RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Brad S: Needed breathable jacket that could be used in Spring/summer/fall weather Apr 14, 2014
Phillip B: Wanted an off-road touring jacket for hot weather. This my first "mesh" jacket and other brands that are reasonably priced did not have the same reputation for quality of workmanship and materials. My sizing is right between a Md and Lg but went with Md.

Great information from Phillip at your store. Thanks. Dakar pants may come next.

Jeff D: I ride a sport touring bike and this jacket uses higher quality materials than some of the others and I like that the owners focus on quality. Mar 25, 2014

Nathan B: 3 Season Jacket with multiple pockets and the tri layer system with dedicated armor in key locations. Feb 23, 2014
Corey H: This looks like a good 3+ season option for use both here in Florida in the summer, and travels to the Northeast in the spring and fall Jan 9, 2014
Scott S asked: OK, so I have watched the videos by Anthony for most of the Olympia line, more than once. I think I am settling on the Dakar (after considering the Ranger and Nomad). I am just wondering how we are defining 3 season? I want a jacket that will keep me cozy and warm at around 40° F in early spring and late fall. I also want comfortable ventilation (with liners out, of course) in 90° + temps in late summer. Mar 15, 2014

Michael M: I just recently bought a Dakar for the same reasons you want one. Even though it is mid spring where I am going on a trip it will have late fall, and early spring temperatures in the mornings and evenings in the desert and at the higher elevations but will be summertime during mid day and especially down in the basin of the Big Bend of Texas where it will be approaching 90 degrees.

I have both a summer jacket and a winter jacket but neither would fill the bill as a all around jacket as the Dakar. I live in Houston, Texas and the one time I have used the jacket it was cold when I left the house and was warm when I returned and the jacket preformed as I had hoped.

The main reason for purchasing the Olympia jacket is the versatility of the inner jacket that can be worn as a cold weather jacket off the bike. The ease of removal and installation to and from the outer shell is what I was looking for. The day I wore the jacket I used the outer shell for warmth away from the motorcycle and just slipped the out jacket over it zipped it up and was on my way. The other jackets I have it is a major effort to change out the linings and put them back in. Later that day I just wore the outer jacket and had plenty of ventilation.

One last note these skinny guys saying it is American fit is misleading. I wear XL shirts and jackets but order a XXL in the Dakar when I received I could not come close to zipping up the jacket so I ordered a XXXXL and sent the XXL back and the XXXXL fits.

I am very happy with my purchase it is what I had hoped it would be a very well thought out and high quality product. RevZilla did as they say sent me a return label and credited back to my debit card a ++ on all accounts.

Philip G: Just got the XXL today. Won't fit, ordering the XXXXL and returning the XXL. I am such a fatty. I normally wear XL or XXL coats and shirts like Michael. Mar 28, 2014
Nathan B: Greetings Scott,

I purchased the Dakar Dual Sport jacket to replace the Nomad I have had for two years. The Nomad was a solid jacket though after riding across the country (U.S.) a couple times I found it did not breath the way I needed; warmth was never an issue (down to 32F). The Dakar is much better in terms of airflow. The mesh panels on the arms and chest move air through the jacket quite well. I have been able to ride with all 3 layers down to 38F without getting uncomfortable. I ride a Kawasaki C14, hence I have a moderate amount of air flow around my frame. I cannot comment on the 90+, but only up to 75 and it was very comfortable. I can say the Nomad was far too warm for 90+. I was in a pressure cooker at 102 out in the desert with that jacket. I suspect the Dakar will be warm at 90+ but due to the modified venting will be manageable.

Ron F: Scott, I bought a dakar jacket this spring and have ridden in the cooler temps you mentioned. It did not keep me warm and cozy by itself. I have to wear a warm sweatshirt and an insulated vest too stay warm when riding in the 30's. But that is totally OK with me because most of the riding season is in warmer temps and I get too hot with the jackets that dont have mesh,just air openings. I bought the XL size and it fits me good. I am 212# and 6' tall. The fit is still comfortable with layers underneath thanks to adjustments in the jacket. It looks good and has good quality. PS- When I mention it didnt keep me warm at colder temps w/o layers I am talking highway speeds(50-70mph),where you really get the wind-chill effect. When I hit the dirt roads to go exploring it was OK w/o much underneath. Apr 10, 2014

A shopper asked: There are eight (8) pockets; where are they located? Which ones are waterproof?

Thanks.

Nathan B: On the reverse side of the jacket there is a single large waterproof pocket at your waist, glutes level. On the front side there are 8 non-waterproof pockets. There are 3 pockets at hip level either side of the jacket and 2 pockets at torso level. In staring at a front view of the jacket you have two pockets right below the shoulder vents (look for the rubber tabs near the main zipper on a pair of flaps - one flap has the Olympia logo). The next two pockets are the small flap pockets at the hip level on the jacket (both have rubber tabs near the main zipper). If you pull up on the rubber tab either side at the hip level pockets you will expose another pocket bringing the count to 6 pockets. The final two on the front of the jacket are at hip level on the side of the jacket behind the flap pockets. Mar 15, 2014

Jacket Size Guidelines
We suggest you use these size charts as a general guide. Variables in weight distribution and height may alter the appropriate size range indicated. As a general rule Olympia Jackets are designed in America, with an "American" body in mind. As such, you will find that Olympia tend to fit more generously then European brands (such as REV'IT!, Dainese, Alpinestars and Spidi). If you are in between sizes, we recommend to you to err on the smaller side.

Pant Sizing Guidelines
Olympia pants fit true to size. If you intend on using them as over pants, please go one size up.

Inseam Lengths
Olympia pants are cut with generous inseams to accommodate various riding positions. Olympia EZ hem bottoms (can be hemmed up to six inches) and adjustable knee armor help riders achieve a custom fit
