Jacket recommendations
« on: September 13, 2018, 11:31:26 AM »
Does anyone have any recommendations for a good touring jacket (that doesn't cost more than 400)?

I'm looking to get one with more venting after the heat of the summer showed the limitations of my current jacket. Also, I am doing more green laning so am working harder at lower speeds. Previously I was not keen on removable waterproof layer jackets but am beginning to see the benefit of them, even in the UK, over laminated.

An example of the type would be a Revit Sand 3/Urban

I use a Klim overland jacket, plenty of large vents and as its a gortex shell with armour good for venturing off road.

Now discontinued but you may find one online

Adventure Bike Rider have just tested some textile jackets in there Sep / Oct issue,

Oxford Montreal 3.0 and RST Pro Series Adventure 111 get highest scores for not a lot of money.

Wolf Tec-Tour Outlast and Rev-it Defender Pro also do well in the higher cost range..

I was going to recommend my jacket but it's since been discontinued, however it was made by Weise and fits my tall slim build well with sleeves that are long enough but without being baggy in the body. it's something I find hard to come by, so with my body shape would benefit from at least having a look.

This year I bought rebelhorn patrol jacket and pants. Great gear! Lots of ventilation, lots of pockets, level 2 protectors, camelbag pocket, sympatex removable membrane and soft shell lining that can be used as a independent jacket. I can definitely recommend. And whole costed not much more than 400GBP.

RIDE mag "November" issue is testing several textile jackets at around the 250 mark, some seem to be very good buys at the money, looking at the RIDE recommended "Wolf GT-S Titanium" great write up and British made,,
