Tour Master Sonora Air Jacket 4.7 5 76 76
Tourmaster Sonora Air jacket Sorry they discontinued this jacket. I am very pleased and have ridden in cold weather below 40 degrees. I took their advice and ordered a small, I wear large in regular street clothes so was concerned, but fit is perfect. Again sorry it is discontinued is so versatile. November 2, 2015
great jacket Being 6'7" 350# it's hard to find anything to fit me. I have been looking for a motorcyle jacket for years prices up and down the range. This one fits well and is comfortable. I've used all the different configurations summer rain and cool all works well. only concerns are stitching may me thin and come undone and the elbow pads seem to float low for me and I have 38" sleeve so anyone with short or average length arms may have problem. Over all for price to function I would highly recommend for the big and tall person. October 13, 2015
Excellent budget priced jacket I purchased a BMW R1200GS two years ago and bought this jacket at the same time. I am about to purchase a BMW Rallye jacket, but wanted to read the reviews here again. They are pretty much on point. The jacket is exceptionally versatile. I have worn it in temps ranging from 25F to 103F. With the liners in and appropriate layers underneath, I was very comfortable at 25. Nothing is going to be comfortable at 103; however, at least this jacket didn't add to the discomfort. Without liners, the airflow is fabulous. The protection seems very good (first jacket - what do I know, really?) Certainly, though, it is much better than simply a leather jacket or one without armor. And I have taken a couple of low-speed falls off-road and have never had even the smallest dent in my elbows or shoulders. Okay, now, the hi-visibility version. This is really pretty simple. On the bike, you appreciate how visible you are. Off the bike, you are just a little embarrassed. The yellow is YELLOW. Still, if you ride in congested areas, on the highway, etc., this certainly makes you very visible. Me, I think I'm going to buy the Rallye in blue and add extra driving lights to the front and rear of my bike. :) The only failure on the jacket was the zipper. It has become fussy in the initial fastening and the zipper pull has broken in half. It still works; however, I am a little surprised that the pull broke. Still, I have absolutely no regrets buying this jacket - it is a great bargain. October 9, 2015
Comfortable In High Heat Wore the jacket on a 700 mile two day trip in 80-98 degree heat. The air ventilation is great. Look forward to it cooling down and being able to add the rain and/or quilted layers. Zippers and Velcro are top shelf. Without the layers installed the jacket is a little big, but easily adjustable. I'd buy it again. September 23, 2015
Great purchase. Awesome mesh jacket!! Bought this jacket to replace another I had previously purchased. The other jacket was less expensive, but was also on the flimsy side and had not nearly amount of features this one has. I am tall and was concerned about fit in the sleeve length and length from shoulder to waist. This jacket more than adequately covers both fit areas. The adjustable snaps on the sleeves, as well as the hook and loop straps around the waist area and wrists, allow for lots of customized fitment, based on your build. I have been able to adjust the waist straps to allow me to tuck a 10"x5"x3" box into my jacket (to have shipped at the post office, in case you were wondering), but also cinched back down to be more fitted. The mesh allows for a LOT of airflow through the jacket (without the liners), so much so that if I am wearing a t-shirt or tank top underneath, it's almost not noticeable that I have a jacket on. It does keep sun off of the skin, so if you are riding with t-shirt or tank top to get sun, this doesn't help. :) The multiple liners means being prepared for all sorts of weather. So far, I have only used the rain/windbreaker insert. I was dry everywhere the jacket covered and it did a great job at holding body heat in. I am coming up on my first winter with the jacket, so hoping it will perform as well as the jacket and rain liner have. The amount of pockets on this things is awesome and in very handy places. I use the two pockets on each side of the zipper most often, to house cell phone and wallet. The pockets are very large and could easily hold the largest of cell phones. The inside pockets are also spacious, but because the external ones hold so much, I aven't really had a need to use them much. I got the hi-viz yellow and the jacket is very bright. It stands out well against other traffic or scenery. I have a Shoei helmet that is of similar color and have noticed, on more than one occasion, where a car/truck/van/etc start to pull out in front of me but then brake when the color catches their eyes. Ditto for cars changing lanes on me. The reflective strips also do a great job at giving me visibility when it's dark outside. No complaints about this jacket at all. Very well constructed, armor in the impact areas is only noticeable if I am off of the bike and sitting with my arms on my knees/legs. The video review on RevZilla was spot on, and the other reviews on the jacket were very helpful in solidifying my purchase. Hope this does the same for someone else! You won't regret it! September 21, 2015
Great jacket, but beware of tall sizes I love this jacket. It's stylish, has great air flow, and can be adjusted around the waist and arms for a custom fit. Great air flow while moving, but, as expected, moving slowly or standing still gets a little warm, especially in Georgia summers. I'm 6'5" and 200lbs, which would be considered tall by most standards. I got the medium tall jacket because it was the only size available, and it's just a little too long, but it's not a huge problem. If I just scrunch up the sleeves a little bit, they'll stay in that position while riding. But overall great jacket. August 12, 2015
Excellent multilayer jacket If your looking for a well designed multiple layered jacket this is it. It has plenty of pockets, extremely adjustable for the perfect fit regardless of your body shape and size. August 3, 2015
Great Jacket I did a lot of research and read a lot of reviews before landing on the Sonora Air. I was not disappointed, it fits well, breaths well, and is an overall great product. It fits slightly large when the liners are out, but not so much that its uncomfortable. With the liners or a long sleeve shirt underneath, its perfect. August 3, 2015

