How to measure for Gerbing Jackets and Vests properly:
The measuring process is very important and will help make sure you order the correct size. The tape measure should fit snugly against the body. Remember, any Gerbing liner is meant to be worn under outerwear clothing.
Chest - Measure around the fullest area of the chest, holding tape firm and level. Hold arms out, place tape, drop arms and record measurement.
Waist - Measure loosely at your natural waistline, typically above your beltline and closer to your bellybutton.
Hips - Measure around the fullest part of seat while standing and while sitting. Record the higher number.
Outseam - Measure from the top of the waistband to the bottom of the ankle, remember pants and pant liners will lose some length when in the sitting or riding position.
Sleeve Length - Measure from the top of the shoulder bone to the bottom of the wrist bone. Measure both arms as one arm may be longer than the other.

I used it for the first time on a cross country ride from Atlanta to Phoenix in January. Of course there was a cold snap. One morning when I started out it was 29 degrees. The vest kept me warm and cozy. The vest, when I zipped it all the way up, covered my neck. And there are heating elements in the part of the vest that covered my neck. Talk about warm! And the neck area is the part that I feel warm up right away so I know everything is plugged in and functioning in a matter of seconds. Great product.
ProsVest covers the neck with heating elements to keep that crucial area warm.
