Our Two Cents
The Women’s Dakota II jacket is a multi-season textile jacket with a nice feminine cut. This is a waterproof jacket that will work in a wide range of weather conditions. The climate control features found in this jacket are different from any I’ve seen before. This jacket has a three part closure system that effectively allows the rider to regulate the venting/waterproofing. Below the main zipper is a mesh closure system. The idea is that you can turn the solid textile jacket into a highly ventilated jacket simply by unzipping the main zipper and exposing the mesh closure underneath. Beneath the mesh closure is an overlapping waterproof closure (you would have this open and tucked back inside the jacket when using the mesh closure for venting). In the rear of the jacket there is a large zippered exhaust vent to help eliminate the “balloon effect” caused by the air coming into the jacket from the front. These climate control features are a little different, and a little hard to explain, so please take the “View Larger Pictures” link above to see our features pics. For protection this jacket comes with removable CE approved shoulder and elbow armor and a removable back pad. There are some adjustment straps in the back of the jacket along with sleeve and wrist adjustments allowing you to fine-tune the fit. Due to its versatility, I can see this jacket being a hit with touring riders.
Happy Customers Who Bought This Product
Love the jacket. The arms and hem are plenty long so no cold spots. The liner is super easy to get in and out. (Read more...)
