Reviews & Questions
I started out with ordering a size medium, it was way too loose in the chest and shoulder area, so I returned that and got a small - much better fit overall. I have removed the armor, but the small still fits about the same with it in.
Style: I really like the simplicity/cleanness of this jacket, not much for logos. I removed the arm first gear logo badges, it is awesome that they are just stitched on and not also glued. The drop on the back is awesome, long enough to keep covered but short enough that I am not sitting on it.
Durability: For the cost point it is seems to be very well constructed. Stitching is solid, zipper quality is good - have not broken nor had an issue yet with one, the fabric is heavy enough I don't foresee any issues with wear occurring anytime soon, and the fabric cleans up easily.
Comfort: More than comfortable enough to walk around in if you stop somewhere. While riding, it does have a tendency to lift up in the shoulders for me which sometimes is enough to lift the pit seam into the arm pit. This could be due to the style of bike I ride allowing air to flow easily/directly into the wrist area, and only happens at freeway speeds. Due to the waist being closer to a snug fit, I have to unzip the bottom a slight amount to avoid pinching.
Design changes that I would like to see: Either a double zipper on the current back vent or changing to two vertical vents instead of the one horizontal; making the waist just a little larger; and maybe making the inner zipper cover a little less floppy so it does not occasionally catch in the outer zipper.
Great overall jacket, well worth the price. Sizing seems to require getting a size smaller than what is suggested by the measurements.
Anthony was not joking when he said this jacket has an American Cut. I am far from a European build and am in the process of getting healthier (losing weight). I ordered the XL and the jacket fits me comfortably welll. Currently there is no room for me to add layers underneath but with another 10lbs lost (currently 250lbs.) this jacket will fit me perfectly.
I commuted home (35+ miles one way) this evening after work with temperatures in the high 40's. Without additional layering (just a long sleeve tshirt on underneath) I did feel a chill BUT I wasn't uncomfortably cold. To add, it felt as though I was in an airconditioned room. With an additional layer, I wouldn't have noticed the cold.
The quality of the jacket seems it will withstand time and wear; only time will allow me to comment on the durability. But this jacket seems well made and just as good a quality as any regular winter jacket that I've invested in. After inspecting the jacket I see no flaws or loose threads. The zippers (external and internal) seem solid and are easy to zip open\closed (no snagging).
I gave I high rating for features for a couple of different reasons. There are good sized hand pockets that zip up well and I think are waterproof (gotta watch the video again). There is a pocket on the interior intended for a cell phone. My Samsung G3 in an Otterbox cover fits in this pocket but the flap won't velcro shut. Had my G3 no protector or a one layered one it would fit perfectly. There is also a pocket that can be accessed near the chest under the first zipper. A good place for my house keys to go into.
As for my Revzilla experience. As with the Alpine Stars boots I purchased from them the video was very helpful in my decision to purchase. I shopped at other sites for better pricing and none could beat Revzilla. In addition, I took advantage of a free shipping promotion. I received my jacket today when I was expecting it tomorrow afternoon. Thanks again Revzilla!
If you're looking for a good quality, protective, and relatively inexpensive jacket I highly recommend Firstgear's Rush Tex. And of course, don't bother purchasing anywhere else...Revzilla is a top notch outfit!
I have been in a few real downpours in this jacket and I have had no issue at all. I commute in this jacket with a light sweater underneath and I have never been cold - I can certainly tell it is cold outside but I never feel it through this jacket.
What you get with this jacket is less features and other non-essential niceties but you do get a top rate jacket with all the attention to detail and quality of First Gears higher priced products (as it seemed to me when shopping at a local dealer).
I've only used this jacket in temps up to the low 60's so I can't really comment on the venting but I assume it is adequate. I have been very comfortable and dry in this jacket and I would recommend it without a doubt.
Two intake vents on the front near the shoulders and one big exhaust vent on the back,.
Reflective piping on the back and front, and the "gears" first gear logo on each sleeve is also reflective while not vulgar or annoying.
CE rated protectors on shoulders and elbows, foam protector on the back, but you can buy a DO3 back protector that fits.
for $150 this is a great value, I use this for commuting to work everyday haven't tested the waterproofing as its not currently raining but it seams like it will hold up fine.
As far as the fit goes, I am a tall guy (6' 3"), but I am not very big. I ordered size medium, but I was concerned the sleeves might be a bit too short. They were not. The fit is just perfect for me!
I've been in temperatures down to ~4 deg. C this past winter (June-September).
I hope this gives you some useful information for reference.
