On 29th June 2007, I bought this jacket from Praveen Shirali (another BikeNomad and a colleague).
A much needed safety gear. Fit and finish is good (have not used any other jacket, except for a few plain leather ones). It fit me like it is made for my size 🙂 Best gear I have used for rain riding (100% rain protection as long as you don’t open the jacket in rain). No plans to crash test the jacket so that part will wait till lady luck is not with me.
– Hypertec technical fabric construction
– Aquapore Advanced waterproof, breathable membrane lining
– Upper chest & lower back ventilation system
– Sleeve stud adjusters
– Air-flow ventilation system
– Single shell CE Approved removable armor in shoulders and elbows
A technically advanced high performance breathable material. Designed to maximize abrasion resistance without compromising rider comfort. Hypertec has twice the abrasion resistance of nylon, and over fourteen times the durability of cotton.
The Aquapore Advanced system is an improved breathable, waterproof membrane. The membrane allows perspiration to transpire through but will not allow water in, providing 100% waterproof protection.
