Light and very water resistant
I have always found waterproof rain jackets to too hot and clammy and water resistant jackets to be not very resistant. This seems to be a very good balance. Wore it recently on a 3 hour ride which was windy, drizzly and rainy, sunny and overcast . The jacket performed very well. The two way zipper may seem like a small detail but is great at ventilating when you have a bit of rain- simply put your chest is covered while the lower part is open. If you're on the fence, this may be a good choice. I am 6'0 175 and the xlarge fits nicely over a long sleeved jersey.
