Gear review - Outdoor research Reveal Jacket

Well after tonight's ride home in  torrential rain and a pretty awesome lightening show , I thought I would write a review on my recently acquired Outdoor research Reveal jacket. Being an all season cyclist it means I ride the 8kms into work in all manner of weather , heavy rain, snow, wind you name it and Niigata City gets it and rain is one thing we get a lot of so I need to carry a good water proof jacket everyday. After my Ground Effect storm trooper jacket started leaking as it was almost 3 years old, by the way that is also an awesome water proof jacket from the gang at Ground Effect who are based in Christchurch , New Zealand . So I decided to try another brand and this time it was Outdoor Research, the USA based company has been around for a long time and they know how to turn out good quality gear at affordable prices. Below is a picture of the jacket taken from the Outdoor Research website.



The jacket pictured above is identical to mine and will keep you 100% dry even in heavy rain as was proved this evening whilst riding home from work. It can be packed down quite small by stuffing the jacket into the left hand pocket and the two front side pockets are handy for holding smaller items you need to get easily. e.g keys, wallet and a phone. The hood fits under a bicycle helmet fine and neck area is lined with a fine fleece. One great feature of this jacket is the full length side vents so you can easily adjust it to suit almost any weather. This is advertised as both a cycling and hiking jacket and works really well. It does not have the traditional style whale tail of many cycling jackets but is long enough whilst bent over cycling. In all its a great jacket for the price and is available in a wide variety of colors and sizes.
