I'm 5' 9", female, and usually wear a size 13. I was looking for a larger/long/baggy jacket. I've already got 20 days of riding with it this season. It isn't the warmest jacket, but it is large enough to wear a hoodie underneath. No wet butt! and the sleeves are long, so no cold wrists! The red is bold & looks great with my black pants and new Seth Morrison red Oakleys.
