  1. Hey Guys,

    I saw this on a bargains website i visit and thought some other people on here might be interested. Seems pretty cheap for a Waterproof riding jacket.


  2. Wear it to the pub, not on your bike.
  3. I wouldn't buy one (mainly because it's fugly), but given that is has CE armour, I don't see why it's any less suitable than the majority of textile jackets, as long as you're aware that it won't hold up as well in a slide as leather. Also, given how ugly it is, I would have thought that it would be far LESS suitable for wearing to the pub than on the bike.
  4. It looks a little short in the torso for dedicated rainwear and 'ventilation' probably means zips which may leak a bit in prolonged rain.
    Most likely ok for the commute.
    Doesn't matter what it looks like as no one will see it. You're on a bike.
