Menacing clouds are gathering overhead; reach into your back jersey pocket and whip out the ultra-light Hincapie Sportswear Women's Pocket Shell II Jacket. This shell's E5 Micro Ripstop fabric with a weather-resistant coating repels wind and light rain, while laser-cut ventilation ports ensure you don't get all clammy as you pedal like hell to beat the storm. Reflective elements help you stand out in the lowered light, and, should you get caught by the rain, the Lycra-bound hem, cuffs, and collar help keep the wet out. After your ride, stow the Pocket Shell II back in its zippered security back pocket and make sure it's on hand for the next time you need it.

Packs so small!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
The best thing about this jacket is that it packs so small! It zips into the pocket and is smaller than my fist.Great for tucking into your back pocket. I haven't tried it in the rain yet so I don't know just how waterproof it is (I live in England though, so it won't be long before I get an opportunity!) But it definitely adds a useful extra layer against the wind.
I have not wear this jacket yet but it is a light nice jacket, color appear to be more turquoise then topaz color. Recommended.
