great shell, but could use some tweaks to make it excellent
4way stretch/durability is awesome. Fits great over my Leatt Airfit Body T and elbow pads. Makes my Baja S4 a 4-seasonable suite. 2 gripes and 1 nitpick GRIPE #1: Collar with hood inside is very thick. With a Leatt neck brace, it is almost too constrictive. Have to ride with the hood out of its pouch to make it work. Hood needs to be removable. If it was a tight/thin form fitted hoodie, would be able to fit under helmet and create a seal around the neck. GRIPE 2: Does not pack down very small at all. When I shed this layer, it takes up a lot of space in a pannier or Under a bungee net. NITPICK: When fully suited up over top the Baja S4 or Body armor, it is difficult to reach the zippers for the underarm vents to manipulate them on the fly. I typically have to stop and ask a friend to zip me up/down. By myself I'll have to take everything off, manipulate the zips, then put it back on.

I bought this to go with my Baja S4 Jacket and pants and I am impressed with it as a soft shell. I have ridden in light rain and cold mornings and it works well over the Baja S4. Size chart works well as I bought the same size as my jacket and it fits perfect. I am not a fan of the hood it is to bulky rolled up in the collar and occasionally hooks on my Sena. No need for a hood! Wrist closures seal well and the zips and drawstrings are easy. If your riding in this jacket off-road like I do, I wonder how well it will hold up in the occasional tuck and roll crash. All that being said I love the fit, feel and flex of this jacket and I would recommend buying it!
