This is a solid jacket for everyday casual riding but doesn't have the tech features to stand out from the crowd. The jacket has a loose cut which allows for layering on cold days but with this in mind it fits true to size. The arms are long enough for most but a little on the short side for those like me with lenghty arms. The drop tail isn't that long but works well enough.
The Versa Barrier jacket primarily blocks the wind and a little water but it's not a rain jacket. It also isn't especially breathable for use in long hard efforts and isn't packable to keep in your bag for emergencies. The jacket's features are minimal but are for the most part well done and seem durable. The hood doesn't flap around when riding, reflective accents are present but unobtrusive, The lining is comfortable, not clammy on bare skin, hand pockets are large, and the zipper is two-way for ventilation.
My biggest complaints are the lack of velcro or elastic at the wrist and lack of drawstring at the bottom hem, both of which allow cold air in. There are no pit zips or chest vents for ventilation and the minimal gloves seem gimmicky but I'll probably appreciate them when I loose my main gloves and have to ride home. A black back would be better for hiding road spray on damp days.
Overall for the price the jacket is decent and reliable, not frilly but it's a commuting jacket that can easily be used off the bike.
