Great jacket, expensive but has the best fit.
breathes very well and funky reflective material makes you look like a cyberdyne systems model T1000 morphing into a bike at night!!

great jacket, get one.

PS: I have the all black version which is really functional. deos'nt strain as easily and you can't use strong detergent soaps with it and hand wash is prefered.

Assos Link

Great stuff, spendy (well...it *is* Swiss, right?) but it's great stuff. I don't have their jackets (Go Burley!!!) but I use a number of different kinds of their shorts/knickers.

ride carefully out there...we've got snow and ice everywhere...looks like we're going to have a cold winter/fall after a very hot summer!

Thanks for the link.

Currently I'm using a Land's End product:

http://www.landsend.com/cd/fp/prod/0...47887832184050

It's their Marinac and is not expensive at all. It seems to work good at blocking wind, and is very comfortable, but it's not as breathable as I would like. I've never had good luck with gore-tex type products and breathability.

Of course the Marinac doesn't make you look like a Cyberdyne systems model T1000.....
