Zodiac Jacket Review by Steve in Georgia, USA

The Zodiac is now my favorite riding jacket for moderate to warm temperatures. Especially like the full comfortable cut and extra vents. Great product. (Posted on 1/14/2010)
Great jacket worth having Review by ANelson

I bought this jacket about 2 years ago from BMG after reading the review at Webbikeworld. It is everything I could want in hot to moderate weather for this type of jacket. Fit is good , very comfortable and light weight. When weather gets a tad bit colder I just wear more underneath it. Only negative is the metal snaps and other pieces on the jacket...they have gotten rusty...but that's primarily due to the fact I live at the beach.

I can definitely recommend this jacket to anyone wanting a good light jacket that is multi-practical! (Posted on 1/12/2010)
Great for the Majove Desert Review by Mike
I received my jacket a couple of days ago and I have to say it is all I had hoped for. I have never had a better warm weather jacket with as much protection. I live in the Mojave desert and as you can imagine it gets hot here although the humidity is low. The mesh jackets let to much air in and you end up roasting like sitting in a convection oven. This Zodiac vent system lets you control the amount of intake air and works much better than a mesh. One final thing, I ride a S2R monster and even at elevated speed the jacket does not "Flap". Nicely done..

A Must for Africa Review by Bill in South Africa

When I saw the write up on web bike world I had to try the Zodiac Jacket. Anything that light and protective would be great in South Africa mesh lets in to much heat and you get dehydrated and saftey is always a concern. The dollar being a little week at the moment I figured I would spring for the extra postage from the USA. I have not taken this thing off in months. It has kept me comfortable in all kinds of heat and humidity and I even crash tested it with no apparent issues to me or the garment. It also seems to be quite waterproof.

Thanks for a great product BMG I will be ordering more of your line in the future.

P.S. Thanks for supporting Riders.org it is a great cause... (Posted on 6/8/2009)
New favorite in the closet Review by Roy Ethridge

I received my new Zodiac jacket a few days before leaving for a trip to the mountains of North Ga and TN. For late July I had to prepare for lots of sun, 100+ degrees and even heavy afternoon thunderstorms. I wanted to pack lightly but the Zodiac was untested by me so I added an old mesh jacket and liner. I must admit that on the first afternoon nothing felt exactly cool and when my battery would start up the beemer we both had to wait for a while before restarting.
Over the next few days I was able to switch between the mesh and the Zodiac. When the temp was under 90 I was comfortable with either jacket however the Zodiac will be my only choice for my next ride since it allowed for plenty of air flow with all the vents open but could be instantly adjusted when the rains came or the temp dropped.
The added reason I will select the Zodiac is that it was as comfortable off the bike while playing tourist at the winery or dining in the cafe.
Great product, service and value.

Great Jacket for the Heat and Humidity!! Review by Mosquito
I typically ride with the jacket unzipped and it keeps me cool in the 100% humidity and 90 degree + temperatures of eastern Tennessee, while offering great protection!!

Best Humidity Jacket I have seen.. Review by jerry in south florida
Wow at 100 plus with humidity I feel very comfortable as long as I am moving. The Black fabric seems to block out the sun and stop any heating up of my skin as well as all sunburn. I have been down in it and it worked great. At $139 with option for Level 2 Knox Back you get great protection for the money. It even kept me dry in a down pour, although it does not claim to be 100% waterproof.. Great buy for a hot weather rider that wants to be protected from the sun and pavement.. (Posted on 7/5/2008)
Zodiac Jacket Review by Eric

Living in North Florida, our summers are very hot and highly humid (70%+), temps reaching over 100. I purchased my Zodiac four years ago and primarily use it as my daily around town jacket. So far, it has held up very well, including weekend rides within 100 miles. It does provide a lot of airflow when moving. Zippers are great with the leather pull tabs. Enough side pocket room. Adjustable waist tabs keep things tight when they need to be or expand after a good meal :-). Elbow pads and shoulder pads can be removed to wash jacket. Cons--Reflective stripes are so-so, back protector is way too inadequate. When not moving, you'll sweat a couple of pounds off (lighter color would be nice). While stock armor is there, I replaced it with a different brand that is CE certified level 2. If you ride daily in town, you'll have to wash it at least once a month. Don't use regular detergent and also to keep the water resistant, use ScotchGuard or equivalent a couple of times a month, other wise you will get really wet first rain. Overall 7 out of 10 for comfort, airflow, price, fit, quality.

Company Response: Thanks for the review Eric.. The Zodiac jacket has an option for a CE Level 2 Knox Back Piece. The piece that is in the jacket is just a foam pad to make sure the pocket is sewn large enough to fit a proper back armor piece.. Not intended to be used as armor.. More reflective piping has just been added as well... (Posted on 6/19/2008)

This jacket feels light but has armour where needed. Plenty of zips for airflow. (Posted on 4/18/2008)
