The Kathmandu is a solid overall adventure jacket. While I have not been able to test the waterproofedness of the jacket yet it is of sound construction. The liner is pretty warm although being summer time I cannot say how warm in cold weather riding. Neoprene around the wrists makes it snug but a little annoying to get off bare skin. The included hydration pack is a nice addition. Got mine in black and it does absorb the suns rays so a brighter color may be a smarter choice. Also the high vis piping along the jacket is nice.
Yes, I recommend this product.
