Rated4out of5byawiel45fromBright Yellow Biking JacketI use this jacket on my daily commute. It's not very waterproof though. I have a 3.5 mile commute and if it is sprinkling/ lightly raining, I become soaked to the bone...
I recommend a light base layer underneath when it's below 45 because it is not wind proof, but when the weather is nicer/ warmer, I'm sure I'll be a very happy camper with its breathability and ability to convert to a vest.
It would also be nice if there was a loop or something that a rear bike light could be attached to.
Overall this is a good biking jacket for its visibility and as a very light wind breaker.

Rated5out of5byBiking in DCfromGreat jacket with one exception...The only problem I have found with this jacket is with the front left pocket. It catches when zipping up and if I'm not careful, I feel like it will tear the fabric. Other than that, this is a fabulous jacket. I love that it's comfortable and turns into a vest for spring cycling.

Rated5out of5byHejjmoBejjmofromPerfectly obnoxious yellow jacket!This jacket has been a great addition to my bike commuting wardrobe. As the temperatures cooled and the mornings got darker, this jacket gave me some added warmth/wind protection and visibility. While it's not waterproof (description says water resistant, but I haven't had a chance to test that out), it does provide enough wind resistance on chilly morning downhill rides.
When I first started wearing it, my friends said, "That jacket is obnoxious!" to which I replied, "Of course it is! That's the point".
It took me a while to come around to the idea of 'screaming yellow' but I'm so happy and feel much safer on the road with it. I also love the flexibility of being able to remove the sleves in warmer weather. Also, since the sleeves zip off as one piece, you can't misplace one and end up with a one-sleeved jacket. Nice touch.
