This jacket's waterproof, three-layer fleece construction allows it to be both waterproof and breathable. The waterproof zippered front allows the style and convenience of a zip-front hoody, while maintaining waterproof integrity of the jacket. Self-actuated pull cords for easy adjustment of the hood and waist. Waterproof zippered hand warmer pockets. Reflective Cortech logos on the front and rear. Armortex® material panels under shoulder and elbow patches provide increased protection and abrasion resistance, but PLEASE NOTE: The Cortech WP Fleece Hoody jacket is NOT a replacement for protective riding gear and equipment.

Versitle, light, and robust Jacket
Comments about Cortech WP Fleece Hoody Jacket:
I've been looking for a lighter weight jacket then my 9 pound heavy duty leather coat that I can easily pack into my bags and that was still robust enough to keep me warm in the colder fall riding season. I got the XXL witch was WAY bigger then I expected it to be. I assume perhaps this jacket is made to go over your primary jacket but I would much prefer to wear it as a first or second layer instead. I returned it for an XL and it was a much better fit and still roomy in the shoulders. The construction is pretty simple, it's a basic hoody fleece with a tough, rigid lining material to help make it wind and water proof. There is also a added layer of elbow and shoulder protection but to be honest I don't think it will protect you from much more then mild road burn if you were to take a spill with only it on. The warm large pockets and hood are nice to have, especially if you often combine your riding trips with hiking and camping like me. It's taller then most riding jackets I've owned so it comes down to about mid thigh on me. When I sit on the bike the rigid material tends to bunch up a bit around my waist witch took some getting used to but it flatens out pretty quick once you reach 30-40mph. Performance wise I have rode in 50 degree weather and only started to wish I had worn a long sleeve shirt rather then just a t-shirt underneath at about 50-60 mph witch is pretty much what I was looking for in a light jacket. I imagine if I were to wear my leather over it I would still be somewhat comfortable at 40 degrees and below. It offers pretty decent neck protection as well when zipped up although when I ride without a windshield and passenger the hood tends to flap around a bit in the draft at times witch doesn't really bother me personaly unless I am looking over my shoulder to check my blind spot. I suppose I could just tuck the hood inside the jacket if need be.Overall I would describe this Hoody as a jack of all trades. Durable/weather proof enough to throw on and cruise the highway in crisp weather or under a heavy jacket when winter rolls around. And casual/light enough to wear it off the road to where ever nature's trail or the side walk takes me.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
