If you're into night riding, commuting or simply like to blind everyone when someone points a light at you, then you shouldn't look further than the Altura Night Vision with its more-than-generous slathering of reflectives.
Although the waterproof zipped outer will keep the rain out, it may also stop much of your sweat from escaping. This is not the most breathable jacket around, thoughand might not suit if you only use fifth gear while riding.
For general-purpose commuting, though, this shouldn't be a problem, and the mesh liner and underarm and back vents will help keep you cool. The liberal use of reflective material, drop tail with drawcords, and chest and rear pockets makes this a very practical choice for daily riding.
