The perfect garment for light rain and wind. Featuring Race Face's proprietary Aqualite material, this jacket is highly breathable and water repellent. New accents on the midriff give this jacket some swinger appeal. Cordura(r) elbows, lots of reflective striping and piping, raglan sleeves. All new "Vertical Access" cargo pocket on the rear. Single-hand draw-cord pulls, fleece lined collar, 10" pit zips, and custom zipper pulls.

Strengths: looks cool
Weaknesses: It's about as waterproof as a cotton t-shirt. After a 15 min ride in a very light rain, I was drenched to the core. It's not very wind resistant either. The sleeves are too baggy, and it's heavier than it needs to be
This is essentially a worthless jacket for anything but a nice sunny day.
Weaknesses: none so far.if you want a fully waterproof jacket don't buy this one,go for an aquanout.the rear vents maybe a litte on the large side.
afer 6 months use i'm really impressed with this jackets overall performance,i've been wet though after being cought in a heavy downpour,but light rain is repelled really easily.with a base layer underneath i can only describe this jacket as the perfect alldayer.
