KEITH DACE: excellent
I have terrible arthritis in my back and neck,and simply cannot wear a heavy jacket.After watching Lyndon Poskitt's channel on the tube covering his Dakar adventures I decided to follow his advice and go for a multi layer system.I bought an Alpinestars armoured hoodie to go with my Keis heated liner,and the Scott Ergo as my top waterproof/windproof layer.This seems to be the lightest most comfortable setup I can have,and with the additional impact and abrasive protection of a kevlar reinforced back protector for the hoodie I am sorted.The Scott Ergo is very lightweight,packs down very small,in fact if you had an adventure jacket with the lower back pocket,it would easily fit in there, and best of all,when I'm on my unfaired bike it doesn't flap around and threaten to shred itself to pieces.I am 6'2" tall with a long reach and it is easily long enough in the arm,and about 38 chest, and again it fits snug over both my under layers.I went with a small.
It is totally windproof,and works perfectly as a top layer, and still has style.Best of all it doesn't make me look massive on the bike like some do it all adventure jackets or other bulky waterproofs.If it was to get damaged or lost I would buy another one in a heart beat.Best motorcycle system of clothing I've ever owned,certainly the most comfortable and unrestrictive.
Mark Hamilton: SUPERB
As always, exceptional service and speedy delivery from Motolegends.
This jacket is excellent quality as I've no doubt you've read in other reviews.
I'm 5'11 and about 13 stone, ordered the M and fits nicely over my Furygan leather jacket which is a Large, so perhaps a Small may have been a better / snugger fit?
So, if you try before you buy that's not a bad idea, but free returns here so not really an issue.
