WTB: Lightly Insulated Jacket - S/M
« on: November 10, 2013, 05:00:11 PM »
No bigger than M or Euro size 3 and ugly as sin works just fine.  Purely for fast gravel or dirtier Winter group rides.  Nothing pretty unless it's cheap and nothing so cheap it won't hold up to daily use. 


For some effing reason it is proving impossible to find something between a windbreaker and rain or Winter coat coat.  Racers don't buy them and don't ride in cold.  The companies that make their kits are the only ones who see fit to produce them.  I've looked everywhere I can think to find one new and resorted to begging for used on the interwebs. 


This jacket I was unable to secure should provide a decent reference what I'm after.  Just enough insulation and windproofing to not sweat myself into hypothermia but not a parka or completely rainproof.  Hell, if you have a matching vest like in the photo I might take that too.

I have a LG Jacket from 2009, matches this kit, black red grey) probably large though.  I've hardly worn it.

If it is 20" or less pit to pit I'd be interested as long as you don't rape me on the price.

LG sounds much better than Champ Sys.

I don't have any jackets, but if you're looking for SM I need to know which city.

Small
Medium


Not S&M. 


"Smell the jacket" was highly considered when I edited the title.

I believe I have one of these http://www.amazon.com/Gore-Windstopper-Shell-Jacket-Medium/dp/B006URB5F6

in red, medium, if you want. I like it, but with team stuff and weather here I never ever ever will use it again.

LG is better than champsys, my jacket is large, which is 42 pit to pit, it's even big on my, if you can believe that  :P   And I would just give it to you, it's just hanging in my cycling closet.  IDK, maybe I will wear it this winter, but I much prefer long sleeves and a vest, when it's below 30 I ride inside, too old for that bs.

Is that top picture a softshell? It almost looks more like a long sleeve jersey than an actual jacket to me.

WC, think half that and then subtract a few more inches.   :)

Unless something falls into my lap I'm done looking.


Wens, without getting into this too deeply I'll offer and explanation.  I begged and badgered Rapha, among other brands, and my local store to please please PLEASE offer the stuff SKY requested which differs greatly from their pro team line.  Everything is thinner; fabrics, cuts, features, everything.  Being very skinny I well understand why they requested so much of what they did.  It is very similar to the design of serious mountaineering kit which can't be easily removed in motion either. 


Just for reference this is practically the same as that Ritte jacket's design intent.  Unreasonably thin for the conditions it is intended to be worn in with just a Summer jersey and mesh baselayer underneath.  Made so there is room for nothing thicker.  If you guessed that was custom sewn for that pro and won't fit me you caught why I didn't just buy that.

find something you like for a basis.


find a tailor to do $20 of alterations.

I made a mess of it a little, but I took a PI vest and just starting hacking on it with the sewing machine. I will learn to sew better eventually, and in the meantime I have something less annoying to wear.

Yeah whoops, I was working and reading SC at the same time.  Chest size is 42 so I guess 21.

Something(s) fell.  Specifically, these became unexpectedly available again.
