My Motoport Air Mesh Kevlar jacket does exactly this for me.
Yeah, I understand that, and is exactly what I'm looking for. Question is, who makes it? Has anyone found such a jacket?
Of all the jackets I currently have, my Firstgear Kenya is by far my favorite. It looks good, is waterproof, yet has great venting, is tough as nails, and fits perfectly... except for that length thing! If it was just an inch or two longer, it would be perfect. So I thought: "why not get one in a 'tall' version"? Well guess what, they make an XLT, and an LT, but no MT!! Sucks, 'cause that would probably be the ultimate fit for me.
So anyone know of a similar type jacket (3 season, waterproof) that is available in a medium/tall?
