Canari Men's Razor Eclipse Convertible Cycling Jacket
Nice jacket, great visibility, comfortable. Fit is slightly tight, went up to the next size to have room for an extra layer during the winter.

Recently purchased this jacket in order to provide greater visibility, especially for motorists approaching from behind. I ride mainly during the day, and the bright orange is remarkable - if a driver does not see me now, it most definitely will not be my fault! I have not ridden at night, but the reflective piping on the jacket is certainly very reflective and so would help with being seen at night, although I might choose a different, lighter color for night rides.
I have been in several rides in temperatures between 50 and 60 F, and find the jacket perfect for this temperature. Several reviews had mentioned that the jacket does not have sufficient ventilation; this may be the case in warmer weather, but not in these cool autumn temperatures.
Some reviewers mentioned the relatively flimsy zippers. The zippers are light, and one has to be careful not to snag the zipper flap, but the zippers work okay if one is careful.
Overall, I am, so far, very pleased with this jacket and would recommend it without hesitation.

Thoughtful Features for the Cyclist
I only recently discovered the Canari brand, but I'm quickly becoming a fan of the value of their products. This jacket is the most recent reason for that. Everything about it, from the high visibility color to the overall construction seems designed with the cyclist in mind. It's vented in the back and the sleeves zipper off if you only want a vest. There are five pockets to stash stuff, something a biker can never have too many of. The collar is lined with fleece so it won't chafe. The styling is great, and of course it has a longer back to cover you when you're leaning forward on the bike. The other Canari clothing products I've purchased are still in use and going strong. If this one is made as well, I'm sure I'll be using it years from now.

Outstanding biking jacket
I am an avid cyclist and have been looking for a yellow or orange wind/rain proof coat for a few years. This is the best product I have come across and that includes some for $200. The refelective arms and back make night riding a no worry situation and the orange stands out extremely well during daylight. It also breaks down into a vest if you want it to...great product!
