I live on the shores of lake Ontario in Western New York. Our winters are legendary. I need a water resistant, windproof outer shell that can breathe to keep me dry on the inside. The LG Seattle jacket is the solution! It has performed flawlessly! We've had a long hard winter and I've been riding all winter long! The hi-vis yellow color makes me feel safer in the urban traffic that comes with the territory around here. I have other jackets that fit my requirements but the LG Seattle is always my first choice!
