    Comments about Nashbar Derby Softshell Jacket:

    This was the one item I lacked in winter apparrel for riding. Received this jacket the day before an arctic front came through. Tested it in the cold the next day. Temperature was around 33 with a wind chill of 21. The jacket acted as a good barrier with only a long sleeve jersey underneath. I thought I would take a short ride for a test and ended up ride for an hour and a half. Body and arms were warm the entire ride.

          Not sure if I reviewed this already, today I rode in 17 degree weather and I was fine wearing this jacket with just a thin heat shirt underneath. My toes were completely numb and my hands were cold, but my body was fine. Only complaint is the XL is a little short on me (6'2") and it doesn't really breathe. Jacket gets very damp with sweat.

            Comments about Nashbar Derby Softshell Jacket:

            The Derby soft shell jacket is a superlative product because it is so warm and has a wonderful stretch to move with you. The 3 rear pockets are large and well elasticized so nothing can fall out. The jacket material and construction seem indestructable with a smooth finish on the outside and a soft fleece inside. The stretch fabric and super stretch side panels enable a perfect fit for about anyone. It is both warm and very wind resistant so few layers are needed to permit sub freezing riding. Maximum temp you can use this with a thin base layer would be about 45 degrees. At 32 degrees I use 2 thin long sleeve base layers with this and I am toasty. Oh, and it comes out of the washer and dryer like new again even after covered in mud from mountain biking. It is obviously a great value as well.

            Ordered this jacket as a windbreaker shell for commuting (10 miles a day) from 40 degrees and less. The jacket was a good fit. I'm 6'3" 215lbs, with the help of my wife measuring my chest I ordered the XL which is a very comfortable fit. I can layer up to a wicking base T, Polypro long sleeve, winter jersy, polarfleece vest. It was a comfortable night rode in 10 degree temps. Breathability may not be as good as gortex but it was a fraction of the cost. Overall I feel it was a good value.

              Have used for commuting & recreational rides. Warm enough for rides in the mid-30's, good for lower temps. with layering. Rear pockets are easily accessable.

                Jacket was too small, sizing is a little small. It is heavier than I thought, warm but does not breathe very well. Best for very cold weather when not climbing hills.

                    Comments about Nashbar Derby Softshell Jacket:

                    My new favorite jacket for colder weather. The stretch fabric is great for conforming to your body and moving with you while riding. Surprisingly warm for its medium weight. I cycle in the low to mid 3 degrees with just two thin base layers under it. One thin base layer will get you into the 40's. The jacket is too warm for above 50 degrees IMO. Breaks the wind well and even when it is plastered with mud from mountain biking it washes out like new. Rear pockets are tightly structured so nothing comes out. Really a bargain for such a quality garment.
