This jacket was worn and reviewed by Chris, in temps from low-60s to upper-80s, both clear, sunny days and cool rainy days (since the review), and has performed admirably. How can you win this? Reply to this post on http://thepacepodcast.com with a link to your current jacket (either a picture of yours, or the MFG's website for the same model), and give us a few words on why you chose it, how well it's lived up to your expectations, and if you would recommend it to others. We'll compile this data and come up with a "Listener's recommendation list", and post it. (extra credit for pictures of older, rattier but beloved jackets!) 10534196_10152661907260586_4518725234066858704_nWinner will be chosen at random from those submitting a response.

Joe Rocket & Power Trip

On this past week's episode, I discussed the "Big Air" ventilation system on the Dakota II jacket review. Some years and versions of the Joe Rocket Ballistic (and I believe the later-years Meteor?) also included that. Here's a link to a recent version of the Ballistic jacket that includes this same air management system. It's a neat design and I like it quite a bit. There's no ambiguity on whether the air will it you just right and flow into the vents. The jacket front *IS* the vent, so it's kind of a no-brainer. Anyway, just thought I'd take a minute and toss out that note.

We’ve got news... Lots and lots of... Ok, that’s just a flat out lie. There’s really not much news, but what we do have is exciting. First, gear for kids! Bilt, Cycle Gear’s house brand, has a full line of gear for kids. Everything from classic Fonzie leather to high-tech textile 4-season gear. Check it out. Also from the “hey, this is pretty cool” files, sales of the Japanese big-four are up. While the numbers we have reflect Japanese domestic sales, anecdotally, this trend seems to be strong here in the USA, too. Also, looking for tires? Avon has a nice rebate on a few popular models[1]. 1 - please note, this isn’t an advertisement or paid endorsement of Avon tires. We’re just reporting the news. Links: Feedback:
