    After losing my cheap-o blue Performance Bike rain jacket, I decided I would pay a little more and
    get their more expensive one (#10-2755) because it has a drop-tail, without any elastic in the hem.
    Unfortunately, this one is not breathable in the least (like wearing a plastic bag). Most of the
    other aspects of the jacket are good. It has a zip-off hood, under-arm zippered vents, and of course
    the shorter front / longer back that is the drop-tail. If a company that makes decent breatheable
    shell-jackets, such as Red Ledge, were to make this jacket, it would be good. What are some
    breatheable cycling-cut jackets with hoods?

  2. I use a Lowe Alpine hillwalking jacket made of Triple point ceramic. It's breathable with underarm
    vents and all that. Very good. Fairly expensive.

    Can you ride with this jacket on without having to keep the front of it unfastened at the bottom?
    All of the jackets at the Lowe Alpine website look to be parka-length.
