Here's what others have to say...

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 love the versatility of this jacket and like the high visibility aspect of it. The optik is a must have for any cyclists wardrobe. The packability is great and while it's not water proof, it does help deflect light rain. This is my second Optik jacket. I'm glad to see that Pearl Izumi fixed the zipper and did away with the "reverse zipper" which was a major pain; no problems with the new model. The older version without the stretch panels actually seemed to fit a little better. The 2008 version fits my looser in the shoulders so I'm seem to get more of the "parachute effect" over both shoulders on fast descents. Otherwise, a great jacket!
