Olympia GT Air Transition Jacket The concept of a solid body jacket that transforms to an air mesh jacket makes sense if the transition is quick and hassle free. The problem of storing or losing removable panels must also be addressed. Our all seasons GT jacket tackles these issues by offering a roll down, hide away, Mega Vent Panel System that transitions from solid body, to adjustable airflow construction in seconds. The GT is also equipped with a sporty, waterproof, two stage, Thermolite lined, inner jacket giving it multi season, all weather versatility. An authentic Cordura shell with 2000 denier Cordura reinforcement insures maximum abrasion resistance. Outer shell constructed in 500 and 2000 denier Dupont Cordura MVS Mega Vent Panel System at front and back Extended length 12 arm vents Waterproof, Thermolite insulated two stage liner jacket Removable CE approved Motion Flex armor at elbows and shoulders Removable CE approved Motion Flex articulated back protector Cool mesh airflow lining Custom Fit detailing at collar, cuffs, elbows and waist. Comfort neoprene collar insert 3M Scotchlite reflective piping at front, sides and back. 8 connecting zipper for pants Seven storage pockets Two Stage Waterproof Liner Jacket - Sturdy wind and water proof rip stop nylon shell with removable Dupont Thermolite insulation, rib collar, two water proof pockets and interior cell phone pocket.

Protection & Durability
GT is my third Olympia jacket. The other two are Airglide and Bonneville, both are summer jackets. Here are several reasons why I bought Olympia GT jacket: - Olympia jackets fit me better than other jackets I've been able to try on (Tourmaster/Cortech, Joe Rocket, Firstgear, Fielsheer, Alpinestars, and Rev'it.) It's true to size. - Olympia uses Cordura 500/2000 instead of polyester. - Separate waterproof jacket. It's much better than built-in waterproof membrane in Tourmaster jackets or waterproof shell concept used by Firstgear and others. Both significantly reduce breathability. I much prefer to wear a jacket that breathes (90% of my rides) and use specialized rain gear like Tourmaster Defender when it rains (10% of my rides.) Most likely, I will leave both liners, waterproof and insulated, at home and use my Tourmaster Synergy electric jacket instead. - Very comfortable armor that actually works (I know, I've crash tested it.) - Huge arm vents flowing lots of air.
Here's what I don't like about this jacket: - Mega vents concept is great in theory, but the implementation leaves a lot be be desired. There's no room to tuck in those panels. - Because of those panels, there are 8 extra zippers. I'm afraid that in a slide one of them will melt, and a nurse will end up removing melted plastic from an open wound.
Despite of those flaws, there's nothing better on the market in this price range.

First, the company. Revzilla is great to deal with. My jeans had a defect. After I called Revzilla and talked to a customer service rep, they immediately sent me a UPS return label and another pair a jeans. Now the product. I absolutely love these jeans. Good quality, comfortable, look great, fit better than most regular jeans I buy (I'm 5'9", 200 lb. Ordered 36/32, my regular size.) Perforated leather in the butt and knee is comfortable and should help in a slide. However, armor is small and not very comfortable. There's just to room for it. It's also not perforated. I tried to install custom armor, but the pockets are too small. I guess I will be riding without knee armor until I come up with a better idea. These jeans don't provide the same level of protection as Kevlar or leather. Don't come even close. But if you have to ride in jeans, they are way better than regular jeans.
