MSR Alterra Jacket (Size MD Only) 5 5 2 2
Great all season jacket This jacket saved me from utah's unpredictable weather. I rode to work in balmy 60 degree weather only to emerge in 30 degree freezing rain 10 hours later. Undeterred I zipped up all possible vents and was on my way. I was wearing only a t-shirt underneath it and I can honestly say that as far as my torso was concerned it was still 60 and sunny. This jacket kept me warm and dry where I needed it most. When it's hotter there are a plethora of vents which keep me nice and cool while I ride. I'm very impressed by the functionality and look of this jacket and that the price didn't kill my wallet. Overall I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a great all around riding jacket. March 8, 2016
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
