Default Victory textile touring jacket

The jacket is on sale. regular price 360 dollars, sale price 144 dollars. I ordered one. I have never owned a textile riding jacket. Always leather, but it was a great price for all weather rain proof jacket. Can any give their opinion about this jacket.

This is Just the list of Victory's. I have also rode and owned Honda's, Kawasaki's, Suzuki's, Harley's. Some old European bike. Can't remember the name. It was a 3 speed and I started riding on a 50cc bike that Sears sold. Some time around 1967. I have had my motorcycle license since 1969.

Not that specific jacket but I ditched leather for textile years ago.

More waterproof, dries out quicker, cooler in summer. Much more practical than leather imo.

Think you guys. After checking out a few textiles of some Beamer friends. I'm sure you gave me sound information.

I've had my Tour Master textile jacket for close to 30 years its done many, many miles. Honestly, its still rock solid and works great. Even though I recently purchased a leather, I'm keeping my textile for those times when I need real touring jacket.

Check Cycle Gear for textile jackets, they have some great deals every now and then. I love my 35 year old leather jacket but recently bought a textile. I am surprised out how well it works, you stay dry and warm, with ton of vents you can keep cool in the hot spells.

The jacket came in the mail yesterday. I thought it would be lighter than my leather jackets. It's heavier. It has elbow, forearm and shoulder armor. I can get back armor for it. I don't like the way the armor feels when I wearing it. the liner comes out and is a nice jacket with Victory logo on the back and zip up pockets. It also has a zip in weather guard that goes over your face and around your neck. Lots of vents with water proof zippers. I was out riding when it came to the house. I am going for a ride this morning to see how it does out on the road. It's only in the 50's, pretty windy. But it should give me an idea of how warm it will be and how well it keeps the wind out.

You'll get used to the armor and will greatly appreciate it should you ever need it.

My wife and I have been riding in all types of weather wearing textile riding gear. After trying several types I buy Dainese gear it is a little more expensive but fits great, comfortable on and off the bike and versatile. You can buy it at cycle gear...better yet find a Dainese store for a wider selection and experienced riders to help.
