Rated 5 out of 5 Excellent jacket, very compact for carrying, essential really!
I am mostly a commuting cyclist - however I brought this jacket with me on a recent cycle from Mizen Head in Ireland to Malin head, and it turned out to be invaluable. Really easy to carry as you can fold it up to be quite a small size. On the third day of the cycle the rain was really bad, it was windy and cold also. I wore this jacket for the whole day and have to say it was great really did the job. And also it was really comfortable and light to wear. Would definitely recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous An essential item!!
I spent ages searching around for a decent waterproof jacket for a bit of protection from the British weather. Ideally you want a waterproof jacket that you can just slip into your back pocket when its not required. Thats where this Lusso jacket fits the bill. Its light and easily fits into a jersey pocket. Initialially I was a little put off by the price, as the fact it is significantly cheaper to similar products could suggest it doesnt perform well. I for one am very used to Campag gear, so I didnt expect a great deal from the jacket. However after using the jacket for a short ride of 15 miles, I can safely say it does what its supposed to and far exceeded my expectations. It is indeed waterproof, very vibrant in colour and windproof to a certain extent. However it is not all that breathable, as I found my arms were wet when I got home. To be fair, I would say its impossible for a product to be waterproof, windproof and breathable at the same time (even if they say it is!).
One minor point: I wouldn't suggest wearing it throughout a ride as it tends to trap moisture in the arm area but this isn't a problem really.
Bottom line is this jacket is a must. I would certainly recommend considering its price tag, definitely value for money!
