- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I live in the PNW so it is always rainy. I tried on the hooded version at a local shop, but I am not one to wear a hood while riding. This hoodless version is exactly what I was lookin for. Keeps me dry when it 's raining out; it breathes quite well if you're not hammering too hard.
This jacket even looks chill to wear around town when not riding.
Size wise, I ordered both a medium and large. I am 6 foot 1 @ 165lbs. Ended up keeping the large since it is longer in the arms. The torso area is a bit looser, but I don't mind... The medium fit too much like a roadie jacket- not the fit/look I was going for.
Great jacket for the money. Then again, I got it when they were running a 50% off sale.
