I bought this because I needed really protection on early morning rides in the North East of England. It's been great - really good windproofing. It's well made, fits well, is comfortable, and is possibly more robust than I expected - I came off the bike at some speed and it survived with the smallest of tears, soon mended. And having subjected it unintentionally to a good few hours of rain, it's probably more rainproof than I was expecting! If there's one criticism I'd have it's that the pockets on the back can be difficult to get things out of when on the move, but given I tend to use my shirt pockets, I'm not that bothered.