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Bruce K: Many good reviews stating it is warm enough for those 35 degree days, yet cool in hotter 75 degree days. Plus the armor protection. This is my first dedicated jacket for this purpose. My only concern is Revzilla recommended a small for me, and I hope it is not too snug. I have a 40 inch chest and waist, wear large in most other gear, with room to roam though. Oct 13, 2015
J K: I currently have the same jacket. Same as the jeans. Riped up my left shoulder when I went down. The jacket is nice when the weather is not too cool. Shoulder armor helped out when I went down. Oct 10, 2015
Derek S: Tourmaster for decades has made quality gear. Great gear at a Great price. Thanks, Revzilla Aug 24, 2015
Douglas A: Versatility Jul 22, 2015
PETER S: I had this same jacket for a few years. One of the best IMHO. It's not difficult to put in the liners if you wish to layer up. Although I could never get use to the jacket getting wet in the rail with the liner installed. I would still put on a rain jacket over it. This jacket saved my bacon in a crash last year. The armor kept me from breaking more than my radius and ulna. Went for another jacket and did not like it. Jul 20, 2015
James L: brand reputation...features Jun 13, 2015
Darren S: Hi-viz a must, touring cut, value, and offers future add-on purchase for riding pants. May 21, 2015
J R: Looking for a deep south summer 3/4 mesh jacket sized for my tree trunk body. Material seems to be more rugged than the FirstGear Mesh Adventure jacket. Like the Hi Vis Yellow. If the jacket sizes correct - I'll likely get Tour Master Venture Air Pants for summer touring. We'll see. Apr 14, 2015
RICHARD W: I got it in bright green. I have had it for 5 months and wear it daily. LOVE THIs JACKET!!!! Apr 4, 2015
Eric E: good sale price Mar 18, 2015
John B: Very good reviews and ideal for touring in summer but also in cooler weather as I live in uk Feb 5, 2015
Mr. B: I have an 8 year old Tourmaster Intake that has served me well but is beginning to have a few problems.
It didn't make sense to buy a new liner at $50.00 and to have the velcro on the cuffs replaced for some other amount.
The Sonora is an upgrade to the Intake and is 3/4 length for the cooler months.
I'm hoping it will wear as well as my Intake has.
Nov 5, 2014
jodi g: Reviews were positive, and friends recommended Tour Master products. Price point at Revzilla was the best we found. Sep 24, 2014
Jim S: I just moved to LA and man it's hot here. My Olympia 4-season jacket was just too hot, so I chose this for the ventilation. Sep 14, 2014
Michael W: Based on all the great reviews, especially air flow in the hot summer months since I live in Mississippi. Aug 15, 2014
David G: I tried on a TourMaster Intake and it immediately felt better than any other I tried. I decided to go with the Sonora because I am riding year round in Seattle so I wanted a little heaver jacket yet retain the configuration options of the Intake. Aug 13, 2014
Ken B: Needed a mesh jacket for hot weather and also needed a tall size. I like the fact that this coat is 3/4 length, thought I would give it a try Jun 28, 2014
Mark A: I liked the reviews and comments I saw on this jacket from your site. I also looked at the reviews from other sites, but I decided to purchase from RevZilla because of your guarantees you put out there up front. I went with Hi-Viz Yellow color basically to be seen while driving on the road. Mark. Jun 25, 2014
Dan P: It's a serious jacket that can looks to be able to take a tumble and protect as well as could be expected for non-race gear. Tourmaster has great storage and handy pocket layout. Just overall great looking jacket. May 29, 2014
Philip G: Needed a good summer jacket but I think this will be more of a 3 season jacket for me. I really like this jacket. It covers all my needs. Apr 29, 2014
Michael D: Wanted a visible jacket for hot, high traffic days. Single purpose jacket that worked well enough. Not happy with overall construction as liner sleeve tabs/loops broke soon after purchase. Don't use the liners much and really not an inconvenience. Just an irritation. Apr 27, 2014
Curtis M: Best reviews for hot weather riding while giving good protection. I like the three liners and pouch in back for liner if you pull it out on the ride. Apr 25, 2014
stephen w: I selected this because it is high-visibility, available in a tall size, and I have the Tourmaster Transition 3 jacket and I have been please with it. This will be replacing my First Gear mesh jacket which has far fewer features and less protection than this jacket delivers. Apr 16, 2014
silvia r: My husband is in need of a warmer weather jacket that fits his long arms. Mar 18, 2014
rOBERT s: Wanted a 3 season jacket with good Summer air flow and rain protection. The rear pouch is a great place to store the quilted liner for cooler weather. Like the 3/4 style and CE rated protection. Feb 19, 2014
Colton S: This jacket is a great fit and compliment to the Tour Master Venture Air Pants. The collar fits great where the weather stays out yet doesn't bunch up under the helmet. It breaths so nicely. The 'hand warmer' pockets actually helped out a lot more then I thought. I have to say, I just wish the button's used to tighten the arms where sewn in and not apart of a rubber piece. The rest of the jacket is better quality then I was expecting for the price. I am really amazed by this jacket overall. Feb 7, 2014
Steve S: Watched several product videos for jackets and really liked everything
with the tour master along with the charcoal color and tall sizing.
Nov 10, 2013
Chris W: Great product, fantastic quality and venting, really well made for long distance hot summer rides, excellent quality as always from tour master. Inner liner is great for 45 degrees - 70 degrees Sep 14, 2013
stephanie m: LOVE this jacket! Nice air flow and tons of pockets. Hope to never try out the protection of the jacket, but feel pretty sure I won't have to worry about it if I ever do. Sep 11, 2013

