Bought this jacket for autumn and winter training in Connecticut. So far I've been wearing it in both cold and rainy weather - without complaint. This jacket is lightweight, wind and partly water resistant on the front (I guess you could feel some water go through if it's pouring down!). It fits very well - not too tight as it is a winter jacket, not too lose either so it catches the wind. It'll keep you warm even below freezing if you wear a long sleeved under Armour and or a cycling jersey. Back pockets are easy to access, open and close. I have no regrets what so ever about this jacket - only smiles. Buy this jacket if you need something to keep you warm while you're out there enjoying the winter roads.
