    Oh God, the part where Elaine comes in and just starts whaling on George in that jacket is the best. Probably a top ten all time Seinfeld moment.

    Seems like the combination of a Gabba jacket and Rapha's old Brevet insulated jacket of a couple years back. Or an ultra-light Gabba. I wear my Rapha lightweight insulated jacket down to temps where I start pulling out my aging Gabba jacket. I can definitely see where the design comes from. I'd update to this jacket to replace my Gabba, if I found $450 in a pocket of my jeans while doing the wash.

    Logos are reflective. Something has to light up that jacket. Looks like it is even hard to photograph for the website and show any of the details. Swallows light. Should have put LEDs on it or something.

    Considering how good my Gore Shakedry jacket is and how good both my Rapha PT Polartec insulated jacket and vest are, I suspect that these are fantastic.

    A detailed comparison of how this improves upon the now EOL'd Shadow line might be compelling...
