SO... you guys that don't really subscribe to the whole lower priced gear possibility are really gonna ruffle up on this one...
I kind of get the cause for ruffle I guess... but at the end of the day... the rest of the world has access to the same materials and many-to-most of the high-end brand jackets are made in the same areas if not the same buildings (That is not an assumption. That is a fact.). So truthfully, it's no wonder that many of these jackets are not only viable gear options but that they are also getting excellent / consistent reviews across the board.
After actually doing the research myself at length...
I am personally of the opinion that it only stands to reason that it doesn't take 3-4-5-600-1000 dollar price tag to make and offer a decent riding jacket. I can hear a 1000 scoffs a 100 miles wide each now as this is read... but it's just true nonetheless.
I discovered the following deal early this morning after posting the above video on the matter to Facebook.
I muttered to myself... "Oh the irony is indeed palpable now isn't it?" I thought $59 was an absurd price for a riding jacket... but $43? I was speechless. I decided to dig in a little bit at that point. I just knew there had to be something fishy... something I had originally overlooked... And I'll be damned if my deeper dig didn't simply further validate this HWK Adventure jacket-- way moreso even than I had originally claimed. I was going to include the findings of that 'deeper-dig' here but decided not to. I've decided instead to make this statement / challenge:
Go look for yourself. Don't take my word for it. Google it. Google HWK Adventure Jacket Reviews. They go on for a country mile.
None of the links have found it for the price we have (because we are ninjas like that. haha) But the reviews are solid and consistent.
Prior I had just read the reviews of the Amazon sellers and listened to what people had to say about it on Facebook. ( Which I'll note: The only naysayers of the HWK adventure jacket on Facebook were from people who had literally never seen or heard of it. While inversely, every person who had ACTUAL experience with the jacket had nothing but good reports to share.
Enough Yappin' ... Where's The jacket!?

This following older video (2018) might piss you off a little. If it does you might want to think about why that is so. For the other half of you who get it we'd ask that you do your best in your streets and trails to stand against this epidemic factor in ADV by accepting one and all by the real kindred factor-- the throttle and love of the sport... instead of their attire.
