Tour Master Textile Motorcycle Jacket

When searching for the ultimate jacket, one element tops the list for many motorcyclists – versatility. Long ago, Tour Master realized this and designed the aptly named Transition Series jacket.

And for 2012, Tour Master revamped this jacket once again, releasing the Transition Series 3 Jacket.

The ¾ length waterproof and breathable jacket features a 600 Denier Carbolex and 1680 Denier Ballistic Polyester shell that incorporates reflective Phoslite material panels for increased nighttime visibility. And with versatility built into the overall design, the Transition 3 offers optimal comfort in warm weather or cold weather.

When the temps are hot, the transition features waterproof-zippered vents throughout, including the shoulder, chest, sleeve and a rear exit vent. The Transition 3 also features a Pipeline Ventilation System for flow-through ventilation. And when the temps are cooler, the jacket features a Z.O.Q. (Zip-Out Quilted) liner with 100g poly fill insulation.

Other features include a collar anchor that prevents flapping when collar is open, a durable two-way main zipper closure with dual wind flap that seals out the elements, Microfiber-lined collar and cuffs, adjustable sleeve takeup straps at the forearm and bicep, and an adjustable waist belt.

The Tour Master Transition 3 Jacket also features removable, CE-approved armor at the elbow and shoulder with an articulated triple-density back protector, vertical zippered chest map pockets, pockets with a flap closure, internal media pocket, dual-zippered fanny pack, a sleeve key pocket, and a Jacket/pant zipper.
