I bought this jacket after my 686 Hydra jacket zipper broke (nothing against 686). I was looking for something with medium/light insulation, pockets that held everything I need when I don't have my backpack without getting too bulky, and ultimately something that looked great. I love the fitting, especially as someone who is too sticky to fit into slim cut clothing. It gives me all the room I need to layer and doesn't restrict me when I ride. The only thing I would change is move the belt loop hooks on the powder skirt lower for those of us who have longer torsos. Not a deal breaker at all. This jacket has been great so far and I'm pumped to take it on many more trips to come!
