ExoWear Hoodie/Jacket Hybrid (Monday, August 23, 2010 @ 07:08 PM) posted by Canyon Carver
A hybrid between a hoodie and a riding jacket, the Jazmin is set to bloom September 1st, just in time for the fall riding season! Since it can get a little chilly when the leaves start to turn color, this jacket was jazzed up with the addition of Scorpion's exclusive hoodie vest liner. Looks aside, it is what is inside that really counts. As is the case with all of Scorpion's women's wear, the Jazmin was designed to be superior riding gear first and stylish second. To that end, removable CE-approved Exo-Tec armor was incorporated in the elbows and shoulders, while the back was bolstered with a P.E. foam pad hidden in the back-protector pocket. Further enhancing the riding experience is Scorpion's AirVent™ ventilation system - essentially two zippered high-flow air intakepanels in the front of the jacket with two rear vents to maximize airflow over the body's core.
Proving to be more than just another pretty face, the outer shell is constructed of a sturdy 600 denier outer shell, and the water-resistant polyurethane fabric keeps riders dry should it start to sprinkle. However if things should heat up after the ride, the removable hooded vest can be worn by itself... the hoodie fleece features its own drawstring closure and hand warmer pockets.
"The girls will thank us for this jacket," says Scorpion President Rick Miller. "We didn't just make a small version of a man's jacket, but designed a versatile jacket for women who really ride. It's got a great look, a great fit and works well in warm or cold weather," concludes Miller.
MSRP for the Jazmin Jacket: (Sizes XS-XL) $189.95, (Size 2XL) $199.95
