Taters Jacket Review.........

I was looking for a jacket and also looking for a low costing alternative to heavy leather for the hot summer weather that we get up here. I looked at many different jackets and tried on all the BIG name brands. I even tried on some off brands that looked well built, and I settled on a jacket made by x-element. I know I never heard of it either.

I was surprized when I started to really look at the jacket. It has ce armor in the back, forearms to elbow, and shoulders to help in case of a slide. It also has exterior padding on the back and shoulders to help cushin in the case of a fall. It has a full zip out liner for colder weather that is a full sleve liner and not just the vest part. It is vented, it has two front chest vents and 2 rear exit vents on the back. I also has vents on the sleves that allows for excellent airflow through the jacket.

The jacket is waterproof and feels very sturdy. It has one inside pocket and two full zipper exterior pockets. It has a 8" zipper in the back wo that it can attach to almost all riding pants. It has reflective piping that shows up great at night. considering my bike is black with a bit of yellow and the jacket I got is mostly black. It has fully adjustable wrist velcro that is very strong and fully adjustable waistband that can be tightened so that the jacket does not "ride up".

My two favorite things about this product are as follows

1.The lower back area of the jacket. I hate how most jackets ride up when you are in a more agressive tuck. This jacket solved that issue for me by having a padded lower back section that hangs down lower then the sides and front.

2. The price! at $79.99 plus shipping it was a great value.
I ordered it through www.leatherup.com and have not found it advertized anywhere else.

I give it 4 thumbs up

The Men's Black and Grey Cordura Jacket is made of 100% Cordura fabric. Not only is it waterproof but it includes breathable lining and a microfleece lined rolled collar. Full sleeve zip-put liner, reflective PU badges, velcro cuffs closure, adjustable waist and elbows, shoulders and back armor included. Buy from LeatherUp and save BIG!

Thanks for the info. Reminds me of my Cortech. Also sounds like a killer price. I paid that for a summer mesh with no liner.
