Nashbar Rain Jacket
Who likes being wet and cold. We don't, that's for sure. So we always remember to bring our Nashbar Rain Jackets with us when the sky looks threatening. It's made with eco-friendly PEVA plastic, a polymer that is so awesome it's even legal in California. We also incorporated some mesh vents to keep you cool, and a reflective stripe on the rear to keep you safe.
  • PEVA plastic construction is water proof and Earth- friendly
  • See-through material lets you show off your jersey even in the rain
  • Meets all California regulations
  • Mesh vents keep air moving through and keep you from overheating
  • Reflective rear stripe for safety
  • Elasticized cuffs

      Decent Jacket for Brief Showers

      By Cameron

      from Indiana

      About Me Avid Cyclist

      Pros

      • Good visibility
      • Lightweight

      Cons

      • Poor Breathe-ability
      • Velcro Closure

      Best Uses

      • Commuting/City

      Comments about Nashbar Rain Jacket:

      Pros:
      - Lightweight
      - Reflective strip on back provides good visibility
      - Keeps rain out for short trips

      Cons:
      - By far, the biggest issue for me was that the Velcro closure causes snags/pulls in jerseys worn underneath. In fact, it has basically ruined two of my jerseys. This issue primarily lead to my decision to return it for a refund.
      - Poor breathe-ability, so sweat quickly builds up underneath. My commute is generally 6-7 miles, and I was soaked with sweat every time I wore this.
      - Lack of flexibility, so it does not fit in jersey pockets very conveniently
      - When it gets wet inside, it takes some effort to hang it up so that it breathes enough to dry. This is particularly true in the sleeves. Because of the type of material (shower curtain-like), it tends to stick to itself.

        Nashba Rain Jacket

        By Shuestrong

        from Minneapolis, MN

        About Me Commuter

        Verified Buyer

        Pros

        • Waterproof

        Cons

        • Not Very Breathable
        • Rigid Design

        Best Uses

        • Commuting/City

        Comments about Nashbar Rain Jacket:

        This product was okay. You get what you pay for. Its design is very rigid and does not fold too nicely to fit into tight spaces or rear pockets. The mesh vents don't really seem to get too much airflow either. I have a 7 mile commute and it got uncomfortable and I started to overheat. But at the price,it's a killer deal. I think it would be better for shorter commutes and rides. A more foldable and product would be better for everyone else.

        Comments about Nashbar Rain Jacket:

        I bought one of these for myself and my wife (she digs the jacket). As mentioned in the pros, I like the reflective strip, ventilated arms and sides, and fitted cuffs. My one turn off about the jacket is the velcro front. It gets caught on other materials as well as the ventilation mesh. I also feel as if that's not as secure as a zipper. I could also benefit from having a pocket or two on there. Killer value though and it will keep you dry!

            The fit is great was a little worried it would be to big but the Med. fits just right. Enough room to move. Has valcro up the front instead of snaps or zipper. It is well ventalated under the arms. Have not worn it yet but will be taking it along the end of this month for a weekend ride just in case. Easy to carry. The price is right for something that I will not wear every day so I bought 2 of them.

              I had one of these years ago,till it wore out. I like the velcro closure, and the semi transparent so your visibility colors still show. Good rain jacket and a great value.

                Comments about Nashbar Rain Jacket:

                Yes, this jacket is indeed waterproof... as it should be, constructed from a material resembling a shower curtain. Works as advertised but I wouldn't want to wear it for any length of time because the wrists are way too tight. The clear plastic allows your jersey to be seen -- nice. I would reluctantly recommend this item to a friend only at the sale price. Sizing is on the small size so you might want to order one size up.
