|Aero Tech Designs Jacket - Size Chart|
Great for brisk race mornings. The button up rear flap is a game changer. Over all a great product and does exactly what it says it does. The removable hood is a nice touch. Minimal logos, not to flashy. Very nice stuff. Buy one!!
Like all rain jackets, breathability is reduced. That said, this well-fitting jacket keeps you dry even in a downpour. The hood used as a helmet liner also keeps water off your head and even (to a large extent) out of your eyes.
Lightweight, plenty of pocket, can wear in 45ø and above.
Just received my cycle jacket today. It is the best jacket I have ever owned
The quality is fantastic and it shows the amazing detail aerotech has done to give cyclists a great ride.
What is truly wonderful about Aerotech products is EVERYTHING FITS LIKE IT SHOULD!!
Please keep up the great work!!!!
I use the jacket during a 30 min commute to/from work and have found it comfortable in sizing and it keeps me nice and dry in moderate rain. I haven't used it during heavy rain but expect it will still keep me nice and dry. I don't use the detachable hood as I tend to overheat pretty easily. I've used it in temperatures 4 - 15 deg C and need to unzip at the warmer temperatures to prevent overheating. Underarm vents would go a long way to helping keep the overheating under control. A great rain jacket for cooler temperatures but I don't think I'll be able to use it at warmer temperatures.
Well made and light weight. Great for use during light rain and wind breaker. When using the hood under a bike helmet, there was not enough length in the hood to wear comfortably. When I look down or to the side, it pulls on the jacket lifting the shoulders. Also, the collar is loose around the neck and doesn't come up very high so its possible for a small amount of rain to run down face and neck, going under the jacket.
Let me start by saying this is the only product from Aerotech Designs that I have found to be disappointing. I own a number of items that I love and wear daily and whenever possible I promote their products to other riders. This jacket however is not on par with the rest of their gear. I ordered the medium based on the sizing chart but when it arrived it was way to small. I was not able to put the hood up and stand up straight let alone get into a riding position so I sent it back (+$10 return shipping) and asked for a Large. The large was hardly any better. It is much wider than it is long and as a result leaves a bunch of extra material around my sides and not enough down my front. The main zipper gets stuck in several places including the very top which makes for unzipping while in the saddle near impossible. It doesn't breath at all which I was expecting but when you add in the fact that the zipper sticks it makes it that much worse because you cant vent it out at all. The material seems flimsy and is very noisy. It crinkles like a dull bag of chips and the reflective material is already starting to flake off even though I've only worn it in the rain a handful of times. The only thing I really like about this jacket is the back flap that you can unbutton to cover more of your bum when you're in the riding position. I was looking for a nice rain jacket for all this El Nino rain we've been getting in California but this jacket was not worth the money that I spent. Disappointing.
I'm now retired and just getting back into cycling, with that I'm finding that the sizing for most cycling apparel out there does not come close to matching USA sizing. My main problem is with jerseys and jackets. With a chest size of 48", I normally wear a 2XL, but it's hard to find manufacturers that make quality jerseys and jackets for bigger men. This was my first purchase from Aero Tech and I must say this 2XL jacket I ordered actually fit and was of great quality. I'll be coming back to Aero Tech.
Great service and Great product.
