I also had an Aquanot prior to getting a Chute, and now use them for trail
building and "little black dress" respectively (Arc'teryx SL/FL for riding; I
find both of the RaceFace jackets too warm for the majority of conditions). I
know a good number of people who use the Chute for riding and love it; I just
prefer a thinner jacket for outdoor activities.
The Chute is far more breathable, which is a big plus as the Aquanot (which I
did use for riding a few years back) is a sweat bag. Both jackets are a
combination lifestyle/riding piece, which means there are some compromises. I
actually like the Aquanot's neoprene cuffs but the thumb holes are not in the
right place. The Chute in black is a classy little number; as Pete mentions
it's suitable for a wide range of situations - and its lined pockets are
great. I prefer the implementation of the Aquanot's stowaway hood but the
Chute's softer material makes its hood more comfortable. As you can tell I
like both jackets but if I had to choose one it would be the Chute for
breathability and versatility.
