Tourmaster Metro Jacket

Postby detdrbuzzard » Sat Oct 06, 2012 10:19 pm



its too cold out to wear my joe rocket ballistic or phoenix jackets and its too warm to wear my tourmaster rincon or saber ( first gen ) jackets. my el-cheapo leather jacket is more for show than anything. so i found the tourmaster metro jacket on amazon for $76 with free shipping. i've only had it three days now and it has worked great even today with a temp of 41f and winds blowing at 10mph, gusting to 22mph. there is a vent on each sleeve and on each side of the chest of the jacket as well as an exit vent across the back. the sleevs are cut on the long side as is the torso of the jacket but compaired to my other tourmaster jackets the sizing is small, i wear a 2xl and this jacket fits more like an xl. the collar unsnaps so it can be zipped up to form a wind block for your neck. so do i like it??? ... yes and it fills the gap between summer and winter jackets

I also have the Tourmaster Epic armor mesh jacket and am also impressed with it. It's similar to your Metro and has the vents in the sleeves, back and two vertical vents in the front chest for good air flow. Too bad my fairing blocks most of the wind, though. I like the full arm removable liner that gives good warmth in the cold. It also has removable armor plates for the elbows, shoulders and full back. It has a back support belt built in but I haven't used it yet. There is also a hood located inside the collar behind a zipper. I have ridden once in 38 degree temps and was plenty warm. I also got dumped on with very heavy rain riding home from work (40 mile trip) and was bone dry when I got home. I hung it up in the basement overnight and it was dry the next day. I also like the adjustable straps down the arms and waist for a firm fit. It's not a cheap jacket but is WELL worth the money. Next week I will be buying the matching pants with removable liner and zippered legs to go with the jacket so I can continue riding as the weather gets colder.
Here is a link with more pics of the jacket.
