Great if it fits you

I bought this jacket with some trepidation as I read reviews about the rather odd fit (big in the shoulders and chest, narrow in waist and hips). I am 5'4", 135 pounds, 36D, but pretty straight from waist through hips. The jacket fits me in the chest and shoulders and is just a little long in the sleeves. It is definitely fitted but not tight at the waist. I've found the two way zipper to be very useful - the jacket fits my hips fine when I'm riding my bike as it slides up a bit towards the waist when I'm bent but I open the zipper from the bottom about one inch when I'm walking around. The fabric might be giving just a little bit but I have not had it long enough yet to be certain. As for wind resistant, it works fine for me. Typical winds where I ride are 5-15 mph with a few gusts up to 20 mph. More than that and I am not going riding, anyway. The removable vest is nice, although the sleeve holes are a bit big for me. The sleeves fit in the rear pocket easily and the magnets make on and off simple. Can't say anything about rain resistance as it hasn't rained. The fabric is nice and soft and has a nice feel to it, not plastic or rubbery at all. It's a nice jacket at a great price, if your body aligns with the shape of it.
