Well, I'm sure it will hold up a hell of a lot better than you will with no armour at all. I got the jacket last summer and can tell you it is very comfortable. You can feel the air moving through it at a walk, so imagine what it feels like going at speed. As far as protectability, it's better than nothing at all.

Should've mentioned that my friend went down at about 65 mph on a freeway shoulder with this jacket and walked away with bruises but kept all of his skin. He needed to replace the jacket, but sure got his money's worth.

Alright, dammit, I can't take it anymore. Apparel has ONE "r", not two!

Don't forget that it was the Firstgear Mesh-Tex jacket that took top honors in Motorcycle Consumer News' mesh jacket shootout- over the Joe Rocket, over something like 10 other jackets too. But keep in mind that these lightweight, free-flowing jackets are designed to offer more protection that a tee-shirt while keeping you just as cool, and reducing the sunburn. I wouldn't go roadracing in one.

Default not the best review eh?

I say that if you're going to review an item, do it properly.



Compare the item to other stuff, give it a rating, tell us if it was comfy, tell us if it sucked, and most of all give us a price.



I could have had your review (without the humor of course) from the Yam web site.
