by fromZipper makes it nonfunctional The main zipper on this jacket is the pits! Its not just when riding a bike that it is a problem. With both feet on the ground and using both hands, the zipper can become jammed and impossible to operate. Avoid this jacket!

by fromA little disappointed After using this very briefly, I was disappointed on several counts and I "traded up" to the Pearl Izumi Vagabond. I bike to work every morning in Boise - typical morning temps in the spring are high 30's / low 40's and I wear the jacket usually with just a long-sleeve t-shirt or light base layer underneath the jacket. The Canari fell short in a few areas: - The material wasn't very water resistant. It easily soaked through - When I bought it I knew it didn't have the front chest pocket, but I really missed it. I feel this pocket is essential for biking. - The sleeves ran long and bunched up pretty bad around my arms, restricting ventilation Pros on the canari - bright color and it rolls up real small to fit into your pack. Although the Vagabond is a bit higher price point, I am very happy I traded up - the material repels water better and it is just a tad thicker, making it more wind resistant.

by fromAdequate I bought this as a layer for colder days, when a jersey alone does not do it. I had hoped that it would work well as a wind-break while remaining breathable. It is not breathable enough for strenuous cycling, and serves as a moisture barrier rather than wicking. The ideal combo would be a hard front shell (nylon), with a soft shell back panel. Alas. Additionally, I consider it to commit the most heinous of bike-jacket sins: the sleeves are too short. Otherwise, an adequate layer.

by fromYou will be Seen This is definitely a warm jacket that will keep you protected from wind and cold and mild rain, BUT.....as the temperatures climb (50deg or more) and your activity level climbs, you will become keenly aware of the lack of breathability of this jacket. Case in point, I wore this jacket over a light long sleeve base layer in 50 deg weather for a light run (~4 miles). The inside of the jacket was wet and clammy at the end of the run. I have also worn this jacket for harder runs and have had moisture dripping out of the sleeves. I think I will reserve this jacket for cycling only, on colder days when I'm out for an easy ride.

by fromNice windbreaker but expect to get wet I commute everyday and everyday I wear this jacket. It does a great job as a windbreaker and has excellent visibility. It also has good pockets on both sides and also a large pocket in the back. The jacket also compressed to a nice small ball if you want to take it off quickly. The major problem with this jacket is that it does not keep out the rain at all. Expect to get wet if you wear this in the rain. It seems to soak up water much quicker than other jackets I've used. The saving grace is that it dries out very quickly.

by fromNice Features, But Zipper Gets Caught My spouse purchased this jacket for me to use in my daily commuting to work, which I do via bike. I was really excited about the jacket. It has good pockets on the side, a rear pouch, reflective piping, and extra material to cover your rear. All was great. But in use, the front zipper gets stuck in the extra fabric underneath used for a windblock. That's not so handy when you're biking...

by fromGood visibility, not much protection I bike to work and around town on a daily basis. The jacket serves as a wind breaker and safety garment. The color gets attention quickly and from great distance. In moderate to cool weather, I wear it over street clothes or bike jerseys as a vest. In cool to cold weather, I use it as a jacket. Unfortunately, the sleeves seem to hold heat - the cuffs are close fitting and there's no ventilation. Arm zips allow some torso ventilation, but no real cooling of the arms. Rain seeps through the fabric very quickly leaving the jacket fabric clinging to arms and shoulders. I'll look for something else as a decent rain jacket and shell.

by fromNot good enough for the $$ Bought this at the store on sale without looking at reviews, regret that. Advertises that it is water resistant. This is true, for about 3 minutes. Not in a deluge, but just in a misting rain it soaked through that fast. You can get water proof spray and treat it. This does extend the time being dry, but not totally. The zipper CONSTANTLY puckers. You can't use just one hand to zip this up in the front. I've even had to use a screw-driver to spread the zipper to get it loose. Same with the sleeves. Too restrictive in the shoulders for casual wear. If your shoulders are wide, don't bother.
