for Helium Jacket - CLOSEOUT by Sugoi (2 reviews)
This jacket is truly windproof despite the ultra-light fabric. Cycling downhill in a temperature of around 50 with just a lightweight jersey underneath, I actually stayed warm! Best of all, when it warms up this jacket seems to almost disappear when I stash in a pocket. Best to remove the jacket before overheating as the fabric can stick a little if your arms are damp with sweat. I'm 5'1" and am size 2 and the XS is slightly roomy but overall fits well.

Ohh, this jacket is SO light! This is the perfect jacket to stuff in my jersey pocket "just in case". It can scrunch up REALLY small.
I wore it on a 60 mile ride on Saturday and it was very comfortable. The zipper didn't stick, and the fabric was quiet in the wind. I even unzipped the jacket completely, and it didn't flap around noisily like some jackets do! I plan on taking this jacket on every ride, even on some springtime road races. The fabric is thin, so I am curious to see how it will hold up offroad when I crash into trees (?). Maybe I'll keep it on the road!
The jacket fits well except for the sleeve length. I wear a size XS and the sleeves are about 3 inches too short for my arms. Because I don't wear the jacket in very cold weather, the shorter sleeve doesn't bother me. I'm usually wearing gloves that cover part of my wrists. However, longer sleeves would improve the jacket. Except for the sleeve length, the jacket seems to be perfectly tailored for a cyclist.
