Speed and Strength has an extensive mesh jacket lineup this year with four selections in this category. This Run with The Bulls jacket is on almost the same chassis as the solid color Under the Radar jacket, but with sublimated graphics throughout. The run with the Bulls theme is also found on a pair of armored jeans, a pair of gloves, a pair of riding shoes, and a flex fit ball cap.
This jacket features a breathable polyester shell material called Fierce Mesh, and is a great choice for hot weather street rides. Adjustability is very important with a full mesh jacket because a snug fit is necessary to reduce buffeting. As the air passes through the jacket’s breathable shell, it catches on the armor, making the jacket buffet, sapping you of energy. The Run With The Bulls jacket has adjustability at the waist, in the form of these hook and loop straps, and on the arms, with these three position snap adjusters. You also get adjustability at the cuffs, with hook and loop adjusters and microfiber lining.
Protection comes from CE approved armor in the shoulders, elbows, and back, and there are loops in the rear of the jacket to hook to your belt. There is also hi viz piping across the back to increase your visibility in low light riding conditions.
The main closure zipper is YKK and if you open the jacket up, you can see the fixed mesh liner that promotes airflow and mobility. Storage is rated at just enough, with just the two zippered pockets, but again, this isn’t a touring jacket. This style of mesh jacket is designed to house armor to add protection to your ride, in a minimal package to keep you cool.
