    Anybody using a Fox Storm Breaker jacket?

    I found some of these jackets on sale for about $40, and I was wondering if anybody is using one for commuting/winter riding?

    Are they waterproof? How do they fit?

    Thanks guys.

    I have a Fox Storm Shield Jacket. Im pretty sure that the storm breaker is a step above the stormvent and just below the stormshield. And if my memory serves me right it has the 5,000 mm waterproof fabric, so it sould be good as a rain jacket. As for the fit, I had a large when I bought it and it fit me well. Since then however i've lost weight and I don't fill it out as well. Is quite comfortable thought for a rain jacket.

    I saw it on ebay initially, then found out it was sold through a store called www.ecyclingstore.com.. they seem to have a decent amount of specials going on.

    That's the one I got through eCyclingStore too. It's nice. It's a lighter jacket so I wear it uder a vest or I was thinking under my snowboard jacket.

    Vegas, thanks for the response, but I can't seem to find any product description that actually states it as being "waterproof," so assuming that it is not completely waterproof does it at least dry quickly? For now I am going to use it mostly for commuting, which in DC can turn into a wet and cold ride in the winter time. Thanks again everybody, you're all a huge help.
