'morning coat' when you step off the bike; which means this rain jacket will be just as useful off the bike as on. During a commute I would be wearing Lycra cycle shorts anyway and change at my destination; but it would perhaps be nice to invest in a pair the Levi's commuter trousers (size 34 waist by the way) so one could take a casual urban ride in iffy weather and not worry about the wet bum issue; actually some shorts would be nice too! Maybe in the next range.
City Hybrid Trucker jacket which looks pretty good too; though I suspect would make for a much too warm cycling experience in Sydney in all but the coldest of weather; at least if you were covering any significant distance. So this looks like a great jacket; its certainly comfortable to wear and cycle in. At 6'4" the XL size has the right arm length when reaching to the bars, as you do.. I like the three pockets but beware of putting anything electronic in those patch pockets; I'm sure those flaps work - just as long as they stay out! Not too much reflective tape (though some will disagree) I for one prefer not to look like a target on the road side.. and Velcro sleeve tabs at the wrist to adjust for air and waterproofing.
Of course the Levi's Modular Commuter Parka looks good, even if it's looking too-new at the moment; that's nothing a few wet rides won't fix.
