Good Buy

I wanted a light weight wind-proof jacket for commuting on my bike. I was debating between this and Marmot Ion Ultralight Windshirt Jacket: Item #2374G, so I order both along with several others. These two were what I was looking for, since they were very light, could stuff down to a small size. I finally decided on this one, since it was also waterproof (both are breathable). I did like the material and fit of the other a little better (it was very thin material and more pleasing to the touch) and would have gone with it if waterproof was not a consideration. This jacket feels a little more plastic like, but it breathed fine on the one ride I have taken it on so far (arms flapped a little in the wind). Size runs big. I usually wear L-XL, but the M fit ok, I probably could have gone with a S.
