Talking Cortech Ladies' LRX2 Textile Jacket (mini review)

Just have to rave here for a moment, and say that THIS IS THE BEST JACKET EVER!!!!!

I'm a self-proclaimed gear whore... I've got a total of 4 jackets, including 3 mesh and 1 leather, but I've been in search of the perfect textile for what seems like forever!!

I finally decided on the Cortech LRX2, because of the long sleeved quilted liner, it's waterproof, and the huge array of vents (not to mention a LOT of reflective piping )

It arrived last night, and I can't tell you how much I love this jacket!!! It's by far the most comfortable jacket I've ever tried on. Very lightweight and flexible, lots of adjustment (wrists, 2 on the arms, elestic gores at the hips, and two velcro straps at the hips) and fits just great.

So I wore it for the ride in this morning. I didn't use the liner, as it was around 60 degrees when I left the house. With a short sleeved t-shirt under it, it was perfectly comfy; I think at about 55 degrees, I might need a long sleeved shirt, and maybe around 45-50 degrees, I'd put the liner back in.

Since it fits so well, there was no wind-buffeting or billowing (with the vents closed, obviously). And again, it's so light, I joked when I got to work that I felt almost squidly, because I didn't even feel like I was wearing a riding jacket at all.

It's got CE armour in the arms and shoulders, but just a triple density foam spine protector (I'm going to order the CE protector for it). It also has (both halves of) the 8" zipper at the back for attaching to pants.

New Enough has it for $125, and right now they're offering free shipping on many Cortech items. It comes in Ladies XS - XL, and then Plus S - L (also some tall sizes!!! )

I'll take pics later, but I'm just so excited about this jacket, I had to share!

Cortech/Tourmaster is one of the better buys. Good quality for the low price.

This is the first Cortech item I've ever owned. I'm definitely impressed with it so far.
