This jacket is definitely waterproof but because it is not breathable at all sweat will quickly build up on the inside of the jacket.
Another slight issue is that unless you wear a base layer to separate your skin from the jacket any sweat will discolour the jacket making it a brownish colour in those areas.

I was looking for a high-vis, water and windproof over-jacket over the motorbike jacket.
This jacket is is high-vis of course and indeed looks good. It is also windproof, but I am not convinced it is waterproof, although I have not worn it in heavy rain yet. The zip is NOT SEALED, which is why I think it won't be waterproof. The zip has a overlapping and folded-in layer, which is meant to stop the water reaching the zip. However that's held in place with 3 small patches of Velcro. Any wind will move that overlap away and the water will get through the zip.
As per other reviewers - the stitching is very flimsy. The Velcro hasn't torn off yet but it looks like that's going to happen soon. The inside layer is a net with very large holes, meant to stop the outer layer clinging onto your skin. It's attached at only 3 flimsy points, so again its prone to tear off very quickly.
I normally wear size M and it fits. The back has quite an unusually long over hang to protect your backside. Looks odd but I guess might be useful if you want to sit on a wet rock. The front though is unusually short. You lift your arms and your belly is exposed. Neither of these are a problem to me as I am wearing it as over coat.
Biggest issue I have is - its too tight for me to close it all the way to the top when worn over the motorbike jacket. That means wind and water get in. That's a common issue though with most rain jackets. But this jacket looked like it had more material at the top to allow it to fit over a thick neck tube. But that curved zip in the picture is just fake. The zip is in fact just as straight as in all other jackets. The Velcro at the top also doesn't allow for a looser fit.
So in essence - I am glad I only paid £15 for it because its no better than any other rain coat in this price range.

Arrived on time ( I was even told the hour it would come) very good service by all concerned. The fit is good & it seems well made, I've not tried it in the rain yet, but it's a comfortable fit when on the bike, as to condensation, you get some with any waterproofs, no mater what they are made of, simple solution ride slower. I'm well pleased with this item. One thing, check your size when you order.

Good value for money. I keep this lightweight jacket in my bag or panniers when commuting by motorbike. I wear it over my leathers and so far it has proved totally waterproof and I have not had any issues with sweating in it so there is enough air movement to prevent perspiration build up. Packs pretty small and the mesh lining helps it to ease on over leathers without gripping. Not sure if it would work with a sports bike but on a BMW 1200GSA (big screen, upright riding position) it works very well with no noticeable flapping.

Not ideal as it doesn't breathe. Keeps the rain out but sweat inside.

It keeps me dry and surprisingly warm. At a third of the price of comparable "name" makes in the shops this is a real bargain.
