|This is one of the nicest casual style, but still functional riding jackets you’ll find.
It looks like a high-end soft shell casual jacket, but also works on the bike flawlessly. And it has a killer 2-in-1 liner jacket option for really cold days, and without the liner handles cool and mild days perfectly. The way you use the liner is to put the inner jacket on like you would a light casual jacket/sweatshirt. Wear it like just another layer of your casual clothing. Then when you are ready to ride, put the armored jacket/outshell on over it. You can secure the inner jacket to the outer at the collarbone attachment points if you want. And when you are on the bike, the main jacket has low profile, but CE certified elbow and shoulder armor, a back pad that can be upgraded if desired, zippered vents in the armpits, and a removable hood.
Like most Taichi textile jackets, the Soft Shell runs at least one size tighter than marked. If you normally wear WM, order a WL.
