Great choice for a rainy climate

Reviewed by Rainy day commuter from Portland, OR on Saturday, December 8, 2012
I recently moved to Portland and needed some gear for bike commuting in the rain during the winter months. This jacket is the perfect outer layer for the rainy Northwest. The Gore Tex keeps me warm and dry in the rain, and the fleece lining around the collar is that extra bit of comfort and protection from the wind. The pit zips are great for ventilation on longer rides, and the hood is decently sized (not perfect) to fit over my bike helmet. I also love the velcro on the cuffs.

I purchased in cayenne, and it is a little brighter than I thought, but it turns out to be excellent for visibility on the road. The fit is flattering for a rain jacket, thought it does run a little large. I'm 5'6" and I usually wear a medium to get a comfortable fit in my hips and bust. I ordered a small based on other reviews, and it fits perfectly. The fit gets a little snug with my fuzzy fleece underneath, but works perfectly with a microfleece or other more fitted layers.
