Runs small, performs large

These vests run small. Expect to order a size up than what you expect for women and men. I have been really impressed with this vest. I race sailboats in the Pacific Northwest of the USA and we've had a miserably cold and rainy first half of 2022. I've used both Musto and Outdoor Research vests as an extra layer just above my bibs and below my rain jacket, but I kept coming back to this one. It's 1/3rd of the price of the Musto gillet for similar performance and more confortable wear. It far outperforms the OR vest. The breathability of the stretchy back and the relative impermeability of the front to wind makes it a great extra layer for warmth. On the few racing days so far this season when it hasn't been cold and wet, it does a great job keeping you confortable in the upwind legs without making you feel too hot on the downwind legs. I'm so impressed I'm ordering these as SWAG for my crew for the season.

Best Gilet ever purchased

It has a longer back than many, is well made, windproof and quite breathable..Ive actually bought three - they just fit the bill in all seasons. Good and well sized zippable pockets for keys, phones and wallets etc I did have to get a 3XL instead of my normal 2XL - possibly would fit a more sporty 2XL ..I have genuinely seen nothing similar from other manufacturers

Warm layer under jacket

Bought a few of these for work .2 different sizes ( L and XL for me) are a brilliant warm layer under jacket working outdoors / driving. 3 pockest right size for phone and valuables. Even 2 slim inside pockets ( not secure).back colour foes with everything in my wardrobe for work and play. Back is slightly less strong fabric , so good for activities. Washes and dries easy at 30 degrees. Used for months now and washed daily.

Seems to be a good product but careful about sizes

I purchased this initially to play tennis. The jacket seems to be of very good quality, but far too snug. I am 5.11 (1m 80), 85kg, and a L was far too tight for me (although length would have been perfect). In the end I opted for a long sleeve jacket in the tennis section which fitted my needs perfectly. So if you buy this gilet, probably go at least a size above !

High quality

Good high quality gilet, much better than other gilets I have purchased over the years from premium outdoor brands It’s a bit snug but that is required for the wind proofing to work. A high quality garment

Great bodywarmer

Lightweight and keeps my core temperature up/even without being too hot and great to wear to the gym or during work days that require physical labour. I'm a woman and the fit is great as well- the female ones just weren't what I was looking for- they had too many layers and I just needed something that was lightweight but that did the job.

Thermal comfort and windproof

The wind causes the perceived temperature to decrease considerably. With an outside temperature of 32°F and 12 mph winds, it will feel like the temperature is 14°F. The "windproof" components help to eliminate the discomfort linked to this "freezing effect". They are very effective at reducing heat loss by creating a barrier against the wind.
