Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous lightweight top quality jacket
This jacket is great to have on your bike (comes with attachable stuff-sack) or in your bag. I used it yesterday as my normal waterproof got soaked and hadn't dried out by home-time. My arms were a bit damp by the time I got home but the rest was dry. It's a great shape, the arms are really nice and long for once, so is the back. I'm normally a 10/12 top but bought a 14 based on other reviews - it fits perfectly, there is plenty fo room in the shoulders/chest but a 12 would have been too small on the hips. The cut and materials are really good quality - such a bargain (bought in sale!)am sure I will use it all year round, although not if it's really cold (i.e. below about 8 degrees).

I found this jacket to provide excellent protection from both wind and rain. I got stuck biking in pouring rain for almost an hour & the only part of me dry when I got home was what was protected by my jacket. Great for improving visibility as well (I got the yellow).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Very good jacket. This is the best choice for protection from the wind. But protection against water is bad. You can get wet, even in light rain. This jacket breathes well, takes up little space, and looks great. I like it a lot and wear it 3 seasons in a year.

Excellent, does the job. Breathable and more than shower resistant. Good fit. Very conveniently packs down very small (large appple sized) mesh bag which attaches nicely to bike. Lovely
