Harley-Davidson Women’s 3-in-1 Mesh Jacket | Review

Harley 3-in-1 Mesh Motorcycle Jacket Test

Out for a cruise on the back of my fiance’s Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Classic on a hot summer day in the canyons of the Santa Monica Mountains, the advantages of the new Women’s 3-In-1 Mesh jacket from Harley-Davidson MotorClothes become apparent.

I appreciated the fact that this 100-percent polyester mesh jacket is fully ventilated, allowing for a very comfortable day in the blistering sun.

On the high end of the temperature scale, accessory hydration packs can be added for evaporative cooling. Even on the hottest days, I didn’t feel the need for that, but every rider has her own sensitivity to heat.

Having ridden on many long rides where the weather can change from one extreme to the next due to the rapid changes in California topography that create distinctive micro-climates, it is nice to have the option of adding the hoodie in case the mercury suddenly drops. Not only is it warm, but it is also windproof.

The jacket itself has waist tabs and cuffs that can be adjusted to shape and taste. This definitely gives the jacket a good feel on the body, as well as looking attractive when combined with the graceful curves of the graphics.

Comfort is important as a passenger, but so is safety. The 3-in-1 Mesh jacket doesn’t have the protection of leather, of course, however I do feel better that there are pockets in the shoulders and elbows for accessory body armor of your choosing.

This way you can have the airflow needed in the summer, along with the impact protection you want in the worst-case scenario. Also, the 3M Scotchlite reflective piping, which is not conspicuous during the day, makes us visible to sometimes-inattentive drivers on those night rides.

As a standalone jacket, the black-with-orange-stitching hoodie is very stylish. I wore mine to a concert on the beach, and the extended cuffs with thumb holes kept my hands warm. Though riders may not like the feel of the thumb holes and long sleeves, it is a great feature for passengers.

The photos tell the styling story — you can’t go wrong with the iconic Har- ley orange-and-black color motif. The embroidered appliqué graphics and femi- nine typeface for Harley-Davidson make for a stylish riding jacket that is also practical and comfortable.
