Best lightweight rain jacket I've used - but I still sweat in it.
I've struggled to find a waterproof jacket that does not turn into a clam bake. This is the best combination of waterproof and breath-ability that I've found.
The jacket is definitely waterproof. I have an hour long commute and even in a full downpour my upper body does not get wet from the rain.
The jacket has good ventilation. The pit zips are in front and collect air fairly well. They could be a little bigger. I also like that the Velcro adjustment at the wrist. You can open up the wrist so that it vents air into your arm or you can shut it down to keep your arms warm. Nice feature. Typical back vent.
The jacket is roomy to allow for layering, it is windproof and it is thin enough to not impose a high insulation factor. Plus you can pack it into your jersey pocket when not in use.
It is lightweight, relatively breathable and well ventilated. However, a high tempo ride will still result in the dreaded clam bake, just not as bad as all the other jacket's you've tried. I don't think there is any waterproof jacket that will keep you dry on the inside. This is about as good as it gets.
Thank you for your feedback.
