Strength:

looks cool

Weakness:

It's about as waterproof as a cotton t-shirt. After a 15 min ride in a very light rain, I was drenched to the core. It's not very wind resistant either. The sleeves are too baggy, and it's heavier than it needs to be

This is essentially a worthless jacket for anything but a nice sunny day.

Strength:

light,small pack size,good fit,good looks

Weakness:

none so far.if you want a fully waterproof jacket don't buy this one,go for an aquanout.the rear vents maybe a litte on the large side.

afer 6 months use i'm really impressed with this jackets overall performance,i've been wet though after being cought in a heavy downpour,but light rain is repelled really easily.with a base layer underneath i can only describe this jacket as the perfect alldayer.
