Firstgear Mesh Tex Jacket 4.4 5 44 44
Top Quality By Firstgear This jacket is unbelievable for the protection, 3 season wear and price. The sizing is spot on if you go by the Firstgear chart. Revzilla rocks!! April 9, 2014
Good air flow and comfort Had to size this jacket out a little as Im tall and thin. Problem I always run into is the chest are because Im not big in this area. The jacket fits well in length and gerth and is a nice light weight change from my Jaunt 2 winter jacket. April 7, 2014
Excellent three season jacket. The description of this jacket in the video is right on. I am 5'10', 185 lbs. and the jacket in large fits perfectly. Since receiving it in March 2014, I have ridden in temperatures ranging from 42 F to 72 F with the windproof liner and occasionally, a sweatshirt and have been very comfortable. The only discomfort that I have noticed is at the front of the collar. It tends to rub against my neck. I would recommend the Mesh Tex jacket to anyone, if asked. April 1, 2014
Pretty much everything I expected. I bought this as a summer option jacket. I am new to riding and while I love the feel of the wind and freedom, local traffic conditions dictate the need for protection. After wearing this jacket for a complete warm weather season I can cay I am quite pleased. I have plenty of wind protection from my Goldwing 1500 so with the liner in I have been able to manage chilly weather comfortably and without the liner warm weather has been bearable. If I stand on the pegs to cool off the air flow is wonderful through this jacket. The shoulder and elbow pads adjust so I have been able to find a comfortable position and the back pad doesn't bother me. On really hot days I do have the urge to go without but can't justify not wearing the jacket. I'm 6'1 and have some midsection bulge which causes the lower portion to be a bit snug, but that is my problem not the jackets!! The shoulders and length are great and for the money of this Jacket I don't know why you would spend more. Great bang for the buck. January 21, 2014
Bought for a tall guy My boyfriend has problems finding gear that fits him since he is 6'5 but got this high-vis jacket in a Large-Tall for him for Christmas and he loves it. January 21, 2014
Price was right. Fit is acceptable for a "tall" jacket. At 6'5" 200# I'm rather lanky. Long arms 37" sleeve length. It could be a little longer (about an 1"). It's winter here in Michigan and I'm not currently able to ride :-( but RevZilla wanted a review! 1). Can't go wrong with RevZilla! Support, help video's, selection... 2). I bought a large tall. Fit is great. Has all the body armor. Has a removable inner liner. 3). Can't wait to give it a try. I believe this model is discontinued so selection will be diminishing... December 23, 2013
the fit of this jacket is nice I will like to be able to adjust the wrist fit a little better January 6, 2014
great value I'm a little heavy for 5'8" but didn't want to buy a large. The medium size fit great. I stopped to wash clothes on a week long late summer tour. I removed the pads washed the jacket and reinstalled them easily. I'm happy with my purchase. It's hard to believe you can get a jacket like this for the price. November 4, 2013

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
T O: I have many Joe Rocket Speedmaster pants, jackets. Have had two Joe Rocket Phoenix 2.0 & 5.0. Firstgear Mesh Tex is a top end mesh jacket!! Materials, stitching, fit, reflective strips front & back, inner zipper pocket, inner smartphone pocket, pulls on external zips. Run it through front loading Whilrpool Duet when buggy and looks new!! I appreciate Joe Rocket Phoenix but, Firstgear Mesh Tex is on another level!! Apr 16, 2014
Joseph k: I chose the Mesh Tex jacket because it was available in silver with very little black and had the option of upgrading the back protection. , I would have chosen white had it been a color option.. Apr 16, 2014
Gary Z: Suggested by operator. I explained my size and needs, and this jacket was recommended . Apr 11, 2014
Luis V: Good Jacket, good Air Flow. The Collar a bit rough on the neck, would be better with softer material. Apr 5, 2014
Bryce W: Like First Gear Products (own a Jaunt2) because it fits me well. Im 6.4 and hope this will do as well. Looking for a hot weather jacket that I can commute in and not show up at home or work drenched in sweat. Mar 16, 2014
Kenneth H: I like the quality of Firstgear products. This will be my second Firstgear jacket. Mar 11, 2014
ryan r: Hi-Viz, style, airflow and armor. Feb 23, 2014
Matts-Ola I: Safety is nr one issue when I purchase a jacket. Hi-viz was therefore the most important reason when I chose this jacket. Jan 10, 2014
M A: High visibility, and firstgear stuff is usually very good quality. Dec 30, 2013
Gregory G: At 6' 5" & 200 lbs I've been looking for a warm weather riding jacket in Hi-Viz. Nov 28, 2013
DAN H: Right price, right style, right fit. No way a European style would fit me. Aug 14, 2013
A shopper asked: Hi there, I am interested in buying this jacket.
The weird thing is the sizing chart. There is a gap of 2 inches between every size and my chest measurements fall in this gap.
I am rather tall and slim. My chest is 40.9', sleeve (from the front of my neck to my wrist) is 32.6' and sleeve measurement from shoulder to wrist is 25.6'
Can anybody please advise?

