Firstgear is proud to announce the long-awaited return of the TPG Rainier Jacket. This jacket incorporates the most advanced technological features in motorcycle protective outerwear. The Rainier Jacket utilizes Cocona technology waterproof-breathable laminate for the most effective moisture transfer textile available anywhere.
The new TPG features the latest generation of D3O armor protection in the shoulders and elbows, T-5 Evo Pro, for the highest degree of impact protection exceeding all CE Level 2 standards.
Athletic fit: Thin, athletic, low body fat
Cocona waterproof-breathable shell
Level 2 D3O T-5 Evo Pro armor at shoulders and elbows
Sorry, Not Impressed...
I really wanted to like this jacket. For me, the lack of important features makes it over-priced for what you get.
First, The Good:
- The D30 armor is excellent.
- The fit is good for athletes and lean folks, as advertised.
- The jacket has a nice look to at.
-It's not a warm jacket, by any stretch of the imagination. The material is pretty lightweight. Any weather below 65 degrees requires you to layer clothing underneath.
- It's not a cool jacket, either. I didn't detect the breathe-ability of the material. The venting is minimal & not very effective.
- It has no reinforcement panels in the shoulders or elbows. One good get-off in the dirt may end the jacket's useability.
- Uninspired design: no hand-warmer pockets, no rabbit pouch and the front pockets are zippered closed at an odd & difficult to maneuver angle. The cuffs close with velcro but the design is lacking foldability - they basically just bunch up.
I think this jacket would be okay for some riders but if you are planning on any real adventure touring, I would recommend a different, more robust jacket (of which many are available, at a lower price) and upgrading the armor (if not equipped) to some D30 pads.
In the end, I sent the jacket back and my search continues.

First Gear has quality problems with this new Jacket model. Cheaped out where they should'nt.
Was received promptly after ordering and in factory sealed packaging. thought it nice a sturdy clothes hanger was included. All the zippers and buckles were wrapped in Styrofoam sheeting to prevent damage. Unfortunately while checking it out on Christmas morning my hand went straight through the inside lining right side chest pocket. The bottom of the pocket stitching was completely gone! There was some evidence of thread pieces were there but hey should have been caught by the CHINESE factory quality control.
For such a high end Jacket and being "First Gear" I'm very disappointed. And such a cheap material the pocket is made from. Yuch on you First Gear. Why did you cheap out on this pocket? you took such care to make the front outside pockets so tuff. They'll last forever. Bottom line Revezilla did their part. First Gear fell on their face.

Like the fit and style
Have used the jacket for a month now and really like the feel, weight and wind protection. High visibility and crash padding inserts make the jacket a must have for in-town riding. I'm on a Can Am now and like the look with this bike vs leather on my two wheeler. Two thumbs up for this product.

I have had this jacket for about 3 weeks and can say it is waterproof. I've been in pouring rain for about 40 minutes straight a couple times and have been completely dry underneath along with my TPG Escape pants. Venting is good and the quality of materials are as good as anything else. My previous TPG liner works great underneath to stay warm. It doesn't zip together with the shell, but I have found that to not be a problem. You won't be disappointed with this jacket or how Firstgear stands behind their products.

Anthony G: I want a good quality jacket for tall skinny people and have been unable to find anything.Jan 22, 2014
A shopper asked:I see a lot about the Cocona laminate which seems great. What I can't find is what its material its laminated to, Abrasion resistance etc. Anyone know how durable this would be in a fall?Mar 29, 2014
Brandon R:I bought this jacket but subsequently returned it for several reasons, one of which was its apparent lack of abrasion resistant panels on the shell. From the look of the jacket, it would be susceptible to a lot damage from any fall, street or dirt.Apr 1, 2014
Peter W:Bit of a tough one.... I was lucky in that I fit the Firstgear sizing perfectly. 51" chest, 44" waist and 39" sleeve. That equates to a 2XLT which fits like it was tailored for me at 6'7" and 280 and still leaves space for a light thermal jacket underneath. The tail of the jacket comes right down to the seat plus an inch or so, so I would say that the body is long as well as the sleeves in the "tall" models. The long tail doesn't present a problem as the jacket is so soft and comfortable that you don't notice it. It also means you don't get any rain sneaking in.
Obviously, your build is such that you need a different size for waist fit and chest fit. I would advise that you speak to Firstgear directly.
Peter W asked:I have just bought one of these as it has just about everything I need. Anyone have any experience with the temps when it starts to get too warm to wear ? (I'm heading off on a multiday trip with temps that will move between 40 (10c) and 90 (30c) and I don't know if it's the best jacket to use)....Nov 17, 2013
