Ehh. No vents, no practical pockets, no skirt or gaiters. The water resist is just a coating that will fade with time/washes and you'll have to reapply it.... It's also not ideal for wet days. And it's heavyweight, which pretty much defeats the entire purpose of a riding hoodie IMO. You might as well just get a real jacket unless you're willing to sacrifice everything for the sake of style.

Didn't you read the tech specs, I mean there right there under the photo. Recommended use is school, and layering. I'm sure it's like any other hoodie, good for warm spring days.

I usually ride hoodies till it gets in the 20s on the east coast. If I'm cold I just put some under armor under it. That hoodie will work for those warm days and just bring an extra one in case it gets wet.

Heavyweight means it's very insulated and good on cold winter days to keep you warm, in which case I would personally rather go with a real jacket with more features. On super cold days you could use this as a midlayer, but I think you're intending to use it as your outter layer. I would not recommend this for spring riding or warm-temperature days since the "heavyweight" seems to indicate its warmer than normal hoodies.

ive seen Chris Greiner ride with it, thats what caught my eye and made me want to buy it. I dont know what he wore under it, but it seemed that he didnt have any trouble with it.

eh

My friend has this exact hoodie and just wears it to school... its sick but pretty thin... personally I will ride in anything that looks good though since I tend to get really hot when I board and board east coast. with some really solid pants and a couple layers I don't see you having any huge problems as long as you also have a jacket.
