Tour Master Draft Air 2 Jacket
Good summer jacket
I bought this as a replacement for my old Tourmaster Flex jacket (that had solid exterior that zipped off for Summer mesh). My 3rd Tourmaster jacket so obviously I like the brand and enjoy its features. I read from other reviewers that it fits a size larger than most jackets, so I ordered a Med rather than my normal Large. Fits perfect (I wear a 42 jacket, and a L in most shirts, but sometimes need XL for t-shirts). Good pockets, comfort, inner rain liner, etc and the quality you expect from Tourmaster.

This is a nice jacket. Short, not too baggy in the arms or torso. It has lots of features and pockets.
I haven't used the liner yet, so no review on how water tight it is in the rain, but it will come along with me on a 1200 mile trek in a couple of weeks and I'm sure I'll be able to report back on it. Good value. Right out of the box, the jacket is soft and comfortable - like I've been wearing it for years. Air flows nicely. I would recommend a light color - black is bad in the sun (for any piece of equipment). Bought the SM - would normally buy a large, but Revzilla pointed me toward the right size!

Overall a great product!
A couple of weeks after I bought the jacket, I had a low-side
crash. The protection was superb! Not even a bruise on me!
Ventilation was good, airflow was excellent.

This product is just as advertised
I really like the jacket. Air flow is good and the liner is perfect for cool morning commutes. Haven't had a chance to test its waterproof capabilities but for that I'm not complaining. Velco adjustments are nice, they allow for minor tweets, as needed.
Sleeves are a little long but not a complaint, I actually like longer sleeves, rather than the other way around. Only thing missing in my opinion, is a exterior breast pocket. Plenty of internal pockets but only two side pockets on the exterior. That's the only thing I'd change, if I could.

Great for the price
I'm new to riding and have looked at jackets ad nauseam. Short on cash and living in the high desert, I decided to go with the Tourmaster Draft Air 2 jacket. It was a great compromise of cost and safety.
My top pluses:
Adjustable straps on arms and waist
Removable CE Armor in the elbows & shoulders
My biggest complaints:
Only a pad in the back
A few threads are coming loose
Mesh snags on velcro
So far in the Spring the inner liner has helped keep me warm and, with removal, cool as needed to my environment. I find comfort in the safety of CE ratings and would recommend this jacket to anyone with similar needs.

Great looking jacket, good protection, and super airflow.
I ordered this jacket for riding in our hot and humid Virginia summers. Temperatures have not exceeded 79f since I received this jacket, and typically have been in the low/mid 50's. With the liner in, wearing a short sleeve shirt, this jacket is cold in the 50's and will require an additional thermal layer for comfort. At 79f it is comfortable with the liner in, especially in motion, and quite cool with the liner out. Airflow is amazing, and I think this jacket will be excellent kit this summer. The Tour Master Draft Air 2 is very well made, and its provided protection seems quite good for a mesh jacket. I'm 6'1" tall, 210lb, with a 46" chest, and the Large/36 fit perfect. Bought mine in red, and the jacket looks fantastic.

This is my favourite jacket for riding in the Australian climate, it breathes very well on hot days and the inner lining is perfect for keeping me comfortable in anything short of a storm. I couldn't be happier with this purchase.

Another good Tourmaster product
This is the second one of these jackets I own. I bought a second just because I hate dealing with removing and installing the lining. I primarily ride a ST 1100 so I have plenty of storage to carry my second airflow so as the temperature here in Texas changes 30 to 40 degrees from morning to afternoon I can quickly change jackets. I followed the sizing chart and did the measurements, the fit was dead on, though the selves tend to be a bit long. However that's a lot easier to deal with than short sleeves.
