Super warm, great fit, love the look.
the quality and fit are great. The original concern that it would not breather and become a sweat box, happy to say it is a great jacket
I was very pleased with this jacket. It helped me bike through a Minnesota winter in comfort. Following someone else's suggestion, I purchased a 2X, which was perfect. The extra room allowed me to wear the appropriate layers underneath.
This Aero softshell jacket is well made and fits my big shoulders and long arms.
I wasn't sure I wanted to spend more money on a winter riding jacket, but a guy in our bike club was very fond of this one, so I sprang for it. -- I was not disappointed. It's now the jacket I wear anytime it is truly 'cold' or wintry out. --- I can put on 2 or 3 layers (thermal long-sleeve undershirt and biking thick-nylon pullover, plus a medium-weight fleece vest) and wear this jacket out on 25F days with 25 mph winds, and feel comfortable for hours. On days just above freezing, I don't need the vest and 2 layers underneath are sufficient. --- The jacket zips up snug and the elastic wrist-closures really help seal out the cold.
I bought this jacket to give me protection from the damp cold Portland weather. It has actually exceeded my expectations. It is warm enough and blocks the wind such that with minimal base layering I can ride in weather with windchill to 20+ degrees. I usually base layer with a light merino wool long sleeve shirt. I add a light short sleeve shirt over that. Has been great for crossing the Columbia River on the I205 bridge on my commute to Camas.
I received my Aero Tech soft shell cycling jacket, happy that I ordered the 2X size. Very happy with the fitting with a little room to spare if I had to add a fleece under the jacket. I am 6'3 235lbs. I just wore a long sleeved zip shirt underneath and I was warm while riding. Definitely cuts the cold while wearing this jacket. I am very impressed with the quality of the material. Happy with the outside chest pocket as well as the zip pockets on both. Fleece cuffs at the end of the arms cut any cold that might come up your sleeve. Yes I would recommend this coat highly and wasn't bad for the price either. I purchased the jacket in yellow for the visibility as I ride both roadside and trail.
I've been looking for quite some time for a winter cycling jacket and finally found it!! A tad longer in the sleeves and body than my lighter jacket, which is perfect for cold weather. I'm 6', 230lbs but long waisted, and the 2X was perfect. Very comfortable collar when zipped up all the way at the start of the ride (then I can zip it down when I'm warmed up). Super warm, but breathable so I don't arrive home soaked. Well made (as is everything from Aerotech), nice pockets inside and out. Very reasonably prices as compared to the bigger name brands. I've become a HUGE Aerotech fan and hope they stay in business for a long, long time.
I purchased the ATSoft-shell jacket several months ago primarily for cold weather riding. Although the weather was too warm for a fair test, that's no longer the case. I find the jacket + a merino wool shirt is perfect for riding when the outside temperature is between 30 - 40 deg. F. Below that, I add another layer, e.g., a sweater, and am quite comfortable. (I wish my hands stayed as warm!) One other thing: The jacket runs true to size, which has not been my experience with other brands. In short, I am as pleased with the AT soft-shell jacket as I am with their cycling shorts, of which I have several.
I was very unsure about getting this jacket as it is my first time buying a bicycle specific winter jacket. I am very impressed at it's overall performance. I have no regrets getting it and the longer I have it the better I like it.
This is my second of these jackets. The first one was a size larger. (Ride more, eat less - lose weight) As a person living on Social (in) Security I try to find the best "bang for the buck". Yes, I could find a winter jacket at a big mart store for a lot less. But would it be any good for cycling? Probably not. In those wise words from Benjamin Franklin, “The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.”
Don't "cheap out" on winter cycling apparel. Get the good stuff.
Really happy with the jacket. Bought 2x and it is roomy. Road in low 30's with only a long sleeve t under it and was comfortable for 1.5 hours. Was expecting to see made in USA on it which is what drove my purchase
