Novara Stratos 2.0 Bike Jacket - Men'sis rated4.5out of5by10.
Rated4out of5byalbiedsfromGreat Jacket, good fit, great design.Great jacket, I loved the color and design, the back pockets. Tried it out for a couple days.
The lack of a hood is what drove me to return it, when not on the bike it would not serve well as a warm coat or rain jacket. I thought I could get past it, but after one cold windy day, I decided to turn against it.
Otherwise, this jacket is great quality and looks awesome. Zips up on the neck. I would have kept it if I didn't want functionality/versatility over style/one-sole purpose.

Rated5out of5byLeeRJfromNovara Stratos bike jacket = excellentThis jacket is great - it is lightweight and best of all, windproof. I commute to and from work and it is seemingly always into a headwind. This jacket does not let even a whisper of wind in which is great because it helps minimize the layers I have to wear to stay warm during winter commutes. This jacket performs better than expected. I couldn't ask for more.

Rated4out of5byschmichaelfromDry and warmEven with the pit zips and back zippers open this jacket still doesn't breathe. Great for cold rainy days, but I doubt I'll wear it once temps exceed 60F.

Rated4out of5byPositron JonfromWorks wellThe few times I've had to wear this jacket it kept me dry. I actually wore it a couple times when I had to ride my motorcycle in the rain. It's definitely windproof up to 60 mph.
The only caveat is the collar on the coat. When zipped up the whole way, it really digs into your neck.

Rated3out of5byRolanfromDefinitely WaterproofI wanted something to keep from getting soaked on cold, rainy rides. The jacket definitely keeps the rain out, but it is not really breathable compared to Gore-Tex. On rides at temperatures around 35F, the condensation is a real problem. This occurs even with the pit-zips open and not in the rain.
One other bothersome aspect is the jacket's front zipper flap has the wrong gender for a man's coat. It is constructed like a woman's (right side is outermost).
The chest pocket is a nice feature for keys, wallet, etc.
Given the price, I would not recommend this, since it is only marginally better that a much cheaper non-breathable waterproof jacket.

Rated5out of5bylistenermarkfromGood ValueGreat jacket....rode home this afternoon in the mid 40's with heavy rain. Arrived warm, comfortable, and dry. This jacket is also windproof making it ideal for very cold days. I am pleased with my purchase and would reccomend without hesitation.

Rated5out of5byPerkinfromAwesome biking jacket!I was out for a ride and stopped in at REI for a mirror... wouldn't you know it started to rain while I was in the store... cold, grey, nasty... I had 20 more miles to go and I wasn't looking forward to it in my old jacket.
I walked right back in to the store, purchased this jacket and had a great ride!
I was dry, warm and very comfortable.
The under-arm vents supplied just the right balance of air and still kept out the rain.
I'd recommend this jacket to anyone that rides.
