    What jacket is this?(Help Needed)

    Hello all,

    I need some help with a jacket. I'm looking for something to wear in temperature ranges from 30-55F that is water resistant and breathable. I thought I was dead set on the ALP-X 2.0 WINDSTOPPER® Soft Shell Zip-Off Jacket but now I'm not sure. I'd like to keep it under $200. Something with some warmth would be great. Any suggestion for something that won't break the bank?

    I think that jacket is great for the colder temps, but I would only wear it as a vest until it was in the mid 30's. For the temperature range you are looking for, I think you would do better with something lighter weight over a long sleeve jersey.

    I ride a long sleeve jersey, then have a simple removable sleeve wind jacket over that (I use the Novara conversion jacket). I find that I have a lot more options for temperature range with that outer wind shell, coupled with different weight under garments.
