MSR Alterra Jacket 5 5 1 1
Very stylish and versatile jacket. This is only my second motorcycle jacket with my first being an Icon Anthem which I use for the South Texas Spring, Summer and early Fall. I was looking for something reasonably priced that was windproof/waterproof and could handle temps into the 40's or so. So far I've done my 20 mile commute mid 50's to mid 80's and the jacket has proved worthy. I've ended up really liking the fact that this jacket has no inner liners and allows me to add my own layers. The styling is very nice and I really like the pockets both inside and out. I tried a large first and it was way to big on me, I'm 6'1" and 180lbs. The medium fits very nicely with some room for layering on colder days. My only knock on the jacket is that the velcro from the main zipper flap and the velcro on the cuff adjustments tend to stick to each other at times. Not a big deal as the jacket is everything I hoped for overall. November 1, 2014

A shopper asked: How does the chest armor fit feel and hows the venting on hot days? Like the klim jackets with their full body armor, venting and water proofing but this sounds like a much less expensive option if it works well.Jessie, bmw rider Jun 15, 2015
