Firstgear Rush Tex Jacket 4.4 5 26 26
Good Everyday Jacket Sizing/Fit: I am 5'10" height, ~160lbs, 40" chest, 34" waist I started out with ordering a size medium, it was way too loose in the chest and shoulder area, so I returned that and got a small - much better fit overall. I have removed the armor, but the small still fits about the same with it in. Style: I really like the simplicity/cleanness of this jacket, not much for logos. I removed the arm first gear logo badges, it is awesome that they are just stitched on and not also glued. The drop on the back is awesome, long enough to keep covered but short enough that I am not sitting on it. Durability: For the cost point it is seems to be very well constructed. Stitching is solid, zipper quality is good - have not broken nor had an issue yet with one, the fabric is heavy enough I don't foresee any issues with wear occurring anytime soon, and the fabric cleans up easily. Comfort: More than comfortable enough to walk around in if you stop somewhere. While riding, it does have a tendency to lift up in the shoulders for me which sometimes is enough to lift the pit seam into the arm pit. This could be due to the style of bike I ride allowing air to flow easily/directly into the wrist area, and only happens at freeway speeds. Due to the waist being closer to a snug fit, I have to unzip the bottom a slight amount to avoid pinching. Design changes that I would like to see: Either a double zipper on the current back vent or changing to two vertical vents instead of the one horizontal; making the waist just a little larger; and maybe making the inner zipper cover a little less floppy so it does not occasionally catch in the outer zipper. TL;DR; Great overall jacket, well worth the price. Sizing seems to require getting a size smaller than what is suggested by the measurements. June 25, 2015
First Jacket - Good Choice This is my first riding jacket, so I have no experience to compare, but this is a nice jacket. Whatever "American Cut" is this jacket is it - the torso cut is more girth, less length. I have been in a few real downpours in this jacket and I have had no issue at all. I commute in this jacket with a light sweater underneath and I have never been cold - I can certainly tell it is cold outside but I never feel it through this jacket. What you get with this jacket is less features and other non-essential niceties but you do get a top rate jacket with all the attention to detail and quality of First Gears higher priced products (as it seemed to me when shopping at a local dealer). I've only used this jacket in temps up to the low 60's so I can't really comment on the venting but I assume it is adequate. I have been very comfortable and dry in this jacket and I would recommend it without a doubt. April 19, 2015
Good stylish jacket Jacket was exactly what I was expecting. I've only used it a few times becasue its too warm for the 90+ summer days. I also havnt had a chance to try it out in rain. The fit was good, I got a medium so I could fit a sweatshirt underneath it in the winter time. The protection is average. I dont to feel that the jacket would protect me from a fall but do feel that the jacket will save my skin from road rash. The shoulder and elbow protection move a good amount. Comfort is great though and I am a business commenter so the look is great. July 28, 2014
No ventilation even though it has zippered vents they don't go through the windproof liner so they are completly useless. at 70 degress my arms were wet with sweat and they stayed that way. this jacket is hot and clammy. no better than the old pvc coated jackets. i returned it to Firstgear for the Jaunt 2 jacket. at least some of the vents go through the liner. the older Rush Tex jacket had a waterproof outer shell with waterproof vent zippers which was a much better jacket than the new Rush Tex. i really wanted a non waterproof jacket as i mostly ride when its nice out. who where's a rain coat when it nice out? Firstgear customer support is great. August 25, 2014
Excellent jacket for the money; very satisfied This jacket was just what I was looking for; simple design, waterproof, basic elbow & shoulder pads. May 5, 2014
WOW great jacket I bought this in XL size, I'm 5'9 240lbs, XL fits me great, the jacket its full of features, cell phone pocket on the left, "hidden pocket on the left as well, big pocket on the right all internal, a couple of "hand warmer" pockets on the outside. Two intake vents on the front near the shoulders and one big exhaust vent on the back,. Reflective piping on the back and front, and the "gears" first gear logo on each sleeve is also reflective while not vulgar or annoying. CE rated protectors on shoulders and elbows, foam protector on the back, but you can buy a DO3 back protector that fits. for $150 this is a great value, I use this for commuting to work everyday haven't tested the waterproofing as its not currently raining but it seams like it will hold up fine. April 14, 2014
Very nice but won't save your hide! Sharp looking and comfy on and off the bike and the fit was perfect (Size L for my 5'-11", 200 lb frame). Got this as a light weight, Hi-Viz commuter jacket and it serves that purpose nicely. But, in comparison to my two piece Roadcrafter, the abrasion resistance is non-existent. Do buy if you want to be seen and don't care about real crash protection. Don't buy if you think you'll actually be protected. After all that, it's a steal for the price. March 27, 2014
excellent jacket for the money Excellent quality for the money. I'm 5'10, 210 with a 46 inch chest and the xl fits perfect. This is the second order through Revzilla and I'm very impressed. I would recommend this jacket to others. February 3, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Matthew S: Simple styling, very functional, double zipper to keep the water out. Good jacket for every day use in the spring or fall, rain or shine. Jul 27, 2015
B R: nice fit, good for the money May 19, 2015
Tracey F: tried on at a local dealership, fit good with protection. will do the job for the money May 17, 2015
james m: I thought it would be as good as the previous generation Rush Tex Jacket. However it wasn't so I returned it. Okay, sure, you get lower viz reflective piping, a drop tail and a back armor pocket that holds something more then a cut down AlpineStars small back insert, but you lose the zippered vents at the arm cuffs and the two-zipper front is a pain, plus shoulder armor pockets are now velcro'd down and both elbow and shoulder pockets seem smaller; so I couldn't use the upgraded armor. Oct 21, 2014
Alexander H: Love the simplistic skyline of this coat. Decent ventilation and drop tail is awesome. Sweet coat have worn it many times now I love it. Only complaint is zipper on the inside of the coat on your shoulder blades digs into your back and hurts, I will remove the zipper handle. Dec 15, 2013
A shopper asked: The silver color on the body of this and other firstgear jackets appears almost white in pics and vids, yet some claim it is actually medium grey and I have seen pics elsewhere that appear very grey. Could somebody tell me what the silver color really looks like, I want a brighter jacket but am not ready for dayglo? May 24, 2014

