Give Away Post

I have in my possession a brand-new (tags still on) women’s Pearl Izumi Optik cycling jacket, size medium. I no longer want to have this jacket in my possession.

I had, originally, purchased this jacket for myself. It is full of fanciness. It arrived in December. It didn’t fit. I put it in a box to return it. And then, a couple of days ago, I found it. Still in the box. The return tag firmly attached. And the date well out of range of the 60 day return policy.  I don’t feel like making a big deal out of it with the company, so I thought, what can I do with this jacket that won’t remind me that, short of a breast reduction, I can’t wear a size medium in this brand?

And so – I am giving it away.

There are three ways to get an entry.

Winner will drawn on Monday April 5 and announced on this blog. The winner will then have 48 hours to email me with a mailing address and then I will ship out their brand new jacket.

You can live anywhere that I can ship to (international entries allowed).

Only caveat – I am not a giant woman, although I am fairly well-endowed. I would guess that this jacket is on the smallish side of medium.
