Our Two Cents
This new LNX 2.0 jacket by Cortech is an updated version of their original long running LNX jacket. This is a sport styled full leather jacket for the ladies that need a sharp jacket with very good abrasion and crash protection.
The sizing of this jacket has been updated and the fit is more trim and sporty as compared to past styles. It looks sharp without additional bulk. For crash protection, this jacket comes with CE “turtle shell” type armor in the shoulders and elbows along with a foam back pad. This armor setup is very typical for sport styled jackets like this. All the armor is removable if you like.
The leather shell of the jacket has perforated leather panels down each arm and in each arm pit area. The perforated leather will allow quite a bit of air to flow through the leather shell. To add some warmth in cooler weather, the jacket comes with a removable vest-type liner. This liner will help some, but if you want to wear this jacket in colder weather, you’ll want to wear something under the jacket that will block wind such as a slim-fit windbreaker or similar athletic under-layer. Overall, I’d recommend this jacket for use in spring, summer and milder weather in the winter and summer.
With the liner removed, air can flow through these panels and then out the rear exhaust vent. To help with fit over the hips, there are zippered gussets at the waist. Also included with the jacket are both a full circumference zipper and a short rear zipper for connection to Cortech or Tour Master leather pants. :: 12-28-17
