Iím looking for a new jacket to ride with for the fall and milder winter days. The windbreaker Iím currently using has fleece lined cuffs, neck and waist. Itís very comfortable, and I like it a lot. Problems are
1) Doesnít stow into itself. This means when I store it in a water bottle cage, over time some part works its way out and flaps my leg or gets too close to the chain rings.
2) Itís black, with no reflective stuff. Not exactly ideal for nighttime commuting, which will be one of this jackets primary uses.
3) No rear pocket or cell pocket. I end up with my phone/mp3 player in my pants pocket, which is workable but not ideal. I donít really have anywhere comfortable to put much else. I'd say cell phone pocket is an optional bonus, rear pocket is a must.
4) A tad short on the rear. Not surprising, since itís not a cycling jacket.
Iím not too concerned with breathability, more wind and water resistance. When I get too hot Iíll take it off, stow it in itself and jam it in an unused water bottle cage.
Any suggestions? Anything to stay away from?
