FIRSTGEAR in late July made a splash with nine new jackets — five for men and four for women.
One of the five new men’s Firstgear jackets is the Jaunt (top), retailing for $199.95. It features a UV-resistant polyester outer shell, CE-approved armor at the shoulders and elbows, a waterproof yet breathable Drop-Z liner, a hold-open venting system, high-wicking poly-mesh lining, a large drop tail, a rear pocket and front cargoes, and a one-hand-adjustable exterior waist belt.
One of the four new women’s jackets is the Contour (bottom) retailing for $169.95. It features a polyester mesh outer shell that allows complete airflow.
High-wicking nylon-mesh lining distributes internal moisture and dries quickly. The jacket’s contour shape is tailored specifically to the female form. Other features include a removable waterproof liner, one-hand-adjustable waist belts, zipper-secured side pockets, and CE-approved armor at the shoulders.
