What temperature range is this recommended for? Down to 2 degrees?
In the summer it was too hot in this jacket at around +26±3°C, I think. Worn on a short-sleeved jersey with sleeves removed, of course.
So I would rate it for -15..+25 as comfortable and for -25..-15/+25..+30 as, um, tolerable under certain conditions.
I can't compare, not having tried a Night Vision jacket, but I'd say that the Large fits me fine but is a little tight under the arms with the long sleeves on. I suspect that this is where the 'come up small' comments come from - the sleeve zip at the front takes away the 'give' from the fabric and makes them feel a bit tight. With the long sleeves off, it's a great fit.
Once I'm riding I don't notice the tightness, maybe when in position the problem goes away?
Try before you buy, I'd say - hope this helps!
On the plus side they are excellent quality and good wind proofing. As long as the temperature is above freezing you will only need a thin merino base layer underneath and still be toasty
