I totally scored and got this jacket for $125 when it was on sale 2 weeks ago. Wore it yesterday in a 40 minute downpour cycling home from work. My shoes were boats filled with water, my hair was wet under my helmet from the rain and water dripping in, and my arms and t-shirt underneath the jacket were BONE DRY! I am so impressed. Wasn't too hot, had the pit zips open. Will have to see how it does in the wash, but i have high hopes. The pic doesn't do justice to how wet i am.
