  • Go Means Go! Review: Chrome De Haro Windbreaker | GO MEANS GO
    size medium fit me perfectly I was comfortable wearing it on the bike and its simple clean look allows you to blend in with regular folk once you are off the bike But due to the overheating issues I temporarily stopped using the jacket all together It sat packed up on my dresser for a couple weeks until I realized the true reason to own this jacket it is packable and lightweight Stuffed into its pouch it measures roughly 9 x 6 and weighs 200 grams It now usually lives packed up at the bottom of my bag I can be out during the day without a jacket and then pull out the De Haro when the temperature drops in the evening Its much easier to carry around all day than my heavier jackets and because it doesn t breath that well it actually does provide a surprising amount of warmth for how lightweight it is It is the perfect just in case jacket The rear pocket is large enough to stash some larger items if you aren t wearing a bag and the two front breast pockets are big enough to fit a 12oz can of beer each The two way zipper is handy and the reversible cuffs offer a little reflective flare for night time safety Despite being light weight the jacket has proved to be pretty durable so far The hood has no way to secure itself and can act as a parachute when underway The lack of front hand pockets is annoying at times as well but the lack of options such as these is part of what keeps the De Haro lightweight so I think its worth the trade off If you are looking for a good do all jacket this isn t it But