Curtis R asked: Does The Soñora Jacket have pockets for elbow, shoulder and back armor pads? I checked out a jacket that had velcro bags that held the armor pads in place. Not good in a ground slide. Jun 25, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (1) No (0)
stephanie m: To directly answer your question, they are in velcro pockets stitched to the jacket itself. The design is so you can remove the CE pads (hard armor, not that soft crap) to wash the jacket. I speak from experience that they are VERY difficult to remove from these pockets and coming out in a slide would really surprise me. My son had an accident in his old Cortech (made by Tourmaster and same design) jacket and it performed exactly as it was supposed too and there was NO damage to the inside of the jacket. All impact areas were scuffed and/or torn, but he did not have one scratch! I fully trust their gear!

On the jacket itself, I love it! Flows a TON of air when liners are removed and has pockets everywhere! I ride year round and with the liners in I honestly think this jacket is as warm or warmer than my Tourmaster leather jacket! You won't regret your decision should you decide to purchase this jacket.

I'm happy to email pictures if you like.

Thomas V: Curtis - Yes the jacket has pockets for the armor protection and they do stay in place on a slide. Unfortunately, I experienced this first-hand when I laid my bike down last fall. The protection in the jacket did exactly what is was designed to do and I walked away with no scraps or bruises - only a few holes in the jacket :( I highly recommend this jacket to you for both comfort and protection.

Tom R: Yes, the armor is removable and pulling apart Velcro is how they're removed. I own five motorcycle jackets of various brands and types and they all have armor that's removable in a similar fashion. I don't think it will move too much in a get off if your jacket fits you right. Jun 25, 2014

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
David H: Before going to this jacket I was wearing a Joe Rocket Phoenix. While this jacket is little bulkier, I don't notice and it does not affect my riding. Air flow on the Sonora is very good. On super warm days, the only spots of sweat on my t-shirt are under the waist cinch straps. Mar 20, 2015

Dudley P: Works great in hot weather with both liners out. I wish the liners went in and out a little quicker but with both thermal and rain liners in, it's pretty warm, Mar 21, 2015

John M: Not at all, this is my main summer jacket, mesh breathes very well. It doesn't get much hotter than Austin, TX either! Mar 20, 2015
Reply to John Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
James E: Not at all! The mesh shell by itself feels so light and comfortable that you can forget it's on. I like the extra protection vs. the waist length jackets, but I always use the longer styled jackets. I rode through eastern Utah, down through Arizona, and back through Nevada last summer. Was a GREAT jacket in some pretty extreme heat. My complaint on it is the front, neck protection. Against cold weather and bugs, it doesn't help you a whole lot. Other that that, it's a very versatile piece of equipment (with the 2 liners; 1 thermal, 1 waterproof/wind). Hope that helps! Mar 22, 2015

Terry T: It's not as heavy as you think. I took it to Africa for two weeks and had no problems. It is lighter than most textile jackets and keeps you comfortable in hot dry weather. The 3/4 length is nice for me being 6'10". The water proof liner is also not as cumbersome l. Worked well. Mar 19, 2015
Reply to Terry Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Daniel A: It is heavy, but you can take out the inside layers, for rain and for cold weather, so in that way is not so heavy.

Beside that, the only problem that i found is that the velcro in the sleeves don't keep all the time closed.

James S. W: My wife and I are tour riders. We have the black and grey Sonora Air Jacket. We purchased black Tour Master Venture Air Pants. They matched well and came with the same 3 liners as our jackets. We have been happy with the outfits and with the customer service reps at Revzilla. They helped/advised us and put together our whole riding gear from boots to gloves, on sizing and recommendations regarding the type of riding we were doing. Hope this helps. Nov 4, 2015

Michael G: I've been extremely happy with my Tour Master Sonora Air Jacket. I ride a Triumph Sprint GT. So far I have 5,000 miles on my bike and jacket. The jacket has been a great fit and has adapted well to the various temps and weather conditions I have subjected it to (100F - 45F and a few nasty rain storms). I'm a bigger guy 5'10", 270lbs. I chose a 2XLG. The fit was nearly perfect. The rain/wind liner and the insulated liner work well. It takes a few extra minutes to install them, no big deal though. The Senora is a 3/4 length jacket. It's not a waist jacket. The waist jacket model is the "Intake Air Series-3". My riding buddy has that jacket. I prefer the extra length the Senora offers. Other than that, the jackets are very similar. The extra length of the Senora helps keep my backside better covered from the wind and rain. The 3M reflective piping really works well and is an extra safety bonus. Pockets are numerous and very roomy. I hope this helps. This was my first Tour Master product and it was a great choice.
Are there better jackets out there? You bet! But getting to that last 20 percent of nirvana, will cost you hundreds of dollars more.
I hope this helps....... Kind regards........ Mike Griffith "Griff"

