I swear by SB, and this is no exception. Although thin, it IS completely windproof - something much appreciated in autumn & early winter. It's also pretty toasty, but it's not like you can wear it over a thermal and be good in the middle of January. Definitely a layering piece for riding, or for kicking around when the weather starts to cool. The only thing I don't particularly care for is how the torso isn't that long. But it's fitted snug, so it's not like it'll creep up a whole lot. The gray is a "cute" print ... I got this for its ability, not the pattern, but it's subtle.
