My one issue is the fit. I noticed it more with the pullover, but the gillet has it too. It's designed to be somewhat form-fitting, but that makes assumptions about how women are built - that they're all basically the same. If I zip up the gillet, I have to pull the body down firmly for my chest to be where the designers think it should be. (Yeah, age and gravity have done their work!) Again, this was *much more* noticeable in the pullover.
Overall I strongly recommend this product.

As the GREAT staff at the Redding, CA shop pointed out, it is meant as a liner. But it's so good as outerwear in medium-warm to cool conditions (sans armor--but when I strip down to a tank top or T-shirt, that is as well), it's worth throwing in the bags as an option.
And it will be superb for middle of the winter, bone-numbing cold rides under my weatherproof MC jacket.
