Item Description

Firstgear Torrent Mesh Jacket

Nothing represents the versatility of textile jackets better than mesh. The fabric’s ability to provide loads of cooling airflow, while in the midst of a heat wave, without compromising safety is a quality no other jacket can boast. With mesh, there are no reasons for you to ride without protection no matter how hot the temperature.

The Torrent is an all-conditions riding jacket. Constructed with a polyester mesh outer shell, the Torrent features a full-sleeved, removable, waterproof and breathable liner to keep you dry and on your way when the weather suddenly changes. Plus, two front cargo dry pockets protect your valuables from getting wet.

Features:
  • Polyester mesh outer shell
  • Removable, waterproof and breathable fully-sleeved liner with mobile/PDA and patch pocket (so you don’t lose storage space with the liner in place)
  • CE-armor protects shoulders and elbows, plus an EVA foam backpad
  • 2 front cargo dry pockets and 2 front cargo pockets; all with easy-grip pulls, so you don’t have to remove your gloves to get into them
  • Clip your gloves onto a convenient D-ring
  • Microfiber-lined collar for comfort
  • Interior pockets including: placket pocket with zipper, mobile/PDA and patch pocket
  • Adjustable waist belt, bottom and sleeve cuff straps
  • Reflective piping front and back
  • Tough, abrasion-resistant, riveted shoulder and elbow exterior patches
  • Exterior rear storage pouch
  • 1-year limited manufacturer’s warranty

Firstgear Meash Jacket

This is really a great value for the price. Plenty of pockets for stuff and a well made removable liner. I'm not sure how well this would do in cold climates but down around 55F it performed well. I'm an Arizona rider so you'll excuse 55F being cold. In warm weather this jacket is great. The only thing I can say on the negative side is the collar edge rubbed my jaw line and irritated my neck area. I'm hoping it softens after a few rides and I no longer have that problem. Otherwise, a great jacket.

Firstgear - Torrent Mesh Jacket

Nice jacket. Lots of pockets, including three waterproof pockets. These pockets did not leak, even in 60 mph down pour. Cool at speed and liner works excellent in rain and on cool mornings. Too bad there are no pants to go with it.

Firstgear- Torrent Mesh Jacket

Size, fit and finish are great and I really like the high visibility of the Yellow material. The pockets provide more than adequate storage and the two front waterproof pockets do their job in the rain. Works well over an evaporative cooling vest in the hot humid southern weather.

Great Jacket

Great qualify for the cost. Nice fit and finish as well, although if you want something substantial underneath (e.g. heavy sweater) get a size larger. Plenty of pockets and other "stuff." Appears to be strong and durable (I don't really want to test it though).

Torrent mesh jacket

I am very impressed with the jacket. It fit well, and the sleeves are long enough for my arms. The number of pockets, the way the liner stores in the back like a back pad, even to the pockets in the liner, this is a first class product. The hanger it came on is even impressive. I am totally satisfied, and would buy Firstgear again as my first choice.

DONT BE FOOLED BY APPEARANCES

I bought this jacket because of the description and reviews of how great it works in hot weather. I have a Firstgear Kilamanjaro Jacket that I wear in the winter, and although it came with a liner for additional warmth, I never used it even when riding in mid 30 degree temperatures; the jacket was enough on its own. I tried to wear it when it got warmer, but it was just too hot! Enter the Torrent. When I ordered the Torrent, my wife said,"It is just like your other jacket!" Well it does kind of look the same, and it kind of feels the same in weight and when you put it on, but when you are going down the road on a hot day, you can really feel the ventilation working. It has pads on the shoulders and elbows and comes with a rain proof liner. Great Jacket! Highly recommend!

Great Jacket!

The Torrent Mesh Jacket is very well designed, has loads of sensible storage space and is great to wear in the warm weather. The jacket breaths beautifully and is comfortable even in 90-degree heat. I haven't had a chance to test it in wet weather yet, but the zip-in liner and quality of the storm flap, zipper and snaps should assure a warm and dry ride in bad weather. Definitely a worthwhile purchase.

GREAT jacket! Highly recommend!

I received this jacket as a "Welcome to Motorcycling" gift a year ago from my brother when I got my first bike. Fortunately, he knew what to look for in a jacket because it's a GREAT jacket. The pockets are big enough to hold all of your personal belongings (phone, keys, wallet, etc.) and a few extras. Heck, I even carry a few spare parts in mine just in case. It's very comfortable and breathes very well. I have the yellow and it's highly visible, adding to my safety. It's a 3/4 length and kind of covers up your butt when standing, but once seated on your motorcycle it comes up just enough so you're not sitting on the jacket but it still provides back protection. I HIGHLY recommend this jacket. This is a great price on it too, as it's a $200 jacket retail.

First Gear

They did it right. The best features are the weather-proof pockets and the ease it takes to get to them. Riding in Florida relates to many short showers that you could just ride through and dry off quickly. Knowing this, you can just put the things that you don't want to get wet in them and they do stay dry. The jacket is comfortable for an armored jacket, even during 15-hour rides.

Firstgear Fantastic

The fit and features are wonderful. I am very visible and comfortable, and the cost was minimal. If I need another jacket anytime, I will certainly check out Motorcycle Superstore and Firstgear first.

Torrent Mesh Jacket

This was my first purchase from the Superstore and has led to several more due to my complete satisfaction from the experience. Ordering was easy, shipping was fast, and the jacket exceeded my expectations. I bought a medium size for my 5'11 185 lb frame and the fit is snug but comfortable over a shirt and even with a heated jacket liner I purchased later. I remove the liner since the coolest weather I've ridden in yet is 54 degrees and I had the vest on then. Without the liner and the vest there is plenty of airflow and it's still not too warm to wear the jacket in 85 degree weather, if anything, it even feels cooler with it ON than riding without it due to the venting, and I like that. With the liner in and the heated vest it might even replace my heavier cold weather jacket. Plenty of pockets, bright color for visibility and armor to boot, what more could you ask for?

This is a great three season jacket. I have been in the rain a few times with it and stay dry. I added a heated liner and it is now a great year round jacket. It's big easy access pockets are nice and the waterproof pockets in front seem to be very dry. I haven't had nice enough weather to take the liner out but feel it will be nice in the summer as well.

I'm pleased....

I'm pleased with my purchase. I'm 5' 8" tall and 200 pounds. The large fits me fine. It's snug across my gut but that's just fine with me. I had hoped that the liner would be a bit thicker. It's windbreaker thickness with no insulation. Don't get me wrong, for temps in the 60's and up it's comfortable while riding. It's for temps in the 50's on down that I had hoped to use it for as well. It's an easy problem to solve though, I just put on a sweatshirt. Anyway... This is my first purpose built cycle jacket so I don't have any others to compare to, but I am pleased with it.

Going strong

I have used this 2x version for 3 months now(I am 285Lbs at 6'3"). Rode in temperatures from the low 30's to the high 90's. With the liner out it keeps me cool in the hottest of weather while moving. The liner is adequate warmth in the mid 30's and above but you may want a light insulating jacket underneath for colder temps. The jacket with the liner stands up well in the rain and seals nicely. If only they would have produced the 2x in yellow. I tried looking everywhere but ended up with the gray.
