I'm looking at the ThirtyTwo Shell Jacket Lowdown, Black 2012, and it's worth $160. I'm switching from insulated to shell jackets, and I'm wondering if the company ThirtyTwo make good jackets? Have you had one? Tell me what you think. If there's another company you like, tell me.
I think for the most part most main stream suppliers make decent jackets. $160 for a new 2012 jacket is probably on the more basic side of the scale so as long as you're not expecting a jacket full of goodies you'l be fine. I've ridden in some pretty basic jackets and haven't had any major problems.