James F: The color is definitely not white. I wouldn't call it light Grey either. It's more of a dull silver. Goes good with the black. It's not bright enough to be considered a day-glow. I wanted a jacket that would be more visible than my black jacket but it didn't seem to make a difference, the four wheelers still can't see me. May 24, 2014

I S: Its a silver/greys color, it is very very reflective, so if you wear it in the office and light hits it just the right way it will look like the piping and logo have batteries, I like this very much May 24, 2014

Brett W: It is a light to medium silver. It is reflective so depending on the light effects the brightness. In my opinion it is a good color. It's not a charcoal grey and it is not DOT White. May 24, 2014

A shopper asked: Is this jacket waterproof/rainproof? Or will I still need a rain jacket? Aug 14, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Nenad M: I live in Melbourne, Australia, I've ridden in moderately cold/wet weather with this jacket and I was quite comfortable. I have a maxi scooter (Suzuki Burgman 650) with a windscreen, which may help a bit, however I'm 6ft tall and still reasonably exposed to wind when sitting upright.

I've been in temperatures down to ~4 deg. C this past winter (June-September).

I hope this gives you some useful information for reference.

William C: I bought this jacket 4 months ago. I have ridden with it in the rain and it does seem to be waterproof. The Firstgear website clearly states: "Fully seam-taped waterproof and breathable drop liner for all-weather protection". Great jacket! Aug 15, 2013
Reply to William Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Matthan S: It is indeed waterproof! Firstgear's website says it comes "with a waterproof-breathable drop liner that's seam taped for complete wet weather protection." I haven't tried it in a vicious downpour, but it has been absolutely fantastic so far. Aug 15, 2013

A shopper asked: The guy in the video was apparently 46" chest and sizing chart gives that as XL but the video presenter said he was wearing a large - one size down. I am 42" chest and 34" waist and would normally go large but I guess I need a medium? Jun 11, 2015

David D: I got that jacket for my Dad who is your size (42 chest 34 waist) and the large fits a little snug on him to the point that when I got him a thicker back protector, he didn't like it. Jun 11, 2015

A shopper asked: I'm 5'9" 145 lbs with a 33" sleeve length. Would a small fit and allow me to fit a thin fleece under it when it hits the 50's, or should I go with a medium? Jun 26, 2014

Jody C: I am 5'7", 135lbs with 31" sleeve. I wear a small and have no trouble fitting a fleece under this jacket. In fact, the fit is a bit loose on me with just a t-shirt... I wear at least a sport poly/zip top under it (soaked in cold water during the summer, it's like having AC) for best fit. Oct 5, 2014
