Anyone have any experience with the Firstgear Adventure Mesh Jacket?

Thinking of replacing my sporty mesh jacket with a 3/4 style plus liner

P.S.  Got some large gear I gotta move.

FREE to someone who will use it or pass it along to a new rider.

First Gear Leather-Mesh jacket, size-large





It has padding (not much) built into the shoulders, sleeves and back.  I slid down the road in it and it held up very well, just cosmetic.

There is no question what they were trying to sell.  They looked like good bags though.
I bought one of those add on windshield extenders from them last month.  I put it on today, we'll see if it does anything good.

More like a 4 minute commercial for SW Motech Dry bags, however I like how they look on the tiger XR   :naughty: :naughty:

I just got one from Dick's.  They had two sizes - one 30 in. wide (HUGE) and the other 24 in.  Not perfect for riding but half the price of the ones sold by Twisted, Aerostich, etc.  You can get them even cheaper at Jet.com

I just got a new piece of gear, and I love it!  It's a Speed and Strength Lunatic Fringe Mesh Jersey.

It's a Mesh shirt with built in armor and snug straps on the sides and arms.
I know these things are a compromise but for those days I take off my jacket and ride dirt roads.
These things are on close-out all over the web if you can find your size.

I got mine for $46 with FREE shipping.

Looks like a summer solution.  Even mesh gets hot
