Firstgear Rush Tex Jacket 4.7 5 10 10
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
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.

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
Only one thing wrong The only thing wrong with this jacket is that they need to redesign the bottom of the zipper. It's a bit clumsy to get the zipper started. Other than that, I'm so satisfied with it, for the price I paid. The armor is well hid within this coat, and all the right spots have a comfort lining. I use this coat commuting across town to work every day it's above 40, as well as on long blasts with friends. November 18, 2013
Great Value I am enjoying this jacket, except one small annoyance. The inner zipper fly gets in the way when you want to use the main zipper only. The size chart is correct for me. So far, I have worn it in 50-75 degree weather. I think the ventilation will be adequate for up to 90 deg. as long as you keep moving; Bets are off sitting at a light though. It's not perfect, but the price is very appealing, overall I think it's a good value. I did have to return a helmet for sizing issue, Revzilla people are nice to deal with. March 21, 2013
Great Jacket! The afternoons here in California are nice and warm, but the early mornings get cold, especially in the winter months. I ride a scooter to work and needed a jacket that would keep me warm in the morning and provide good air flow in the afternoon. This jacket does exactly that in addition to providing armor protection and plenty of practical features. As far as the fit goes, I am a tall guy (6' 3"), but I am not very big. I ordered size medium, but I was concerned the sleeves might be a bit too short. They were not. The fit is just perfect for me! March 4, 2013
Definitely...Bang for the Buck At under $150.00 this jacket really does give me bang for my buck. Good shoulder, elbow, and forearm protection. With the back compatible with the Klim Viper I will have good back protection as well. Anthony was not joking when he said this jacket has an American Cut. I am far from a European build and am in the process of getting healthier (losing weight). I ordered the XL and the jacket fits me comfortably welll. Currently there is no room for me to add layers underneath but with another 10lbs lost (currently 250lbs.) this jacket will fit me perfectly. I commuted home (35+ miles one way) this evening after work with temperatures in the high 40's. Without additional layering (just a long sleeve tshirt on underneath) I did feel a chill BUT I wasn't uncomfortably cold. To add, it felt as though I was in an airconditioned room. With an additional layer, I wouldn't have noticed the cold. The quality of the jacket seems it will withstand time and wear; only time will allow me to comment on the durability. But this jacket seems well made and just as good a quality as any regular winter jacket that I've invested in. After inspecting the jacket I see no flaws or loose threads. The zippers (external and internal) seem solid and are easy to zip open\closed (no snagging). I gave I high rating for features for a couple of different reasons. There are good sized hand pockets that zip up well and I think are waterproof (gotta watch the video again). There is a pocket on the interior intended for a cell phone. My Samsung G3 in an Otterbox cover fits in this pocket but the flap won't velcro shut. Had my G3 no protector or a one layered one it would fit perfectly. There is also a pocket that can be accessed near the chest under the first zipper. A good place for my house keys to go into. As for my Revzilla experience. As with the Alpine Stars boots I purchased from them the video was very helpful in my decision to purchase. I shopped at other sites for better pricing and none could beat Revzilla. In addition, I took advantage of a free shipping promotion. I received my jacket today when I was expecting it tomorrow afternoon. Thanks again Revzilla! If you're looking for a good quality, protective, and relatively inexpensive jacket I highly recommend Firstgear's Rush Tex. And of course, don't bother purchasing anywhere else...Revzilla is a top notch outfit! January 3, 2013

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
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: 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
