Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Great breathability for 100€ hardshell
I'd call this waterproof. Haven't tried standing in pouring rain for hours, but had no problems with occasional showers when commuting or on trails. Breathability is suprisingly good in this price range.
It's a great jacket, not only for rainy days, but also as a wind stopper with just a short sleeved shirt underneath. Im also using this as outer layer during winter, works perfectly. Looks decent too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Considerably good jacket
Bought this one for 114 bucks on janruary sale. And I can say that it totaly worth this money. Original price is 220 and I think it is a little bit pricey, but 114 bucks is decent price.
First of all it definitely stops wind.
It was said in previous review that it is not waterproof and I can not disagree more, the jacket is waterproof. Tested it during some heavy rains and snow and the jacket kept me dry.
Also material is quite good - the jacket survived few crashes.
Great jacket for everyone who wants to be kept dry and protection from chilly wind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous You would be quick to dismiss this jacket as it has no GORE-TEX or eVent logo. The price tag doesn't do much to help. But don't be to hasty, this is an excellent jacket. If you're after a jacket that looks good, and you don't want to look like an XC whippet or some daft roadie, then this is well worth a look. Slightly on the generous size, go for a size lower. I'm usually XL, but a Lrg was more than enough. Not much in the way of features, but that's good! I don't faff with a jacket. Put it on, adjust, away you go. Two side pockets is all you need for keys and chocky bar. Breast pocket holds your Mp3 player or iPhone (if you're a nob). It does feel like a suede baloon as it's stretchy and rubbery, but it breaths well and keeps water out extremely well, with only slight moisture on the inside after a big ride. Hood is big enough to cope with a technical issue in our brilliant weather. This will keep you fairly warm and cool but you won't over heat. Get one, you'll be suprised.
