Good all over cover
Good wind protection
Hood fits over helmet
Slightly heavier & bulkier than an "emergency shell"
Not that we're (currently) getting, or have had, much rain in Southern California... I purchased the Ruckus over their thinner (but lighter) Ace Windbreaker. However, it does roll up small enough to fit in a jersey back pocket! And its light. The hood is detachable (via a zip), and it also fits over a helmet. Don't like wearing a hood over a helmet, there's an adjuster at the back to "tighten" it so its less bulkier and you could wear it under a helmet - or without a helmet. Riding in our local mountains can be cold, even if its not raining, and I was nicely warm wearing this jacket without being too hot. Its also pretty stylish to wear off the bike. Not sure I'd pay the recommended retail price, but I got mine when it was on sale at the Troy Lee Boutique store in Laguna Beach and I'm happy.
