    Cold weather jackets for clydes

    With the cooler season coming on in Australia in the next couple months, I am trying to source a good quality jacket that will fit my large body.

    Looking for something that will provide good waterproofing qualities as well as warmth for rides in the mid teens (celsius that is). I really like the GORE bikeware, but unfortunately I don't think they cater for the bigger folk looking at their website.

    Any thoughts on other manufacturers?

    I snagged a Columbia Omnitek shell in 5x three years ago. Great for rain and snow. Managed two hours in the teens with it.

    I just picked up a North Face Sentinel that will in XXL that is pretty roomy. Water resistant, Gore Windstopper, and reasonably priced. I was really looking for a XXXL so I could add a warmth layer but this one was big enough.
