C-Dale Morphis Shell <3
I purchased a C-Dale Morphis Shell a couple days ago. Wanted something I could wear as an outer layer that would block the wind and water resistant. Also wanted something I could wear in the afternoon as the day warms up.
The Morphis Shell is really nice. Yesterday in the morning, temperature was ~40F on my way to work. Very windy, and a light drizzle. The Morphis Shell worked great. Kept the wind and rain off of my body. I got a little warm, though I wore kind of a thicker base layer.
In the afternoon, temperature got up to a balmy 55F. This is where the Morphis Shell was awesome. The sleeves are attached to the rest of the jacket with magnets. I removed the sleeves and it made a great vest for the ride home. Kept my chest warm while letting my arms dissipate the heat generated from riding.
Today, on my ride into school, temperature was 46F. Wore a light base layer underneath the Morphis Shell and stayed at a fairly comfortable temperature. Started warming up near the end of my 3 mile ride though. Had it been longer, I might have taken the sleeves off.
Overall, a great jacket. A little pricey, paid $110 for it at REI. They only had the hi-viz yellow and blue moon colors on the racks. Grabbed the blue one in XL.
