Adventurer Jacket

Let see if we can get a response from one of the Inmates to see if it works for them.. I work here so you know what I think... We are working on doing an Adventure Pant again, but it will be a while since this is a slow process on the design and manufacturing end..

We are looking at doing some new magazine ads and need a great picture of someone doing something cool in an BMG Adventure jacket... Anyone up for the Challenge... How about $1000 prize plus a full suit to anyone that gives us a picture good enough to use in a national ad campaign.. Has to be High resolution... What do you guys think..

In my experience the only really really effective venting on a jacket while riding a bike (or certainly the best) is on the arms. In this regards the Adventure jacket has great venting. This side of a full mesh jacket, this is the best vented jacket I have owned - it has other venting besides on the arms BTW.

I got mine muddy for the first time at the 3-State DS ride over the weekend. It held up very well and now has a nice patena to it.

It also rained and I thought the waterproof outer was going to be a PIA but I actually like it - there is no chance of it soaking into the jacket and making it all wet and heavy.

Got a few new pics yesterday and hope to get some more in the next few days if the weather will cooperate here in the Black Hills. High for tomorrow is only supposed to be 44 F. Nothing wrong with that but rain is also forecast.

I'll add a few to the website after I get back home so I can pick and choose the best looking ones.

I did 100+ miles in my new Adventure over the weekend. All I can say is superb ... even though the temps this weekend were pretty high ... the venting system works brilliantly.

Now I just need a set of Adventure pants in blue to match the jacket

That bike is way too clean for having been ridden on a gravel road.

That's because it got cleaned when I rode through the stream.



Actually, that spot was just off the highway in Spearfish Canyon so we hadn't ridden any dirt yet. In this pic here, if you hadn't already figured it out, I was just screwing around trying to make it look like I rode through the stream. That road just led to a cabin in the woods (private property).

Believe me though, it's dirty now! We got caught in a monsoon a couple of days later and I got to test out the waterproofness of the Mercury jacket and it passed the test with flying colors. There was water at least 1/2" deep running down the highway, worst rain I've ever ridden in by far.

We did ride some Forest Service roads later in the week though but nothing too technical. Got lots of great pics....





More here if anyone's interested... http://mrmaico.smugmug.com/gallery/5058640_aJuWt#P-1-12

+1

I did the 3-State DS ride a couple weeks ago and I had a similar experience. This jacket (as does my Challenger) just feels solid and so well put together.

Adventure pants to match please

I may even break the habit of a lifetime and buy a new pair instead of used

When will these Zodiacs be available? I was just looking at these on the BMG site.

Sizing

Hey Dantegod,

I''m looking at getting a Montana jacket. I'm almost 6'2" but a slim build at around 180lbs. I have a 38" chest, just measured. Would a size 42 fit me well?

Thanks,
