Made of 3M Propore microporous fabric the O2 jacket employs a moisture barrier that is melded to a soft non-woven fabric. This technology allows your body to breathe while repelling moisture as well as keeping you cool and dry. Lightweight at 5 oz, the O2 Jacket fits into its own stuff sack for easy storage in a bike bag. JACKET TENDS TO RUN SMALL.

I used this jacket only very briefly in a short rain shower and it seemed to work well. However, definitely order one size larger than you normally wear. I am size small in everything and the small jacket was tight and very uncomfortable over the lightest jersey. I exchanged it for a medium and that was much better.
It does fold up nicely into a small pack.

I live in So. Fla. so the jacket was comfortable and light in the rain, Kept me dry. One suggestion. Would have been nice if they had installed at least on pocket on the side with a zipper.
Days of misty moisty rain handled nicely, and economically.

Even though we had days of endless drizzle (and a few healthy downpours) this jacket performed amazingly well. The perforated outer layer made it cool and comfortable. Paired with some nylon rain pants, I can't imagine you'd ever need anything more. But it is important to handle it carefully: it's some kind of non-woven material that doesn't look like it could handle a lot of abuse. Geet it tangled in your chain, for instance, and it would be toast...shredded toast.
Kept us dry!

Great value for the money! Packs up very light. My wife and I used these on our X-Washington ride June 2010. Kept dry in a 4 hour Seattle rainfall.

I've taken this jacket on more than one week long tour where I "might" need a rain jacket. It has held up very well, blocks the wind and rain just great and breathes. I did tear the sleeve slightly while pulling it on as it is made of a "paper like" material, but overall with a little care this jacket will hold up every bit as good as a higher priced one. I've ordered two for my friends. That tells ya how sasfisfied I am with it.

Most of the time, I don't need a "bomb-proof" rain jacket. For those circumstances, this jacket does its job well. It is a lot more comfortable than the plastic jackets, and I think that it weighs a bit less.
Obviously, for a long ride in a constant downpour, or for use day after day, I'd want something of higher durability, but this one saves both cost and weight.

The jacket is the first piece of bike clothing I've bought and I like it very much. It does what you say it will do very well. I will be a future customer.
