Dayglo mesh jacket good for 60 degrees and above
May 13, 2013(St Louis, MO)
Got for summer jacket. Most other reviews were accurate. I got XL for 5'9", 210 lbs, stocky but not fat and fit is good but no room for thick under layers. Pockets good size, with zippers. I add a wool dickey to cover my throat in 50's. A few minutes to put the liner in/out. On 80 degree day the breeze through the jacket was very nice. Short sleeves under the jacket make a difference in keeping cooler. I would recommend this jacket for summer.

Great jacket, comfortable and versatile for most weather conditions. The liner makes it great for cool days, and taken out the jacket is cool on the hot ones.

Bought a bike after 40 year hiatus & was impressed with how many people in cars were trying to kill me! Bought 1st Gear Rush jacket in day-glo & blk & feel very visible out there. Went thru 3 other jackets to get the right fit, & Motorcycle Superstore treated me well. Had to call on 1 order & spoke with a very helpful woman who took care of my issue. I gave the jacket a 4 on durability only because it's new & hasn't had opportunity to pass the test of time.

Good value for the price. Fit a little small. Great for hot weather riding, will keep you cool. The liner finish details could be better, I use the liner From my other first gear Rainier jacket. I will be willing to pay a little more for a better liner on this jacket

Fit is good, but waist is a bit snug for me. Durability is naturally sacrificed for comfort; mesh will snag, but allows air flow...acceptable trade-off. Elbow pads do float around too much, making me wonder where they will be if I need them. Overall a good item at a good price.

Every Firstgear product I have ever owned has been of the finest quality and durability; the Rush Mesh jacket continues this lineage. Hard to find at this point in the riding season, but Motorcycle Superstore had them in stock and at a great price. My jacket was delivered nicely wrapped and with quality.

I was looking for a summer weight jacket as my First Gear leather jacket was just getting to hot. The Rush jacket fit the bill, this is a great summer jacket. Warm enough on cool days with the liner in, and with the liner out great on hot days. I rated the fit as 4 stars only because of sizing issues that I and my wife had with her First Gear mesh jacket. We both had to order a size larger than we normally wear to get a proper fit.
The price on this site was the best I found.

I am 5'11 and 230 and the XL Tall fits pretty well. As a summer jacket worn for visibility. Would rather wear anything but this obnoxious in your face yellow but definitely feel safer with it on. The wind flows right through it, not bad to wear even on the hottest days. Like the pockets.

Fit true to size. Sleeves are just a little short but for a summer jacket that's ok. Worked very well on some 90+ degree days. Quality of jacket is excellent. Overall a great summer riding jacket. I would buy it again.
Great jacket for the minimalist

I read great reviews on this jacket and the price was good on this website so I gave it a spin. The jacket fits good...not great, I wear it over a t-shirt and find the kevlar a little scratchy against the skin. The armour is nice, the black color is nice, and riding in it in the super heat is awesome as it ventilates quite well. I did 2 x 8hour days riding in the hot sun and I was not uncomfortable. I recommend this jacket.
