No, didn't end up trying for it...I gather the new owner is not you then?

The big back pocket has a metal eylet hole on the inside if you put the hose through this and run round the bottom inside the jacket and up inside the left zipper through the 2 velcro loops and then through the jacket holes and out through the little rubber grommet at the front.

How is the perfomance of this jacket about the rain?

I suspect it sucks... I havn't used it in lots of rain but I believe it will leak around the whole collar zip area cause it lets cold air in

I'm finding it not real warm for Canberra winter and just wearing pile/wool underneath doesn't cut it due to cold air getting in. I have been wearing a couple of layers of icebreaker wool with my pushbike waterproof jacket under the KTM jacket. This seems to work OK but suspect I'll still get wet if it rains lots....

Not great - but better than I expected.

I got farkin soaked in Portugal. Absolutely pissed with rain. I got wet - and I had to rely on a heated vest to keep warm.

The main water leakage is the front zip.

The zippered pockets & other sealed pockets stayed remarkably dry.
The sleaves soak up water - which then runs into your gloves (when you stop or stand up or let your arms hang by your sides)

But all in all, much better than not having a jacket on.
