Verified Buyer Reviewed by flyinbriyin from SLC, UT on Monday, December 1, 2014As a weekend cyclist I am only our riding 2-3 times a week. I wanted a nice warm jacket that would allow me to ride on the cold winter days in Utah. I have only had the chance to ride once with this jacket but I believe it will prove to be the jacket that I've been looking for. Temp was 40 degrees and I was plenty warm...at least on the parts that the jacket was covering. The black parts along the sides and inner arms are breathable so I didn't overheat. Great cut and feel. I am 6'1" and 190 lbs. I ordered both a L and XL as I wanted a snug cycling fit but found the L a little too short in front. I was worried that the XL would have really long arms, but I ended up keeping the XL as it was a much better fit for me.
I think this jacket will work for those colder days even down into the mid 30's. Colder than that though, I may just stay inside.

Reviewed by rygart from Seattle on Thursday, March 6, 2014This is a great jacket. Keeps you warm and has a good amount of pocket space. It is cut for a much more slim fit...for me I went a size up when I ordered and I am very please that I did. Then again I like a little space in my jackets due to the fact that I am usually wearing something under them. I had the P.R.O series of a jacket like this and I can definitely see the difference between the ELITE series and the P.R.O. series. I am pleased with my purchase, but know I will be getting another jacket in the P.R.O. series in the future.
Reviewed by John from Denver, CO on Thursday, November 14, 2013I only just received this jacket. I think I got the last one STP had, a medium, which is my normal PI elite/pro size. However the jacket seems somewhat large, and is looser in the arms and torso than I would like. That said it's really nice beautiful jacket and they don't have any smalls so I'll probably keep it. I dont know if they expect you to wear a bunch of layers under it but that'd be a bit ridiculous on the bike. I'm 5'11' 155, 32/32 and wear medium in PI elite/pro shorts.
Reviewed by Ron from NE Ohio on Saturday, November 9, 2013This is my first soft shell cycling jacket and it was a good choice. My first outing was in breezy 43 degree November weather, and with a long sleeve base layer on I felt comfortable. It was a little cool starting out, but after about ten minutes I felt fine. The main body of the jacket and the outer part of the sleeves will block the wind and elements, while the inner part of the sleeves and arm pit area (with the opposing color) is designed to ventilate. After riding, I never felt like I was in a sauna, so the jacket does breathe well. I am 5' 11", 185 lbs, with a 44" chest and bought the XL. I tried on both Large and XL, and the XL provided me with better shoulder room. It still fits snug throughout the body and the sleeve length is a little long while standing, but perfect when riding. If you have a chest size of 43"+, I would suggest the XL, as the Large will be more snug (almost like a wetsuit) and will also be a little shorter in body length. The XL, although just a bit longer overall, will provide you with more room in the torso and chest area without looking bulky.
