So I bought the Teknic Sprint jacket back in the beginning of winter because I wanted to ride throughout the year and the price was right ($150). Teknic had announced they were going out of business so Revzilla was offloading their stuff at half the price. I wanted to put it through the motions before recommending it... and now I can say it's worth every penny.

I started looking at all-season jackets (First Gear, Olympia..) in the $300 price range before picking up the Teknic jacket, but all of them seemed to be missing something or didn't fit quite right. Finally decided it was worth a flyer and it turned out to be perfect. Plenty of pockets, rain hood, beefy zippers, definitely waterproof, and WARM! Our winters don't get as frosty as some, but I've had it at 30 degrees doing 60+ and everything else gets cold before my torso does. I think it's safe to say it would do 20 degrees easily. Revzilla sizing seems pretty spot on, as I got a 42 and it's a bit big, but I always have a hoodie on so it works out well.

It looks like Rezvilla is down to one size of the Sprint, but the Freeway is the "big brother" and I'm guessing just as good if not better (and the same price the Sprint was when I bought it!). So if you're looking for a jacket for the spring or just want a good deal- they're totally worth every penny of their original prices and a total steal at what they are selling for.
