Blackbottoms Jacket Review
I had a chance to ride with this jacket today in steady rain and have a couple of observations. There is one major flaw to this being a true rain jacket: there is no flap on the front for the zipper, and the zipper does leak. I rode for about 20-25 minutes in steady rain (not heavy, and no real wind), and while my arms and back actually stayed very dry, I got wet on my chest and stomach because of the zipper leaking. That would also mean, I suppose, that you would get air in as well through the zipper so that might not make it ideal for cold weather riding either. Although I tend to think it might help it to breathe a bit and not be all that bad except in real cold winter type temps. I actually still like it, and at $20.09 I can't really complain too much. Just wanted to point this out to anyone who takes a look at the jacket.
