Jacket saved my life!
My Firstgear Mesh Tex jacket is an older one, before they had internal liners, and styled a bit different than the new ones. After at least 10 years of using this jacket, I went down on I-40 at about 75 MPH due to debris scattered by a truck in front of me. Initially I managed to stay on my Royal Star Venture by climbing to the high side as it slid on the side with 2 flat tires. Then the front tire started bouncing and the back started coming around, and I realized it was about to catch both tires and flip, which would have thrown me like a catapult. So I bailed off to get into a slide and let my safety gear work. I hit hard and flipped, and then slid head first, feet and head up, sliding primarily on my right chest and shoulder with arms stabilizing me. When I stopped, I was still in the right lane but my motorcycle was in the median after flipping, going airborne, and tangling with the divider cables and posts - completely destroyed. Once stopped, I rolled to my right, to the grass, and started checking for injuries. I had no road rash, except for a spot about the size of a quarter on my right knee. But the heat from friction as this jacket took the slide caused some minor burns on my skin, with the outline of the armor and the stitching clearly visible for about a week. I did have many very colorful bruises, a crack in my shoulder blade, a cracked pelvis, and 6 broken ribs. But I am certain that without this jacket on I would have died from tissue and blood loss. Now, as I recover, I am shopping for new jacket and motorcycle. I shall ride again, thanks to Firstgear jacket, Alpinestars gloves, and HJC helmet. Buy good safety gear and wear it every time you ride!

Excellent Phoenix Arizona Summer Commuter Jacket
Ventilation & Protection
I purchased the Firstgear Tex Mesh Jacket primarily because a) it was a mesh jacket, b) it was the most hi-viz with lots of reflective strips, and c) it had a longer torso than the Joe Rocket Phoenix 3.0 that it replaced. This jacket really grabs people's attention. It is bright. It is significantly brighter than my Arai hi-viz helmet. This jacket really “pops.” You will be seen.

It is slightly less ventilated than my Joe Rocket Phoenix 3.0 because a) the armor is larger and more protective, b) the pockets have a water protection barrier that was not present on the Joe Rocket Phoenix, and c) the weave of the Firstgear mesh is slightly tighter and almost certainly more protective. It still passes an amazing amount of air.

Why did I not by a Joe Rocket Phoenix 5.0? Too little hiz-vis, too little reflectivity, and too much black. Also, my Joe Rocket 3.0 was always too short in the torso (I have a long body).

I replaced the foam back-pad with an armored back-pad. Yes, the back-pad is hot in Phoenix. All the armor is hot in Phoenix. Everything is hot in Phoenix.

Fit
My Joe Rocket Phoenix 3.0 was an Extra Large, the Firstgear Tex Mesh is a Large. I am a little porky at present, mostly in the middle, at 5”10' and 215 lbs.

The Firstgear has velcro tabs at the sides of the waist for adjustment (although this isn't advertised). The Firstgerar also has a covering flap at the base of the zipper that snaps.

I put my right arm in first, then my left. I pull the armor onto the left elbow because I have short arms. The armor isn't going anywhere—it stays in position over both elbows once in place.

Suitability
My daily commute is approximately 1 hour in Phoenix on the highway. Part of the trip is fairly fast, part of the trip can be stop and go. The typical temperature in the mornings is in the 80s to 90s, and the temperature on the way home is typically in the high 100s to low 110s. During monsoon season, July and August, we have some humidity to go with the heat.

I took the liner out of the jacket as soon as I opened the box and put it in the closet to stay. It is well attached with both zippers and snaps. The liner has an iPod pocket. There is another one in the jacket for use when the liner is out. I can slip my phone (3” wide, 6” tall, 5/8” thick with the protective cover) into it but the top of the pocket, but the phone sticks out more than an inch—it is a tight fit. The jacket itself has a generous left breast pocket that easily swallows the phone. There are two generous hand-warmer pockets. All of these pockets have rain protection in front of them, a feature not found on my Joe Rocket Phoenix 3.0. All have zippers.

All the zippers are high quality and feel very solid. The jacket shows high quality workmanship. It is made in Vietnam.

Saved my skin
Well I went down on the freeway this past Friday and I have to say this jacket saved my skin!! I was ejected from my bike after avoiding a accident in front of me and got rear ended while braking.. Landed on my back and slid down the freeway under a car and dragged by my hand which got in the wheel well of the car some how!! The jacket took the full impact and including the back protector it comes with (not CE) and held up the whole time!! It did burn a hole in on the center of the back, but other then the jacket getting destroyed I was in good shape and thankfully walked away with no injury other then two fractured ribs!!! I recommend this jack to everyone because it went through a beating and held up!! Great job First Gear on a excellent product and thank you!!!

Great value
This jacket is great for the price. The video is right about it being a more boxy cut. I'm tall (6'6") and athletically built, and the LG tall fits me fine for length, even in the arms, and there's some extra material around the waist. The armor that comes in the jacket is pretty bulky and the shoulders in particular make it look like you're doing a hulk impression. I replaced the standard armor in the shoulders and elbows with D30 armor, and added a D30 back protector, and the jacket fits much better now - no big shoulderpad look, the D30 has better coverage, and the whole thing is lighter. My only complaint is that the arms are kind of baggy and there's no way to cinch them down to keep elbow armor more in place. Mine arrived with the removable interior liner stitching coming out along one armpit, but I wasn't planning on using the liner anyway.

This is a great jacket.
I live on the edge of the Mojave Desert in southern California, and it gets HOT here. I bought this jacket so that I could ride in the heat and still have some protection. And boy, does it work!

Lots of airflow thru the jacket keeps me cool, but it still has quite substantial armor on the elbows, shoulders and back. The mesh fabric feels extremely tough; I have no doubt it would protect me in a fall/slide. I'm 6' tall, 180 lbs, 33" waist and I got this jacket in a size Medium. Fits great with only a polo shirt on.

And on those cool fall mornings, the zip-in liner keeps me surprisingly warm. Good looking jacket, good quality, great price... I have no complaints.

More High Viz than others
This replaces an older mesh jacket. Riding a touring bike behind a faring blocks visibility of the torso area, and many designs had black sleeves with High Vis torsos. (Hello Designers?) This one is so bright you need sunglasses. Cooling is good. Sleeves fit a little loose, but seems like would stay in place during initial impact if needed. Armor does not ventilate (no holes), which kind of defeats the purpose of a mesh jacket. Yet its still cool and comfortable for riding in hot weather.

This is a great warm weather jacket.
I love this jacket! I use the liner in the morning and remove it on my way home from work. I find that the jacket is comfortable between 55 - 95 degrees. I got the Neon Yellow/Black which is more neon green/black then it is yellow; it is very bright. I am 195 lbs, 6'-2", and 40" chest I bought the Large Tall and it fits me perfectly.

Excellent Jacket
This is my second Mesh Tex jacket. The first one is 7 years old and still performs like new. I wanted a new hi vis jacket and tried the Olympia Air Glide 3. I returned it because the collar seemed really tight and the jacket felt bulky. Revzilla's return policy is awesome. I replaced it with the hi vis Mesh Tex jacket and am pleased with my decision. The jacket fits great, is priced right and is very visible. I'm 5'11" 190 lbs and the large is perfect. The jacket seems to be of excellent quality and should last for many seasons. With the removable liner installed I can ride comfortably to about 45 -45 degrees. With the liner out it's actually cooler than wearing just a tee shirt. This is a great jacket and I would definitely buy it again and I would not hesitate to purchase from Revzilla.
