When the sky grows cloudy, you'll love the added peace of mind you get when you're dry and visible in Endura's Luminite Jacket. This waterproof, breathable jacket sports reflective accents and a handy LED light integrated into the rear pocket for added visibility, even in the dark. The light has three flash options for even more visibility. Take advantage of the zipped chest and handwarmer pockets, not to mention the rear zipper pocket to keep your food and tools safely stashed. Fully sealed seams and waterproof zips round out this foul-weather wunderkind, so that you'll be prepared for even torrential rains.
The jacket is well made and very bright. I have had it for about a year and I ride through the winter with it (a fleece underneath will keep you warm down to about 20 degrees F). I only use the LED on the back in fog and such. In a moderate rain (about 1/2 in per hour) it will get soaked through in about 25 minutes. When the jacket is dry, it breaths wonderfully. It is also very good against a wind. When the jacket is wet, it does not breath very well, so you tend to get a little sweatty on the inside.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
