Been looking thru CRC online to find a good cycling top that's gonna keep my Australianised Thin Skin warm on the RB Meet in March..

Does anyone here have a recommendation? Lightweight/Warm/Waterproof?

Gore N2s Jacket

Best goddam cycling clothing I ever bought me (nice english huh?)

Lightly water resistent
Breathable
Arms come off into gilet
Windproof
Fine 'Next to Skin' so only need a baselayer for almost all weathers
Fast drying
Good cut

Always seems to just work right in most conditions. No boil in the bag feeling, full zip in case you get too warm. Perfect. :D

Seconded on Gore kit - my jacket (sorry can't remember the exact model, but it's a good 4 years old now) does everything. It's kept me bone dry in some really bad weather and rolls up super small.

Get a decent long sleeve technical t-shirt if it's really cold, but a short sleeve is normally fine

I've got a rather nice mid nineties Pace Racing Gore-Tex jacket - vented and linerless so it's not too hot.
I would recommend one if you can find one.

I'm hoping it might come in a brighter colour too so I can use it as a biking commuter top later in the year..

Think that link's wrong mate, all I get is 'ubs.. Maybe right click on the actual jacket image/link, "Copy Link Location" or "Copy Shortcut"..?
