I’m going to trounce my reputation here a bit, but if I have one luxury other than a nice traditional cappuccino it’s good rain gear. I ride a lot in the winter and it makes a huge difference to my enjoyment. For example, I’m testing a pair of Race Face Agent Winter pants right now and I’ll wear them rain or shine for fall rides. They’ve been experience changing. They’ve seriously negated a drawer full of gear. Anyways, now that I’m here. I’m not a windbreaker guy - give me a sweater or give me a rain jacket. On the rain jacket front, I’m a sweaty beast and I’d rather be soaked with rain than swimming in my own sweat shower. I think the best blend of breathability, durability, stretch, and lightweight (cause I take it off when the rain stops) is the new Race Face Conspiracy jacket (note the rubberized elbow/forearm). That’s $250 CAD. So yeah, not $50 but I think $250 is solid value for this particular shell.
