Tour Master Women's Transition II Jacket
She's very happy
I got this jacket for my wife. I've had one for a couple of years now and am happy with the features and styling for the price. So when my wife decided she wanted a 3/4 jacket, this was her first choice. Luckily we got it while they are still available... And for a closeout price! This jacket is a good four season jacket. Nice and warm with the liner or when the weather really gets cold, a heated liner . It's a bit warm when temps hit 85 +. Above 90 you'll want a cooling vest. I rode through Baker, CA in 116F heat and was pretty comfortable with a cooling vest and the shoulder vents open. (as long as I kept moving!) The new Transition 3s are out now, so if you want one of these, you best act fast!

Really useful when it comes to ride
The product really fits needs when you ride in different types of climate, for instance, in Colombia, in a 3 hours ride you have rain, fog and heat all in one and the jacket needs to be made for all three conditions to maintain you comfortable at all times, this is what this jacket has.

Love the pockets, air vents, and solid construction.
After taking the motorcycle safety course, I decided that if I was going to ride I was going to be protected. With this in mind, I was looking for something that had high visibility and body armor. This jacket has both and is extremely well constructed with lots of pockets and multiple ways to adjust it for a good fit. Plus, the bright yellow color matches my new helmet...what more could a girl want?
So far, I have ridden this this jacket both in cool (high 50s) and warm (high 70s). In cooler weather, the liner is great. I did get a little chilled, but it was because I didn't have the top of the jacket closed all of the way. At about 70 degrees, the liner is too warm, so it will most likely stay out all summer. There are lots of vents, so I am hoping that this jacket will be cool enough to wear all summer long.
One thing to note--this is a heavy jacket! I'd guess maybe 10lbs(?) which could be a problem for anyone who has back or neck problems. With that said, I do feel like it provides me with the protection I was looking for.

Visibility on the Road
I bought this jacket in High Visibility Yellow. I am a life long road bicylcist and know that to be seen is my first line of defense and safety on the road. This same logic translates to motorcycling. No black leather for me after seeing motorcyclists choosing the option to be highly visible as the bicycling community. I have long advocated safety in visibility in my own job of selling muscle-powered sports gear to people on the road and on the water. It makes good sense.
