Westcomb Cruiser LT Jacket
Price Paid: $200
This jacket is my favourite of all time and I have tried a few. I work outside in rainy Vancouver and am in and out of doors all day. The event fabric jacket breathes like no other, light but durable due to the 2 types of fabric used, pockets are great hood is simple with only 2 adjustments at the front but works great.
The magic of this jacket is that it is nice and tailored but somehow allows you to layer under it. I have a red rock colour which is understated and a change from the usual black I have. It is nice that it is made 6 blocks from my house and I only paid 200 cad.
My only gripe is the fabric gets dirty fast at the neck but that is minor. All in all I love it.

The slim athletic fit of the Westcomb Cruiser LT jacket enhances the smooth lines and sophisticated styling of this waterproof, breathable shell. Breathable, compact jacket has been engineered for optimal protection and comfort; high-impact zones are reinforced for peace of mind on even the gnarliest trails. eVent fabric has a unique membrane structure that allows sweat vapor to escape to the outside of the fabric in 1 easy step. No matter how hard you work, overheating is highly unlikely due to this Direct Venting(TM) technology. And, because you remain dry on the inside, the likelihood of an uncomfortable, post-exercise chill is eliminated. Attached helmet-compatible hood adjusts for good peripheral vision and provides a non-bulky fit when not wearing a helmet. Hood design allows you to cleanly cinch and compress the hood around the collar so it doesn't flap or catch rain when you're not wearing it. Watertight front zipper features an interior draft flap; velour chin guard protects sensitive skin. 2-way pit zippers let you vent body heat quickly; articulated elbows increase comfort. Drawcord hem and contoured, adjustable cuffs. The Westcomb Cruiser LT jacket includes 2 large zippered hand pockets and 1 chest pocket with watertight zippers; the laminated interior pocket has a headphone port.
If you're looking for a featherweight shell that won't let you down far from civilization, look no further than the Westcomb Cruiser LT Jacket. This super-packable piece uses the lightest eVent fabric available through the body and beefier ripstop eVent in high-stress areas, so you get lightweight performance without sacrificing durability. Fully micro-taped seams and laminated zippers keep moisture completely at bay, while the extended cut prevents crack overdose while reaching or bending over.
