Re: First Gear Diablo Leather-Tex Jacket

I just picked up a First gear Leather-Tex jacket from my local dealer. *I was just going in to 'look', but we all know how that goes. *I have never had a textile jacket, but the price of $119.00 peaked my interest. *I at first thought, ya right orig. $235... ummmm hmmmm. *I ran home checked out Parts411:

Part # *Item in Basket * * * * * * * * * * * * ** Our Price * * *
50-4118-TR *DIABLO JACKET RED 2XL * * * * $225.71

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Subtotal: $225.71

So I rode back and picked it up. *Still a few left in red, and the gray.

The jacket is very nice, but while riding home, I noticed a bit of buffeting. *I felt like the Sta-Puff marshmallow man. *The jacket fits well, an XL, for me at 6'4' 225 lb. *My question is should I loosen up the waist to allow the air to flow through, or should I get a set of Race type gloves? *I am sure that the gulf stream is coming from the sleeves, as my gloves do not go over them.
