Firstgear Women's Mesh Tex Jacket 4.5 5 65 65
Very pleased First of all, thank you to Matt for taking time to obtain measurements for me, as I was debating between this and the Contour mesh. I am about 6' tall with orangutan arms, usually wear a medium, but decided on the large in this jacket as some of the reviews suggested it was a little on the small side and I wanted all the length I could get. It is a very good fit with a little room to spare but not so much I feel it needs to be taken in. The sleeves come to the top of my gloves which have a bit of a cuff. I really like how the elbow armor is in it's own pouch that can be adjusted up or down with the velcro in the lining. It is different from the design in my other gear. I imagine this could fit a wide range of women's builds. The front does not leave my midriff exposed. The longer back provides excellent coverage. The jacket breathes well in the humid Louisiana summer heat. The back armor seems to be the only exception to this, but I understand it is replaceable. The hi-vis yellow covers the majority of the surface of the jacket, providing visibility from all angles. There are definitely lots of pockets to put stuff too. Overall I am very pleased, and look forward to summer riding for years to come. July 31, 2014
Perfect Airflow and See-ability! Have a great Aerostich one-piece and also a Darien Jacket, but 80-90 temps made it tough to go with those so went looking for a light mesh with good protection. This is it! 5'6/160. Could've fit the Large...went with the XL so it'd be just slightly roomier and cooler. The other reviews are right. Collar needs some padding 'cause it can annoy with some scratchiness...and snap wrists could use Velcro. That said, the length is perfect on the bike and the immediate relief with feeling the air flow thru is amazing. I see cars notice me early due to the Hi Viz yellow. They see me early and they seem so proud of themselves...even waving at me as I pass by them in the intersection where they DIDN'T pull out in front of me or cut me off! I don't feel like a lightbulb either. It's a flattering cut even without being the countour model. Bugs trampoline off the material and wipe off easily. The zip and bottom snap protector are solid. The price-point is good and the mesh is working exactly as I'd hoped. Makes for an enjoyable ride on my BMW 650cs. I highly recommend and thank Revzilla for taking the time to do the video product reviews! It really helped me decide to buy. July 21, 2014
This is a great warm weather jacket. I love this jacket! I use the liner in the morning and remove it on my way home from work. I find that the jacket is comfortable between 55 - 95 degrees. I got the Neon Yellow/Black which is more neon green/black then it is yellow; it is very bright. I am 195 lbs, 6'-2", and 40" chest I bought the Large Tall and it fits me perfectly. August 18, 2014
Excellent product Great airflow for summer riding. But the zip in liner provides just enough warmth for chilly early morning runs with just a t-shirt underneath. Good fit as well. Comfortable. Has an inner pocket for your cell phone and zippers on outside pockets are easy to reach. All in all, I'm quite pleased with the jacket. August 11, 2014
Fits great, except for cuffs I went with FirstGear because they are one of the few makers that offer tall sizes. I bought a large tall FirstGear Kathmandu last year that fits me perfiectly, so I knew this jacket should fit me. That being said, I had ordered a FirstGear Rush Tex jacket prior to this one, and that large tall did not fit at all (the sleeves where 2"-3" too short). So much for my theory that all FirstGear large talls should fit the same. I called FirstGear, and was told that the Rush Tex is made at a different factory than the Kathmandu and the Mesh Tex, and they recommended that I exchange the Rush Tex for the Mesh Tex. The Mesh Tex fits my torso and arms perfectly, just like my Kathmandu does. The only complaint I have is that the cuffs are too large, and there is no adjustment to tighten them (the snap flap makes little or no difference). Being almost entirely Hi-Viz yellow, it's not a terribly stylish jacket (in this color, at least), but it's certainly highly visible. I replaced the supplied shoulder, elbow, and back pads with D3O pads, as they provide better, lighter, protection. It just so happened that the pads I had purchased to upgrade my old hi-viz jacket fit this one as well. August 4, 2014
Great Jacket Great Jacket, fit well. I am 6 foot, 170 and jacket with some room for liner/light jacket under. August 4, 2014
Good, cool jacket The only negatives are the fact that the jacket wants to ride back and tighten at my throat, but that's mostly due to the D30 CE 2 armor in the back, the stuff is heavy! Unzip 1/2 inch, works fine. And I wish there was adjustment in cuffs, sleeves, and body, but it works well for me. Comes with larger armor pockets so my D30-2 fits shoulders, elbows, but included armor is decent there withthout replacement. Flows lots of air, doesn't flop around. I really like Firstgear stuff and probably should have sprung for the Adventure Mesh, but it was 100 bucks more. All in all, good product. July 28, 2014
Great jacket Fits well, be sure to select the right size. Anthony's video was most helpful, I'm 5/11/178# and am wearing a MEDIUM. Normally I would have to get a large, but they are using the correct sizing, not Asian sizing as many cos do. The airflow is amazing, it's made well. Armor is well placed. I gave it a good not excellent because airflow is it's primart design element. Protection is secondary it looks like. I have not done abrasion or crash testing on it! I hope not to. It's a great piece, well built and I'm glad to have it. July 28, 2014
