Tru-Spec 24-7 3-in 1 WeatherShield Motorcycle Jacket and !

Steven K. Ledin,

The above picture shows our lovely Kate wearing the excellent Tru-Spec 24-7 3-in-1 WeatherShield jacket. It's my new go-to motorcycle jacket. I love everything about it. It's not marketed as a bike jacket, but it is the best I have ever owned for that application.

It's still chilly out during my morning drives to work, and proper clothing makes it comfortable. My area of least comfort, normally, is my lower chin and neck, even when wearing turtlenecks, like I normally do for spring riding.  I sometimes wear my secret weapon, a Maxit Hothead. This excellent headcover is windproof and works perfectly to prevent windchill, but makes my tight helmet even tighter. The Tru-Spec 24-7 3-in-1 WeatherShield jacket has an excellent stand up zip-through collar that covers my neck completely, and is high enough to just fit under my helmet to block the wind. The zipper ends are fleece covered for comfort, a crucial attribute.

The zippers are YKK and work superbly, and are all sealed to be waterproof. It also has a detachable hood with room to store it.

The jacket has a removable fleece liner that can be worn as a stand alone jacket. It has elastic cords to sinch the waist snug, and it has side zippers to get to your gun, just like the waterproof and windproof outer shell.

The sleeves are hook and loop and are also elasticized, so it's easy to put my favorite Youngtown gloves on and pull the elastic over them for windproofing.

Again, the Tru-Spec 24-7 3-in-1 jacket is not marketed as a motorcycle jacket, but they're missing out on a whole demographic with disposable income. Buy one, you'll love it.
