So why only 3 stars? I just ordered my 4th of these jackets in 2 years. On the 1st and 3rd, the fabric ripped apart, while on the 2nd, the zipper broke. The fabric has no stretch whatsoever and if it is stretched at all it will rip, and then the rip will expand. Definitely buy it a bit larger than you need so you don't have to stretch it while putting it on. That said, it's really inexpensive which is why I ordered another one. I do also wish it had a pocket.
End of summer update: I've worn this jacket on several rides and 2 short tours and it has performed better than expected. It breathes quite well and shed rain very effectively. I'm now getting one for my wife. I still consider it a "throw away," but expect to get at least 2 seasons and perhaps 3 out of it. Highly recommended as the perfect on-bike emergency rain gear.
While I'm not sure that the jacket "breathes" as well as advertised, it is comfortable on the skin, it is waterproof (as far as I can tell so far), it is lightweight, and very easy to carry around (one could easily fit it into an under-the-seat-bag).
The fit is also good. I normally wear a large, so I ordered that size, and it fits perfectly with room to spare in case I want to add an additional layer come fall/winter. The sleeves are just right, the tail is more than long enough, and the collar isn't too tight.
After I wear this is a real rain shower, I'll add to the review any relevant developments.
Anyhow, I suppose the lightweight and portability is what's valued by bike riders. I was just expecting something a bit more substantial and well-crafted. This seems like something I wouldn't pay more than a few bucks for, rather than the $29.85 (incl. postage) that I paid.
