Its always an issue protecting and conserving hard earn body heat when going down hill or into winds with a wind chill factor that gets a mention on the weather forecast that day. Very long in the torso which is great if your anatomy resembles the body of a seven foot basketball player with stumpy legs ,the benefits being there is no way the lower back mooning will occur and even offers an extra seating comfort layer!. Does what its designed to do very well and although I am a New Zealand merino wearer at heart there is a time and a place for wearing this and leaving the wool behind. Even sheep seek shelter from strong cold winds to keep warm. Sue. New Zealand

Size comment: "True to size"
We've all seen pro cyclists stuffing newspapers under their jerseys before descending to combat the cold. This top uses wind stopper fabric to achieve the same effect. I have used it in conditions below 4 degrees centigrade on my commute to work as the only insulation under my Gabba and my Josette jerseys. It keeps my core very warm - noticeably warmer that just a merino base layer, It is a good snug fit and pleasingly long at the front and back to provide insulation well below waist level. I will be buying another. Recommended.

Craft's sizing is very Swedish, which means the size sets are very realistic, and not at all like the very small Italian brands. With Craft, a large is indeed a large. The only exception is the Elite range, which is a pure race fit, and which depending on your cycling style, one you may wish to size up for.
*For an accurate glove size, please measure around your palm, placing it flat and making sure to exclude the thumb (don't chop it off), then compare your measurement to the chart above. If it's a close call, go one size up or down depending on the result.
