Roadgear jackets?
Anybody have experience with the Roadgear product line? That Tiera Del Fuego jacket looks pretty spiffy and very reasonably priced. But then, there’s reality… which sometimes varies from manufacturers’ claims. There is a review on Webbikeworld but, it was uncharacteristically written by a guy who sounds marginally literate and remarkably shallow in his knowledge of bike gear.

I have a Roadgear X-Caliber jacket that I wore from southern NM to Inuvik and back two years ago. We were in rain the entire trip. I never got wet. It is still my go to winter riding jacket. I commute to work year round on a bike in single digit to triple digit temperatures. In temperatures below 80F it is an awesome jacket. My complaints are the vents do not go through the liner. More waterproof but no air flow. Also that the velcro on the weather flap sucks. Last it is bulkier than any other jacket I own or have owned.

Webbikeworld has a good review, and the reflectives are as good as they show.
