I had completely settled on getting a good proper waterproof jacket for commuting on C2W (Endura Flyte), but...I'm now thinking a good softshell might be a better use of the money (still waterproof enough for a 20min commute but warmer in the winter and more breathable).
Jacket would mainly be used for commuting but also some road riding as the winter creeps in and maybe also MTB once I get over the 'it's too new to get filthy' feeling.
The Endura Stealth II is way expensive but the Altura Varium seems similar but cheaper. Anyone got one?
Or how about an Endura Convert II softshell for maximum versatility?
(LBS stocks mainly Endura and Altura, hence focussing on those brands!)
