I had the same experience when I tried the jacket on (in correct size and short length). Spent over 30 minutes in it in the store, sat on the bikes etc., and decided against it. Purchased the latest Rallye Pro suit instead. It's much cooler, softer, lighter, can be easily layered under, and is perfect for my 3-season riding here in PNW. Spent 3+ weeks in it on an Alaska trip, and am very happy.
