Extremely Lightweight
4 5

Great for the very hottest of days but maybe not the best choice for days that start off cool and get hot in the afternoon. The wind goes right thru it. It's almost like not wearing a jersey at all so don't expect much in terms of sun protection either.This jersey is completely see thru, especially the white version. The material is so light that if you load your rear pockets it does cause it to stretch and sag a bit in back, despite their claims. By far the lightest and coolest jersey I own, but almost too much so. Jury is still out on this one...

First use was on a day that had everything weather wise with temps in the mid 40's, occasional torrential downpors, hail, wind, sun, more rain, more sun, etc for over 3 hours. It performed remarkably well. I had a mid-weight long sleeve Smartwool base layer under it and used the Nanoflex arm and knee warmers with rain booties. I was comfortable the whole ride. It is NOT waterproof so don't expect water to stay out. What it does however is let you remain warm and "dry feeling" despite whats going on outside. I saw several groups and all had rain jackets, some flapping in the wind or unzipped with sleeves pushed up when the sun came out. I did nothing but pedal and smile with no adjustemts needed. I have the black but I'm ordering the white after I post this. I love this garment!

I'm 5'11", 160 and the medium fits well. It does a great job of blocking the wind on cool mornings in the 50-65 degree range. When it's sunny and 70, it starts to get a little too warm and the only option is to take it off, which I've avoided so far but have been tempted. A vest is more practical but I still think this is a nice piece to have, especially if you want to show off a jersey and not cover it up with a vest.

Great rain jacket! I really like this one. Have had others by Showers Pass, Craft, Hind, Castelli and this is the best. Wore it a few times now, last one on a 3 hour ride in 45 degree temp. I stayed pretty dry and definitely didn't over heat or get cold. Two way zipper and pit zips are great. Got the white one so it's visible yet has style points.

Seems perfect. Zipper works great contrary to others complaint. High collar that is lined, Material is medium weight, not the heavier wind block stuff nor a see through vest. Two mesh pockets and easy access to your jersey pockets are nice. Form fitting (I got a med-I'm 5'11", 165) with only minor wind flap near the shoulders on a at 40 mph decent. Overall, a great vest!

It does what it's suppose to. After three camping trips I've grilled salmon, steak, corn, asparagus, etc...and they all came out great. The burned works well too. It's perfect for 2, maybe 3 adults, but the grill space is too small for a family. There is a small drain hole for grease and a 3x4 tray under the hole that slides in and out to empty the grease. I imagine if you cooked fatty meats like burgers, you'd have to keep an eye on the grease trap or it could quickly fill up.
It's kinda cheaply made so I don't know how well its going to hold up over time but so far I'm very happy with it.
