    Decent jacket, but misses where it needs to hit., February 1, 2015

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    Ok, first off, I am a relatively new cyclist. I primarily only ride my bike to and from work in the greater Puget sound area outside of Seattle. For those of you not familiar with the region, we see a lot of rain here. I bought this jacket and the 5K pants that Tenn makes at the same time in hopes of making my rainy commutes a little bit easier to deal with.. Prior to using this I was using a Columbia waterproof jacket that did not breathe at all, thus rendering me a sweaty mess at the end regardless of whether it was raining or not.
    Having such a long list of mostly positive reviews on the pants that Tenn makes to complement this jacket, I figured that the jacket would be a safe bet even though it had 0 reviews at the time of purchase. Here is a list of Pro and cons…
    Pros:
    Lightweight
    Packable
    Stylish
    Waterproof
    Quality construction

    Cons:
    No pit zips
    Attached hood cant be removed and when packed becomes a “neck pillow”
    Needs a zipper cover at the neck to keep from digging into your neck
    The sleeves have a nylon lining that do not breathe, hence you peel your arms out if not wearing a long sleeve undershirt

    Ultimately this is an overall nice jacket. I have worn it just for outings when walking my dog for wind and rain protection, or just a lightweight jacket to wear on cooler days. It has left hand zipper construction which doesn’t bother me in the least, although some may find it annoying. The quality of the material and construction is on par with a Columbia or something else similar in the ‘middle’ category so to speak. Aside from the breathability issues of the sleeves and the hood that I cant detach its a decent jacket.
    Would I recommend it? I wouldn’t buy this again, instead I would spend the extra money and get something like the Bontrager soft shell jacket (unfortunately not available on Amazons site).

    UPDATE: 2-7-2015
    Being today was the first real day I have had to put the jacket and the rest of my Tenn raingear to the test in the rain, I figured I should add an update. Today we had periods of out right downpour rain in the convergence zone here in the Puget sound region. My short 4.2 mile commute was a total of 14m 23sec long with an average speed of 17.43mph. I wore only a light t-shirt under the jacket, and just my regular under armour underwear underneath the Tenn Driven Cycling Waterproof Breathable 5K Cycle Trousers Black. I wear leather waterproof boots with Defeet blaze wool socks on my feet. Today I was also wearing the Tenn Waterproof Windproof Cold Weather Plus Gloves, so I had a trifecta test of the Tenn product line.

    At no point during my ride did I feel uncomfortable about getting wet, I actually felt quite confident that I was staying dry underneath the gear, almost. My arms felt it first, and I really don’t mind that much either. It wasn’t until I was able to remove my gear that I could see where the rain found its way in. First and foremost, the arms as I stated were wet, and I didn’t care because I was wearing a short sleeve shirt anyway and I always carry a change for when I get to work regardless. When I unzipped the jacket though, I noticed the rain had penetrated the taped zipper below my sternum down to my crotch. So now I realized that it wasn’t just the cool air I had felt, but I was also wet in my crotch, which was unexpected as I was also wearing the waterproof pants that Tenn makes. Perhaps a combination of the water going down the zipper to the seat, soaking through the pants into my underwear…wasn’t expecting that actually. The only things that performed great were my boots, socks, and the Tenn gloves. The gloves actually kept my hands dry surprisingly. I cant say enough good things about DeFeet Wooleator Socks…if you haven’t tried them, you are missing out! My leather boots are made by carharrt, and as long as you treat them with good leather stuff, they work awesome on their own.
    One thing that I will say good about the Jacket is that the hood is actually quite nice the way it wraps around your helmet and cuts in to your neck to keep from inflating while riding. A simple tug on the tensioners once you have it over your helmet (I use a Bern helmet) and it cinches down and stays there nicely. I don’t ever roll the hood into the collar anymore, I just leave it out as I find it too annoying having it rolled up in the collar on my neck. As for the jacket…I would definitely give it a “water…
