    I got to spend some quality time enjoying my new Motorfist Freeride jacket in Maine this weekend. This is an uninsulated jacket made of eVent material which is known for its waterproof ability. I tested it by pouring a large glass of water on the sleeve and the water literally flew away from the material almost as if it was afraid of it. Impressive! eVent is also well known for its breathability and rugged, yet lightweight construction. Temps were in the mid 20's and I wore an Under Armor BASE 2.0 shirt against my skin followed by a Motorfist jersey. After that, I put on my Motorfist Revy vest which is constructed of 80g of Primaloft Gold insulation & ripstop polyester fabric. This vest is incredibly light and I was a bit nervous as to whether or not I was going to be warm enough! It didn't feel like I was wearing much for insulation as all of this stuff is incredibly thin and lightweight in nature. Finally, I put on the Freeride jacket and hit the trail. Over the course of two days, I managed to ride 372 miles in drastically varying trail conditions. From technical low speed moguls to "throttle to the bars" high speed runs. I was never cold all weekend. This is a true testament to theory of comfort and layering. At sustained speeds in excess of 70+ mph I could feel a difference in warmth on my arms compared to my chest. My arms felt cooler in nature as they didn't have the coverage offered by the Motorfist Revy vest. (Motorfist does offer a Revy jacket as well) While my arms felt cooler while running high speeds, I could not feel any wind penetrating the jacket which I think is worth noting. I think this all speaks well for the additional protection the Revy line provides. During the technical and whooped out sections of trail I also encountered some waterbars and mud due to the early season conditions. A little mud and water splashed up on the jacket which was easily wiped away without leaving any marks due to its repellant properties. While working much harder and exerting more energy in the technical stuff, the side pockets can be opened up allowing some cool air inside the jacket if need be since they are mesh lined on the inside. I see a pro and a con to this feature. The con being you can't keep stuff in these pockets if you plan on keeping them open! Also these side pockets are stitched higher on the jacket than you may be accustomed to for the reason being they were designed to be easily accessible if your are wearing a backpack at the same time. However, when not wearing a backpack, they may feel a little awkward when placing your hands into the pockets while taking a break and looking to warm your hands up a bit without gloves on. Again - convenient if you're wearing a backpack, perhaps not so convenient if you are not. Worth noting, Motorfist has a small zippered pocket on the sleeve of most of their jackets which is a great feature for keeping your credit card or some cash easily available during gas stops, etc... but this jacket doesn't have that small pocket. I really wish it did as I think its one of the great little features that usually sets Motorfist apart from their competitors. I replaced my Klim Tomahawk jacket with this Freeride jacket for this season. I like the slightly added torso length of the Motorfist jacket offers and I feel the jacket is made of a much more durable quality. This jacket is ready to be hammered on and feels like it can take quite a bit of abuse in comparison. It also comes with a removable hood and the zipper for the hood tucks away nicely under a secure flap on the bottom edge of the collar making it completely invisible. The jacket is a really neat design that looks highly unique compared to the million other options out there. I even received a couple of compliments on the jacket on my first trip! I'm one of those guys who's totally addicted to gear, and I feel this is one of the best looking and finest performing no-nonsense shells on the market. Well done Motorfist!

    This jacket is the toughest jacket I have seen yet, plus it looks fantastic. I opted for this jacket over the Alpha due to looks alone, but was pleasantly surprised the instant I rode with it on. It is very good at keeping just the right amount of heat in while layering, and keeping snow out due to its slightly extended back. The only complaint I have about the jacket is the placement of the pockets on the front, they are hard to access while wearing the jacket (at least to my long arms) as they are very close to the armpit. They are shaped so it is next to impossible for something to accidentally fall out even while open which is great, but just a tad too high for me. This is my only complaint, so by no means does it take away enough for this jacket to not be 5 stars. The cuffs in the sleeves are actually long enough for people who have long arms like myself to use them, never before has this been the case for me. Overall a very tough, good looking jacket that performs phenomenally.

    I wore this Jacket all Last season with the freeride Pant and it was awesome. I wish there was a pocket on the inside to put a cell phone in!

    The freeride coat is very impressive, rode with it all season and never had an issue. Zippers work really well in all types of weather, even with some ice build up they are still easy to use. I never had an issue with getting wet, extremely waterproof. Pockets are huge and great for storage. This is uninsulated gear but still keeps you very warm being wind proof. I use this stuff doing backcountry guiding and definitely have to trust my gear for all conditions and I trust this gear.

    You can not go wrong with choosing the Freeride jacket. Over a thousand miles with this jacket deep in the mountains and it has held up to every test. Great fit and super water proof. It is a thighter fit which is great for jumping around the machine and sliding through the trees. I would suggest layering up with the Next to Skin gear. They make a great pair. A+ on this design

    as a avid backcountry rider and his climb racer, it is super important to have a jacket that is warm, rugged, and light weight. This jacket has it all. I can't tell you how many times i have been going through trees real fast on a technical sidehill and my arms have caught branches left and right, with this jacket I've never had a tear in that situation. On a cold day it blocks out the elements and keeps me warm... on a warm day it breaths nicely with the vents opened so I stay cool. Not to mention it is one of the best looking jackets on the market!

    I really like this coat so much. Never got wet all year, and the fit and finish is amazing. Highly recommend this coat for mountain riders.
