Ideal "get me home" rain jacket

PostedNovember 6, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
I had been looking for quite some time for that ideal "get me home" jacket that would offer protection should I get caught in a downpour while out on a long cycle run. You know how it is with our climate. Sometimes you have to make a judgement call at the outset of a ride as to whether it is likely to rain or not.......sometimes leading to needlessly putting on a rain jacket when setting out. The pocket rocket jacket completely eliminates this dilemma. It really does pack a way effortlessly into its tiny stuff sack which then fits neatly into the side pocket of your jersey. Then, if the heavens open, you can get this jacket on in seconds. I wouldn't say I've been caught in a deluge yet....but I have been caught in a couple of pretty heavy downpours and the jacket has proven to be completely waterproof.
Add in the facts that it is also a pretty effective wind protector, acts as high vis garment for night time riding, and was price matched by Evans........ and this makes the pocket rocket the ideal "get me home" rain jacket.

Good sleeve and body fit, v small and light

PostedApril 13, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight
Good sleeve and body fit and very light. Have yet to use in anger, but feels like it should be more waterproof than the one it's replacing. As others have said, the back does feel a little short, but as this is mainly going to be emergency summer use only, I don't think that's going to be a problem.

Great for keeping in your back pocket in case of a shower. Used in light rain and kept me dry.
