Hey,
doing the tour de mont blanc in a few weeks. looking for a rain proof jacket, any recommendations from you guys?
50/50 use on and off bike, so doesn't have to be bike specific, but interested to see if you guys have any intel.
Cheers.

    I've been looking at these. Where did you order from for £115? And was it the full, or half length zip?
    Cheers
