Great protection Im sure but for any kind of dual purpose dirt riding its too restrictive and hot,there should be big panels on the front/back that open up,but then you wouldnt have all the protection. I thought I would use it for street riding but walking around in it feels like Im trapped in a weight suit.
Lotsa guys love em so it must be just me.
Did you open the pit, front and rear vents ??????? I find this jacket to be the best all round 4 season garment available. My AreoStich was a sweatbox in hot weather. It was like wearing a plastic bag
