Tour Master Transition 2 Jacket
So I bought a Tour Master Transition 2 jacket at the local Cycle Gear for $170. It fit pretty well and was loaded with features that I was looking for; 4 chest vents, 2 shoulder vents, 1 back vent, removable liner, lots of pockets, decent reflective stripes, CE armor in the elbows and shoulders, 600d shell, and it was waterproof. I wore it in cool dry weather and was quite comfortable, but the waist strap just couldn't get tight enough to keep the cool air out. Then I took it for a 5 day ride..........that's when I found out that it was not waterproof. I rode about an hour and a half in a good NW downpour and got wet. Not soaked, but my chest and sides were fairly damp. For the remainder of my travels, the jacket performed very well. The days were mostly cool, 50 to 75 degrees and I stayed warm enough even though I wished the waist straps would get tighter...... I'm 5'11" and 210lbs. I bought this jacket in XL and probably could have gotten away with a L, but I need the room in the shoulders. This was a tan jacket that certainly looked good, but had to be returned.
