A very underrated jacket

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I received this jacket as a gift and threw it in a draw not be thought of for months. That was a mistake on my behalf. By chance I took this jacket with me to a Gran Fondo in NYC because I remembered how cold it was at the start the previous year. Thankfully I had this jacket because it rained ... not just at the start... but during the whole event and this jacket helped keep me somewhat dry for a while. I am wearing it in my profile picture which was taken at the end of the fondo.

The fit is not as race fit as some other Capo products. Which is great if you are wearing layers. I found it did a great job at keeping the wind out. While it did not keep me dry the entire time I rode in the Gran Fondo, it did a much better job than I thought it would. The jacket packs down nice and small into a little zippered pocket that you can throw into a jersey pocket. I've washed this jacket several times and it always comes out of the washer looking like new.
