Rated 5 out of 5 by JimmyP Finally a jacket that works
I have spent so much money over the last 8 years on jackets, from Santini to pearl Izumi. Every time I am disappointed as they cause me to become saturated from not breathing properly plus they all have limited waterproofing. This jacket however is completely breathable, I been out on 5 hour plus rides and came in dry as a bone. I wear it when it's cold over a freeze liner and its perfect. The breath ability is the best thing. The fit is nice, I am a medium and it allows a bit of room for a few layers. It seems expensive but when I think of all the rubbish I have bought over the years it's very cheap. This on really wet days or really cold windy days, I use the gabba for everything else spring autumn. Just means you can get out regardless of weather.
