    Once I got the sizing right I've been loving this jacket! I went on a decent length ride today with this jacket, not the coldest or rainiest ride I've taken but it this jacket was super comfortable on the ride. I rode last night in a decent rainstorm and it kept me 100% dry, the is awesome because the draw strings keep it in place. On the long ride today, I wore arm warmers under the jacket and it stopped all wind, after the ride we grabbed a burrito and it started getting cold, the high cooler and neck strap kept the heat in and kept me warm on the ride home. The back pass through pocket held a small water bottle which helped on the long ride, but it could store a lot, tools, spare tire tube or even a light weight sweatshirt.
    The hood stows well, it's a small light weight hood so it's not too bulky when stowed. The jacket also isn't to bulky it's self so you can through it in a backpack and still have room for your beer etc, in case it gets rainy.
    The one thing I would have to ding this jacket on is its zippers, while they work and are actually very well hidden, the actual tabs to pull the zipper are pretty small. I had to stop riding and remove my glove access them, which is annoying, but not the end of the world. I plan to tie a string in them to make it easier to zip/ unzip the zippers.
    To end on a good note, the jackets front pockets are huge! I put my cellphone in one, to keep me from swearing all over it and my wallet in the other and had plenty of room for other stuff, cliff bar snacks, lights gloves etc and it still wasn't a bother while ridding.
    Bottom line the jacket looks awesome on or off the bike, is simple yet functional and is not a terrible price. It could double as a snowboard jacket or even just a rain jacket while dressed up just as well a legit all weather riding jacket. Must have for the biker who rides in rain bust still wants to look good doing it. Thanks chrome, and btw your costumer service was awesome and helped me deal with me ordering the wrong size!

    Initially I loved this jacket. I remember the first downpour I got caught in during my commute home wearing it. When I got home I unzipped it to find my undershirt perfectly dry. I was impressed and the fit was perfect for cycling as all the other gear I've bought from Chrome. If I had written this review immediately after being the Storm I'd have given it 5 stars. Fast forward to it's second season rain season and it's barely water resistant. The waterproofing material on the inside has been steadily breaking down and peeling off. I took it into my local Chrome store and was told that sweat and oils from skin cause it to break down. I always wear under layers so bare skin is never touching the surface of the coat so I don't quite understand this reasoning. The last time I wore it I found water seeping in through the hood and shoulders. I couldn't find any detailed information on Chrome's trademarked Storm waterproof technology so I'm not sure what goes into it. From what I understand the only truly waterproof breathable materials are Goretex or Polartec type fabrics. The Storm appears to be only nylon with a rubber like substance coating the inside of the jacket. I recently bought the Mission Workshops Orion jacket which uses the Polartec fabric and after several months of riding in the rain it's proven to be far superior to this jacket. Yes, it cost more than twice as much as the Storm but it is truly waterproof, breathable and flexible. It is really expensive but the material is backed by science and it works. I love Chrome gear and have never been disappointed until now. The Storm looks great and fits perfect but when it comes down to it, it does not hold up against the elements. I'm hoping Chrome will improve on the design and incorporate better materials that have been proven to be waterproof and breathable.

    I really like this jacket. I had the original Storm Cobra and I would have to say that this is a big improvement. The jacket is more comfortable overall. It fits a little bit larger than the previous version, but not by much. I live in Portland, Oregon and it rains here... this jacket has been amazing. I have no worries braving the elements in this bad boy. The hood is large and has two different cinches to make sure it fits with or without a helmet. My only complaint would be how tall the collar zips up, but this is a minor complaint at the most.

    Nice Jacket- wow it costs a lot of money...

    I got a small, and fits me decently as a 5'10" (okay 5' 9.5") 150lbs guy. Medium might have been a better choice if I wanted to layer up a bit more, but I was looking for a spring/summer/fall jacket. Seems decently waterproof, maybe a little more 'heavily water resistant." Not super breathable, but on par with what you would expect to get with something as water repellant as this. Shoulder slits allow for riding in a more aggressive position without hulking out of the jacket and longer back keeps my crack relatively hidden. Reflective aspects seemed to have all but disappeared with one wash- nothing a little scotch lite can't fix. I like the jacket, it is well made but expensive- but that is what you expect from Chrome- decent, durable goods that cost more than a mid-level bike frameset.

    I didn't realize the 2.0 took away the features I loved about the original storm. First off the jacket is heavy, like really heavy. That's not something I want to worry about when riding. I wear a small in the original storm and this small fits more like a medium! The sleeves go way over my arms and the bottom of the coat near the waist fits more like a dress. Why did Chrome get rid of the drawstring tighteners on the bottom? Also getting rid of the armpit zips makes no sense to me, that was one of the best features. I often question whether Chrome is testing their clothing with actual bike messengers, because I showed four messengers here in Portland, Oregon and they all agreed this update is terrible. I really wanted to like this jacket especially since my original storm can't even handle a light drizzle in Portland anymore. I'll stick to your bags.

    I wanted to have a jacket that I could use for 3.5 seasons. Having a jacket that was waterproof was the most important feature, but the Storm Cobra 2.0 has so much more to offer. I love the pockets! Classic rear pocket to stow away small items when I am biking around the city and the stylish chest pocket. I've found that it can be an excellent winter shell if you layer it correctly depending on the weather. When not riding, I tend to layer it with light to mid weight base layer, merino wool hoodie and if it drops below 20F add a ultra-light down or primaloft mid-layer and you are good to go. As far as the sizing goes, I got a M and I'm 6' & 175lb. It fits snug with my under layers. A Large would fit better if you just wanted to make it your dedicated winter shell. I wanted a 3 season jacket, so I went with the medium because it's more form-fitting. It's little tight in the back when layered but not uncomfortable due to Reveal Raglan openings. Great buy and I would highly recommend making this part of your essential bike gear.
