Dennis W. from Oregon

June 13, 2011
I picked up the FirstGear MeshTex jacket on close-out and could not be more pleased with it. I recently had the chance to ride from South Carolina to Oregon and the jacket worked great! With the liner out, I was comfortable in the 95 degree heat of the Eastern states - as long as I drank lots of water! In the crosswinds of the Central Plains I stayed cool and comfortable, while the snug cut of the jacket kept flapping to a minimum. In the mountains of the West I added an electric vest and the liner to handle the lower temps and a ten minute Nevada thunderstorm/deluge. I did find my comfort limits on a cold, after dark ride across central Oregon, but donning my rain gear provided enough extra wind resistance to make it all work. This is an impressive jacket!
