FILA 'bonded' jacket for light rain?
Today woot.com has FILA 'bonded' jackets
for what seems a pretty good price.
They say they have "Water and wind repellant bonded fabric". Here in San Diego, I get not many wet commuting days, and most of them are light 'spitting' rather than a true downpour, so I'm wondering whether this would work well?
Anybody know about these jackets, what is 'bonded' (is water repellant based on the weave, or a chemical that will wear off?), would they fit badly on drop bars?
CAVEAT: I fully understand this jacket is not waterPROOF; I am not looking for a true waterproof jacket, I am interested in this because it is cheap and it might boost my San diego stay-dry commuting percentage from 97% to 99%.
