Generously Sized Riding Jackets

Girl Gear meets women's needs

3/8/2010

In response to her customers telling her that her motorcycle riding jackets need more room in the bust Shelly Reiner, owner Girl Gear Apparel, redesigned her line of textile jackets to accommodate this need. Shelly says, "I am excited about the sizing because it is better suited to fit the chest and front of women. Some of my friends who only fit in men's jackets are able to fit into these sizes."  

Large vents add versatility for all weather comfort.

For 2010 there are some fun bright colors added to the already great collection of colors and patterns. See new jackets below. All the jackets have a waterproof and wind resistant outer shell, with C.E. rated armor in the shoulders and elbows, and a removable spine protector. All the zippers are waterproof. A Thinsulate vest liner is removable. There are zippers at the hips for adjustment. Shelly, a rider herself, added these additional features to the new jackets:

  • Large venting panels on the front shoulders and across the back
  • Highly visible reflective panel on the upper back
  • Embroidered waist belt
  • Pull cords for the venting in the armpits
  • Snap on shoulder to open collar and secure it open while riding (avoid flapping)
  • Zippers at cuff/forearms to open and apply gloves.
The embroidered waist belt is a stylish touch.
