Louis Garneau Geminix Jacket - 2010 BCS
Springtime isn't all lilacs and babbling brooks. In fact, if you're not prepared, the spastic weather can steal entire weekends of riding from you. The Louis Garneau Geminix Jacket will keep you ahead of the storm and in the saddle when the weather is less than ideal.
The Louis Garneau Geminix Jacket is constructed from a combination of WindDry 12k and Micro-Airdry EX fabrics. Both fabrics are lightweight and breathable, and provide consistent ventilation on cold days in the saddle. The front of the Geminix features a two-way reversed zipper, an inner flap, and a cycling-specific collar that work together to offer easy one-handed zips for ventilation. The fit is enhanced by elastic wristbands and a signature gripper at the bottom hem. These help keep the Geminix stay in place when the zippered back pocket is loaded with your multi-tool and energy bars. For night riding, Louis Garneau included reflective piping on the sleeves, and reflective logos on the front and rear of the jacket. The Geminix also features a designated MP3 player pocket.
The Louis Garneau Geminix Jacket is available in six sizes from X-Small to XX-Large, and in the colors Ginger, Royal Blue, and Yellow.
- Mini-light rubber tab for easy light attachment
- Front, two-way reversed zip with inner flap and chin guard for easy one-hand access and venting
- Signature hem gripper keeps jacket from riding up
- Front and back reflective logos and piping on sleeves for safe riding in low light
- Micro-Airdry EX fabric in key regions for optimal ventilation
- MP3-specific pocket for tune management

Does this have good wind protection? And how is it for winter weather?
I am looking at buying this as a gift for winter riding in the wind in 10-20 degree weather, and the windchill can easily make it below zero. He even said he wants to do a 100 mile ride when it is 0 degrees.
This brand also tends to run small- should I size up one or two sizes?

I just got this jacket this spring, and I really liked wearing it on colder rides (<45F). As it gets below 40F, I just add extra layers underneath, and it worked great to ~32F (didn't try below that).
I also bought one of the women's jackets for my wife, and she really likes it.
I have an XL, and I am 5'11", 190# with a 42" chest.
