The Burton AK 2L Gore Tex Embark Jacket is highly waterproof, highly breathable and comes with 60g of prima loft insulation. The Burton Embark comes with 2 pit zips, a powder skirt, and a contoured hood. This jacket has a normal to relaxed fit that seems true to size. This would be a good jacket for someone who sees stormy wet weather, and wants to make sure they will stay warm and dry while riding. There's also room to layer underneath in case you need to add some extra warmth.
