- Product Review (submitted on December 7, 2009):
- I really like this jacket. Definitely not cheap, but the quality is great and it feels like it will last for many years. It's quite a feeling to ride through a downpour in a leather jacket and stay bone dry plus not worry at all about damaging the leather. The jacket has a good temperature range, though I would use a summer or perforated jacket for real hot weather. The Transit is good up to about 90, especially if you keep moving. You could also use it in pretty cold weather, especially with a heated liner (it's a bit too snug for multiple layers underneath). The armor is well placed and seems substantial. My only complaint is the sleeves/cuffs. The sleeves are a bit too long so the cuffs, which are not soft, chafe and push against my hands/wrists when riding. And only my thinnest cloves fit underneath, all others have go over, so you need gaunlet-style gloves. I REALLY wish the sleeves were a couple of inches shorter, or that customization was an option, because I really like everything else about the jacket.
