I have ridden many jackets and many pants in my 13 years of riding but this one has exceeded them all. I usually go through 2 pairs of pants a season and at least one jacket. I put about 120 days on my homeschool gear this past season in NW weather. Rain, freezing rain, ass deep pow, ice, pretty much everything. The jacket and pants kept me dry and comfortable riding in all conditions. The pants probably took the most beating just because of parking lots and such but I am happy to say the cuffs are still solid! Another great thing is the jacket pant interface, say goodbye to snow in your pants! I recommend homeschool to everybody I know. Its truly amazing. Durable, waterproof, and breathable...BUY IT!
