Rated 4 out of 5 by Thesis Waterproof jacket that will keep you warm, but won't overheat.
Bought this jacket for commuting through the lovely (brutal) Chicago autumn/early winter. It is very waterproof and perfectly breathable. My commute is about 3.5 miles, and I ride fast. First ride was moderately windy at 32F/0C, and this jacket performed admirably with a waffle base layer and regular weight sweater, not a single shiver nor drop of sweat. Second ride was a downpour at about 40F/4C, dry as a bone. Hung it up to dry and put back on 20 minutes later as if it never rained. I am 6'2" @190lbs 32" waist, 34" inseam, very fit, and usually wear medium. I sized up to a Large so I could wear this jacket with 3+ layers when it gets colder. A medium may have been a better fit but I have no complaints, it looks great. The pockets really do warm hands. The collar is amazing, especially if you have a long beard. This jacket would deserve five stars if it had an inside pocket, and the mesh lining had additional weld points inside the sleeve.
