- Divide Jacket
My first and hopefully only "meh" purchase from Pactimo. I had high hopes. Pretty well constructed, the fabrics are solid: thick, windblocking and water shedding on the vest front, a high neck and (hooray!) standard jersey type back pockets (hard to find on vests!) But the zipper is flimsy and cheap, and the vest is SO short that all but my most "aero/****" jerseys peek out by at least an inch and a half all around under the vest bottom. I can't wear it with shorts or tights, only bibs since they come up higher in front. I won't be able to wear it much and only decided to keep it as a chilly weather emergency back up if anything happens to my Castelli perfetto vest.
This is a great vest that definitely makes me more comfortable in cold weather, but definitely requires sizing up.
Our SoCal winter is not very cold! I used this vest during the winter to layer over my Divide Jacket, or by itself (as it gets warmer). I will probaby wear it under my Keystone jacket when we get to the colder days! Love this versitile vest. AND bonus - it has pockets!
This vest is money. Keeps your core warm with out over doing in the weight or flapping like other brands I have worn.
Ordered this vest for my wife. She is reliably a size medium in almost everything (not just bicycling attire). This vest was very tight all the way around. It is otherwise well made and good looking. She had concerns that the next size up would be too long (tall) for her, so we simply returned it for a refund. The return was handled quickly and without issue.
