Hey Andrew, that’s a tempting jacket you're describing. Strange that they call it 'waterproof' when the sleeves get soaked through, but your recommendation on breathability goes a long way. It can get sweaty in the woods in Goretex, even the Active version.  Did you get the Giro recommended size? L is stated there as 41'43", whats your chest measuremement dude?. A roadie cut is plainly super snug and that fit looks good on you. I was wondering about sizing up to give a bit more of an MTB fit and leave room for a thin fleece layer over the merino base too.  I'm about 38-40 so bang on for M which means L might suit. Have you looked at the Fox version, with vents and hood it seems a bit. more suited to our activities. You fellow NSMB journo A.J. seems to like it a lot - it’s a lot more costly tho!  Of course, I wonder how much the fabric relies on the inevitably "wash-off" DWR coating, which never seems to be fully replenished by spray on DWR's like Nikwax.  Thanks man, its that season.
