I picked one up at Sedalia.
I wore a comfort shell with cooling vest down to the rally from Toronto. Worked well stayed cool for 2-3hrs. The CS was nice when we hit rain but I didn't close the vents I welcomed the rain.
Rode back to Toronto with cooling vest and new venting Jacket.
I love the venting jacket, soft and flexible I can fold and will tuck in almost anywhere.
The armor feels nice not to stiff, but not Rukka soft. The new black material does seem to reflect the heat and it vents GREAT.
Did lose some cooling time with the vest, good for about 1-2 hrs. As expected.
Over all the jacket is typical BMW quality, the fit is great and very comfortable and it vents very well. I can see the main zipper maybe an issue in time as with most BMW jackets.
Rode BMW R1150RT.
Cooling Vest old style soak in water.
