Mesh-Tex is an all new jacket and pants set from First Gear that can be worn together or separately; and is perfect for summer rides. Both pieces are made with 250 denir polyester mesh that is going to provide complete ventilation and maximum airflow. Let’s talk about the jacket first. As previously stated, the shell of the FirstGear Mesh-Tex jacket is made from a polyester mesh; the interior is made of a lightweight, perforated, nylon material. If you happen to ride in cooler conditions, there is a fully sleeved, removable, water resistant wind liner included with the jacket. The liner and the interior of the jacket have identically placed pockets, so you can carry items in the same place whether you wear the jacket with or without the liner. There are also two exterior, hand warmer pockets. For protection, there is CE armor in the shoulders and elbows, as well as two layers of mesh fabric to reinforce impact areas. There is also an EVA dense foam back pad. For a more tailored fit, The Mesh Tex jacket comes with adjustable side waist spring snaps. The back of the jacket has reflective piping for nighttime visibility.
The FirstGear Mesh-Tex Pants have been sized to be worn as a stand-alone pant for warm weather rides. Like the Mesh-Tex Jacket, the pants have also been incorporated with CE approved armor in the knees. The knee armor is height adjustable. There are also hip protectors. For storage, there are two front pockets with zipper closures, as well as two back pockets with hook and loop closures and a right side, thigh pocket. The heavy duty elastic waist give the pants a comfortable fit, and the lower knee side zippers make it easy to pull the pants on or off; especially if you’re wearing riding boots. The Mesh-Tex pants also have a couple extra convenience features such as the built in conjunction zipper for jacket connection, the side reflective panels for nighttime visibility, and the heat resistant material on the inner calf.
The Mesh-Tex Jacket and Pants both come with a two year warranty. Each piece has some great features that are not only going to keep you cool during hot rides, but also keep you safe and comfortable. The Mesh Tex jacket and pants also come in women’s sizes.
