Commando Commuter Jacket
I purchased this jacket in September, 2010 and have used it five days a week since November. It has easily handled anything Northern California winter could dish out, including cold & freezing rain. The lycra cuffs keep the heat in and the zipper sleeve bottoms do a good job of keeping this thing from becoming an oven. Between this jacket and a Gore Thermo Jersey, I am toasty no matter what the weather.
I don't know if my jacket is a newer design than Zach's because my iPhone 4, even with a bumper installed, fits in the right sleeve media pocket without any problems at all. Plenty of room. (Apparently they heard you Zach). The iPhone also fits within the left front breast pocket. Very happy with this jacket.
urban jungle inspired
Combining the wicked tech of Gore Windstopper with some very ingenious design choices, you'll be hard-pressed to find a cycling jacket that's as well thought-out as the Cosmo. From the articulated sleeves, the thumb cuffs, easy zipper pulls (which can be grabbed even with mittens on), sleeve media pocket and internal cable routes, to the leather bite-patch just below the mouth, this jacket just screams of good design. The reflective piping along the sleeves and chest of the jacket are collectively a nice touch, but it's the dual reflective strips on the back of the jacket ( that positively explode when hit with a headlight. Badass.
Oh and the jacket is toasty as all hell. Combined with a good wicking layer, I've ridden in temperatures below 20 degrees and had to keep the pit zips open, in fear of overheating.While I'm stoked that this is the last cycling jacket I'll go through for the winter, nobody's perfect. Even with all the intelligent design that went into this, here are a few things I wish they'd first thought of:
* I'm 6.0, 155, and got a medium. Comfortably trim around the chest as it should be, and perfect arm length--so it's clear that I got the right size. However, the drop tail is nowhere near long enough for complete coverage.
* It's somewhat obvious that the jacket is commuter-inspired (the reflective stripes on the back are spaced as to avoid being obscured by a backpack), so how come the shoulders aren't reinforced? I'm worried my messenger pack is going to wear them down before too long.
* Right-sleeve media pocket and cable routes are perfect (the tiny integrated collar loop is brilliant), but what the crap kind of stone-age mp3 player was it designed for? Maybe the ugly gen II, but it barely fits a gen III iPod Nano, even at an angle. iPhone or iPod touch are a definitely no-go.

The Tool is designed to be a warmer jacket for off road riding while the Cosmo is designed to be a commuter jacketThe primary differences between the two are as follows: Tool is a slim fit while the Cosmo is a comfort fitTool has 3 pockets on the back and a chest pocket while the Cosmo has two front pockets, chest pocket, sleeve pocket for iPod, and a rear pocketCosmo has more reflective material on backCosmo has a bite patch for zipping up the jacket when pedalling and the Tool does notCosmo has Lycra inner sleeve cuffs with thumbhole and Tool does notTool has some ultrasonic seam welding while the Cosmo does notHope this helpsDave - GORE BIKE WEAR
