Versatile, great jacket
The sizing chart is misleading, as this jacket runs a little small. I was able to take the jacket I ordered into my local store and exchange it for a larger size on the spot. I usually wear a Large, but had to go up to an XL in this style.
It's a great all-weather jacket. The zip-out quilted liner makes it good for a cold morning while the zippered vents in the shoulder, back, and arms keep it from being stifling when it's warmer. Overall, I LOVE this jacket.

great jacket
This was my first jacket...3 years ago. I am still using it. In the hot 90-100 weather I open up the zipper a little and it let's even more air circulate in the jacet. I almost think this this jacket is cooler than my mesh. I ride in january as low as 35-40 and with the liner and the bilt freeze out under liners I keep pretty toasty. After 3 years of riding, (i commute 70 miles a day mostly freeway and almost all year long ) it's showing a little wear around the cuffs and the velcro is starting to loosen up. But i got at least another year in it.
I love that I can close the wrist as tight/or loose as I want. I also love that it comes down to your hips. Helps keep you covered. It has a sizable map pocket (fits my note 3 phone) .
all in all I love this jacket. I think they run a little big. I'm usually a med and I got a small. But i was able to try them on at the store. I'm about to get a new jacket (I've gained a little weight and this one won't fit with my layers) and instead of trying a different jacket, I'm just getting another one of these. I just wish it came in a lighter color.

Warm and Dry
Wore this jacket in a sideways downpour and stayed warm and dry for hours. It has a very comfortable fit too, so I didn't feel like I had a ton of gear on. Only had a thin long sleeve running shirt on under the Jacket. The temperature was in the 40's. It stands up to a Northwest rainy winter day. Love this jacket!

My wife likes it
I bought this for my wife because she refuses to buy things for herself. I had gotten her to try on a jacket at Cycle Gear, so I knew what size to order. This jacket is a little longer than her current on, which was something she wanted. This jacket is also a little tailored, her old jacket isn't. This one looks much better on her. She doesn't like solid pink or majority pink. The coloring on this one is just about perfect.

Great Jacket
I love the fit. It is a great warm weather jacket but the liner lets you move into the cooler temps just fine. It is very attractive and fits very well.

High quality, nice styling, and great fit at an excellent price!
After spending the day traveling to several dealerships and trying on several other brand jackets, my wife had not found anything that fit her the way she liked with the features she was looking for. She then suggested we return to Cycle Gear to see what they had in a colder weather textile jacket. She already has a Bilt mesh jacket for summer and loves it. She found this Bilt Tempest and knew right away that it is the one. This jacket fits just right with a flattering female taper in the middle and, unlike other brands, stays close to the body on the bottom and does not flare out. It has a full sleeve length removable quilted liner, is quality made, and fits perfect. She is 5'4" and medium average weight and the Medium is true to size and fits perfect. Body length comes down to middle/lower bottom. Sleeves are just a bit long s they should be, coming down just above the knuckles. This is a fairly heavy colder weather jacket for fall/winter/spring temps and this is what she bought it for. It will be too warm for summer as venting is limited-that is what a mesh jacket is for. She is thrilled with this jacket and highly recommends it.
**Hint** Catch it on sale : )
