Rated 4 out of 5 by Willmac Procey, but does everything just right
Kept me dry and then the jacket dried off super-quickly. Very breathable - as advertised, but I've yet to figure out how to optimise carrying it, as it doesn't pack up super-small

Rated 5 out of 5 by Slatanic 1 good jacket is better than 4 bad ones
There's no doubt this is an expensive purchase & I thought long & hard about getting it. I couldn't see how any jacket was worth this kind of money. Anyway I got a rush of blood & went for it.
Saturday was apocalyptic. Storm force winds, driving rain & 5 degrees (Felt like -5) With a base layer / gabba jacket & the pocket liner jacket I got home snug & dry after 85km. I was out again yesterday (3 degrees & showers - no winds) with the same gear & was comfy after 155km. Not too hot or cold. Any time I felt like I was getting too warm (On climbs) I opened the vents (Easy to access at the sides) & cooled down nicely. Jacket is very breathable & I would definitely recommend it if alot of your cycling is in the rain. The gabba is ideal for showery conditions for a few hours & the pocket liner for all day rain stuff (In surprising comfort) You will get it into a jersey pocket with a squeeze. Size wise I'm a medium & this jackets fits perfectly as a medium. I was advised to get a large but medium is perfect.

I have had this jacket for a couple of months now, during this period it has travelled from John O Groats to Lands End. I have always remained dry when it has rained and easy to fold up into a back pocket , also very lightweight, vents are very useful as you start to get warm, at the end of the day you get what you pay for.
