Promising review: "Best rain jacket ever, period. Not too heavy, good quality, doesn't tear easily, breathes decently for what it is, utterly waterproof. Fit is great. What can't be overstated is Showers Pass' use of mechanical zippers for additional ventilation. No 'breathable' cycling gear really breaths all *that* well, so having actual zipper-open vents is a huge plus when the rain stops, or the rain is light, and you want to let in some air. I've never found back vents and pit vents work as well as the giant chest zippers on this jacket for letting air in. The hood has three points of adjustment, and a wire running along the edge to make a 'visor' of sorts. I wear mind under my helmet. The tail protector is a nice touch. Additionally, the jacket is decently styled enough to be used off the bike." —Kevin Quosig
