|My new winter ally against the elements on the bike commute.|
The old model traveled to Zambia and back and now after five continuous years as my primary winter bike commuting covering the old jacket sports a frayed lining. Where it is frayed I sometimes get wet when it rains. That's all good when it is warm. Wet shoulders in summer? Bring it on. When the mercury drops and I am wet beneath my shell? Not completely pleasurable.
Not much of a gear-junkie, I thought I'd share the new raincoat so that you Dear Blog Reader - who may be considering bicycle commuting or are already out in the streets - could see what a 363 day per year pedaller prefers. (On the other two or so days/year when ice covers Mother Earth I wear a wool coat and wait for the bus.)
