Note: I posted this over at the Commuting Forum, and it was suggested that I place it here as well....
I've been looking for an all purpose cycling jacket - rain / winter, commuting/club rides. most folks here seem to endorse the Showers Pass Elite, but thats a bit too pricey for me. Can anyone share thier experiences with the Showers Pass Club Pro ($100), or Double Century ($125)?? Waterproof is a key factor for me, and I understand that with waterproof there is a tradeoff with breathability; so the venilation factor is key. The Showers Pass linup seems to offer alot of venilation in most all their designs.
Also - I've used Pear Izumi stuff and were looking at thier recent lineup, but they don't seem to have the level of venilation built into their design... am I missing something on this for PI??
I appreciate your input on any real-world field tests on these products. Thanks!!
