I live on the Olympic Peninsula of WA state where we get plenty of rain showers. I am in a ride group of cyclists who bike three to four times a week year round rain or shine. About half of the 16-20 riders have this Jacket. I just had to have one also. It keeps me dry, is breatheable, fits well ( 5' 2 120 female) size M, room enough for wool base layer and light fleece.
The only downside is that it does not have an attached rain hood, and the hood is extra. It is a spendy jacket but worth it right now as it is new and I really baby it. Time will tell if it holds up in the long run. I do extended bike touring so will see how it holds up being taken in and out of paineers. I carefully roll it and put it in a cloth bag to prevent wear shoving it into a pack.
Would like to hear from other users about how often they wash theirs. Solution used, and any spray used afterwards?
Thank you for your feedback.
