Louis Garneau Light Vento Jacket - Women's - 2010 BCS
The Louis Garneau Women's Light Vento Jacket helps you ignore the hail pellets and focus on your cycling partner's back tire. This weather-resistant, lightweight jacket protects you from the elements, and when the temperatures heat up simply zip off the detachable sleeves and stuff them into the Vento's zippered back pocket. Its UPF-20 rated fabric help shield you from the sun's nasty rays, and you can easily slip out the stowable hood in inclement weather.

The hood does not come off, but it does roll up and tuck under the collar.

Picked this up on steepandcheap for 45 bucks, and it was one of the best investments I've made in cycling gear. This jacket is perfect with sleeves from 40-65 degrees, and without sleeves from 60-80. It has a nice mesh interior that keeps you warm and helps wick moisture away. The ventilated pits are nice, but I often find myself getting a bit too sweaty (and I'm not a very sweaty lady). The zipper is nice, as you can zip from the top and bottom of the jacket. Lots of storage in the front pockets, back pocket, and small pocket in the sleeve. This is NOT waterproof, however it will keep you dry in short jaunts in the rain. I love this jacket, and if you're looking for something for spring/fall weather, you can't go wrong with it.
