Gettnig my new jacket tomorrow.

I bought one of those Performance Illuminite Commuter jackets in red. Had it delivered to the loca PBS, and picking it up tomorrow.

I hope it turns out to be a decent buy, since I got it for only $75.

Of course, it's gotta be better than my cheap single layer Nashbar nylon shell I've been using for 3 years now. It's not even waterproof for all the rain we get up here.

I have the old version with the pit zips and the matching pants. I wore them with a baselayer underneath all winter commuting in Minnesota, and only had to add a fleece vest for sub-zero temperatures.

I hope you're as happy as I have been with it.
