Yes I know it's not a question about hardware ,but I'm looking for a waterproof softshell jacket, I've narrowed it down to two ,the Castelli Espresso & the Endura Stealth , any oppinions on either ? Please dont tell me to get the Assos Fugu jacket either, cos I'll scream realy LOUDLY if anyone does ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

Castelli nice but very limited pocket storage. Would recommend the Assos airblock jacket. Is the Endura stealth the jacket tested recently in Cycling Weekly?

Showers Pass not sure of the name, but it is super light weight, and works well.

The Endura Stealth is OK, very warm but sleeve length is a little short and it only has one pocket at the back. Would recommend the Castelli or Assos as more suitable to cycling.
