Default Jacket update

After taking into consideration the comments on the Pearl Izumi (Zephyrr)
and Performance Illuminite jackets I mentioned, I did some serious on-line
price shopping before making a decision.

Before pulling the trigger, I decided to give the LBS a shot, although I had
doubts regarding their ability to match the on-line catalog prices.

I was quite surprised at one store (Sunset Cyclery - St. Louis) and their
wide range of jackets.

They had numerous Pearl Izumi jackets, and competitively priced. However,
as I posted before, I am really surprised at the lack of reflective piping
on their jackets - especially on the back.

I plinked down 86 bills for a Cannondale Morphis Jacket. Plenty of
reflective piping and as a plus, the sleeves zip off and it turns into a
vest. It also appears to have plenty of venting, and is water resistance to
boot.

I have made a New Years pledge to start using the LBG more often!

The Pearl Izumi "Flash" series has reflective panels for night riding.

I'll have to look into Pearl Izumi jackets then, because I buy bike
clothing that specifically doesn't have reflective piping because I
don't like looking like a neon sign when I'm not on the bike. Nashbar
reflective leg bands are what I use and I store them right on the bike
so that they are always available when I ride. Reflective ankles are
more noticeable, due to their constant movement, than reflective piping
on a jacket.
