I SWORE I would NEVER, use a jacket for ANY of my riding,EVER! I was always a layer and VEST kinda guy. I felt TRAPPED in any kind of jacket i would wear. Boy, how things have changed! Through the....suggestion of a few of my riding friends,I gave this jacket a shot. In the words of infamy,why did i wait so long?This guy does it ALL! And the VERSITILITY,BUILD QUALITY,and funcionality makes it feel like i'm not wearing a jacket at all! Yes,i'm a TRUE CONVERSIONIST! If anyone out there is like i was,give this jacket a shot. I warn you though,you WILL CONVERT!
