STREETGUARD Jacket Test

Wow. I have Aerostich Darien suits, Roadcrafter, Olympia and Vanson leather jackets.

Picked up the STREETGUARD today at Bob's -- great selection all the way up to my size at US 54. Others are usually XXL.

- Very nice fit
- Quite comfortable on the LT
- Today it was 38 air temp and I did a short 100 at about 65 mph
- I put my Gerbing jacket underneath the STREETGUARD jacket with its liner
- I had a silk under my LD comfort mock turtle

The STREETGUARD has the nicest collar arrangement I've seen - 2 collars that get around my big fat neck -- no choking feeling and no separation

The Gerbing at about 40% "BAKES" in there -- I was plenty warm.
Apparently this new version Goretex shell really does stop the wind

I shut off the Gerbing for a while -- still nice.

More testing to come -- Very happy with this initial run. BTSOOM
