    Comments about Nashbar Derby Softshell Jacket:

    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.

            Great product for the price. Does not feel like you just throw a plastic garbage bag over your shoulders. Keeps wind at bay without sacrificing comfort.

                  They run small - I got a large and gave it to my wife. The XL fits well. I'm 5'!0", 180 lbs.
                  Only complaint is that the zipper zips on the other (female) side.

                  Not waterproof but that's what rain coats are for. Good red reflective color. I like the relax fit so I ordered one size up than normal.

                    This appears to be a well made jacket. Blocks almost all the cold air. Fit is correct for a medium. Hi Vis is very hi vis and a great deal on sale with an additional 20% / 25% discount. I use it for cool / cold days while on road rides. The neck closure could be a little better but other than that small item, it's a nice winter jacket. It could be used for running as well on cold days.

                        I'm 5ft7in 135# and the small fits well. The sleeves might be slightly long and the back slightly short, but the slender fit around my body works well and overall this jacket is comfortable. I got this jacket for cooler commutes and have ridden my 35min commute when it was about 40F and did not feel cold. The windproof panels are well placed to allow pit and back ventilation. I got this in Hi-Vis and it's an accurate description. The reflective elements are not large (except for the tacky "N" on the back) but the color is super bright for morning commuting. Some of the stitching inside seemed like it would rub, but I didn't even notice with a short-sleeve jersey underneath.
