If anyone is after the Gorewear ShakeDry, Bike Discount in Germany, have medium and extra-large jackets. In black, of course.

I can never figure out why the most common rain gear colour in the shop is black! what a fabulous colour for those dark, wet days when you really need to be invisible to cars .

I agree 100%. I can only assume that they are targeting roadies who race.

Shakedry supposedly has some great properties. Apparently it can only be made in one color and maintain those properties. In any case they no longer make it in any color so what is stockpiled is all there is or will be.

I go with a simple Work Ready 3XXL, and let the excess bulk do all the ventilation for me. Nice bright colors and reflecting strips.
