- Product Review (submitted on October 16, 2008):
Well made and good attention to details (like all Aerostich products). It is very light weight compared to a Roadcrafter or Darrien. Almost like a super duty rain shell (that breaths). Its perfect for layering in the colder weather and is also outstanding in warm-hot temps with the thinner fabric and great venting. I also have the DL pants which are also excellent. The D.L. jacket and pants are perfect for me and the weather conditions in the Mid-West during riding season (cool-hot humid temps w/rain showers).
Sizing/fit notes - The sizing tool recommended an XXL, but it was way too big. I wear a 48R in the Roadcrafter and the D.L. XL was just right in the chest and arm length even with a polar fleece. For personal preference, I had 3" removed from the bottom to make it less skirted (more like a Roadcrafter jacket). The pockets are more shallow and I lost the bottom draw string, but it was easy/cheap for a local sewing shop to do without moving any zippers or major tear ups.
