Aero Tech Tall Mans's Waterproof Breathable Rainwear - Technical Cycling Jacket with zip off Hood

extra long tall man's rain jacketTall Rain jacket is Windproof, Waterproof and Breathable.  Great Rain gear for men who need extra length in the torsoe and arms.  Tall sized is extra long.

Rainwear is the gear of choice for active cyclists.  There are several different brands of Waterproof/Breathable films like Gore-Tex® or eVent® and many others. When this type of fabric first came out there was only one brand with name recognition and that was Gore-Tex®. However, now there are many choices that might fall into the "generic" category with all the same high performance properties but without the branded markings. 

Keeping dry in a downpour is not easy unless you take the extra steps to create a barrier between you and the water.  Highly effective rain gear like this one has two rain barriers build into the material design. The process to create the waterproof fabric in this rainwear starts with a tightly woven polyester fabric that has been treated on the surface with a DWR or Durable Water Resistant finish.  This finish helps water to bead up on the surface of the fabric.  It is a coating.  That treated polyester fabric is then laminated to a waterproof breathable membrane.  The laminated membrane is composed of an expanded polytetrafluoroethylene, polyurethane (PU) or polyester membrane.  It looks like a plastic film with microscopic ventilation that allows water vapor from perspiration to push through to the outer fabric (wicking) for evaporation. cycling rain jacket fabric is 3 layers

Waterproof breathable laminates are membranes that look like a thin rubber skin.  Popular brands include Gore-Tex® PacLite®; eVent®; MemBrain® Dry.Q® are highly technical in their composition because they allow water perspiration vapor from the body to escape into the outer layers for evaporation.  While they are all breathable, they are essentially the same in their component parts.  There is no comparative test or mechanical measurement for testing performance for this type of material. 

Aero Tech does abrasion testing (martindale) on the fabric surface, and tests the coating of DWR but there is no standard for comparison between waterproof breathable laminates.  They all have about the same properties and deliver similar results. 

Main features of this Rainwear:

Zipper off Hood:  This jacket has a removable hood that fits nice and snug for insulation and so that it can be worn under a cycling helmet.  It has a wide, stiff brim that keeps some air space above the eyes to keep some of the rain off your face.  

Seam Sealing: All of the seams on this waterproof breathable jacket are taped to seal out tiny puncture holes from the stitching.  The highest quality narrow seam tape on this jacket keeps the seams soft and pliable with no discernible difference in the fabric between seams and body. 

Technical Additions:  The extra convenience you get from these added features are so worth the bit of extra cost because they add to the ease of comfort. 

Additional features:

  • Velcro wrist closures.  This adjusts the sleeve length to your unique fit.  It also enables you to pull down the jacket over your fingers when it is very cold and wet outside.
  • Five zippered pockets to stow your stuff. The back pocket is big and roomy for all the stuff you will need to carry on your activity.
  • Media Port - The chest pocket has a headphone port for your wires.
  • Storm Rain Flap - The back of this rainwear has a flap that snaps up or down to cover the rear during a storm.
  • Adjustable Fit - The hem of the jacket has two shock cords to adjust the tightness around the hip area to seal out rain and cold air.
  • Lining - Those aiming to save space and weight should choose a 3- or 2.5-layer design (described above).
  • Zipper Garage - This jackets has a covering flap at the top of the front zipper so nothing touches your chin.
  • Zipper Lining - It stops wind from slipping through the teeth of the zipper.
  • Storm flap - The back of this rainwear has a flap that snaps up or down to cover the rear during a storm
  • Reflective Trims - Front and back and on all sides of the body for a 360 view of reflective in low light conditions.

Bought this jacket in anticipation of the fall season. Had a chance to test it on a ride to the grocery store and I was dry and comfortable (bread did not fare as well) I was pleased when the sleeves were long enough to comfortably cover my wrists while reaching for the grips. Good construction with a multitude of nice features. I plan on wearing this for any ride needing some protection from the elements

Great Fit
January 14, 2016
after searching high and low, going to local bike shops, and surfing the internet...I stumbled onto your website. So glad I did! I'm 6'-5" and 250 lbs, and commute by bike nearly everyday. While be ride isn't long...and I don't need the full weather protection of my ShowersPass jacket...I'm very pleased with the fit and comfort of the ATD Men's jacket.
Bright yellow for high visibility (I don't understand wearing a darker jacket). Sleeves that are long enough when riding, so your wrists aren't exposed. Plus full room around the chest and waist. Also, long enough flap over the lower back when riding for complete protection
Could use some under arm venting holes, or better yet zippers that can be adjusted depending on the weather, temperature, and level of vigorous riding.
Best Uses:
Daily, commuting. Not in heavy downpours, but the occasional misty rain and fog.

Okay but....

It's too loose fitting and really just too heavy and having worn it now on a few "cold" rides it also doesn't seem to wick moisture at all very well. It is however a well made jacket, it's just not well suited for use as my cycling jacket.
