Voler Question(4 posts)

I have a few pair of Voler's shorts/bibs that I bought after seeing excellent reviews on this board, and they are fantastic. Now that it is getting chilly out for my morning rides, I am looking about for a reasonably priced wind jacket. I noticed that Voler has one: http://www.velowear.com/store/prodinfo.asp?number=101089&variation=&aitem=3&mitem=16

Has anyone had any experience with thier windbreakers? If not, I will also take suggestions for other brands.
Thanks in advance.

The voler windbreakers are pretty nice. The sizing is really goofy though. I would order small, all of my voler team gear is XL and fits great, but the jacket is XL as well and the arms are a foot longer than they need to be. They are really good about returning stuff so I wouldn't worry about it too much.
Love the shorts, do not like the wind vest.Alex-in-Evanston

I think the wind vest is a cheap little puppy with a dumb zipper design. It zips up or down, so you can ventilate your belly and keep your chest zipped. Unfortunately, I can't keep it zipped tight at the bottom. I don't wear mine any more.

It is okay, no probs with the zipper, venting on the side. I also have a PI jacket that the sleeves zip off and make it a vest, very usable piece of gear. Venting can be at the pits, always in the back, or zip off the sleeves to modify temp even further
