Might be worth a shot at that price, I might go for one, time to replace my favorite 15 year old FirstGear jacket. I prefer light colored jackets in the summer (black is just way too hot)

The Highland is a 10+ year old design - venting and armor has changed a lot over that time, also those older designs use a waterproof liner instead of waterproof exterior. Despite being a bit old, it's a steal at the price -- I 'm torn between the Highland and the Klim Dakar on sale for $222.

Just note that the Klim Dakar was built to wear offroad elbow pads and chest protector underneath the jacket. Fit may not be ideal without them. It is more of a hardcore adventure or enduro jacket than a touring type jacket.

LIght colour available too. Too close to my Scott Eclipse which cost me 3x the price. I think FortNine is reasonable on returns if fit is off. Venting is a problem with most 3 season until you get into the $$$ versions
Free shipping on this too.

I tried one on last year and and it seems to fit the same as other KLIMs once the standard armor is installed (I ride with CE elbow and back protection). I like a light color, unlined textile jacket for around town and my daily commute to the office -- need something to replace my 12 year old and tired First Gear textile jacket.

My 15 year old Joe Rocket mesh still works well as my go to jacket in Australia - durable hardly covers it. And it has the waterproof internal liner which I really like.
If I did not have the Eclipse I'd grab one of Highlands. I like that kind of arm fitment and the velcro on the neck which I think is better than the snaps which often are either too loose or too tight.
I use my Scott Eclipse for touring - keeps me dry and warm ...too warm at times.

The Highland has a chest vent with no membrane .....that allows you to open up the sleeves wider with the snaps and gets airflow going.

Just saw these on the FC Moto site $79 if you take small or medium. Not bad for Gortex.



compare at $149 on sale for the earlier version

I don't like GoreTex (or any PUL linings) for hand, head or footwear. It's OK for cold weather, but when it's hot that just don't breathe well enough and end up stinky and slimy. I keep surgical gloves under my seat, they work for heavy rain, and leather Wellingtons on my feet.

Anyone else wear Wellingtons? I learned this when living in Texas. I rode with a few farmers who swore by their 'farm boots' for riding, they convinced me to dump my $400 Gaernes for $100 Wellingtons -- I have never looked back. They fit better, are easy to walk in, and you can wear them when not on the bike. Cabela Roughneck's are my fav -- the steel shank is great for adv riding -- at $100 they are less expensive than the cheapest Fox or O'Neal junk-rider boots.
