Pretty good jacket

Lightweight and packable (much moreso than my Pearl Izumi WXB Barrier rain jacket) and it does shed light rain (I have yet to use it in heavy rain). The fit around the body is nice and snug but I found the sleeves to be very big and loose on me so it does flap in the wind quite a bit. I also find that when I am pushing hard, I get soaking wet under the jacket so I was a bit disappointed in the breathability, although I'd suspect it is more breathable than some other rain jackets out there. Price is a bit steep in my opinion.

I've decided to send the jacket back. I've done a few more rides in dry conditions and the breathability is not to my liking. I've used the jacket for some cool descents and my jersey gets absolutely soaking wet underneath. I'm going back to my Pearl Izumi optic jacket.
