O2 3flow Jacket, anybody have one?

I'm looking for a wet weather jacket for this winter. Found this online and the price fits my meager budget.

Sounds good. I'm just looking for anyone who can give me some feedback or offer up a review of sorts.

Thanks in advance!

BTW, if you can suggest an alternative in the sub 100$ range I would appreciate it.

I used that same jacket, except in bright yellow, on my West Coast Tour from Vancouver to Mexico. Worked fine. It now has lots of stains and lots of miles on it and still keeps me dry. My only complaint is that since I am skinny the extra material on the arms flap around a lot in the wind. Hardly a problem really. I paid $40 for it on sale at the local LBS because I bought it in the summer . By the way, my tour was from September to December so you can imagine we had many many rainy days.

I have one and love it. I don't know how the breathability would hold up in Texas, but I rarely overheat in Minnesota with this jacket. Very hi-vis (the yellow), and it makes for a nice shell in the winter as well.

Haven't used that one, but I use the 02 rain jacket and rain pants (even less expensive) and they are great for keeping out the water. Not extremely breathable so they can get warm, but I've been in downpours and my clothes stay dry.

Thanks for the input guys! I don't hear much about this jacket, but it sounds great and the price is fantastic.

Think I'll be placing an order for one soon.
