I only have one rain jacket, so I can't really give an objective opinion, but I can say that the First gear Jaunt T2 has zippered opening all over that jacket. The shoulder vents really pump a lot of air around my shoulders and back (where there are more vents). I didn't buy it because I did extensive research. I was in a cycle shop in Bend, Oregon called "Atomic Moto". I am not kidding, that's their name. Really nice people though. The owner, Brian, when I asked about Hi-Vis jackets, brought that one out. Tag said $199. He said that I could have it for $120. I bought it. Can't stand that bright yellow color, but it might just prevent some idiot from running me down. At my age, I don't bounce very well. In use, it is a very nice jacket. Warm, but vents well. Look into it. Atomic Moto has a web site. There prices are very good. Really nice people too!
