'm afraid it's going to rip at the seams. I think I could easily wear a large. Of course, you want a cycling kacket to fit snug, and it was a great price, so I'm going to give it a try. But I won't be surprised if I reach for a water bottle and hear a tearing sound!
