Having my first go at commuting. Its a 25k trip each leg. Im fine for the current weather, but as soon as the rain starts, im hosed.
I live Vancouver BC's suburbs, and was in mec on the weekend.
They basically have a chocie of 2 jackets
My work has no showers, so I cant do much more than change when i get to work, and then put the same back on when its time to return home.
So....would either of them do me for riding in pacific north west cold wet weather during the coming winter months ?
Anyone in the Vancouver area whos commutes year round ? If so what jacket have you liked and where did you get it
I have mec whirlwind pants, which are water repellant and windproof. I still need a good belaclave and some neoprene booties though. Oh and some good gloves for wet.
All suggestions welcome but mainly looking for stuff i can buy localy. Sugoi and Activa lines I can also find since they are made localy. I just dont know if i should go the expensive thick goretex route, or a thinner shell.
