I stumbled across this riding jacket the other day whlie looking for something completely different. I don't know if it's the CCW rigging or the faux ab muscles or the grey on the sleeves... hell I don't what it is. Most likely all of it.
I wouldn't say its the perfect long range Adventure riding jacket but it definitely has some of the traits.
It's waterproof and breathable with laminated Tri-Tex 600 denier fabric. It has as all the right armor along with additional non-removable padding everywhere else. I was going to say that it wouldn't be very good for warm weather since the lining is no removable but I looked closer and the sleeves come off.
I've been aware of the company for some time and have put a couple of their products in our Amazon Storefront because they are priced very well AND because Xlement is an American based company.
I think over all though I fell in love with this jacket because it just looks completely badass, You know something Mad Max would endorse kinda badass. Check out the specs below...
