Went Outside the Bike /REI jacket sources last winter, got a parka from a shop that sell work clothes,
Waterproof breathable fabric, neon Lime, with broad reflective stripes , ANSI safety gear pattern.
has a vent across the back so excess heat goes out, while riding..

Fully lined , so Its adding warmth also .. Chinese made [people forgot how to sew over here, I guess] for the Lacrosse brand.

Its good to be seen in the dark wet season, don't you agree?

Carradice is using a much brighter fabric for their pro route cape these days ... Neon Lime is In..
red firetrucks are last century..

OP is in Eugene , go to CAT,(1st, by the Butte) and check out their Cycle Rain Capes , made there ,
they are trying to retain some sewing skills
got a bunch of stuff from Burly's demise , the CoOp made good rain gear.,

their XL jacket I got is Way big , but that was all that was left on the rack [local dealer] when Burly CoOp declared bankruptcy. use the pants more.. also XL, but thats oK
