Gabba Ros vs. Original Gabba

I have been riding on the road in the new Gabba Ros for a few weeks now in the cold dry air of Colorado, where I do most of my training. Overall, I have been very impressed with the jacket, particularly in the area of wind-proofing. I have owned the original Gabba since I began riding a few years ago, and it has been my go to for anything cold, wet, or windy. This being the case, I was a little skeptical before trying out the new piece of kit, but I have been thoroughly impressed with it. I haven't been out in the wet yet, but have ridden in some legitimate cold and windy circumstances. As far as cold goes, in temperatures around 30-45 F this jacket shines. I have worn my older Gabba in colder conditions, and do like it better due to the zip attached sleeves that were not brought back in this generation. Recently, I went on a ride in some of the most gnarly conditions I have ever been in, with crosswind gusts up to 50mph and temperatures of around 40 F, and this jacket performed amazingly with only a set of Castelli arm warmers as other upper body protection. Four hours of these conditions with no indoor stops, and I was at a perfect internal temperature across a range of effort levels. Overall, I would recommend this jacket to anyone passionate about having a do-all jacket capable of tackling extreme riding conditions at a relatively light weight.
