Foxwear E Vap Plus (Variations)

Has anyone bought a Foxwear E Vap Plus jacket? Can someone provide some feedback on this? What kind of weather would it be sufficient for? Can it be used in cold rainy weather?

I don't have this jacket but I have purchased several items from Lou over the yrs. The powershield tights are my favorite thing of his. Regardless the advantage of dealing with a custom clothing maker like Lou is that you can talk directly to the manufacturer, the same guy who is going to cut and sew your clothing.

Call Lou and ask him your questions. He won't steer you wrong.

+1, you can't go wrong with Foxwear - call! I don't have the evap but have a NeoShell jacket and just ordered pants, http://foxwear.net/clothing/rain-gear/. I don't know why he lists them as rain gear?! The jacket is the best piece of gear I've ever owned and I expect no less from the pants

This is my 3rd winter with Foxwear gear. I didn't care for the jacket for riding but is nice for other outdoor activity. I prefer the Showers Pass Elite 2. But everything else (socks, t-shirts, pants, tights)- I wear Lou's stuff every day. And I am car-free in Buffalo NY!

ordered a cycling vest and the long sleeve hooded shirt. lou was super nice on the phone and asked questions on how i would use the clothing. took exactly 2 weeks for me to get the package in the mail. they fit perfect, look great and the quality is remarkable. i will buy from lou again and often.
