Aero Tech Big Size Men's Waterproof Breathable Rainwear - Technical Cycling Jacket with zip off Hood

big man's rain jacketBig Man's Rain jacket is Windproof, Waterproof and Breathable.  Great Rain gear for men who need extra length in the torsoe and arms.  Also see Tall size Rain Jacket for 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. 

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. 

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.

Wore once on RAGBRAI and it won't come clean
I bought this jacket for RAGBRAI 2017. I wore it on the single day of rain...and now it won't clean up from road grime. Not sure what fabric issue it has but is not stain resistant like I would expect.
Prosfits well, bright color
Consnot stain resistant

Quality Jacket, but the size runs small
It is a good (quality) jacket. Pockets, good color, reflective strips a bit pricey. Unfortunately the jacket runs a bit small. I wear a 3x -4x in shirts so I thought this would fit, but it wasn't even close. I had one of those "fat guy in a little coat" moments. I may try the 5xl, but I'm not sure if it will work.
Prosquality jacket, great color looks nice
ConsNot thrilled about logo, runs small.

nice jacket-
great quality jacket. stoked to be able to get a "big man " sized riding jacket. strange that the zipper is opposite the normal but not a big deal. fabric does get caught in the zipper fairly easy- just need to be careful when zipping pockets up. would buy again. not in love with having aerotech name on my chest though.

Runs small but good quality
I wear a 2xlt/3xl t-shirt so I got the 4xl jacket and it's not even close to zipping and sholders are really tight., looks like a well made jacket so I'm going to send back and try the 5xl.

Great biking jacket for big men.
Finally I found a jacket that fits. I ordered 5XL and it's a little loose but that's a lot better than a little tight. I'm 5'11" and 275lb. The sleeves are long but I can cinch them on my wrists with the velcro straps. It is safety yellow and is highly visible on the street. It keeps me warm on chilly mornings riding my bike to work.
ProsHighly visible. Fits big men. Comfortable.
ConsNone that I can think of other than it zips on the other side than I am used to.

Size issue
I wear a 5X shirt in multiple brands...this jacket isn't even close!!! More like a 3X if your lucky. Looks like good construction and a quality jacket, but sizing issues!

Excellent Rain Coat
I recently bought this to fulfill two functions. 1) the obvious for biking but 2) to handle wet whale watching in Alaska. The whales came first and this coat kept me thoroughly dry yet not overheated. It's bright and visible. I am very happy with my purchase.

Small design flaws but generally good
Generous sizing which is good. Not particularly breathable but few jackets are. Generally happy with purchase but neck a bit loose and cold air shoots down easily, especially when cycling - shame there is no pull string to tighten. Likewise hood (detachable which is great) is very loose and without a pull string to tighten, it just blows off your head with the wind (which is often associated with the rain you're trying to avoid in the first place with a hood). As I say overall still a good jacket and reasonably priced. I had to return/exchange item for a smaller size which turned out to be no trouble i.e. great service.

Finally a jacket that fits
I'm a big (350#) guy with a long 52 waist. It's hard to find a jacket that is long enough and still big enough in the shoulders. I love this jacket and would recommend it to anyone. I got the 4XL. It seems to keep me warm when I want and not too warm when I don't. I use it in the rain and in the cool 50ish morning temps in the summertime here in the Puget Sound.

Great Waterproof Riding Jacket
A great waterproof wind breaker. Took a long search on the Internet to locate, but worth the search!
ProsHad difficulty locating a jacket that fits, as I wear a 48 Extea Long suit coat. You have ALL the sizes!
ConsIf I could maka any improvements, I'd add a zipper that would open also from the bottom for ventilation. Under arm vents would also be a nice addition, perhaps with zippers?
Best UsesGreat pack able waterproof windbreaker with detachable hood and flap to protect your "bohinney " when caught in a rainstorm. That happens frequently here in southwest FL.

Nice waterproof jacket
Note the fit is not as good as the thermal softshell. I needed to go up a size to 2XLT to get the length I needed and it a bit blousy but in a rain jacket I guess that's OK as I might need to have room for a fleece or sub layer in cool spring weather. Decent looking and the yellow is highly visible. Wish it was longer so I could have used the XLT fit. hose soft shells are cut perfect. this one is just OK.
Proswaterproof, visibility
Conslike most rain jackets if riding hard you will build up heat and moisture on the inside.
Best UsesRiding or hiking in the rain

Really pleased
Ordering from overseas (I am in th UK) can be risky, what do you do if you have to return it? I just couldn't get a cycling jacket of the correct size and qulity in Europe. The size as advertised was spot on and I am over the moon with the jacket. It arrived within the time described. I will have no hestitation in pointing any of my larger friends struggling to get cycle clothing to Aerotech Designs.
