Summer Jacket


Klim In For Summer And It’s The Most Functional Lightweight Mesh Jacket We Have Ever Reviewed. The Klim Induction jacket was introduced in 2014 and has been recently updated. The design and execution of this latest version may just make it the most functional lightweight mesh jacket that we have ever reviewed. Its high-visibility colouration …

Quattrotempi 4 U The Held Carese II jacket is designed to compete in the high-end category of all-season 3/4-length adventure-touring motorcycle jackets. The Carese II goes one better than most however, with “Quattrotempi” design. Quattrotempi, in Held parlance, means: Four seasons, four riding types (scooters, street riding, dual-sport and touring), four elements (rain, heat, wind, cold) …

Denim Jackets With CE-Rated Protection The Bull-it Carbon and Roadster jackets are an excellent blend of casual looks and tough protection. Neither jacket gives away its function as protective gear, as the styling of both jackets is subdued. In fact, if the protectors were removed, I see no reason that these jackets couldn’t be used …

Teiz Motorsports Sahara Jacket The Teiz Motorsports Sahara jacket is a comfortable, functional garment. It served me well throughout the entire 15 days of the western portion of the Trans America Trail ride. The fit — bespoke in this case — was great and if you don’t notice your gear when wearing it, it’s doing something right. The …

Joe Rocket Phoenix 5.0 Jacket Review The Joe Rocket Phoenix 5.0 jacket is, as its name implies, the fifth generation of what was once a ground-breaking design.

When the temps go up people tend wear clothes that cover less of their skin. This of course allows more air to flow over the skin, which then helps …

Tourmaster Intake Air 2 Jacket Review The Tourmaster Intake Air Series 2 is one of several Tourmaster jackets that have similar design features. It is available in a number of colors and it is a good choice for a mesh jacket for summer wear, or with the removable liners for cooler weather. It offers style and protection …

Dainese “Shotgun” Jacket Review Outstanding air flow, great looks, super-comfy stretch fabric and Dainese quality make this a current favorite for riding during the global heat-up of 2010. Ask your favorite search engine for a report on “July 2010 record temperatures” or “world temperatures July 2010” or the like and you’ll find results that will be …

Heavy-Duty Mesh for Summer You have to give a lot of credit to Icon. After all, they busted in to a market jam-packed with motorcycle clothing brands from A to Z and beyond. Yet they’ve managed to mix it up pretty nicely. Icon sort of just appeared out of nowhere a couple of years ago with a …

Joe Rocket Phoenix Review I’ll take a wild guess and say that something like 97% of motorcycling is done in fine weather. So one of the mysteries of motorcycling is why does it seem easier to dress for cold weather than warm? Most motorcycle clothing is heavy, bulky, windproof and water resistant. It seems designed …
