Firstgear Mesh Tex Jacket Review

The Firstgear Mesh Tex Jacket has been a staple of our lineup for hot weather riding within the sport touring, touring, and ADV touring segments since its inception a couple years back. The cut is nicely contoured for a snug and sporty fit, and it provides a great deal of mesh for airflow, with solid abrasion resistance and impact protection. As the Firstgear lineup evolves, we continue to be impressed by the features and functionality they pack into reasonably priced products. The Mesh Tex is no different, and every rider who has given feedback about it has been glowing with positivity and satisfaction.

Check out our Firstgear Mesh Tex Jacket Review:



The entire shell of the Mesh Tex is built with a 250D polyester mesh for a superior level of ventilation. At the inside, the perforated nylon lining is breathable and lightweight, allowing for the air to flow through to and cool the body. There is double-layered fabric in the shoulders of elbows that provides abrasion resistance to complement the impact protection provided by the CE rated armor in the same areas. There is double stitching in most areas of this jacket to add stability and strength to the seams and EVA foam back pad can be upgraded to a CE protector for additional back armor. You're definitely covered in a get-off situation.

Taking a look at some of the nuances, there is a removable full-sleeved water-resistant windproof liner that really helps stretch this down into the temperature. We have rider reports of getting under the 50ยบ F mark without any issue at all. There is adjustability at the waist and wrist to help with cinching this jacket down appropriately for your shape. Handwarmer pockets, an interior pocket, strategically-placed reflective piping and a microfiber-style collar round out the features of this jacket. One of the most popular versions of the Firstgear Mesh Tex Jacket is the neon yellow colorway, which allows safety-conscious riders to ensure that they'll be seen by four-wheeled motorists.
