The MotoTech Scrambler Air Motorcycle Jacket is the newest jacket in terms of age that I own. In addition to this, I already have:
XDI X1 Hydraseal Jacket
RR Gears Masculine
Mahindra Mojo official jacket
Certainly, one would wonder why an additional piece of riding gear? To begin with, the average motorcyclist usually would have one or two riding jackets. The Xtreme Dynamics is used from the monsoon to winter seasons. The RR Gears jacket given its utility quotient makes it an optimal touring jacket. However, until last year the Scala Gears Marvel was my go-to daily use and short rides jacket.
No doubt the RR Gears Jacket is undeniably the best in class, it is one of my favorite jackets. Fast forward to the present, with the onset of Unlock the travelling began. On an average weekend travel within the city limits makes up for the daily work commute for the average motorcyclist. Add to this, with the city traffic some motorcyclists prefer using their jackets even if it’s for urban commute. Besides the safety factor, riding jacket provide utility sans a backpack.
Thus, the average Riding jackets can store:
- Mobile phones
- Power banks
- Small Bottle of Sanitizer
- The Daily use Scala Gears Marvel served me well over the last 4 years and needed to be decommission. Thus, a need for a new jacket
- A lightweight jacket
- Apart from being lightweight, it should be compact enough to fit in limited space (without the liners)
- A two tone to pre-dominantly match the color of my motorcycle, the Ruby Red Mahindra Mojo BS6
- Can be used by my pillion should we decide an impromptu ride on the weekend
- Utility wise, a best fit for urban commute
Well now that we understand purpose, let us get to know the product. Apart from the price tag of 6450/-, the riding jacket has a similar format to the Marvel. With just one exception, its weight. As astounded as I was, the riding jacket is almost weightless. This is a rare trait for a under 7000/- riding jacket. Let us also take into consideration the thermal and rain liners, even then it seemed lighter. The slim fit design easily bolts on to you as a secondary skin.
