Technical Information

1
Specific city cycling design
The 500 reflective city jacket has been designed for urban cyclists riding in the rain. Its shape covers the lower back, arms, neck and wrists while cycling, providing excellent protection from the cold and wind. There are vents under the arms to help air circulate freely. You can pack it away into its back pocket, making it easy to carry around, wherever you go.
2
Waterproofness
The 500 jacket is made from a durable fabric with a waterproof coating and also has watertight seams in the most important areas. A fabric's waterproofing is determined by measuring its resistance to the pressure exerted by a water column, measured in mm (test based on ISO 811 standard). The higher the pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. This fabric is waterproof to 2000 mm, meaning that it resists 2000 mm of water (which is about the same as a 1-hour downpour).

Compatibility
This product has a hook for attaching a VIOO Clip, an LED light that can be clipped on and unclipped anywhere in an instant. With a red or white light that can be used in continuous or flashing mode, you are clearly visible from up to 110 m away. Battery life is 9 hours in flashing mode, 4½ hours in continuous mode. Easy to recharge via a USB cable (sold with the VIOO Clip).

I'd previously bought a more expensive coat by another brand but returned it because it felt flimsy and didn't have a hood. This is a really great coat, every feature you could need and really stands out, especially in the dark. It's the first waterproof I've owned that doesn't have annoying flaps of material either side of the zip that make it hard to fasten, but the zip is still waterproof. Packs away and keeps me dry without overheating - really well ventilated. One piece of advice - I'm a medium sized woman but I bought this in large because men's coats are often too tight at the tips, and it fits perfectly.
Reflectiveness, zip, pockets, wristbands, hood
Only thing it's missing is a loop to hang it up
Good visibility, well designed

I use this as part of my layering for commuting in the winter, and so far it has performed admirably. One word of caution is it may be a little tight across the shoulders, but not restrictively so.
Visibility, price
Slightly narrow across the shoulder
Value for money
Used for 3 to 6 months
Both my girlfriend and I got these when we got our new bikes.
They're lightweight and comfortable with a good fit thats non restrictive. Waterproofing works well and theres enough room to layer up underneath if it gets a little colder. Very visible at night which adds piece of mind.
Fit, style, price
Horrible
Used for 7 to 12 months
It says that protect up to one hour of rain. 2 miles I have from home to work, less than ten minutes, and my arms arrive every is raining wet. I bought it because it will be enough to go to work, but it doesn´t work, never buy if you want to keep dry more than 10 minutes. Also it is difficult to clean the dirty of the city roads.
Nothing
no waterproof, difficult to clean
Response of the brand
This item is indeed meant to be waterproof and the fabric is treated as such.
I'm sorry to read that your arms are getting wet. It is not a breathable jacket and I wonder if it's a strong build up of condensation. Tell me, do you ride with long or short sleeves?
Looking forward to hearing from you.
