Comments about Nashbar Derby Softshell Jacket:

I ordered this coat in xxxl. Im 6 foot, 260lbs. Not petite but not NFL offensive lineman either. This coat is sooo undersized. I could not even get a sweatshirt under this. Great coat for money if you prefer skin tight bike clothes or you weigh 125lbs dripping wet.

    This jacket solved the problem of cold fabric press up against the skin on windy days. Its thicker and brushed on the inside so its both warm and comfortable.

      Comments about Nashbar Derby Softshell Jacket:

      Had this jacket for a few years now. I wear this with a compression poly base layer in temperatures below 40 degrees, any warmer and I am a sweaty mess in this jacket. When the temp dips below 15 or so, I add another poly layer under the jacket, and I am comfortable down to at least -20F (that's as cold we've had here in the past few years). It is quite wind resistant. I never have to worry about my torso getting cold with this jacket, and the yellow is nicely visible in the dark winter months. I went down in this jacket once, and tore a hole in the elbow of one sleeve. I cleaned up the edges of the tear, and patched it with an adhesive patch, and have been using it for the past year or so without any other problems, even after laundering and running through the dryer.

        Just what I wanted. This doesn't flap when I ride, comfy to jog. I've biked and jogged in 35 F weather in perfect comfort.

        Temps in 40s

        By Bob

        from Maryland

        Comments about Nashbar Derby Softshell Jacket:

        This is part of my heavy artillery when.the temperature is around 40. i wear wool base layer, long sleeve jersey and Derby and I'm comfortable. As soon as temperature gets near 50, I need to peel it for lighter jacket. It's less of a jacket in design -- no side pockets--and more of a jersey-- with back pockets.

          I'm 5'11" 175 lbs male, and the medium fits perfectly. Sleeves are long enough to pull down over my hands when I'm walking around without gloves. Only ridden it down to 35° weather so far, but I was very warm with only a long sleeve jersey under it.. Shell is soft and comfortable. I bought a red one and sometimes wear it when I'm out not on the bike. Has panels of porous fabric that let out any perspiration.

            It arrived today and I took it for a test ride. 45 degrees, clear & sunny, North wind 10 to 15. 15 mile loop, moderately fast. Single lightweight short sleeve base layer. I was comfortable, could regulate temp somewhat with the zipper, most of my perspiration wicked out well. Better than any other jacket I've used. I'm 5' 11", 155 lbs, have always worn medium jerseys and jackets. This medium is a little loose everywhere: sleeves, shoulders, chest, waist. But I'll keep it, nice to have room for more layers. Fabric is stiff enough that it doesn't flap in the wind.

              Comments about Nashbar Derby Softshell Jacket:

              I was in the market for a nice winter softshell jacket. I thought I was going to spend 100.00 or more on one that suited my needs. That is when I found this jacket made by Nashbar. So, everything I had bought that carried the Nashbar brand had been top notch and on point with the description, this purchase was no different. The color, feel and quality are great, the wind resistant panels work great while some areas of the jacket let some air in for ventilation. I am 5'7 142 lbs and the jacket fits me well, leaves some area for movement, slim enough to look modern and stylish and casual, you can use it with a pair of jeans or cycling pants, it wont look out of place either way. I guess other jackets made by Santini for example are great, but they carry a bigger price tag and are cycling attire oriented......this jacket is great for 30 degree weather, with lower temps, I would recommend wearing this jacket, plus a long sleeve thermal jersey and an under armour style tight undershirt...that should be enough for 0 temps. (I live in Nebraska so I know cold weather)...if you are looking for a jacket that wont disappoint in freezing weather, has a pretty good price tag and can be worn in casual settings, look no further!

                Comments about Nashbar Derby Softshell Jacket:

                Based on the hundreds of positive reviews on this jacket I was expecting it to be good. Even so, it has exceeded my expectations. This jacket is extremely nice and very warm. The fabric is windproof, so you will not feel the chill of the air biting through. The consequence is that the fabric is not very breathable. To remedy this there are some breathable panels situated on the leeward (not windward) side of the garment. The jacket is lined with a fleecy material. When I started my ride yesterday the temp was 39F. Under this jacket I was wearing two light weight tech layers; one long sleeved and one sleeveless. My core was not even remotely cold. It had warmed into the upper 40's by the end of my ride and I had unzipped about 8 inches. By the time it hits the mid 50's it's time to switch to a bike jersey and arm warmers. I wish I would have had this jacket years ago, it is so nice on those cold days. I am 5'10" 160 lbs and the medium is great. I would not want it any smaller. Fit is true to size. It would be nice at twice the price, nothing less than 5 stars for this jacket.
