got a new nasty weather shell. should be nice

i found it at target- it's like 35 bucks and is a polyester outside like nylon and the inside is also polyester, but more like fleece. they have a bright orange color, navy blue, bright blue, and black
i had the orange, but at the last minute decided to get the navy so that i could wear it at work if i get cold.
it should be a nice jacket for weather. i'll let yall know

this is it, looks like a badass outer jacket to wear outside of riding gear. i had been thinking about getting a very similar icon rain jacket, but this is like $70 less

i have been using a similar jacket that is a bit puffier- i wore it on the noob forest ride, over my a* sniper.
the one i have been using gave me no problems at all on that ride or any others i have used it on. it keeps my upper body toasty and dry.

i have considered frogg toggs, and will probably get a pair around the new year... or next time i go to cycle gear

i rode in freezing weather for my morning commute- real 32 degree weather.
it sucked. the glove liners i got at academy forced me to seek refuge in a kroger and be late for work, but my body was pretty decently warm! i have 2 complaints with the jacket so far. the hood would really benefit from having a poich to tuck into, and the sleeves could stand to be longer. really i just need some winter gauntlets, but really, this jacket is a pretty badass little weather shell. its a lot like icon's nasty weather shell, from what i am able to determine, the only real difference is the price.

I got these at CycleGear for $40. They are really warm and comfy, they have like 4 or 5 layers but aren't too puffy at all. It takes a bit to get used to shifting at first, but after a couple of rides no probs!
http://www.cyclegear.com/spgm.cfm?L1...CGC_AS35-7-S_G

When I first started out, I bought some "non" cycle gear thinking it would be the same. It is not. The gear made for cycles is really better thought out. Jackets usually have wider shoulders and longer sleeves for the reach. Also, a jacket that has cuffs that "strap" or velcro closed will keep the cold air from getting in and puffing up your jacket during the ride.

I have some leather jackets from old that work well in cooler days, but def need a cycle jacket for those cold or wet days.
