Bering Balistik Textile Jacket - Black
Customer Product Reviews
Great jacket: dries quickly, looks smart
This jacket comes up small. I'm 5'10" with a 34" waist and I'm in the XL! I don't use the back protector as I have one in the air jacket that I wear over the top, but with a t-shirt, a thin fleece and the jackets own lining in, this is comfortable but snug on me. The quality of the jacket seems excellent. I have been in some rough weather recently and there is nothing getting through. I love the sleeve zips that make it so easy to get my gloves underneath, and the material sheds water easily, so it all dries in just a few hours at room temperature. My only feedback with the whole jacket is that the neck area is not too comfortable. It has a very clever adjustable popper to adjust the circumference of the collar but the material is not so comfortable against the neck and again it is coming up quite small so that when I wear something padded inside of it, it feels tight. With my winter balaclava on for my 30 min commute I'm finding that I'm ok zipping the front up and not using the neck popper and as above nothing is getting through. But before I next go on a tour I'm going to want to sort it out. For the sake of the extra material to make a comfortable and easy to close flap under the chin I do not understand why more jackets do not feature this and it would certainly make this jacket 5 stars IMJ. As it is, it is only 4 stars but still offers excellent value in this price range. I also use the matching trousers which are equally good quality.
