This jacket is my go to jacket

Reviewed by Jimmy the night rider from Sebastopol, CA on Friday, July 8, 2016
Love this jacket. Wear it almost everyday. I have only ridden in the spring and summer mornings with this so far and I am loving it (close to freezing). Probably worn it a hundred times so far. It is rated to freezing and I think layering would be in order at that temperature. Right now I wear a medium weight wool blend base layer and this jacket and it seems to be perfect. Plus wool keeps you warm wet. Let's face it, on a bike you are either cold or wet or both. This jacket does have breathing panels that let some moisture out. I got caught in a downpour and was throughly soaked wearing this with no rain jacket over it. During misty mornings and sprinkle days (4AM) this jacket is great for water protection. It is also the bomb for wind protection although the breathing panels do let some cold in when the temperature drops. Probably need to waterproof it prior to this winter, and carry a rain jacket for just in case. This jacket was on some kinda clearance price when I bought it and I wish I would bought two, or more. Nobody even comes close to STP's pricing if you catch it right (I've checked). Seems high quality though and should last for years. I am a fat boy at 5'10" and 200lbs and the large seems a little big but does leave room for layering. Medium would be great for summer mornings, large for winter. Thanks STP.
