How thin are these? I mean I'm looking for as thin as possible waterproof or at least water resistant gloves. I would use them on my bike rides to work here in MN. They don't need to be the warmest things around but pretty thin so I could open zippers and dig into my pockets them on.Any thoughts if these would be the ones or would you recommend something else?

Grease stains on Gore-tex Pro shell jacket. How to get them off? I have Arcteryx Alpha LT that has some major grease stains that are not coming off with Granger's G-wash. When I got this jacket the previous owner tried to wash the grease stains with G-wash and they didn't come off. One local store that sells Arcteryx told me to try Shout Advanced Gel which I did on small area but that didn't help either.Is there anything I can do about this?I haven't tried Nikwax but would it even matter because jacket has been washed already without a luck?

How water resistance? I know this jacket is not 100% water resistant but how well it keeps water out. I bike to work (15min). If it rains, will it come through? Or how hard it needs to rain?I have Arcteryx Alpha LT (gore-tex pro shell) and it's too hot. Pro shell does not breathe as well as I would like it to. I tried Ascensionist on at local Patagonia store and I fell in love :-) Jacket was perfect cut for me.

I really tried to like this jacket but no. I'm 5'11" and size medium was perfect for me (sleeves, shoulders and chest were not too long, too loose or too tight, these were perfect). But jacket is just cut too short from the front. This is the reason I'm selling this and getting something else... haven't decided yet.

PLUS:
-light
-waterproof as Pro Shell should be.
-quality product

CONS:
-front is cut too short. It does not cover my belt buckle so all the shirts stick out and cold air comes in.
-baggy around belly area. If you have a large gut then this is good but remember the first con.
-expensive

Before you buy you should try it on and really pay attention to the front is cut.
