Bontrager's Rhythm Stormshell Jacket is a full-on waterproof, breathable shell for riding in the nastiest weather. Whether you're commuting year-round or heading into the mountains on two wheels, this thing has your back with Profila Stormshell fabric with fully taped seams and waterproof zippers. Full of features, this quickly became one of our all-time favorites. It has wrap-around chest vents for ventilation that work with pack straps, a helmet-compatible hood, a chest pocket and a pair of zippered hand pockets. The fit is loose and comfy for total freedom of movement. Don't let that fool you, the 3-inch droptail gives you splash coverage while hook and loop tabs at your wrists and the shock-corded waist seals out the elements. Riding in the rain was never so easy.
Great jacket! Caught in a storm and it was 100% waterproof. Sleeves are long for cycling coverage when u are stretched out on the bike.Chest Vents are brilliant. Somewhat warm for a summer jacket though (probably ok/ rain makes it cooler), and not many visibility highlights. Be sure to take other visibility precautions for road cycling. I Wish the hood was stowable. Does not compact to well, but this is a heavy weather jacket primarily. I will still use it in summer, it is not TOO warm.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
