Nivek Its actually better if you go in to Zumiez knowing some stuff you're looking for. Print off some pages of jackets you like and bring them in, if they don't have the one you want on hand, they can probably get it for you. Most Zumiez stores in store stock is kinda pathetic. I work at one, I'd know.

Nivek Look at softshells. They're hoodies with the water and windproofing of a jacket. Neff makes a 6k, sessions makes a 5k. Burton, DC, and Airblaster all have one, but I'm not sure on the ratings. If you want a shell, Burton, Airblaster, Special Blend, Foursquare, and Sessions all make some really really basic shells. The Burton 5k shells like the launch are really comfortable.

I had an awesome set up by Titanium last season. It was a combo jacket. It has a warmer then hell green fluffy thing, then a black shell. I wore nothing but the shell form Feb. out. It did an awesome job on keeping out the rain and the spring snow, or should I say slush? And it was a good wind breaker.

Lightweight jackets

Ive been looking around for a coat due to getting sick of many years of riding with a hoody, but I like the feel of a hoody and layering since it is so light. Who makes any good jackets/shells that are just thick enough to keep the wind and water out but are still very light weight where I could wear a sweatshirt underneath comfortably? Any advice helps. Thanks.
