Anything once....most things twice....and if we really like it, we'll make it a habit.

The Marmot Cauldron satisfies the cold & wind requirements but is a bit more than your budget amount. BTW, bc.com has free shipping on this item which is some consolation. It's definitely worth the few extra beans. The Mountain Hardwear Epic is a good choice too. It's a good price, water- and windproof, and light. The only issue might be the temperature (5 is cold) but if you're moving around, it should do great.The TNF Apex Bionic would be a great choice in this case. It has a DWR finish and sheds most rain/snow very well. It blocks a lot more wind that a standard fleece jacket as well, but still regulates temprature. If you catch a clearance color you can come close to meeting your $100 budget as well.

No. HyVent is waterproof/windproof material found in many TNF coats. This product is a fleece and is not windproof nor waterproof. It's main purpose is as a midlayer under a waterproof shell.The question was "compatible", not "comparable". Hopefully folks ordering from a website such as this and posting on the board are fully aware that fleece and HyVent are two completely different materials. Since as of now I have neither a HyVent shell that is zip-in compatible, nor a Khumbu fleece, I can't speak to the "compatibility".

I literally changed out the bike mount from my old one to this one in 15 minutes and the bike goes on in seconds. Close the clamp, lock it, strap the rear tire and your off. I've seen reviews that this model has a design flaw, but I haven't had any issues. My box was marked as Jul '08 date of manufacture and I purchased in July, so just be sure you get a new one.
