Outdoor Research launched their new Ferrosi clothing line with two jackets and two shorts (one each mens and womens).  While not cycling specific, they have a lot of the technical features found on many urban/commuter and mountain bike clothes.  The men’s jacket, shown above, has a Napoleon chest pocket. The women’s has a zippered sleeve pocket.  Both are made with breathable soft shell shoulder/arm panels while the main body and cuffs are a stretch-woven abrasion- and wind-resistant Nylon/Spandex.
