If you want a jacket for every season, this seems to be the one to get. The included camleback is too small for any long trips, but is a nice idea. Otherwise, it seems they thought of everything, especially pockets....lots of pockets....

When I received this jacket, looking at all the features made me feel at ease. Having a place to put my stuff with all the pockets that the jacket have to offer was great. Wearing this jacket was comfortable no doubts about it. I was happy the way it felt, it wasn't tight which isn't my style. I prefer some comfort so I can further enjoy my cruising. The protecting padding on the jacket feels align and secure and in its place. So it doesn't feel out of place and unsecure, and a great deal as well I've seen other web sites trying sale this same item at retail price in the upper 300 price range so u can't beat that . So great jacket and great deal u can't go wrong

The Kathmandu is a solid overall adventure jacket. While I have not been able to test the waterproofedness of the jacket yet it is of sound construction. The liner is pretty warm although being summer time I cannot say how warm in cold weather riding. Neoprene around the wrists makes it snug but a little annoying to get off bare skin. The included hydration pack is a nice addition. Got mine in black and it does absorb the suns rays so a brighter color may be a smarter choice. Also the high vis piping along the jacket is nice.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I was able to ride in the rain for 2 days worth of riding. The only seepage I had was on the wrists and that was because I wasn't wearing gauntlets. The bladder is to small for serious riding and when full pulls on the front, thus the neck feels the stress. Not much of a problem for long if you keep hydrated.
I would buy again but hopefully it lasts a very long time!

Fit was excellent for me (6'0" 165 lbs = Lg). Most features such as fold over waterproof pockets are excellent. Styling excellent. Unfortunately 2 cons which I find to be very significant are 2 stiff snaps at neck which are nearly impossible to snap while riding - Velcro would be much easier. And the quilted thermal layer does not meet at the midline. So while riding in cold conditions all of my body was toasty except for a very chilly sternum to navel band - which is the most important core area that should be protected. An extra thermal flap would solve that very simply. If they make those changes I would rank this jacket at the very top.
Yes, I recommend this product.

From HURLOCK
Great fit. Lots of room in the sholders that I needed and I was able to cinch the waist to fit easily. I have ridden in 34 degree weather and it was ok but needed a bit more layers to be truely comfortable. It feels like this jacked was already broken in when I first put in on. Highly recommend this product.
Pros Great Value, Comfortable, Fashionable, Highly visible, Rugged
Yes, I recommend this product.
