Great rain/wind jacket!

After spending the last month researching rain/wind jackets, I honed in on the Hincapie Elemental jacket. I'm 6'3"/200 lbs and the XL fit is spot on. The jacket is not baggy and I do not foresee parts of the jacket "flapping in the wind" going down hill or in cross winds. I really like the high collar on this jacket and the sealed pocket on the back is a nice bonus. The material is of very high quality and will hold up very well to use and abuse. I plan on using this jacket for cooler fall/spring rides and to keep in my jersey pocket during those summer rides when you might get stuck out in a storm. This jacket is VERY lightweight and VERY compressible. I've been extremely happy with the many Hincapie cycling items I own and this jacket was a great addition. I think anyone would be happy with purchasing the Elemental jacket. I went with the black jacket with red stitching, with IMO looks pretty sweet.
