  1. I like the Windshadow a lot, but looking at the review of the newer ladies’ model where it notes a preference for the plainer elasticated cuffs over the velcro, I very much concur only with my comparison point being the old Windrider. I don’t find the velcro cuffs add anything much that a well set plain bound elasticated end doesn’t provide, plus it’s more fuss and more stuff to get caught on things. As long as they provide enough space to roll the sleeves up I think Less Is More there (in other words, I think the chaps’ model would benefit from that revision too.)

    While I’m a big fan of stretch downstairs I don’t think it matters so much in a jacket. It’s not a *bad* thing to have, but when I briefly tried on one of the notionally stretchy ones to see what difference it made over my original the answer was “not much, if any”.
