David Millar says:
Bad weather jacket, water-repellent + windproof + breathable.
Designed for riding in storms (or hiding under bridges).
"K61 Marina Cove, Hebe Haven. That was my Hong Kong home, and
where I first began road cycling. For those who don't know, HK is
in Southeast Asia, which means it has a monsoon season and with it
come typhoons, which in any other part of the world would be called
hurricanes. This jacket is designed for bad weather, the kind of
weather I actually used to enjoy riding in back in my HK days. It
is constructed to keep you dry when you have no choice but to get
wet. It's made of a water-repellent and windproof material that
Unlike traditional rain jackets it is tailored to fit, meaning
that on the bike you won't feel like you're dragging a parachute,
and if the weather is too atrocious you can also sit in a café and
not look like you've been shipwrecked. I chose Rosso Fuoco
primarily because of the visibility it offers, because often when
you're caught in a storm there are only two concerns: protection
from the weather and protection from vehicles. The K61 is designed
to protect you."
