    Hi guys,
    I’ve had the jacket a few months now and worn it half a dozen times and just wanted to let you know that I am seriously impressed. You’ve made a very good jacket.
    It looks great, feels great when worn and being light and having a slight stretch makes it very comfortable. The little design touches, like the pouch in the pocket are very handy for stopping items moving about when riding.
    The fit is spot on for me and it’s easily the best jacket I’ve bought. Looking to wearing it for a few years.
    Now you know all this already but I thought I’d let you know how pleased I am that I backed the campaign and how happy I am with my Neo.

    10/10 for packaging guys, don’t think I’ve ever had a jacket in a presentation box before.
    Haven’t tried it out yet but feels gorgeous. Fraser

    Seriously good jacket. Extremely breathable and waterproof. Amazing features and build quality to boot.

    (verified owner):

    When receiving the package and opening it, I became to smile, because the jacket was supplied in a very nice “luxurious” box, which increased the customer experience and helped justified the amount spend.

    I had some exchange with the people of Upper Downs about sizing and I ended up with an S size (1.89 – 75kg). The fit is good, especially around the shoulders and the arms, overall it could have been a little closer to the body. However, there is some more room around the hip section because of the lacking of a draw cord which results is some more room, especially on the back of the jacket. The material is very nice and the jacket is incredible light.

    I have worn it on my regular ride on Saturday, conditions were great to test it. Temperatures around 10 degrees, lot of wind and some light rain. The windproof factor of the jacket is great and the light rain was child’s play for the jacket, so very good.

    There is one point of concern, because the lack of a draw cord in the jacket (and probably my body), the wind was getting under the jacket (wasn’t wearing a backpack), which is a drawback because for the rest is the jacket is so nice. Maybe this could be fixed in next versions or added as a customer specific enhancement?

    Overall, the jacket is almost very good, the presentation is perfect but because of the missing draw cord, I have to give it 4 stars, because I can’t give 4,5 otherwise I would have done that.
