Went out for a 100K jaunt the other day and wore a thermal long sleeve jersey along with a vest. I thought I'd carry this barrier jacket just in case. I'm so glad I did, cause after about 30 miles of climbing, the winds started to pick up and had me freezing in my own sweat. I unrolled this jacket from my back pocket and was provided instant protection from the windy elements. It rolls into such a small size, it's worth carrying for extra protection
Great wind and light rain jacket. Zipper works well with one hand. Heavy rain will eventually soak through after a couple hours but a good jacket for most conditions. Packs well into pocket. A zippered pocket would be a nice addition but overall very pleased with purchase.
Replaced my 20-year-old Pearl Izumi jacket with this one. This jacket is well made and lightweight, easily rolled up and stowed in my jersey pocket. Water repellent. Not a real winter jacket, more of a wind breaker.
