Closeouts. You may not be riding to the top of the world, but why not look the part during training rides with the Canari's Everest cycling jacket? The stretch fabric is wind and water resistant, and a drawcord waist helps seal out cold air.

I was heading to the desert for some riding and realized that I didn't have a coat that was suitable for the low 50s, so I ordered this one. It was fabulous: a good, solid feel and considerable warmth without bulk. It is perfect for being on a bike. As a result, it is not so perfect for not being on a bike: it is cut short in front to avoid unwanted layers of material as you bend over, and long in the back to cover the break between jersey and shorts. The pockets are hands, something many biking coats seem to forget. This is a winner.

I purchased this jacket to wear for fall riding and hiking. I wore it last week at 42 degrees with just a wicking long sleeve base layer and a cotton turtle neck under. I was warm enough to enjoy the ride, I was a little cool on the first downhill at 35 mph, but warmed up immediately with an uphill and then I was comfortable for the next 20 miles. I did run into some light rain and it did not soak through. I like it, I just wish they would make a larger size for women, I had to buy a mans to get one big enough, I think the sleeves would be a little shorter if I could fit the womens sizes, but I just roll them up.

I was really surprised by the poor quality of this jacket. Cheap construction, cheap materials, bad design. The moment I took this out of the box, I was surprised with the poor quality edge stitching along the seams - a simple loop stich over the raw cut edges. No seam binding anywhere. Plus, the stitching was already frayed and snagged. The fabric felt like plastic, and yes, while it did stretch, it didn't breathe at all. Back pocket zippers were awkwardly placed, zipper closure at neck didn't line-up. Best, though, was the exterior stick-on patch pocket on the upper left sleeve was crooked and peeled half off when I tried the jacket on. I may have gotten a lemon in terms of the pocket, but that doesn't explain the otherwise unacceptable quality.
I'm relatively certain I'll never consider another product from this brand again. Return and refund.

I bought this to replace a very old PI Elite that's too long for me. Wore it, over an ultralight merino base and a loose-fitting polyester jersey (both short-sleeved), up an 8 mile 2% rail-trail; 35 minutes steady going on my 30 lb trail bike, temperature about 45F. With cuffs open and front about 1/4 zipped I was comfortable but the jacket lining got damp. On the next 14 miles of flats I zipped it to about 3/4. Drifting and softpedaling back down the 8-mi grade is where I always get chilled, but no problem this time with cuffs and zipper closed up. It doesn't breathe and scarcely ventilates but should be comfortable with a long-sleeve base layer below 45-50F unless you're working hard. Seems well made and based on the wind-blocking I expect it to be sufficiently water resistant for any snow or cold rain I expect to ride into, but I want breathability so I'm trying a Niagara. I'm what used to be average size, 182 cm and 70 kg and the fit is roomy in size M, but I'm sticking with M for the sleeve length and neck, which fit me well.
