Waterproof Breathable Raincoat Cycling Jacket

Aero Tech Designs Waterproof Breathable Cycling Jacket - A Raincoat for the Serious Cyclist.

Waterproof,  Windproof,  Breathable ... with many Reflective Elements!

Designed with comfort and safety in mind, this jacket has four pockets that zipper shut.  The added bonus of highly visible reflective trims all around for a full reflective luminosity all sides of the waterproof breathable rain jacket. The back length is three inches longer to prevent the jacket from riding up when in the aero position. In addition, the back has a hidden, drop down flap that is nine inches in extra length when riding in heavy rain.  In case of a downpour or water that is slung off the rear tire, you will be protected. 

Temperature range of about 30-45 degrees.

The highly technical jacket has three layers.  The outside shell is constructed with 100% nylon which is a lightweight yet tight woven fabric that is windproof.  The surface of the fabric beads up when hit with rain morning dew.  The second layer features a waterproof  breathable membrane that prevents water from penetrating, yet breathes for athletic uses. The inner mesh is made of 100% polyester which allows for high breathability. There is a 9.5 inch rear pocket that zippers to lock in gels and other items that need to be easily accessible.

Technically Designed Rain Jacket has three layers for optimum performance.

This Waterproof Breathable Cycling Jacket has two waterproofing features.  One, it is made with technically a designed fabric face that is woven with a fine, high tenacity material that is treated with a DWR (Durable Water Repellent) that keeps surface water off the fabric with it's lightweight hydrophobic coating.  Second, the treated fabric is laminated to a waterproof breathable membrane that allows the skin to breath and evaporate moisture to the outer surfaces of the jacket. Wikipedia Definition:  DWR (durable water repellent) is a coating added to fabrics at the factory to make them water-resistant (or hydrophobic). Most factory-applied treatments are fluoropolymer based.  With the DWR surface, combined with the waterproof breathable membrane, the material delivers high performance when you are outside bearing the elements.  The The tight weave of the material makes it windproof in addition to the features listed above.  The Third layer is the wicking polyester mesh lining inside the jacket.  The mesh liner is soft and ads an extra layer of insulation between your skin and the jacket.

    Not satisfied, returned

    Posted by John Post on Nov 2nd 2017

    Jacket was too loose, allowing air to blow up the back, when riding the material actually "krinkled", like it was made of some kind of plastic.

    The zipper was installed wrong, requiring the use of the left hand to zip ?. Felt weird.

    I was not pleased with the jacket and decided to return.

    Excellent Jacket

    Posted by Tim on Aug 17th 2017

    I'm 6-2 185 and ordered an XL and it fit really well. The sleeves were long, which was great because I have long arms. I bought it for a long ride at high elevation (9k-11k feet) and we started at 5AM. It was supposedly 50 degrees at the base, but it felt much colder, particularly as we climbed up towards the first summit. In any case, I was very warm and comfortable the whole time. It didn't rain that day (fortunately) but I'm convinced that the jacket would have worked perfectly. The description says it is good from 30-45 degrees and that's probably accurate depending on the external conditions and if you have layers on.

    Also, I didn't find the zippers to be as bad as some people said. Sure, you had to pay attention when opening or closing them, but it's not a big deal.

    nice and warm, horrible zipper

    Posted by Jim on Mar 19th 2017

    The jacket is great, very comfortable under 45ø (with light layering underneath) looks good, sizes may run a bit large. Unfortunately, the zipper does get stuck (every time); the back pocket zipper is really bad; I have to take the thing off to work it open. Too bad.

    Nice raingear

    Posted by Jim c on Mar 15th 2017

    Well made and thought out
    I Like the extra tail on the rear to cover more in the rain
    I am 6 foot even and weight 185 and the extra large is a good fit
    Yes the pockets are a little small but will
    only use them to store gloves
    The removable hood is a nice touch
    I use a rain helmet cover so only need hood when I walk around
    Fantastic jacket at this price

    Great Everyday Jacket

    Posted by Jonathan on Jan 20th 2017

    It does seem to breathe and keep you dry, with one long sleeve underneath, I'm comfortable riding in 40 degree rain showers. The zipper can get caught, as others have noted, but it's not a big deal. And I love the rain flap in the back.

    Didn't like fit. The zipper consistently stuck on the material. Returned item.

    Excellent Rain Jacket

    Posted by Tony Libra on Sep 24th 2016

    I bought this for a biking trip in Europe. We cycled through the alps for two weeks. Ran into several days of rain. The jacket kept me warm and dry. The hood slips under my bike helmut which I really liked.
    The rear of the jacket has an extension you can unsnap to cover you bottom to keep the wheel spray off your seat. Worked great. I had no problem with the zipper.

    Decent

    Posted by Pierce on Jan 25th 2016

    As other reviewers noted, the zipper has a tendency to stick. The key is to kind of pull away from yourself while pulling the zipper. The hood kind of has an elastic band like a cap, which makes turning your head with it on a bit awkward. Otherwise, I like it. Having a hood is nice, as is the extra length on the back. If I order again, I might go a size down. (Measured between a medium and a large) It keeps water out and keeps me fairly warm in this winter so far. Plus, it's locally made and I'm a fan of Aerotech.

    High quality jacket for the price.

    Posted by Brandon on Dec 10th 2015

    This jacket was definitely made by cyclists - there is no stretching or tight spots when in riding position and the back is long enough to cover up the lower back (and it has a nice flap that extends down). I usually wear size large clothing and the large size here was just fine. I ride in Oregon and have been kept drying in downpours. Two things I would like to point out, one good, one bad: The hood zips off and is a great size for fitting under a helmet, but the neck is quite wide and offers no way to cinch tighter. This sometimes is annoying because water can get down inside while riding. I supplement this by wearing a ski sleeve and it seems to do the trick.

    Great Jacket

    Posted by Jeff on Dec 8th 2015

    I really like this jacket. Yesterday I went for a long ride in the rain and used the hood for the first time. The hood was awesome, stayed warm and pretty dry considering how wet it was. My two complaints are the zipper is a bit flimsy and gets jammed in the flap making it hard to zip one handed on descents. The other is I can't use the pockets with my gloves on as the opening is too small, in fact its almost too small for my bare hands. Would love to see those changed.

    Versatile cycling/ light purpose jacket

    Posted by Jim Campbell on Sep 10th 2015

    I purchased this jacket as a rain jacket to wear during longer rides. It is well constructed, light, surprisingly warm and packs up small. The fit and finish are nice enough so that the jacket served as an outer layer in the evenings on a recent cycling vacation - even to semi-casual dinners. I highly recommend the jacket.
