Recently purchased this item as I was looking for a jacket that was not too bulky like a traditional ski jacket and could be worn in not too cold conditions. The Gate Racer fits the bill for me. The fit is a little close along the shoulders and sleeves, I guess to give it a sleeker look., which is fine. I would not recommend wearing anything too bulky underneath as it plays into the close fit of the jacket. The jacket is nice and warm and the detachable hood is a good addition. Couple of minuses: (1) the lack of internal pocket or pockets and (2) the hood is a little hard to adjust so it doesn't flop over your face obstructing your view. Would recommend it.
I would recommend this product.

I am really pleased with this purchase. I was looking for an even split between a full-on coat and the thinner softshell jackets that are so popular and this does the trick. It's light enough to wear in 40 degree temps but works equally well in much colder conditions especially with layering.
I hate to pull on a heavy coat in the morning and then have to lug it around and sweat in it once the temps warm up. This solves the problem.
Style wise, much like a suit coat, it has wider shoulders and a narrower waist which gives you a sleek look.
One thing it does not have is an interior pocket however the outside sleeve pocket is large enough for just about anything and maybe more convenient.
I would recommend this product.

Hi,
Thanks for the detailed review. My only question: How cold would you say this jacket is good for?
Thanks,
Andy
