- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: small
I'm stoked BD got a women's line, but they really need to work on their women's sizing. I feel like it's all over the place...sometimes I fit in a small, sometimes medium, once in a while even a large. It's pretty inconsistent. This jacket's a fair soft shell; it breathes, but you still can get hot and clammy because there's not enough venting options. I wish it had pit zips! All BD jackets don't seem to have enough pockets either...I'd love at least one internal pocket, 2 would be great! It does have the 2 internal drop pockets...but they don't zip/close and I'm always feeling like I'm going to lose whatever I put in there. Extra goggle lenses, chapstick...not enough spots to store what I need. It does what it says...repels light moisture and breathes, but no more...could use some improvements for sure. Just noticed this is listed as a "slim fit"...I would definitely not call it slim fit, athletic maybe? It's loose enough to move and not feel constricting.
