It provides excellent protection. I have used it in 20 minutes of cold rain and I stayed dry. I rode to work this AM in 29-31 degrees and was toasty (caveat: I was wearing my Powerlet too, as well as using a windscreen). I use the electric instead of the liner that comes with the jacket. Overall an excellent product. Negatives include heavy weight, I assume because of all the zippers and ventilation features which also make it so versatile. Also, collar Velcro a little tight if I interpose the liner between the jacket and my skin. On a long ride in colder weather I would recommend a more definitive wind protector on top of jacket.
