Does anyone have the Respiro jacket or experience of the SG0.6 fabric? I've bought the Respiro for Mr A and it is a lovely looking jacket but seems really thin. It's supposed to be good from 7 degrees, so not full-on winter, but even so, there is no fleece lining on the front - only on the back. I read that the SG0.6 fabric is super-lightweight and I guess it must be windproof on the front. I just wondered if anyone has one and how they have found it for warmth.

    I have a Legarezza which has the same fabric - I would rate it a spring/autumn garment, needing an additional mid-layer to give it 4-season warmth. What it does mean is having extra flexibility
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..
