Our Two Cents
The Reactor 2.0 is a full mesh and leather sport jacket, primarily for warm weather street and sport riding. The main body is mostly mesh and there are leather overlays on the elbows and shoulders. The leather used is perforated, so it shouldn’t cut down on the jacket’s breathability (as compared to a mesh only jacket I mean). To help extend the jacket’s comfort range, you get a Dry Tech Liner as standard. The liner works great on cool mornings to take the chill off and can be easily removed and stored when it warms up. The armor in the shoulders and elbows of this jacket is a CE approved “turtle shell” molded rubber type. The back protector supplied is dual density. This jacket also has a couple unique and novel features: an MP3 player pocket with a grommet to pass your head phone cord through near the neck and a replacement face shield pocket. The face shield pocket feature is very imaginative. Take the “View Larger Pictures” link above to see the location of this pocket. When the shield is in place in the jacket it hangs around your lower torso on one side. The shape of the shield and the location of the pocket makes it to where you hardly notice the shield is there.
