When it comes to riding gear I'm a man of simple needs. The stuff has to be well made, comfortable and practical, that's it, end of story. If there's anything to add it's only be that I prefer conservative cuts and colors as well.Though it's cut in a decidedly retro fashion, that doesn't mean the Olympia Bonneville Jacket uses old school technology, au contraire. The jacket is constructed of DuPont Cordura with ballistic mesh panels, which makes it strong, light and breathable. For comfort in chilly or wet weather it's also equipped with a wind and waterproof/breathable liner, wearable on its own as a casual jacket. 3M Scotchlite trim at the sides and back insures added visibility in low light situations. Additional jacket features include an adjustable waist, cool mesh airflow lining, comfort neoprene framed collar, 8" connecting zipper for pants, removable CE approved motion flex armor at elbows, shoulders and back and five storage pockets.