Dudley P: I am 6'4" 255 lbs I bought the 2xl tall and it fits perfect. A little big when worn without the thermal and waterproof liners but no flopping around. I have only worn it with no liners and all I can say is I wish I would have bought a mesh jacket years ago. Just rode in 100 degree heat and I was fine. Sep 17, 2013

I am very happy with this jacket.
It provides safety, visibility, and has kept me cool n90 degree weather, dry in the rain, and warm on rides in the high 30's to 40's.
It has held up very well on the more thatn 50 outings and over 12,000 miles I have logged since May 2012.
Got the yellow for visibility. That works.
Adjustable waist, sleeves, etc., all work well.
Plenty of pockets, with good access.
Size: I have the XL-46. I am 6' tall, Husky 220 pounds. It fits well without any linings, and with the waterproof liner. With the insulated liner it is sufficiently warm.

A shopper asked: Can this jacket accept an Alpinestars Bionic Air Back protector? The back protector the jacket comes with doesn't inspire much confidence. Nov 15, 2012

John M: The 4-5 inches answer from Revzilla threw me off, and I purchased a separate back protector to wear under the jacket. Then the jacket arrived and I removed the back protector. It actually measures 18.75" H x 12.25" W (at bottom/widest). The top part tapers from 6.25" down to 2" at the tip. Go to Tour Master's website, look under the "Technology" tab for the back protector, and you will see a picture to help make sense of the measurements (try not to laugh to hard when you see the picture and what the insert looks like!). So you can purchase a different back protector that either fits this cavity or can be cut to fit (cutting voids warranty I hear), or buy a wearable back protector like I did. I may buy an insert to cut and fit, if so, I'll update this answer at that time. Aug 19, 2013

RevZilla: No, this jacket cannot accept the Alpinestars Bionic Air Back Protector Insert. The pocket in the Tour Master Sonora Air Jacket is too narrow, only about 4-5 inches across. You probably wouldn't be able to use any other insert besides what comes with the jacket. A good alternative is the Alpinestars Bionic Air Back Protector, which can be worn under the jacket.

Jerome J: In the RevZilla video review Anthony says you can replace the back protector with a Forcefield (see around 3:20 in the video). But the RevZilla answer here says no. Which is correct? Sep 7, 2014

A shopper asked: Is the subject waterproof liner made from a breathable material? I have had some bad (sweaty) experiences here in the SE with the non-breathable PVC/Nylon rain suits/liners. Also, I am assuming that the waterproof liner and the insulating liner can be installed separately, or both at the same time? Jun 11, 2012

RevZilla: Removable Two-Stage Aqua-Therm Liner allows Tour Master's mesh jackets to be true 3-season warm and dry garments. Each stage can be used independently for warm and wet, cold and wet, or cold conditions Jun 11, 2012

Waegn: This is not an answer to the original question ("Is the subject waterproof liner made from a breathable material?"), since I am the one who asked it. Instead, it is a follow-up to my original question about the breathability of the waterproof liner.

The above answer from the RevZilla Staff Expert is a direct quote from the Tour Master web site (http://www.tourmaster.com/xcart/technology.php?tech_id=10) which is "nice", but does nothing to answer my question about whether the waterproof liner is made from a breathable material. E.g., what does "true 3-season warm and dry garments" mean in terms of breathability?

If someone could just give me a YES or NO answer, it would be appreciated. Additional details on the type of material used for the water proof liner are optional (e.g., Gore-Tex, eVent, Polyurethane, A laminate or a coating).
