Comments about Santini Zapp Softshell Jacket:

This is a pretty nice jacket for cold days on the bike. I've never heard of Santini outside of Nashbar so I'm not sure if it is Nashbar's proprietary brand? The jacket's MSRP is ridiculously overpriced but, on sale, it is reasonable. Santini seems to run small. I usually wear medium. With Santini clothing I have to go with large. I'm 5'9" and 175.

    Comments about Santini Zapp Softshell Jacket:

    I am 165lbs and 5'10" with a 42" chest. This jacket, in a XL, BARELY fits. According to the chart, a Large would have fit.

    Now for the good news. I rode this with an under-layer in 40 F degree weather and was very comfortable. The sleeves are adequately long. The fit is very much race style. I was worried up it riding up my back as I rode, but after 16 miles, it hadn't moved. I like it.

    I ordered a large and it was just too tight and high in back. So I got the XXL and it fits great. Very comfortable down to 40F. The L fits my daughter and she loves it.

      Comments about Santini Zapp Softshell Jacket:

      The jacket does exactly what it's supposed to, block the wind. The fit is more race orientated. It's not loose. I wear it with one base layer, under armor or a race fit jersey. The jacket is shorter up front, which I like. Especially when I'm tucked. I dislike having bunched up clothing around the midsection. Sizing is euro. Sleeves are long enough to fit seamless with gloves. I'm 5'9 195 and XL was just right. At the price you would be hard pressed to find a better wind jacket.

      @6'4" 215 lbs, the XXL still did not have proper fit. Too short in the front and a little tight. ended up with AGU XXL. A little more $ but much better fit and look.

          Comments about Santini Zapp Softshell Jacket:

          Sizing is highly inaccurate. I normally buy an xxl in a jacket so I can put several layers underneath. I bought the xxxxl and I would guess it to be an xl at best. Due to this I am only able to wear one thin layer under jacket. Opening zipper various amount regulates comfort better than my other jackets. sleeves & back of jacket plenty long. Front maybe a little short. Due to this probably would not wear this jacket around town running errands. But does well on the bike

            Comments about Santini Zapp Softshell Jacket:

            This is a good basic, classic Italian wind jacket, with the addition of more flexible wind panels and more modern fabrics than the wool and nylon of 30-40 years ago(Santini is an old company). The stitching and fabrics will probably hold up well. The wind panels do need to come all the way to the wrist, and the back pockets seem to come a bit too high for my 56 year-old arms to reach. Also, the wind panel on the back of the shoulders is too long and hot for my upright position(mostly on ramps and hoods).

              Comments about Santini Zapp Softshell Jacket:

              I purchased the large based on recommendations in the reviews, however the jacket is European cut and is true to size based on the size chart. After riding with the jacket a medium would've been a better Choice and would've fit my midsection better. The arm cuffs do seem a little long, But that lets me double layers over Glove cuffs. When layered with a thermal jersey the jacket should provide sufficient warm down to the 20-30* range.

              For reference I'm 5"11" tall168 lbs. with a 30" waist.
