    Good start? Pearl Izumi Catch Bike Jacket

    I am in the market for a decent jacket for winter. I was expecting to pay about $100, but came across this one from rei:

    Pearl Izumi Catch Bike Jacket


    Regular $120, now $66.93, minus a 20% off coupon too-->$52.00. Anybody have this jacket (or similar). It is Pearl Izumi, which seems to be quality (don't own any of it yet, I'm pretty thrifty!).

    Worthwhile for winter commuting?

    Bump (sorry). I have to buy this jacket soon, and can't find much info on it through searching. I live in Canada and plan on going to pick it up next weekend (our Thanksgiving) so I'd have to order it today.

    Thanks everyone!

    I would like some opinions on this jacket as well. Somebody has to own it!

    I like the style, and the fact that it says water/wind resistant rather than water/wind proof makes me think it should be fairly breathable. I wish it had pit zips though.
