BMG Discovery II Motorcycle Jacket
- Product Review (submitted on October 31, 2010):
I've been riding since I was about 13. Now I am a year round rider no matter the weather. Over the years I have tried a multitude of jackets. If you came and checked out my closet you would think I own a motorcycle shop. I have over a dozen jackets by BMW, Rev'IT!, Rukka, Olympia, Hein Gericke and a few Belstaff jackets.
When the mercury drops I reach for this. NONE of the other jacket I have keep me as comfortable in extreme weather.
I ride an annual ride called the Crotona midnight run, this is held in the 3rd-4th week of February during what is generally the coldest night of the year. One year the temperature hovered around 6 degrees during the halfway point, which means that temps around the lake were at least 10-15 degrees colder.
I was toasty warm, I didn't even have my heated gear with me (I forgot it) but thankfully I didn't need it. Having your body well insulated keeps your fingers and toes warm as well. Around the 11th or 12th hour just before arriving home the very tips of my toes did feel a little cold, but thankfully the sun had already risen and the temperatures quickly rose.
Again, if you are living in a cold climate and want THE warmest jacket you can get, look no further.
