Will it fit? Yes. Is the hose easy to route? Yes
However, the pocket is a bit large and the bladder may flop around.

Great looking jacket, a good choice for riding in west Texas I'd guess. Question for you though, does the hi-viz version meet the requirements for military personnel?

Thanks,
Bill

from my understanding, the jacket should have hi viz fabrics and 360 degree reflective - so i do think this will be ok. if the requirement is more hi viz fabric - the jacket can be ordered according. Many military personnel wear our hi viz suits on their bases. Hopefully one of them can comment regarding this particular color scheme.

Question

So a 3XL is only a 46 chest? Then it goes to custom sizing for an extra $150 ? I thought that everything was bigger in Texas,.

How well does the perforated Cordura perform as far as abrasion and tearing, compared to regular Cordura and mesh polyester? Do you have any testing data?

Another use for the back pocket.....

Great Jacket! I'm also wondering if that back pocket could also be used to poke the rear strut of a Leatt into? How do you think that it would fit with a pressure suit underneath, plenty of room or would it be best to go one size up?

Cheers,

Adrian

It looks like the holes are cut into a solid woven cordura fabric. How does the fabric hold up to fraying over time, particularly if it is washed?

thats correct - its the same Cordura we use for the Power Shell & Navigator

we have not seen any fraying - the Cordura is perforated with great care. The same perforated Cordura is used on the Air Shell and has been receiving very positive feedback

i think for a proper pressure suit a larger size may be required

Just curious. Looks like a nice jacket
Just what I was thinking as I saw the pic of the back protector, in my experience only the Rukka Air back protector has good air flow IMHO.

I've even taken a 1" hole saw to a few of them to increase flow

That is a great looking jacket BTW.

I really liked the harness in my Klim ADV jacket, made it feel so secure and part of you and figure the kidney belt will be reasonably close.

It's a great time we live in with technology and smart thinkers making a lot of new special gear for us to ride in.