Craig H: These jackets seem to be on the small side. I'm 5'10, 145 pounds, and normally wear a size 40L Aerostich riding suit. I bought a small based on the size chart and the video review. It turned out to be far too small. I traded it for a medium, which fits fine when wearing just a t-shirt underneath. If I were to wear anything even slightly bulky, it would be tight. (Of course, I bought this jacket for when I ride in the tropics, so I'm never going to wear anything like a polar fleece sweater or something like that underneath.)

Depending on your actual size and what you plan to wear under it, you might want to consider getting a large. The chest might be fairly loose, but at least the sleeves and length wouldn't be 2" too short.

I should point out that the risk of getting the wrong size isn't horrible with RevZilla. I had to pay to return my original small jacket, but even including that cost it was reasonably priced and the jacket is pretty great for warm-weather riding when you want massive ventilation but also want protection.

Jack S: I have had mine for a year now. Works great as a summer jacket. Lots of air flow when riding and keeps the sun off my arms. To answer you question, should fit well on a slim person but you may find the sleeve length on the shorter size. Fits me fine but others say they would like longer sleeves. As most motorcycle gear rule-of-thumb: buy a little large. More room to move around and on those chilly nights you may want to have a sweatshirt on under the jacket or even a rain liner (rain liner as a wind breaker is great on cool summer rides.) Ride Safe.

lance h: I think this jacket and other Firstgear apparel are more of an American cut (loose fitting) than anything. I have this jacket in a XXL and it fits loose. This comes in handy on the cold days though, you can wear a rather big jacket underneath this. My only complaint about this jacket, is the sleeves are very long. But I am 5' 10", so maybe a taller person will have a better fit.
Overall I love this jacket, would recommend that the stockier the person to go a size up and the smaller rider go with their size or the next size down.

Gregory M: I HAVE THE SAME PRODUCT AND IT HAS BEEN A VERY GOOD JACKET....THE BRIGHT COLOR IS VISIBLE FOR SAFETY, THE FIT IS VERY GOOD AND THE QUALITY SPEAKS FOR ITSELF....I BOUGHT ONE SIZE UP FROM WHAT I USUALLY BUY AND IT FIT WELL...SUGGEST YOU GO UP A SIZE...EXCELLENT ARMOR FOR SAFETY AND FIT..GREG Dec 27, 2013

Gregory M: The Mesh TeX jacket runs a bit smaller than expected...this is only my opinion but buy one size larger than usual...otherwise, this is a great protective piece with good styling at a great price...Greg Dec 27, 2013

Ian L: Best to round up, especially if you're tall. The extra room might be useful too if you need to stuff some stuff in the cargo pocket to run errands or whatever. Dec 29, 2013

A shopper asked: As far as I understand the jacket doesn't include CE approved back protector. Please, could you recommend any CE approved product tht would fit well in the jacket? Dec 20, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (1) No (0)
Craig H: Although I can't recommend specific armor to fit inside the back pouch of this jacket, there are plenty of great back protectors that can easily be worn underneath. Just remove the silly thin foam pad that comes with the jacket (to provide enough room), strap on your own comfortable segmented full-coverage back protector, put on the jacket, and you're all set.

A shopper asked: does the jacket have belt loop straps in back? Aug 25, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
roadfly: no loops.... now that you mention it, belt loops could be useful because I use the inside of my jackets to carry stuff and without a way to chinch up the bottom of the jacket, my cargo has been known to shift around or even slip out a few times. Sep 24, 2012

CruzinDR: No, but there are cinch straps that allow you to tighten the bottom around your waist\hip. Hope this helps. Jan 3, 2013

Andrew D asked: I see this jacket has the CE rated armor, but how abrasion resistant is the cloth material? Thanks. Sep 24, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Craig H: Fortunately I haven't had to test the abrasion resistance, but the material appears to be hefty enough to withstand a "gravity test" at normal speeds even though the weave is relatively loose. It's nowhere near as robust as my Aerostich, of course, but it's a fair compromise for hot-weather riding. I bought this jacket specifically for a ride in Costa Rica, and it worked very well.

tom b: Don't know how abrasion resistant the material is as I have not been down but I find the shoulder pads to be very uncomfortable as they are not located in the correct position at least for me. Sep 24, 2013
