My go-to in bad weather Review by Rich Steixner
Price
Quality
Value
I have been riding with this jacket since last year. It is very warm. Very windproof. The neckwarmer is clutch. without the insulating liner, it is good up to around 60 or 65, IMO. With the liner, I ride down to freezing. It is infinitely superior to anything else I have ever tried for cold and/or damp weather. The only thing I take exception to is the claim that it ventilates. It has some vent zippers, but they don't penetrate the waterproof liner. So it is not really venting. But head and shoulders above anything I have found elsewhere. This is actual riding gear, not fashion gear marketed to riders. (Posted on 7/22/2010)

My Discovery is the Belstaff Discovery, same as the BMG. It's worn daily for my commutes and it serves well on my travels...thus far no complaints, no leaks, just a great three season jacket. well one minor complaint>>>>that damn belt bunches up in back, nothing major, just looks crappy.

Absolutely waterproof .
Best value jacket on the market .
My only niggle is the elasticated belt ,but a pair of scissors soon cured that - I much prefer a seperate belt .
I think you'd have a damn hard job finding a better jacket . (Posted on 9/11/2009)

I wore the discovery jacket in the Iron Butt Rally in downpours, desert heat, cold nights and never had a complaint. It is an awesome jacket. Mine now has about a hundred thousand miles on it still looks great and does the job> (Posted on 2/25/2009)
"THE" riding jacket for me Review by crazykz
Price

I've had the Discovery for over 200000 miles in 6 years and it has never leaked on me. I wash it and re-waterproof it once a year using NixWax products. This will be on the top of my list when looking for a new jacket. The collar alone is worth it's weight in gold when it comes to cold/wet weather riding as it allows for multiple layers that get bunched up at the neck.

My only criticism is venting. The vents under the arms and small ones in the back help but anything over 80 is pretty sticky. I put up with it because I absolutely love the jacket and don't want to carry more than one jacket. (Posted on 12/7/2008)
100 mph Crash wearing Discovery Review by One Happy Brit

Hi Guys

Just received the jacket. Great job! As someone who used to have the Discovery jacket when it was sold under the Belstaff brand, I'm really pleased to see the same quality standards have been maintained.

The Discovery is a true 3 season jacket with excellent wind and water repellent qualities. In a typically mild British winter, when temperatures hover around freezing, the thermal lining is almost too warm when riding around town but the collar-mounted throat protector works really well on cross-country rides where windchill is a real concern.

In summer the vents work very well and are well situated. The way that the front of the jacket has a combination of zip fastening and very sturdy popper buttons means that on hot days the jacket can be worn partially but securely fastened, with the zip partially fastened and the buttons completely fastened, allowing air to pass through the jacket but with the jacket unlikely to burst open in the event of a crash.

I had a 100 mph crash wearing a Discovery jacket. I slid up the road, mostly on my back. The only damage to the jacket was a couple of 1 inch rips on the sleeves. I broke 6 ribs on impact, all at the front of my chest, but the armour protected both my arms and back from any injury. I had no abrasion injuries at all.

I'm really pleased to see that you have brought such an excellent range of textile jackets back onto the market. Frankly, when I compare other products to the BMG Discovery jacket, I find them wanting.

Cheers fellas!

One Happy Brit.

Only two criticisms really Review by Austin

After riding in pouring rain for any length of time when you stop water that has built up in the sleeves literally pours out the cuffs for about 1minute eventually slowing to drips and stopping after about 5mins. It manages to fill my gloves every time abd leaves very soggy cuffs for an inch or so up the sleeve. 2nd point is that several of the poppers have snapped - the 2 spares provided were used within 1 month of getting the jacket.

Otherwise a superb jacket warm enough for 3 (UK) seasons without a liner, and plenty warm enoughh for most of a UK winter with the liner and so far 100% waterproof. I also keep discovering new features even after 1 year of owning the jacket. Excellent package really - get one. (Posted on 9/18/2008)

After noticing that this is the jacket Claudio wears in " The Long Way Round" and reading the reviews I new this had to be one great peice of equipment.. I have worn this jacket in an ice storm and in rain that never let up for hours.. The Verdict this is the Jacket all other should be measured against. (Posted on 9/3/2008)
