Primary Material Textile
This garment is fitted with impact protectors for the elbows and shoulders, with a pocket provided for an aftermarket back protector.
Mesh panels are located in the inner arms, chest and central back areas to allow airflow cooling in hot weather.
Comfort measurements were conducted with and without the removable water resistant liner. The comfort rating reduced from three stars to half a star when the water resistant liner was present.
