Rated 4 out of 5 by Jonathon Lightweight and keeps you dry
Does the job of keeping you dry and is lightweight and non-restrictive. Don't expect it to keep you warm, but it'll keep the heat in once you've warmed up with a bit of manic pedalling. It is quite thin and I'm sceptical about it surviving falling off or snagging on something but it survived a wet, windy and muddy ride down one of my local trails.

Rated 1 out of 5 by CRC101 Poor Quality
The zip on this jacket arrived faulty - I was very disappointed as I had expected to go riding as soon as it arrived.
Will be sending back to CRC. Would have been better off buying a cheap mac in a sack - essentially the same thing!

Rated 2 out of 5 by barneyisourhero Not very good
Jacket looks good, decent fit and packs up small.
I've had this since May and its been used in varying conditions. Utterly useless in anything more than a light drizzle. This leaks water from everywhere and you are wet within minutes if its moderately raining. As previous comment states that velcro cuffs have broken off after about 3 uses.
Would not recommend.
Also, what a pointless review from the person below who has just received it in the post and not even worn it out yet, would you review a meal before eating it or a film before watching it?
If you are looking for a decent lightweight waterproof jacket for riding, look elsewhere.

Jacket looks great, packs up small and thats about it.
My Velcro cuff links have broken off already and its far from waterproof!
Caught on the side of a hill blowing horizontal rain, no shelter for miles round, whack on the jacket and boom... soaked the the bone! id have been better wearing the emperors new clothes.
This jacket provides no waterproof ability, you will end up soaked and cold with in minutes. At this price it should provide some protection, disappointed is an understatement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Great water proof jacket
received this today on my break from work. this jacket is super light and thin, purely to stope you from getting wet but if the weather is cold you would need a fleece underneath.
the side pockets close with a velcro tab so not good pockets to store anything in. but the chest pocket is a zip pocket. the velcro tabs on the wrists are great and look like it will last a long time.
poured water over it from the shower and it ran straight off and will fit in your back pack very easily as it is super light weight.
